Thank you! That reset works! Brother walked me through that one time. None of my other Brother printers did this. This feature is a ploy that Brother created to sell more cartridges, undoubtedly.

SOURCE: We've replaced the toner on a Brother HL-2150n

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

From Brother.com: Description:

  • The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.



  • The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
  1. Open the front cover of the printer.
step1.gif
  1. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.
step2.gif
  1. Close the front cover.
Caution
    Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

You sometimes need a code to reset the counter on your printer. Which code depends on your model.

I have a Samsung ML-2525 BW laser printer. Recently, the red bar second from the top started flashing and then it went solid. I thought this was because of the ink toner, and the cartridge was running low...


I guess it FixYa didn't accept my (very long, but totally correct) solution that I took the time to type. Because I refused to "sign in".
Here's the short version. Load Paper. The same thing happened to me. I replaced the toner cartridge with a new one (because of a FLASHING red light for several weeks) after the red light went to STEADY red. But it still would not print. The paper was "out". When I'd refilled the paper-tray, it printed fine. I had just ASSUMED that the steady-red light meant toner was finally OUT. WRONG! That steady-red light had nothing-to-do with toner; it meant "you're out-of-paper". Don't get confused like I did. Refill the paper-tray. Then take that expensive NEW toner cartridge OUT, and put the OLD toner cartridge back in. And keep using the "dregs" of the toner out of the old cartridge for several more weeks. And DON'T get confused by the paper-is-out condition making that red light STEADY.

The printer quit printing and the toner light came on. Replaced the toner with a brand new toner and its still not printing. Recommendations?


Is the printer still asking for a new toner..?

If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0

TONER LIGHT STAYS ON WITH NEW TONER CARTRIDGE


Hi,

If the main problem is just the toner light on then what you could do after installing the new toner is resetting the printer. You could do that by powering the printer off, open the front cover (as if you were to replace the toner) with the front cover open and the printer off push and hold the two buttons on the printer and turn the printer on while holding down the buttons then once the bottom light stays on solid, release the two buttons and that should reset the printer.
Now if the toner light is blinking that means that you have reached the 30,000 page mark and the Photoconductor needs to be replaced. If that is not the case you can follow this link to a procedure where it will explain how to reset the Photoconductor. http://bit.ly/91SWS3

Toner light will not go off


Take the drum/toner out and with the front cover open press the blue 'go' button once, then put the drum/toner back in and press the button once again, then close the cover.

should reset the toner for you
