Q. It has just been two months since I bought the Brother MFC 8870DW toner cartridges and my printer is already showing the message 'toner low'. Considering my print requirements the cartridges last for more than 3 months. So should I believe there is something wrong with the cartridge?
A. The cartridge seems to have no problem as such. This is a very common situation encountered by the users. Please see that, in general, a page yield of a toner cartridge depends on the type of document printed. And, the maximum page yield is always estimated considering the standard 5% coverage. If you have been performing print jobs with graphics, charts or any large amount of solid black text covering the page, it will use much more toner than usual. For example, if a toner cartridge has a yield of 3000 pages at 5% coverage, it would come down down to 1500 pages if you are using the toner at 10% coverage. A document printed with about 3,000 characters will have 10% coverage. In your case, if the Brother MFC 8870DW toner cartridge is used for a print job that requires more than 1500 characters (5% coverage) than the toner will be used up much before than expected. Hope this answers your question.
