Toner Reset Instructions For DCP1610W and DCP1510

When a new TN1070 toner is installed in a DCP1610W rand DCP1510  printer, a reset gear should turn and trigger a switch to reset the toner counter.

Sometimes the toner counter doesn’t get reset and realigning the reset gear is a little bit too techy for most users. Here’s how to reset the toner cartridge on the printer controls:

  1. Press the Menu-button
  2. Use the arrows to browse to “Machine Info”, press the OK-button
  3. Use the Arrow-buttons to browse to:
    Machine Info
    Reset Drum
  4. Press and hold the OK-button until the display shows:
    Reset Drum
    ^Reset v Exit
  1. Press in succession the Start-button, Up-button, Down-button, OK-button
  2. The display should say “Accepted”. If step 5 failed, you may have been too slow
  3. Press the Stop-button to exit the menu

If you get the message “Printer is busy”, then switch the printer off and on

    Hi, can I reset my starter cartilage according to these instructions after refilling with new toner powder. I do not have reset gear in my starter cartilage. So basically after refilling the powder , I want to rest tonnerer by this method. Can I do that without reset gear??

    This didn’t work for me. I have a dcp 1610w. I tried many times without success.
    The instructions work till I get to accept, I press stop but display reverts to replace toner, again!!!

    I have abandoned the printer for over 8 months before I came across this solution.
    Infact, it started working immediately.

    Thanks so much

    The only change I had to make was in step 7. I could not get it to go to 10. It stayed at 0, but the other steps worked and I could still reset my toner. This was the first time I shook this toner after it said to replace the toner. The next copy was normal–not light as if the toner was going out. Thank you for your help!
