There is an interlock switch or sensor on all the covers. You need to open the cover and look for an opening in the cover it closes against. In those openings there are normally switches that a tab turns on to let the machine know the cover is closed.
The switch may have become dislodged, or more likely, the tab on the cover that hits the switch to actuate it has broken off and is not hitting the switch giving you that message.

It says drum error but the cart and drum is replaced with new and still can't get past the drum error message.


Hi There!
What you can do to clear the Drum Error message is to clean the corona wire.
  • Open front cover of the machine and remove the drum & toner cartridge assembly.
  • Remove the toner from the drum and gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side put it on a piece of paper to avoid scattering the toner.
  • Theres a blue tab on the upper left side of the drum, slide it from left to right, right to left about 5-6 times don't forget to put the blue tab back to it's home position(where the arrow is).
  • Put the toner back into the drum make sure it will click into place.
  • Reinstall the drum and toner assembly back into the machine and close the front cover.
  • LCD should display the date & time.

If you continue to receive the message try resetting the drum counter by doing the following:
  • Open the front cover
  • Press the Options key on the control panel. The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".
  • Press 1 to reset the drum count.
  • Close the front cover
Hope this helps!

Where is the top cover switch? I can't find it.


Hello,

This is the manufacter's official manual link:
http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_IntelliFax_750_770_EN_85.PDF

On page 63 it shows you how to open the top cover. You must open the front cover first then open the top cover by pressing the blue levers on both sides of the top cover.

It also has a diagram.

Hope this helps!

If you open the cover,the same cover you open to replace the toner.There is a guide that can swing up and down.This sensor is situated in this guide.Swing this giude to the down possition and you will see the arm that actuate the sensor.Make sure this arm is in the correct possition and can swing up and backwards.Some time this arm get stucked against the body of the fax.It normally hapened when the upper cover of the fax was removed.
I believe you can fix this one, it is a relative easy fault
