    Admit not familiar with toners. I have just checked out some other Brother ans/Q It would appear there is a reset button to reset the printer after a new replacement.

We've replaced the toner on a Brother HL-2150n with a brand new shop bought cartridge and the only thing lit is the Toner light, nothing will print. We've opened it up, shook the toner, took the toner out,...

Most Brother printers need manually reseting when either the drum or toner is replaced. Sometimes it doesn't need it and sometimes it does. Don't ask me why because I have no clue lol. What you do is open the Front Panel button that corresponds on the top with the blue botton. If you hold it from the inside of the printer until all the lights flash ontop of the pritner, then you let go and close the door. This should reset the printer. I hope this helps and I explained myself well lol

Brother Printer 2150N - toner light has come on & toner is OK

Bought a 2150 in 2007. In 2008 toner light came on. Bought a new toner cartridge and installed. Light would not go off. Called Brother. They had us do the following:
1) Turn power off
2) Open front cover
3) Press white button (left side) 2 times and hold
4) Turn power on
5) Press white button 6 times and hold. All 3 lights should come on.
6) Close cover
7) Press blue button 3 times. Should print demo page.

We took the new cartridge out and saved it. The original is still working fine.

Brother 2040 yellow toner light on & won't print. Toner just replaced 8 weeks ago. Printer purchased 6 months ago.

You have a one year warranty with Brother if you need repair. You might shake the toner, or put a small electrical tape over the little round windows on the toner cart. to use the rest of the toner, and press the go button 3 times to print the report that tells you how many prints you've made, you could just be out of toner again...
