- Open the front cover that gives you access to the toners.
Press and hold the “Secure Print” and “Cancel” buttons at the same time. You will see “K-TNR-STD” displayed on the screen (if not displayed, see Note 2 below).
Using the “+” and “-” buttons select the toner you want to reset.
Press the “Ok” button.
It will display “Ok?”. If you hit the “Ok” button again it will reset the low toner message.
Close the lid.
Note 1: for selecting the correct toner you should understand the cartridge code system Brother uses:
- Black is K, Magenta is M, Cyan is C and Yellow is Y
- TNR = toner
- STR = starter cartridge (the toner cartridges that came with your printer)
- STD = standard toner
- HY = high yield toner (some models)
Note 2: You may need to clear print jobs – they can hinder the printer from resetting. If you have any problems with resetting your printer, physically unplug the printer’s power cord for at least 10 seconds.
The following models use the same consumables, and you should be able to reset them as well:
DCP-9010CN, HL-3040CN, HL-3045CN, HL-3070CW, HL-3075CW,
DCP9010CN, HL3040CN, HL3045CN, HL3070CW, HL3075CW.
