Brother TN450/TN420 vs DR420, what is the difference?

Brother TN450 and DR420

For Brother printers, toner cartridges and drum units need to work together to print and are purchased separately, which easily lead to you purchase the wrong model. In this article, taking the TN450 and DR420 as examples, I will show you the difference between the toner cartridges and drum units.

An Overview of Brother Toner Cartridges and Drum Units

Toner cartridges

The toner cartridge contains powder for printing text and images, and powder (toner) volume determines the yield of the cartridge, so the toner can be offered in a different yield cartridge size. Brother TN450 is the high-yield version of TN420, and the difference between them is that TN450 can print more pages.

Drum units

The drum is a shelf that holds the cartridge and then prints clear and vivid text and images by fixing the toner of the cartridge to paper. A drum unit lasts longer than a toner cartridge. The cartridge is replaced first, and the drum usually needs to be replaced after 3-5 cartridges are used up.

(Toner + Drum) Compo Pack

A toner cartridge is combined with a drum unit as a unit in your printer, so there are specific Brother Toners that are designed to fit into specific Brother Drums such as, TN450 with DR420, TN760 with DR730, and TN750 with DR720. They cannot be mixed, otherwise the size does not match and cannot be printed.

Brother tn450 cartridge and dr420 drum

What is the difference between DR420 and TN450/TN420?

DR420 is a drum unit but TN450 and TN420 are toner cartridges. Brother DR420 like a shelf to support tn450 or tn420 cartridge, and Brother TN450 and TN420 contains toner to create printouts. We know that TN450 cartridges can print more than TN420 cartridges, but DR420 drum units have higher page yields.

You can see that DR420 drum has longer service time than TN420 and TN450 toner cartridges because the page yield of the DR420 is almost 5 times of the TN450 and 10 times of the TN420.

But you will find that the original cartridge and the drum are expensive to be replaced. At this time, you can consider v4ink compatible TN450 cartridge and DR420 drum unit. They have same print yield but cost a lot less, so that v4ink doesn’t need to sell standard yield TN420 toner. V4ink products are precisely designed to deliver clear and crisp printing result to satisfy your every need for an amazing range of colors experience.

What is the difference between TN420 and TN450?

Page Yield

The only difference between TN420 and TN450 is the number of pages printed. Brother TN-420 is a standard-yield toner cartridge and prints approximately 1,200 pages, while TN-450 is a high-yield toner cartridge and can print up to 2600 pages. Because TN420 toner contains less powder, TN420 toner cartridge is less expensive than TN450 cartridge.

 Page YieldOriginal Price
Brother TN420 toner1200 pages$39.98
Brother TN450 toner2600 pages$58.49

Cost Per Page

From the Brother Price, TN420 cartridge is cheaper than TN450 cartridge. But their printable pages are not the same, so not the most accurate price comparison. Therefore, we calculate their cost per page uniformly and find which one is cheaper.

Brother TN420 standard yield toner cartridge:

$39.98/1200 pages = 3.3 cents

Brother TN450 high yield toner cartridge:

$58.49/2600 pages = 2.2 cents

From the results, the cost per page of TN450 high-yield cartridge is lower than TN420 standard-yield cartridge. If you print infrequently, you can save money with TN420 toner, but if you print frequently, we recommend TN450 toner as it has a better long term.

Ways to Save More on TN450 Toner Cartridges

If you are looking to save more on printing costs than Brother TN450 cartridges, we strongly recommend purchasing the v4ink TN450 Compatible High Yield Black Toner Cartridge.

How to fix “No Toner” Error on Brother Printers

What should we do when your Brother printer gives an error prompt of “No Toner”? Many people will think that my toner cartridge is damaged or has quality issues. Is it always like this? A few simple steps can help you quickly check whether it is caused by the quality problem of the toner cartridge or due to improper installation or other reasons. In addition, you can quickly restore the normal operation of your toner cartridge through the following simple operations. Let’s jump in!

What causesNo Toner error display?

There are 4 major reasons for the “No Toner” error display.

1) Caused by printer structure.

no toner cause by the structure

When the printer is running and printing, the toner cartridge driven by the supply roller will lead to the separation of the chip and the printer probe, which causes “No Toner”.

2) The model of the toner cartridge chip does not match cause “No Toner”. 

3) The chip on the toner cartridge has stains, dust or other foreign matters that prevent the chip from normal contact with the printer causing “No Toner”. 

4) The print probe in the printer is deformed, damaged and unable to contact the chip. 

As long as we know the causes of mistakes, we can solve them easily and get your printer return to normal.

