Check to make sure you removed all the tape and plastic from the toner that is supposed to be removed. If that is not it, it could be the little connector that reads the toner is dirty or broken. You can try cleaning it off (maybe just dust...try some compressed air) or it could be done for if it can't recognize the new toner.

Also make sure the toner you bought is fully compatible with your model printer.

Good Luck

I assume "Prints in charcoal" means dirty printouts. The toner is not staying on the paper?

Sounds to me like a bad "Fuser Assembly" problem.

You can source one from:


Hope this helps

How to get the page count on a Brother HL-6050

To obtain a page count (also called a meter reading) from a Brother HL-6050 printer, follow the steps below. (This procedure also applies to the HL-6050D and the HL-6050DN models.)

A. When the machine is on and ready to print, press any of the following keys to bring up the menu: Set, Back, +, or -.

B. The first menu heading that appears is Information; press Set to select it.

C. Use the + or - keys to scroll through the Information menu until you see Maintenance.

D. Press Set to select it.

E. The first option that you'll see is Page Counter; press Set to view the count.

The number of pages printed so far will appear on the screen. Once you've seen or recorded this number, keep pressing the Back button until you're back at the Ready screen.

If you would rather have a printout with the page count on it, you can get that instead by simply pressing the Set button three times from the Ready screen. The first time you press it you'll bring up the menus, the second time you'll select the Information menu, and the third time you'll select Print Settings. When you choose Print Settings, three pages of information will print out, showing supply usage, jam counters, and machine settings. On the second page, about halfway down the page under the <Device Status> heading, you'll see the page count. Beneath the page count, you can also find the number of pages printed from each paper tray, as well as the page count broken down by paper size (for example, letter-size paper, legal-size paper, or envelopes).

go to company web site and download the driver

Check out your setup on Word (or whatever word processing app you are using). Make sure the Print setup is set to all pages. Sounds like maybe it's set to a fixed number.

File>Print>Print Range: All

If you are printing spreadsheets (e.g. Excel) make sure you have set the Print Area correctly.

Its a fuser error.
When you repair or replace the fuser try this, oh its a while since i had this problem so i will give you a rough idea for the fix.
turn on machine and when the red light flashes press the button ten times and this will reset it.
you may have to press the button as soon as it flashes or otherwise after the first or second flash start pressing ten times.
sorry but the brain will not just remember the exact sequence, but you get the idea.
if you are still in trouble you can email me and i will root out my noted for the exact fix.

Firmware is the directions for how a device 'thinks' (internally)

Have you tried resetting it? I can't remember all the steps, I see some of the other comments have them but just to be sure you didn't miss anything I suggest you download the manual and go step-by-step. You can find one here - Brother HL-2270DW manual
