Remanufacturing Guide: Brother Hl L8350 Series Toner Cartridges

The Brother HL-L8350 printer engine is based on a new 32 ppm black and color, 2400 x 600 DPI color LED engine. The machines come standard with 128Mb expandable to 384Mb of memory, and all run off a 400 MHz processor. All models come standard with duplex built in and some have wireless interfaces. With print speeds of up to 32ppm and street pricing starting at $349.00, these machines have become very popular.

The toner cartridges do not have a reset chip on them, but do have a reset gear that must be positioned properly for the machine to accept it as a new cartridge. The proper reset position of the gear will be covered later in this instruction. The gears themselves can be a bit confusing as there are different configurations worldwide. Basically it comes down to this. For STD yield cartridges (1.5 or 2.5K) color or black use a White reset gear. For High Yield cartridges (3.5 or 4k) color or black use a Gray reset gear. Extra High Yield cartridges (6k) color or black use a Black reset gear. All three gears are slightly different. Starter cartridges do not come with a reset gear. Any starter cartridge can be converted to a STD, HY or EHY cartridge. In different areas of the world different yields are available so there is not a separate color reset gear nor a separate black reset gear. Below is a chart of which cartridges are used in what location, the part numbers and yield. The gear that should be used for each is indicated by the yield.

EHY = TN339 BK/C/M/Y (6,000 pages) (HL-L9200 only)

European Region (UK
SY = TN321 BK (2,500 pages)
SY = TN321 C/M/Y (1,500pages)
