The message `Toner Life End` indicates the toner cartridge has reached the end of its expected life. To clear the `Toner Life End` message, install a brand new, out of the box toner cartridge.
How can I override my HP ink cartridge? Remove and reinstall the indicated cartridge slots 2-3 times until it firmly sits in place to override the HP ink cartridge error. After doing this, turn off the printer and remove all the cartridges.
The No Toner message appears if the toner cartridge or the toner cartridge and drum unit assembly is not installed correctly. Remove the toner cartridge and drum unit assembly. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit, and reinstall the toner cartridge back in the drum unit.
You`ll be able to keep printing until the black toner runs out. When the black toner runs out, you won`t be able to print until you replace it.
Toner Save Mode allows the printer to use less toner on each page. Activating this mode extends the life of the toner cartridge and reduces the cost per page compared to the normal mode; however, the print quality is reduced.
To extend the life of your toner, remove the toner cartridge, cover it with a paper towel, and shake to redistribute the powder. Unclog the nozzle — Clogged toner cartridge nozzles can lead to skipping and inconsistent output. Using a damp paper towel, wipe the bottom of the cartridge.
Verify the toner cartridge is installed correctly.

If you install a new toner cartridge but the “Toner Low”, “Replace Toner” or “Toner Ended” error indication remains, the toner cartridge may not be installed correctly. Reinstall the toner cartridge, referring to the instructions on how to replace the toner cartridge.

We recommend using genuine Brother drum units and toner cartridges. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at a pre-set temperature that is matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations.
Remove your new cartridge and replace it with the old one. Leave your printer and go and do something else for 10 minutes. Replace the old cartridge with the new one again. These two steps alone often resolve the issue, so see if your printer now recognises your new cartridges.

Waste Toner Cartridge is empty but printer is still telling me to replace it
ANSWER : All of the ones I’ve seen are optical. Light shines through a transparent section of the waste box onto a photocell. If toner builds up past that area, it gives a warning to replace it. Possibly toner dust has gotten on the photocell.
