Refill instructions foR Brother TN2220 / TN2210 / TN2010. how to reset the cartridge.
Released in November 2010, the Brother HL-2270 printer engine is based on a new 24/27ppm, 1200 dpi laser engine.
These machines have a 1st page out in approx 8.5 seconds, and come standard with 8 or 32Mb of memory depending on the machine.
The HL-2270DW printers also have duplexing built in. Our HL-2270DW machine came with a starter cartridge yield 700 pages (a low yield TN cartridge without a reset gear).

Refilling your TN2210 & TN2220 Toner Cartridges
Besides the starter cartridge, there are two different yielding toner cartridges available for these machines: the TN2210 TN2220. The TN2110 cartridge is rated for 1,200 pages at 5%. The T2220 is rated for 2,600 pages at 5%.
The drum unit is new as well: part DR2200 is rated for 12,000 pages.
(The fuser assembly, paper feed assembly and laser unit's all have a stated life of 50,000 pages. The printer itself is rated for 50,000 pages, so basically when these parts are done so is your printer !)
There is a reset gear that resets the printer each time a new toner cartridge is installed. In our machine, the starter cartridge was marked just "TN" and had the reset gear section completely blocked off.
As with previous Brother cartridges, the waste toner is repelled out of the drum cartridge, picked up by the developer roller in the
toner cartridge, and brought back into the supply chamber.
That is why there will always be a good amount of toner left in the supply chamber when the cartridge is finished. This remaining toner MUST be completely removed from the supply chamber before adding new toner.
According to our tests, there will be approximately 30-40g of toner remaining when the cartridge reports empty. This is normal. The remaining toner however, as stated above, is waste only and must be thrown out or there will be backgrounding issues
