Solution: Enable continuous mode
What is Brother MFC continuous mode ?
The print life of Brother toner cartridges is based upon their ability to continue to achieve guaranteed print quality. As the toner cartridge is used, the supply of available toner is consumed and the functional components become physically worn. The LED indication to replace toner cartridge flashes when the supply of toner and/or material deterioration reach a level at which the print quality can no longer be guaranteed.
You can continue printing with the toner cartridge beyond its estimated print life by enabling “Continue Mode”.
How to enable Continuous Mode ?
Press the GO button 7 times (quickly). All of the LEDs should flash twice, and the Ready LED should turn on. Continue mode is now enabled.
To disable Continue Mode, please follow the steps below:
Press the GO button 7 times (quickly). All of the LEDs should flash once. Continue mode is now disabled.
