A Brother TN-247BK Toner Reset will restart the printer’s toner detection and reset the page counter. The Brother TN-247BK toner fits into many Brother printers and can be reset by yourself in a few simple steps .

When should I reset the Brother TN-247BK toner?

After every toner change, the Brother laser printer should actually recognize the new toner and automatically reset the page counter. Sometimes the toner LED on the printer starts to flash even though the toner is not empty. This can happen, for example, with compatible toner cartridges (these often have higher amounts of toner powder). A manual Brother TN-247BK toner reset on the printer can quickly solve the problem and restart the toner detection.
