People who use Brother Printers, which use TN-420 or TN-450 toner cartridges, might encounter toner error messages such as “Toner Low”, “Replace Toner” or “Toner Life End”. As the screen shows the cartridge you are using is empty or not recognized, you think you have to replace a new toner cartridge, or you can not continue printing. But after installing a new cartridge, the problem still exists, and you will find that this happens with both OEM and compatible laser toner cartridges. It doesn’t mean the cartridge you bought is damaged, the reason is the cartridge didn’t reset properly, so the printer couldn’t recognize it as new one. Don’t worry, it is easy to reset:
