Here is how to fix this - open the top of the printer, then simultaneously press the "Secure" and "X Cancel" buttons. This will put the printer into a special service mode. Use the + and - buttons to scroll to whichever toner you want to reset. Each color should have three options which, I believe, allow you to tell the machine what type of 'new' toner cartridge is installed. I think "Y.TNR-STR" is yellow cartridge standard, "Y.TNR-HC" is for the high yield yellow cartridge and "Y.TNR.STD" is for a standard yellow cartridge. Once you've selected the cartridge you want to tell it you're installing hit the "OK" button and will get an "OK reset cancel" type screen. Hit the up arrow to reset. Now you're back to printing in style!
Replace your toner cartridges need to be replaced, not when it tells you to.
UPDATE: 8/28/2016 I could not get Airprint from my iPhone to work. In searching for fixes I found that there was a firmware update for this printer. I was afraid an update might take away the ability to use the above method to correct toner levels but I am happy to report the updated firmware still lets you correct toner levels. I still can't get Airprint to work but PrintCentral Pro for the iPhone does work.
This printer is amazing. Has great color and auto duplex works like it should. If you know how to setup a router to have wifi password, setting up the wifi on the printer shouldn't that difficult. When you first plug it in, (no need to plug it into a computer or anything), it'll ask you to setup WLAN. Press ok, find your wireless network name, press ok, put in password, press ok, done. Now all the macbooks, windows, iphones, and ipads in the house can print wirelessly.
My only complaint is the starter cartridges that came with it. Like how most printer companies make their money, this printer decided to stop working because the black toner was low. I checked printer status and it shows it printed 600 pages of black! That's it for a starter cartridge?! It refuses to print unless I change the cartridge! I searched online and figured out how to reset the cartridge making it think it has a new toner inside. What you need to do is lift up the top cover and leave it unhinged. Simultaneously press the Secure and the Cancel button at the same time (with top cover open). You will see option to choose which toner you want to reset. Select the one you want, press okay and press the + to confirm reset. Done. Now you can keep using what's left in the toner cartridge which in my case had at least 50% left.
As for refills, this is going to be a tad more difficult than typical Brother cartridges. You are going to need to drill a hole a size of a dime on the top of the cartridge and then pour the ink in. Use same tape to cover up the hole you make. No need for resets gears or any of that. Just do the same procedure as above to reset it and your good to go.
All in all, I'm happy with my purchase. If you print a lot and need decent color printing (not photo quality) and want to print wirelessly, this is the printer to get.
Very sad to say but the printer bit the dust today after a little over a year of use. Printer count shows just 10,000 pages printed, but the printer started printing crinkly pages. I opened the back of the unit and the fuser (black and orange hot bars) were torn to bits. Did some research and it seems common with people who excessively print and never let the printer cool down. Was never aware of this. Just a warning for everyone!
Called Brother up, they sent out a new empty (no ink or ink tank) refurbished printer out (within 2 days) and I shipped back the broken printer. Easy peasy and Brother paid for all shipping costs. Warranty is extended extra 30 days after my ORIGINAL 1 year warranty. Although the replacement printer is refurbished, I'm satisfied with Brother's customer service.
Our small office is on three floors, so we wanted two printers -- even though each prints less than 100 pages on average, per week. We bought a Brother HL-3170CDW printer in January 2015 (10 months ago) and liked it, so we bought another in February 2015. The second printer stopped working barely a month after purchase, but only when we tried to print double-sided: the roller would crumple the paper and jam (regardless of the paper quality we used). We gave that printer to a a friend who doesn't double-side, and -- because the first printer still worked well and we had dozens of expensive new cartridges -- we purchased another Brother HL-3170CDW printer. Big mistake. A month ago (after 6 months of light use -- under 100 pages per week), the new printer began to make a grinding noise and the roller began to disintegrate. Pieces of roller came off in flakes (see photos). TWO defective printers in one year? Oh, Brother. We will not be purchasing another.
In posting this review, I noticed a review by Luke (December 8, 2014) who wrote: "Rollers are defective and disintegrate. Brother is aware of the problem but won't do anything about it." Wish I'd seen that review before buying.
