Anyone have a Brother Laser HL-2280DW printer?

Recommended Posts

I just "ran out" of toner. Anything I can do to extend the life of the cartridge in this model. I've tried shaking the cartridge gently back and forth and have covered some holes on the sides of the cartridge that look like they could be "eyes". I've also tried holding down the copy button for 10 seconds, which is a trick that I read worked on earlier models.


Any other thoughts?

You have to cover both eyes, plus do the reset sequence. I don't have your exact printer, I have the HL-5370DW, so if this sequence doesn't work, search around to find the right one for your printer model. I did this over a month ago and still printing strong.


Does make you wonder just how shady Brother is.:glare:
