Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

I have 'reused' the same drum three times and still prints like a charm.
Open the toner door and pull out the toner/drum assembly. Take the toner off the drum tray. Use a alcohol pad or lint free cloth and wipe the mauve coloured drum to remove the excess lint and toner collected on the drum. Rotate the drum with the white gear and keep cleaning until the whole drum is done.
Put the toner back in the drum tray. Clean the corona wire by sliding the blue tab back and forth 3 or 4 times. Put the toner/drum back into the printer and close the door.
After the printer does the self test the drum light will cone on again so then you need to reset the counters.
Open the door again
Hold the GO button until all 4 lights are lit up
Release the GO button
Close the door
Printer will self test and should extinguish all the trouble lights.
