Frequently Asked Questions


How can I get rid of the ‘Low Toner’ message after installing a compatible toner cartridge on my Brother HL-2280DW printer?

After putting in the new toner cartridge, just leave the front cover of your printer open. Then, press and release the ‘clear’ button once. After that, press and release the ‘start’ button, and then press the ‘up’ arrow until you see ‘12’ on the display. Now, close the cartridge cover and press the ‘OK’ button. You will then see the ‘Accepted’ message on the display, and the ‘Low Toner’ message is gone.


What does the error message ‘Drum End Soon’ mean?

The ‘Drum End Soon’ error message indicates that the drum unit is nearing the end of its service life and needs to be replaced soon.


When the cartridge says it has a page yield of 2,600, does it mean I can print up to exactly 2,600 pages?

Yes, but this is if you are printing at about 5% coverage, which is a small memo or letter approximately 1,500 characters. If your printed pages have lots of graphics, charts, and images, you get less than the maximum page yield as these require more toner.
