Canon ImageRUNNER 300S - Replace Drum

I am trying to find simple, easy to follow instructions on how to replace the drum on our office copier. Installation is going to cost way too much and we feel like we can do it between the 6 of us!

Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions?

All you have to do is have a phillips screwdriver and remove the screw that secures the drum to the copier. Before removing the screw you need to release the developer unit out of the way. Just perform the same procedure as if you were going to put new toner into the copier but you don't have to pull out the developer unit. Then just to left is the drum unit and at the top of it should be a black screw. It will be about an inch long. Then just pull out the drum and put in the new one after removing all the packing material. Be sure to not touch the round cylinder of the drum unit, that is the drum. Also, you may want to practice put in the old drum several times before putting in the new drum until you're sure you can put in the new one without damaging it. There is another thing that should be done but that is a technician thing and is probalbly beyound what you am7y want to deal with. It doesn't really ahve to be done but a tech should do if he replaces the drum for you. It most likely would not affect copy quality and will not hurt the drum if not done. Good Luck and be careful.

Our small office purchased a Canon Imagerunner 2000/1600 copier 4 years ago. Since our last service call, when the drum was changed and the machine was cleaned, we then ran less than 2000 copies. The...

When your drum was replaced did they put in a new drum assy or just replace the drum cylinder? I would purchase a new drum because these are one of the chepest to buy, around $ 80.00. They have a 6 month warranty and around 20,000 copies. I would replace the drum to see if that solves the problem. Before doing that, pull off the left side bypass assy. It is easily removed without tools. You should be able to see the drum and see if the drum is clean. If not, then replace the drum unit assy. Are you using only Canon toner, no other kind of brand will work. Generics should work but they are usually not as good a quality. The volume is very low and that should not be an issue. I believe its suppossed to handle 10,000 copies per month. Cleaning the glass top and below may help. The mirrors should also be cleaned as well. Good luck.

Double images showing up on imagerunner c6800 when using color copies only

unfortunaly to tell you the only real way to have this problem fixed is to replace the drum and the drum blade.... though it might be possible to clean the drum depending on how bad the drum has gotten

Copier ha a message that says replace toner drum.


It means that the internal drum unit is full of waste toner and that the drum is worn out too. The people at cannon made the drum unit to last when the waste toner internal compartment is full.

When you buy a new drum the instructions are in the box and very easy to install.

hope it helps
