The “Replace Toner” message will appear on your laser printer when the machine thinks that it has come to the end of its useful life. This will normally occur many prints after the “Toner Low” message that preceeds it.
Unlike more serious toner messages, these Brother laser printers will let you enter “Continue Mode” and continue printing until the toner within your TN2410 or TN2420 toner cartridge physically runs out.
Are there any disadvantages to “Continue Mode”?
As mentioned previously, Continue Mode allows you to use your Brother TN2410 or TN2420 until the toner physically runs out. The down side to this being once the toner runs out, your pages will fade. If you are printing a large amount, this may be pretty inconvenient. As such, we would recommend having a spare original or remanufactured cartridge to hand once it is in “Continue Mode”.
How do I enter “Continue Mode”?
The process of entering Continue mode varies from machine to machine, but thankfully the process is pretty easy. We have broken down the various ways of doing it below and have grouped them by Brother model number.

Why is my printer not listed?
Sadly a few Brother mono laser printers do not have a reset that can easily be performed from the machine. These printer require the toner be replaced before you can carry on and include the HL-L2310D, HL-L2350DW, HL-L2370DN, HL-L2370DW and HL-L2370DW XL.