Solution 1. Make the chip of the toner cartridge restore normal contact with the printer probe.

Step 1 > Open the cover of the printer, then close the cover, waiting for the printer stop running. Then re-check if the printer has become normal.

Step 2 > Open the cover of the printer, take out the toner cartridges, then re-install the toner cartridges into the printer. Close the printer cover and re-check if it becomes normal.

Step 3 > Turn off the power of the printer and wait for 3-4 seconds. Then turn on the printer and see if the printer becomes normally used.

Solution 2. Double check if the toner cartridge comes with the correct chip and observe whether there are stains, dust, glue or other foreign matters on the chip surface.

Step 1 > Open the cover of the printer, and check whether the chip model is consistent with the printer model.

Step 2 > Take out the toner cartridge from the printer, and observe whether there are stains, dust, glue or other foreign matters on the chip surface.

Step 3 > If there are foreign matters, please use industrial alcohol and non-woven fabric to erase it gently. If it cannot be erased, you need to replace a new chip.

Step 4 > Close the printer cover to see if the printer becomes normally used.

Solution 3. Observe whether the print probe is deformed or damaged.

Step 1 > Open the cover of the printer and take out the toner cartridges, a water-based pen to coat the chip contacts.

Step 2 > Close the printer cover and waiting the machine to run about 4-5 seconds, observe whether the chip contacts with coating have clear scratches.

Step 3 > If there is no clear scratch on the chip contacts, it indicates that the chip has poor contact with the printer probe, and the printer probe may be damaged or deformed.

Step 4 > Replace a new printer probe (You can replace it yourself or contact the after-sales maintenance of the machine to replace it). After replacing the printer probe, observe whether the printer becomes normally used.

If the above methods still cannot eliminate the error message of “No Toner” for your Brother printer, there may be a quality problem with the toner cartridge itself. It is recommended to contact the merchant for a replacement or refund.

Difference between Brother TN760 and DR730

Many guests will encounter various troubles when purchasing consumables for their printers, especially when you are a user of a printer with drum and toner separation structure, you will often encounter the situation of buying wrong products, such as wanting a toner cartridge but buying a drum unit.

Let’s learn some basic knowledge first:

What is toner cartridge?

Toner cartridges contain a finite amount of toner powder, so they can only print a limited amount of pages. You need to replace the toner cartridge when the toner is running short or print quality becomes poor because of toner deterioration. TN730 / TN760 toner cartridge usually use together with DR730 Drum Unit

The following video shows you what is TN760 toner cartridge

What is drum unit?

Drum unit is just a shelf and does not contain toner powder, therefore, you need to add the toner cartridge into the drum unit before you use it.

The drum unit has longer service life than the toner cartridge. It usually only needs to be replaced after about 3-5 toner cartridges have been replaced. Some drum units can last a little longer. The laser printer puts the toner on the roller called “The photosensitive drum” inside the drum unit, and then prints letters and images by fixing toner to the paper by heat and pressure.

What is Toner and Drum Combo Pack?

Before putting it into the printer, you need to install the TN760 toner cartridge into the DR730 drum unit, then you can print normally.

It is worth noting that different toner cartridges match unique drum units. For example, the TN660 toner corresponds to DR630 drum, while the TN760 toner corresponds to DR730 drum. They cannot be mixed, otherwise they will not be installed correctly.

V4ink provides you with TN760 toner cartridge and DR730 drum unit combo pack, which reduces the possibility of customers buying the wrong model.

Brother TN730, TN760 and DR730, their names are very similar. How should we distinguish them? What’s the difference between them? How can you avoid buying the wrong item? You can find their differences from the following aspects:

Appearance

The most difference of the TN730/TN760 and DR730 is their appearance. The DR730 drum unit looks like an empty shelf, because it does not contain toner powder, so its middle is hollow. Its main function is to support the toner cartridge. TN730 and TN760 toner cartridges are looks like, their only difference is the toner powder they contain.

You will easily find that the page yield of the DR730 drum unit is almost 4 times of the TN760 and 10 times of the TN730, which means the DR730 drum unit has longer service life and more printed pages, which usually need to be replaced after use together with several toner cartridges.

As the difference of the page yield, their price and cost per page are also different. If you print more, TN760 Toner Cartridge will be more affordable.

The Signal to be replaced

When the toner cartridge and drum unit need to be replaced, the printer will give different prompts. Purchase the corresponding products according to the prompts, will not make mistake. 

When do the TN730/TN60/DR730 need to replace?

If the printer prompts “toner low”, “replace toner” or the prints you are getting are faded, you will need to replace the TN730 / TN760 toner cartridge.

