How to Replace Toner in Brother Printer
If you have never replaced a toner before, it could be a daunting task. However, don’t worry, as this guide will walk you through the process. You must also have some know-how about the toner cartridge and drum unit to understand the process of printing and using the Brother printer appropriately. The Toner cartridge and drum unit are two separate consumables in the brother printer. Let’s discuss the essential difference between the two first.
