One of the more common issues for some Brother printers is that the machine cannot recognize remanufactured toner cartridges. The new drive shaft configuration might have resistance to recognize aftermarket flag gears, in which the gears tell the printer that an aftermarket toner has been installed and printer will not recognize the toner.
Resetting the page counter for Brother TN221 and TN225 toner models is the most efficient way to get an aftermarket unit working immediately. Without having to go through the hassle of multiple installing and turning the printer on and off, a few simple steps will get your printer up and running. Below are the resetting steps that can be a life safer especially when printing out documents and reports cannot be delayed any longer:
Printer Models: HL-3140CW and HL-3170CDW
1. Open the front cover of the printer to access cartridges
2. With the front cover open, simultaneously press the Secure and Cancel buttons
3. The reset menu will now appear on the LCD display
5. Scroll through the menu to select a color and yield to reset
5. The LCD will read "Accepted" once the reset is complete
Printer Model: MFC-9130CW, MFC-9330CDW, and MFC-9340CDW
