it’s so annoying… the brother devices report „toner low“ and STOP PRINTING 😀 based on the page-count… not the actual toner-lewels. (there used to be „windows“ on the side of the toners so you could see (and the device detect) if the toner is actually empty)

Some cheeky printer-manufacturers take it as far as chipping toners and making the device REFUSE (!) to print more than XXXX pages with tat toner….

luckily with brother it’s just a software reset… but a hiden one 🙂

  1. open the toner box
  2. keep the * (Asterisk) pressed
  3. K-STD = Black Toner

take the black toner out, shake it a little and then put it back in and reset the toner like this 🙂

THANKS FOR THIS AMAZING HOWTO! 🙂
