Just installed a new drum unit in my Brother DCP1000, and it's still reading "Replace Drum soon"


heya!
this stands for brother mfc-8440 as in the title.
you need to reset the "drum counter" of your printer..
to do so try one of those

Brother Laser Printers:

After replacing the drum unit, keep the front cover open (make sure the power is on). Press and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Once the four LED's light up, close the front cover. Make sure the drum LED is off. The counter is reset!

Brother Fax Machines:

Open the front cover. Press the CLEAR/BACK button. Press 1, when the display shows accepted.

How do I clean the drum on the Brother MFC-8440


It should be constantly cleaned by it's cleaning blade with every revolution. If that's not making continuous contact inside the drum unit, then it's time to replace the drum. The symptom to look for is not just a gray background, but images that repeat about 3 inches down the page as the drum rolls around to that point again.
If the background is gray without noticeable repeating image, it may be a defective toner cartridge. We've wasted a fair amount of money replacing Brother drums when it turned out to be the much cheaper toner cartridge. If it's a new cartridge, take it back to the store along with before and after print samples.

I have a Brother MFC 8440..the paper has vertical black lines


Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

I have a brother MFC 8440


Have you checked the back paper door?, the paper tray?, and the drum/toner unit? If a paper was torn out of the machine, you may not be able to see the piece that is still triggering the jam signal. You can also pull down the paper guide around the orange fuser roller through the back door by pulling it gently to the left.

Pls Clean Drum


The drum is the larger plastic unit that slides out an the toner cartridge fits into it. The corona wire is the very fine wire at the front top of the drum. Just slide the little cleaning tab back and forth.
