it’s so annoying… the brother devices report “toner low” and STOP PRINTING 😀 based on the page-count… not the actual toner-levels. (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 hidden one 🙂
- open the toner box
- keep the * (Asterisk) pressed
- 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! 🙂
