The TN650 is a black toner cartridge with an impressive yield of around 8,000 pages, based on 5% page coverage. It weighs around 2.4 pounds, and measures 14.3 by 7.8 inches, making it fairly easy to install.
Start by unpacking your new TN650 cartridge and removing it from the box and packing materials. Rock the cartridge back and forth to help distribute the toner inside more evenly. You can then pry the plastic cover from one side and remove it.
Press the button at the center of the printer to release the access panel and pull it downward. You can now grab the drum and cartridge assembly and remove it.
Lay down some paper to protect against spills and set the assembly on it. Press a small lever on the side to release the cartridge from the assembly, then lift it up and out. Insert the new TN650 toner cartridge into the assembly with the front downward, then lock it into place.
Turn the entire assembly around and clean the corona wire by sliding the small tab across the surface a few times. Make sure to lock it back into its starting position when you are finished.
Slide the entire TN650 cartridge and drum assembly into the printer, pressing firmly to make sure it is fully inserted, then close the access panel.
The Brother TN650 toner cartridge is compatible with a large number of Brother models, including personal laser copiers in the DCP-8050 series, compact printers in the HL-5340 through HL-5380 series, and multifunction models in the MFC-8370 through MFC-8890 series.

Difference between Compatible, Remanufactured, and OEM Products
OEM (brand name) cartridges are provided by the manufacturer of the printer, such as HP, Dell or Brother. Pricing for brand name cartridges is frequently much higher than for non-brand cartridges, typically ranging from 2–5 times higher.
Compatible cartridges are made from brand new components, provided by a non-OEM manufacturer.
Remanufactured cartridges are refurbished OEM cartridges that have been inspected, repaired, cleaned and refilled. These cartridges may also have new replacement components added in order to ensure the quality of the product, and they are provided by a non-OEM manufacturer.
Compatible and remanufactured cartridges both have color and page yield comparable to the brand name product at typically much lower cost, and are backed by our 6-month quality guarantee and 1 year defect warranty.
