Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J

Product is Brother HL-4150CDN laser printer. The LCD display is saying Replace Toner (Back) I have 2 black toner carts available. One that I slightly used previously before swapping it out with a new one...


Had this same problem on the same printer. Here is the solution.
Open the front cover of the printer and press "Cancel" & "Secure". This will access a secret menu that will let you reset the toner counter. There are 12 settings in all (3 per color).
Two thumbs up going out to TonerHacker007 on the fixyourownprinter.com forums for this one.
