Brother Laser Printers
Error Message "Toner Life End"

MFC-7440N
MFC-8460N.

Brother suggest taking the unit to a service center.
Message doesn't go even after replacing BOTH Toner & Drum.

Try this

Open door
press Clear/Back key
press *00
press OK

Do not choose anything for drum replacement.
When drum replacement menu comes up, press the * and then 00, then press OK.

This might well work for other Brother Laser Printers too

I have an MFC7820N which claims my toner life is at an end and there is no way that can be true! I cannot (seemingly) do what you suggest - perhaps I have a different dashboard. Would appreciate any help, as the toner cartridge is heavy with toner and only purchased a few weeks ago - usually lasts 3 months. (Plus sprays toner all over the place when shaken!!!)
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Thumbs Up

This worked great! .
Fixed our Brother MFC-8660DN and 2 new toner cartridges are now usable.
Try this:

Open Toner replacement door
press Clear/Back key
press *00
press OK


((Do not choose anything for drum replacement. ))
When drum replacement menu comes up, don't select anything, just press the * and then 00, then press OK.
Display says "Accepted" !!
This might well work for other Brother Laser Printers too
