Brother toner cartridge low toner override - fixyourownprinter.com

So the Brother color printer started pleading for a new set of colour toner carts ($270). All three carts ran out at the same time, hmm. Time for a Google, which unearthed the following on a blog.

Brother MFC 9440CN Toner Life End Message... The Final Solution!!!

1. With power on, open the toner access main door (You will get a "door open" message in the LCD.)
2. Hit the "Clear/Back" button and... ta-dah!!! you go right to the Toner Reset Menu' (cue Vienna Boy's choir sounds here).
3. Using the up ^ Down > "Search" arrow buttons, you can then scroll through reset options for each of the printer's [4] toner cartridges!
Code: B. = black; C. = cyan; M. = magenta and Y. = yellow
4. For each for these cartridges is the option to reset for low yield = S (small?) or High Yield = H
5. Using the number keypad, select option #1 (to reset each to the size you have installed.
6. Hit the "Clear/Back" button to get out of the menu, close door ad the problem is FINALLY solved.

Just tried it, works great!

I am impressed !! I have a brother MFC9840CDW and it has been complaining about "Toner low" for all the color cartridges for a week.
In this situation it wouldn't even print mono pages and drove me nuts.
Finally, I found this suggestion and tried out. "tada" it worked !!
Thanks for tips !!!

these directions don't seem to coincide for the Hl 4040 CN. Anyone know the right way to reset or override for this model?
