How do I reset drum error message


These machines need to have their drum units replaced every 12000 pages. If you have replaced it then it needs to have the machine reset. Normally the instructions are included in the box with the new drum unit but not many people read these.

  1. Open the front cover (Where you put the cartridge and drum unit in)
  2. Press the Back Button
  3. Display reads "Replace Drum 1. Yes 2. No"
  4. Press the number 1
  5. The display reads "Accepted"
  6. Close the Front Cover
If you have not replaced the drum unit and you reset the drum counter you will see a noticeable degradation of the printouts coming from the machine.

Brother 9970cdw toner


The Brother printers have a counter which will shut the printer down when the preset number of copies has been reached. You can reset the counter and it should print again. I did this 4 months ago. It bought me a little time, but my printer has begun to print a solid line down the left side of each page. I have cleaned everything that I can access to rule out smudged glass, etc. Perhaps it is just best to replace the drum or buy a new printer(much to Brother's delight and design).
