    The belt unit was damaged at 42% used. It was replaced. I don’t see the reset option in the menu. How do I reset the count in this case?

      Hi Dar

      There is a note attached to the guide that states that “Only the parts counters that need to be reset appear in the menu.” I assume that means that if the life isnt reached you can use that guide to reset that count.
      I suggest that you ring you brother service team and they may have another reset for your case.
