Top customer reviews
The installation or should I say the refill was very easy. This was the first time I had ever attempted to refill a toner cartridge so I read the instructions and watched a youtube video just so I didn't mess anything up but like i said it was easy.
Though it can be messy if you're not carful. Wear some latex gloves and have a workspace covered with news paper if you're worried you might make a mess. When I did it I got a little bit of toner on the outside of the cartridge but other than that it was quite uneventful in the mess department.
Honestly, why spend so much money on a new cartridge when you can refill it for just a couple bucks and minimal effort?
Emptying the cartridge:
As noted by other reviewers, emptying the rest of the original toner out of the cartridge before refilling can be a bit messy. I emptied mine into a large Ziploc bag, but the powder did get all over that end of the cartridge. After refilling and putting the plug back in, I took the cartridge outside and used a dry paint brush to get the old toner out of all the cracks and crevices on the end of the cartridge, and a pipe cleaner to get in the corners. An old toothbrush probably would have worked well also.
Filling the cartridge:
As also noted by at least one other reviewer, I found that toner poofed out of the bottle in a couple of places where the lid screws onto the bottle. I resolved this by squeezing the bottle slower and less harshly. The opening in the top is very small and I may cut it larger next time so more powder flows without squeezing the bottle, or I'll try a funnel as some others have done.
The gear and the spring:
I struggled a little with getting the spring and gear on just right. It wasn't hard to get it on, I just wasn't certain of the exact position of it as most You Tube videos kind of flew by this part and didn't show it clearly. As shown in the attached picture, the top portion (long end) of the spring has to be far enough away from the gear post on the left to allow the gear to fit snugly onto that post. The top looped portion of the long end of the spring lays over the top edge of the gear housing and not inside the gear housing cavity. If the top portion of the spring is not far enough away from that post, the gear will not go down far enough and will not fit snugly. You will know you have the gear on correctly because it will fit through the provided cover just right.
For me, this was a very economical way to go, and I will use a refill kit again next time.
I finally decided to change the toner after a year or more once the text started fading as I continued to print.
I bought this toner refill kit at the same time I bought the printer so I can't remember if it came with instructions or not. However, I found the images of the instructions on the product page here on Amazon and followed those. While there were only 2 pages that explained how to remove the cartridge from the drum, it fell short of what to do next. I then Googled an instructional video on how to do this and I found one that was easy to follow and listen! Google "Daily Motion How to refill and reset the brother Hl 2270 DW" and it should be the first video the appears in the search.
You essentially need:
- this kit (not sure if it comes with the gears and what not since I purchased this over a year ago so don't quote me on this. If not, make sure you find the one with the reset gear assembly)
- screw driver
- flat head screw driver (I don't use tools very often so excuse the incorrect names for the tools)
- plastic bag (to dump the old toner into)
Once you watch the video, it becomes very clear and easy to refill the toner as well as reset it.
Another reviewer explains in depth how he did it (Stephen Mann) so there is another source for you to look over.
Overall, this was a great product and everything is working fine!
