Sun 27th Nov 22:32 2011: Brother HL4040CN Laser Printer - How to reset the toner counts to increase toner life

I found this information from a blog which Google's cache still remembers, but which is currently redirecting to some celebrity gossip magazine, so presumably the domain has expired, or something similar.

These instructions worked for my Brother HL4040CN colour laser printer. In Step 4, the "B.TNR" represents the black toner, "Y.TNR" is the yellow toner, "M.TNR" is the magenta toner, and "C.TNR" is the cyan toner, so you can choose which counters you would like to reset.

1)Open the front door – the message ‘Cover is Open’ will appear.

2) Press and hold the cancel button.

3) Press the Reprint button – the message ‘Reset Parts Life’ should appear. Release the Cancel button.

4) Then do the following:

B.TNR-H – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

B.TNR-S – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

Y.TNR-H – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

Y.TNR-S – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

M.TNR-H – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

M.TNR-S – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

C.TNR-H – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

C.TNR-S – Select ok, accepted should display. Press ^

5) Cancel

6) Close the front door.

Another menu is available if you press "GO" instead of "Cancel", for other components (Drum, Laser, etc)
