How do you clear a Low Toner message on a Brother MFC 8480DN fax/scanner/copier?

I replaced the toner and drum, it's full.

I don't have that exact model, but try this (it works on my Brother MFCs and other Brother MFCs and should work on yours):

(1) With power on, open the toner access door.

(2) Hit the Clear/Back button and it should take you to the <Toner Reset> menu.

(3) Using the Up and Down arrow buttons, scroll through the reset options for each of the toner cartridges:


(4) For each toner cartridge, there is an option to reset for the Low Yield or High Yield model.

(5) Using the number buttons, select Option 1 to reset each cartridge for the size that you have recently installed.

(6) Hit the Clear/Back button to get out of the Menu, close the toner door, and the Toner Low message should be gone.

Regards, Joe
