Have you recently replaced the drum and if so does the machine not recognize the new one has been installed?
If this is the case then you should follow the steps below to replace the drum:

NOTE: Once the machine has instructed you to replace one of the drums (CMYK) then there is no way around but to replace the drum specified.

  1. Remove the new Drum Cartridge from its packaging and place it on a flat surface near the machine. Do not place the Drum Cartridge upright.
  2. Make sure the machine has stopped copying or printing, and then open the machine Front Door.
  3. Lift up on the lever marked 'A' located on the left front side of the Drum Cartridge.
  4. Pull down on the release handle to unlock the Drum Cartridge lock and access the four drum cartridges.
  5. Gently remove the Drum Cartridge (A1=Black, A2=Cyan, A3=Magenta, A4=Yellow) indicated on the Touch Screen, by grasping the light orange tab on the cartridge handle and pulling it straight out.
  6. Rest the new Drum Cartridge along with its black plastic protective shield into the cartridge slot. Make sure to load the cartridge in the direction of the arrow on the top of the shield and with the bottom of the shield resting on the release handle.
  7. Remove the tape from the top of the cartridge shield by pulling it off.
  8. Hold the Drum Cartridge shield and push the cartridge into the machine using the light orange tab.
  9. Remove the shield from the machine.

    NOTE: Make sure the cartridge guide is aligned inside the guide rail, if not reseat the cartridge. See the Related Items below for additional information.

  10. Lift up the release handle in the middle to lock the Drum Cartridge
  11. Push the lever marked 'A' handle latch down until it locks.
  12. Close the Front Door. If the Front Door is not completely closed a message will be displayed and the machine will not operate.

Hi, I have a Workcenter XD102. It gives me a J2 error. I don't know how to fix it. Please help. Thank you very much, Charles

J2 error for Workcenter XD102 indicates a Drum Cartridge Problem sensed by the main PWB indicating that the Drum cartridge had reached its end of life. You may replace the Drum cartridge with a brand new Drum Cartridge. This should fix the problem.
If you believe that its not the Drum cartridge with or without replacing the Drum cartridge, you may try to open the printer, make a good clean and perform the below. 1. Check the PWB and Drum Cartridge Reset Circuit for any loose connection and short circuit. You may re-seat the cables and terminations and test. 2. If that didn't work you might need to get some voltage from the Drum Cartridge Reset Circuit as per below. 2a. If voltage is more than 0.5 VDC measured between PJ CN116-2 and GND then you need to replace the Drum Cartridge Reset Switch PL x.x. 2b. If voltage is less than 0.5 VDC measured between PJ CN116-2 and GND then actuate the Drum cartridge Reset Switch. Then check the voltage if its +5 VDC measured between PJ CN116-2 and GND. i. If not then replace the Drum Cartridge Reset Switch PL 5.. ii. Else it should be fine. iii. If not then replace the Main PWB, PL 7.1.

Need to reset replace drum message on Xerox Workcentre Pro 416

You can replace the chip on the drum unit. Or the drum unir itself.
Google a business called " the parts drop". They will have both the chip and or the drum cartridge. It is not resettable with a diagnostic code.

Actualy my copier is xerox work centre 5020. My problem is machine is indicate replace the drum cartridge. How can i solve my problem without buying drum cartridge set. Please helpme if any solution is...

Well, since the drum is a consumable, most of the copies is running life span counter. When the drum reached the life span, the message will pop out. Well, if the print out still ok, just ignore it.

Drum Cartridge XE Series P8 part number 13R553 Printer code J2

With "J2" flashing, press:
1. "CLEAR" button
2. "AUTO" button, then again
3. "CLEAR" button
4. "AUTO" button

Do it fairly quickly. If it's done quickly enough the display goes off. When it does:
5. enter "2" and "4" (see "24" on display)
6. Press "START/COPY"
7. Press "7"
8. Press "START/COPY"

If display doesn't go off repeat steps 1 to 4 but faster, until display is off.

Drum catridge codes

There is a drum counter clear that is service code 24-07.

Eventually your'e going to have to replace the drum. I can put you in touch with someone in the U.S. that can get you the parts you need.

To get into the service mode press #*C* on your copier keyboard.

Press 24 and the green key.
Press 7 and the green key.

J2 drum cartridge light no after replacing drum

J2 is the indication that the Drum Cartridge life has elapsed. The possibly exists that the Customer has installed a New Drum Cartridge. The Customer would be directed to change their Drum Cartridge by their User Guide. This action on the part of the Customer will cause the Drum Reset Switch to actuate for a moment when the Side Door is closed. This is with the provision that the Drum Reset Circuit is working properly. That momentary actuation of the Drum Reset Switch, being actuated by the New Drum, resets the Drum Counter. Should something be faulty with either the reset mechanism on the New Drum Cartridge, or the Drum Cartridge reset Switch circuit, the Counter will not reset. Note: A new Drum Cartridge will NOT reset the Drum Counter unless the machine is holding a J2 presenton the display. The first revolution of the Drum will render the Drum Cartridge used. A Used Drum Cartridge will NOT be capable of resetting a J2. Again, one revolution of a new Drum Cartridge will render it to be a used Drum . Cause:
