Brother HL-1112 - Continue Mode

The printer normally requires the toner cartridge to be changed before all of the toner has been used. This is to ensure the quality of the print stays high. Putting the printer in to “Continue Mode” will use all of the remaining toner in cartridge. The print will eventually start to fade, and quality will become poor.

  • Press the power button seven (7) times to enter “Continue Mode”.

  • Press the power button seven (7) times again to cancel “Continue Mode”.