If the printer prompts “replace drum”, “drum end soon” or the prints you are getting blank spaces or streaks, you will need to replace the DR730 drum unit.

In addition, you can also check the usage of toner cartridges and drum units by printing a self-test page. The printer will also prompt you to replace the toner cartridge or drum unit when it is exhausted.

What is The Best Black-and-White Printer?

best black and white printers with v4ink cartridges

Although color printers can provide us with more choices of printing effects, black-and-white printers are more commonly used for office because of their lower cost and faster printing speed.

What is a black-and-white printer?

Black and white printer is also called monochrome printer. It only uses black ink or black toner. It is generally considered more cost-effective than color printers. Black and white printers are usually used in professional environments because they have faster printing speed, lower printing cost per page, and excellent text quality in the case of monochrome laser printers.

For the heavy daily printing demand, black and white printer is a more reasonable choice, because it can print quickly and output a large amount, while maintaining a fairly low operating cost. It may not be as versatile as a color printer, but it is still the preferred printer for commercial purposes because color is not always necessary in most professional environments.


Black and white printer vs color printer

As we all know, there are two main types of printers, laser printer and inkjet printer. You can also get more detail for this two types of printer: Laser vs. Inkjet Printer.

Laser printers are divided into black-and-white laser printers and color laser printers. As the name suggests, black-and-white laser printers can only print black-and-white documents, while color laser printers can print color pictures and text, but the price of color laser printers is relatively high.

All of the Inkjet printers can print color. Its biggest advantage is that it can print color images finely. But the disadvantage is the high cost.


What users are more suitable for choosing black-and-white printers?

Users who consider cheaper operating costs:

Black and white printers cost less to own and operate because they require only one color of toner or ink to print. Color printers often require multiple ink cartridges / toner cartridges (four or more colors) to print at the same time.

Users who do not want to spend more maintenance costs and time:

Inkjet printers require more maintenance costs than black and white laser printers because their nozzles are easily blocked. You need to clean them regularly, otherwise you need to spend more money on maintenance.

Users who with large printing volume and certain requirements for printing speed:

If you want to print a large number of business documents, please consider using a clear and fast black-and-white laser printer. The clear text and fast output of black-and-white laser printer make it an ideal choice for high-capacity document printing with priority on readability.

Users who mainly print in black and white:

Color laser printers are usually more expensive than monochrome laser printers, inkjet printers are even more expensive, and the price of ink cartridges is much more expensive than the toner cartridges used by laser printers. If you mainly print black and white word documents and spreadsheets, it is worth considering using a black-and-white printer because it can save you more.

How to extend the life of TN-760 toner?

The use of printer cartridges is indeed a huge cost for users. Long term use is even more expensive than buying a new printer.

Learning the following operations can make you use your toner cartridge more fully. Let’s go on:

Shake the Toner Cartridge Side to Side

Brother TN-760 uses powdered toner. Over time, the powdered toner in the cartridge will agglomerate and unevenly distributed, resulting in toner waste. To extend the life of the toner cartridge, you need to remove the toner cartridge from the printer regularly, shake it to redistribute the toner, and then reinstall it.

Turn on Toner Saving Mode

To do this go to your Brother print settings, Depending on the laser printer model you can, change print mode to: Draft mode, Fast mode or Toner-saver mode, all use less ink by reducing the DPI (dots per inch). Utilize one of these modes when content matters more than print quality; they’re often perfectly acceptable for working with intra-office documents.

Purchase high yield toner cartridges

Compared with the standard cartridge, the high print volume cartridge contains more toner and can print more pages. They use a large toner bin and double the amount of printing. In addition, the cost per page of high yield cartridge is less than the standard yield. In other words, high yield cartridge will save you more money.

Storage of the toner cartridges

Temperature and humidity have an impact on the service life of the toner cartridge. If the temperature is too high or too low, it will affect the service life of the cartridge. If the storage space is too wet, it will also make the powdered toner agglomerate. Place the toner cartridge upright in a cool and dry indoor place. Seal the cartridges in their original packaging until you need to use them can help to extend their lifespan.

Does the cartridge of Brother HL-L2350DW need to replace the chip?

Brother TN-760 Toner Cartridge come with chip or without chip?

Many people use Brother printers. Do you know whether the toner cartridge of your printer come with chip?

Many people don’t pay attention to whether the toner cartridge contains chips. Some of them don’t realize that their toner cartridge needs chips until their printer can’t recognize the new toner cartridge. Did you know that the toner cartridge of Brother HL-L2350DW printer needs a chip?


What’s the toner chip?

