Brother TN227 Printer Toner Reset

Brother printers are known for their reliability and high-quality printing. However, it can be frustrating to encounter toner issues such as inaccurate toner levels or the dreaded "no toner" message. Don’t worry, this blog will guide you through the steps of your Brother TN227 printer toner reset.

I.When Should I Reset Toner on My Brother Printer?

When you replace the toner cartridge with a new one and the printer continues to indicate that the toner is low or empty, it is often necessary to reset the toner on your Brother printer. Resetting the toner counter does not add more toner to the toner cartridge; it simply allows the printer to accurately identify the new cartridge's capacity. Here are some common situations when you may need to reset the toner:

After Replacing Toner: When you install a new Brother TN227 toner cartridge, the printer may still record the status of the old toner. Resetting ensures that the printer recognizes the new toner cartridge and accurately reflects toner levels.

Toner Low/Empty Message: If your printer displays a toner low or empty message, even after inserting a new toner cartridge, it indicates that the toner counter needs to be reset. This allows the printer to correctly recognize the new toner level.

Print Quality Issues: In some cases, you may experience print quality issues even if the toner is not completely exhausted. Sometimes resetting the toner can resolve these issues by prompting the printer to recalibrate and adjust settings for a new toner cartridge.

Refilled or Third-Party Toner Cartridges: If you refilled a toner cartridge or installed a third-party (non-Brother) toner cartridge, the printer might not automatically recognize the new toner amount. The toner counter usually needs to be reset to synchronize the printer with the actual amount of toner in the cartridge.

Error Message or Blinking LED Light: Some Brother printers use error messages or blinking LED lights to indicate that toner is low or empty. If the error persists after replacing the toner, you may need to reset to clear the message and resume normal printing.
