Frequently Asked Questions


When is a high yield toner cartridge a better option for my Brother HL-5440D?

When most of your print jobs are high in volume and consisting mostly of graphics, bold texts, charts, and images, getting a high yield toner cartridge makes the smarter choice. A high yield cartridge contains more toner, so it can print more pages, including those that consist of more than simple text.


Do I have to order a new toner cartridge once the 'Toner Low' warning appears on the LCD?

Yes. We highly recommend that you keep a new toner cartridge ready when the 'Toner Low' warning appears because it won't be long until the toner cartridge gets totally depleted.


How can I maximize the remaining toner in the cartridge?

To maximize the remaining toner in the cartridge, simply remove the cartridge from the printer and shake it several times to redistribute the remaining toner inside the cartridge. This will allow you to print a few more pages and temporarily improve the print quality.