Brother TN-760 Toner Chip

Have you noticed that you receive a warning every time you run out of toner or ink? Now many printer cartridges come with smart chips. A smart chip is like a small circuit board, which located at a specific position of the toner cartridge and is consistent with the position of the identification chip in the printer.


What is the toner chip used for?

1. They contain cartridge specific information, such as model and print volume. (therefore, the printer can recognize that the correct cartridge is installed).

2. They are mainly used to store information, including recording your print usage and ensuring the capacity of toner.


How does the toner chip work?

The toner chip is used to monitor and count the amount of the droplets during printing. Chips are programmed for specific toner designs and once a certain number of droplets are used, the chip will provide a warning and stop printing.


Does the Brother HLL2350DW printer cartridge come with chip?

The answer is yes! The Brother toner TN-760 which compatible for HL-L2350dw printer come with chip. In addition, it is compatible with the following brother printers: HL-L2370DW, HL-L2370DW XL, HL-L2350DW, HL-L2390DW, HL-L2395DW, MFC-L2750DW, MFC-L2750DW XL, MFC-L2710DW, MFC-L2730DW, DCP-L2550DW.

But some times, Brother TN-760 did not come with chip. For example, v4ink launched the no chip version of TN-760 toner as early as 2018.

What does the no chip mean? No chip means that you need to replace the chips from the original OEM (genuine) Brother TN-760 toner cartridges to the new compatible toner cartridges.

During the production of TN-760, some compatible manufacturers found that the chips removed from the original toner cartridge can be used normally when placed on the new compatible toner cartridge. This kind of no chip toner cartridge version of the product reduces the cost of chip research and development, the price is much lower than the original, and is more loved by consumers.

The only disadvantage of this no chip cartridge is that the chip needs to be removed from the original equipment and installed into the new cartridge.

How to replace the chip of Brother TN-760 high yield toner cartridge?

You can also follow the steps listed below:

Step 1 – Turn the printer off first

Step 2 – Open the printer cover and take off the old toner with the drum together;

Step 3 – Take out the toner cartridge from the drum unit;

Step 4 – Take off the chip from the OEM toner cartridge with screw-driver;

Step 5 – Install the chip into the new toner cartridge;


Does the chip need to be reset after replacement?

You may need to reset the toner chip depending on your printer model. Some toner chips can be used normally without reset after replacement, but some printers may record the old data of the chip and promote the error message, such as “toner cartridge is empty” or “toner low” resulting in failure to use normally or recording the amount of the droplets normally.


How can I make my printer recognize my new toner cartridge?

If your toner cartridge is not recognized by the printer after reinstallation, please calm down. The following methods may help you:

Step 1 – When you remove the old cartridge, allow roughly 10 minutes before installing the new one.

Step 2 – Try replacing the old cartridge with the new one and see if the printer will recognize the cartridge.

Step 3 – If that doesn’t work, remove the new cartridge and place it in a safe place and surface so there won’t be further damage.

Step 4 – Turn off the power and unplug the printer from the outlet and let it sit for 10 or so minutes.

Step 5 – Plug it back in and re-insert the cartridge.

Step 6 – Turn the power back on and this should work and your new cartridge should work!

If that didn’t work, you can try the following steps:

Clean the smart chip of the toner cartridge – this piece of metal can often times get dirty and would require a cleaning.

Step 1 – Power down and unplug the printer. Carefully remove the cartridge and place it in a safe place. Inspect the cartridge and the inside of the printer for any metal contacts. You should also check the inside of the printer for the connection point.

Step 2 – Softly, with a dry cloth, wipe the contacts on the cartridge and printer in order to remove any dirt or residue that has built up over the years. Replace the cartridge, power back on and try again to print.


The emergence of “new chip” or “second generation chip”

With the emergence of more and more compatible toner cartridges, the status of original toner cartridges has been shaken, and they have to take measures, one of which is to improve their chips or upgrade the firmware of the equipment.

OEM (original equipment manufacturers) upgrades its chips or printer firmware from time to time, so that the old chips cannot run on newer printers. This is why for some ink or toner models, you will see new chip versions or second-generation versions. The main purpose is to let printers only recognize OEM toner cartridges, so as to monopolize the whole market.

With the progress of technology, v4ink has been able to independently develop its own smart chip, which is compatible with original printer and adapt to the latest firmware of the equipment.

All TN-760 toner models currently on sale in v4ink come with chips, which are more convenient and affordable. The cumbersome steps of replacing the chip are abandoned, and the installation method is as simple as the original. It can provide the same printing effect and number of pages as the original product, and the price is only 20% of the original one.
