If you want to disable the “Toner Continue Mode”, follow the steps down to step 7 and select “Stop” instead of “Continue” before pressing “Go”.
Note: You might experience poor print quality when using the “Toner Continue Mode”. This is because the toner cartridge is working beyond its estimated life.
Also, you will still have “Replace Toner”, “Toner Low” or “Toner Ended” messages being displayed on your Printer’s screen. Hence, the Brother Printer replace toner override only allows you to continue printing, but it doesn’t clear the error messages.
