I don't know where the release button is I've tried to move it but no luck
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I don't see how you could remote to my device and fix it.. its inside my printer?
Technician: technicalcat, Consultant replied 6 months ago

Your toner release is in the center, like most Brothers. I have one like this at home. Here is a video where you can see the release being squeezed. It pulls in/out like a tray, and the release paddle is in the center of the cartridge.

Please let me know if this answers your question and you are satisfied, or if you need further assistance or information from me. Thank You.

One correction. You have a tray to remove (with the center release), and then you have a green lever on the side to get the toner our of the carriage it is in. You'll do that once you get the carriage/cassette out of the printer as shown in video.

Let me know if you get it out. thanks.
