Recently one of my clients bought here a batch of Brother MFC-L2700DW. I was NOT informed about this, and when I had bags with empty toner cartridges in front of me and there was absolutely no time to buy reset gears, since the client needed refilled cartridges the next day (as always), it turned out what to reset on this model toner counter from the machine menu.

In fairness, it should be noted that this can be done Not only in this model, (thanks to our forum for this information), I just checked that it works.

So, in order to reset the toner counter of the Brother MFC-L2700DW, you need to open the front cover, press and hold the Menu button (about 5 seconds).

We are waiting for the message Reset counter TNR-STD A on the screen, release the Menu button and use the Up arrow button to select the inscription TNR-STR A.

Also, through the menu, you can reset the drum counter, but this is done in a slightly different way. The drum itself is designed for 12,000 prints.

The starter toner cartridge, judging by the drum report, worked only 246 sheets:

Naturally, I did not begin to reset the drum, since this should only be done when replacing it in order to reset the voltage correction applied to the drum unit.

The starter cartridge itself differs from the usual one only by the absence of a reset gear, its bunker is not limited by anything, and it can be filled with both a regular filling and an increased one. I refill with Brother type 2.0 universal toner.

The other day a problem with the Brother MFC-1810R printer arose in relatives. After refilling the starter cartridge, the printer requires replacing the toner. To solve this problem, the printer needs to reset the toner counter. Since the TN-1075 cartridge is distributed among Brother machines, the instruction described here will work for DCP-1510R, DCP-1512R, HL-1110R, HL-1112R, MFC-1810R, MFC-1815R.

So, if your printer displays the “Change toner” error, then you need to do the following sequence of actions:

  • Remove the cartridge and paper from the printer.
  • Remove the toner from the housing. To do this, use the special lever on the cartridge.
  • Insert only the base of the housing into the printer. On the left you will see a button to reset the counter.
  • Insert your hand through the paper tray, feel and hold the button with your finger.
  • Close the cover through which the cartridge is inserted.
  • Wait for the mechanism inside the printer to spin. As soon as it spins, Release the counter reset button for 1-2 seconds (no more), then press it again until the mechanism inside the printer stops.
  • Further two options are possible:
  • If the printer clicks and displays an error “Replace toner”, then you could not catch the correct moment in the previous step (step 6). Go back to step 1 and Do all the steps again (I was able to reset the toner counter correctly only from the fourth time).
  • If you did everything correctly, the device will not peep, the printer display will display the “Change toner” error. Now pull the cartridge base out of the printer, insert the toner, and then put the Assembled cartridge back in. The printer will now work until the next cartridge refill.
