Brother was, and still is, the leader within the industry of printing, by offering several categories, ranging from the affordable models below $200, and going up to devices which cost several thousands of dollars. With that many products in the back-pocket, Brother was quite smart with the Toner arrangements for them. Every time they present a next generation of printers, they usually include a certain toner model which is compatible with the whole line. In this example we have the Brother TN660 Toner Cartridge, which is compatible not only with the HL series (including HL-L2300D, HL-L2305W, HL-L2320D, HL-L2340DW, HL-L2360DW, HL-L2380DW), but also covering the DCP series (DCP-L2520DW, DCP-L2540DW) and the MFC series (MFC-L2700DW, MFC-L2720DW and MFC-L2740DW).
So it doesn’t matter in which model you decided to invest or which device you already own, the process of buying the right toner, exchanging it and making it last longer, will almost be similar, and in this article we’re going to guide you through the process.
If possible, always go with the genuine high yield Brother TN660 toner cartridge
When it comes to the TN series of Brother Toner Cartridges, in most cases you can opt for the High Yield option, which offers you more ink, and in return up to 2600 pages. Now, this number can change from user to user, because it depends on the workflow of each individual, but overall you should expect more then 2000 prints.
That way you can be assured that you will have enough ink for the completion of your print jobs. The most reliable place to buy the genuine Brother TN660 Toner is directly from the Brother Amazon store or from one of the well known chain stores (Best Buy or Walmart), where you can expect to pay 50 dollars for one unit, which is basically all you need.
And although the exchange process is quite simple (you need to open the front toner door, take out the toner and drum assembly, exchange it and push it back until you hear a click), you can also call the support without any hassle, and let them guide you through the process in case it’s your first time and you want to make it right. The only suggestion which we have for you at this point is to be careful with the old toner package, it can leak, and the smartest thing you can do is to be vary of it.
How To Make My Brother TN-660 Toner Last Longer
The first recommendation which we have is that you always have a spare TN660 Toner Cartridge available in case you run out of ink and an important print job is pending, the second one is to turn on the “continue printing mode”, so that you override the toner settings built within the printer, which in return let’s you use every last bit of your (almost) empty toner, so that you can safely finish up your project.
To turn the Continue Printing Mode with the HL-L2300D and L2320D models, you need to turn on the machine with the dedicated power button, wait for the Ready LED to turn solid, after that press [GO] seven times rapidly. All the LED’s on the device will start blinking and, there you go.
The HL-L2305W, L2315DW, L2340DW and L2360DW have simplified the process, you just need to go to the General Setup on the device, press OK, go to the “Replace Toner” field, click again on OK, and there you will see the “Continue” option, press it and you’re ready to go. And that’s it, have fun with your Brother device!
