Sometimes the Brother HL-2230 does not reset properly after putting in a new cartridge, and leaves you with a ‘toner low’ or ‘toner empty’ message. It is possible to manually reset the printer to remove this message:
After changing a DR420 drum unit in a Brother HL-2230, the printer’s page count needs to be reset. This will turn off the drum warning light on the printer.
Simply open the front cover, and hold the “GO” button until all four LED’s are lit. Release the “GO” button and close the front cover.
