It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.

Before refilling, clean entire cartridge units. Remote its cleaning blade and clean it with an IP solutions and make sure no bends in cleaning blade. Do not mix new toner powder with old one. Also clean plastic portion below the developer roller also. Then the same complaint found, clean the LSU unit of the machine. Now it work properly.

Sounds like a poor quality toner was put in your cartridge. If you are using remanufactured cartridges see your remanufacturer for a replacement. If you are using OEM cartridges contact Brother directly and they can sort out the issues and supply replacement cartridges.

If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

try replacing the drum unit.If that doesn't work look at replacing the fusing unit.there may be a blue slider on the front top of the drum unit;if so slide it back and forth 3 or 4 times making sure it is left in the same position as when you started.

With the computer off will the printer still make a copy? If the printer can still make a copy stand alone, then try deleteing the printer and reinstalling the printer driver.
