May have damaged drum

I may have inadvertently damaged the drum on our brand new Canon. This is because the person who installed it kept the Basic Operation Guide at home, so I could not consult the book on a paper jam problem. Two "experts" have agreed that the drum is damaged. Is there anything I can do besides replace the drum?

Get the most from Brother Drums and Toner - Stop Early Failures


Brother laser printers, fax machines and multifunctions all use a toner reclaim system. That means the used or left over toner (along with paper dust and debri) is recycled into the new toner cartridge supply. There is no waste section for the leftover toner and debri. This design is efficient however their are some short falls that you need to address. The toner cartridge supply is slowly contaminated with debri and dust that will send the cartridge down prematurely if your not using a good quality paper.

In addition, Brother Drum Units (ie DR-400, DR-500, DR-510, etc...) are expensive and suffer from the same premature failure problems. There is a charging brush and transfer roller inside the front top inside of the drum that drags on the drum surface to charge and discharge it properly for toner transfer. If you use poor quality the built up paper dust and debri interferes with this system and ultimately prevents it from working prperly. Here's a photo of a newer drum that failed due to the use of poor paper. Note the paper dust embedded in the transfer roller (top), caught up in the charge brush (center) and actually laying on the drum (bottom).

Here's a closeup of the charge brush so you can see the problem better below.

Below is the damage that bad paper caused. This DR-520 drum pictured is rated for 25,000 pages but due to low quality paper lasted just over 7,000. This was caused by a "Store Brand" paper.

Here below is a photo of the inside of a brother toner cartridge contaminated with paper dust and debri due to la ow quality super store brand paper. Note all the white paper dust in the toner.

To get the full yield from your Brother supplies, simply use GOOD QUALITY PAPER. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRAND PAPERS as they go out on low price bid rather than to meet a tight quality standard. I would recommend a HP Brand paper as it's an "ALWAYS KNOWN GOOD" paper. The cheapest on the HP branded papers is HP Office and it works well.

Hope this has helped you understand the importance of using good quality paper in your brother machines. If you found this helpful, please rate it with a FIXYA as significant time and effort was used to help you.

Thanks and Happy Printing

How can I reset the copier canon NP 6412 shows the message CC on display?


CC means you will have to replaced your drum unit. The part number is F43-5411-700. About $150.00
There is a chip in the unit that records the number of copies run. You will either have to have the drum unit rebuilt and a new chip installed or just order in a new drum unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What does it mean to change the drum soon?


The Canon B640 uses an ink cartridge/printhead assembly. There is no Drum just the BX-3 bubblejet ink. Could it be possible that you have the model number wrong?

If so, note the proper model number and purchase a new Drum from a reputable local office equipment dealer. The directions enclosed with the drum should help you with installation of it. It's a good idea to have your local dealer clean the machine at least once a year. If you buy the drum from them while it's in for service, they could install it for you.

good luck

New cartiage/not reconized


It says there is no cartridge, or does it say that the cartridge is empty?

First, you must realize there are two cartridges. A drum and a toner. If you bought a new toner, pulled out the drum and put the new toner in, you have pulled a DOH! You can't just put the toner in. You have to take your old drum cartridge, remove the toner portion and install the new toner into your old drum and then install the entire assembly back into the machine. I hope you didn't throw your drum out thinking it was all one cartridge (I've seen it happen). This is where reading the owner's manual helps.

If not, then one of the contacts must have been damaged. Remove the cartridge and look inside the machine. See if you can find any of the metal contacts on the side of the inner chamber that is bent or damaged and try to bend it back.

Check the drum and make sure none of the contacts are damaged.

If the unit is still saying Toner Empty, try this. On the left side of the toner there will be a while lever in a semi-circular notch.

Unplug the unit, use a small screwdriver or a key to push that white lever back to the front of the notch. Put the drum and toner back into the machine and plug the power back in.

No printing


A common reason for background shading is a low toner. Install a new genuine brother toner. If you have already loaded a generic toner in the drum unit, it is too late. You have damaged the drum asm. You can still buy a new 2800 with new supplies for just a little more than a new drum asm. Did you have the grey baqckground before you worked on it?
