How do I reset my brother tn450 after putting in new toner cartridge? Answered

I have been reading all of the blogs, and do not know how to reset the printer to remove the toner end message. I just bought a compatable toner and the machine will not recognize it.

There is a reset gear on the cartridge, or more accurately there is probably a spot for a reset gear on it. If you're moving from the starter cartridge you might have to move the gear from that one onto the new one. Its the gear post furthest towords the back/handle of the cartridge.
