Actually no need to replace your drum until it death.
but so for your problem
what you need to do is only
Push "start" buttom
Hold for 1 min and see the 4 lights on.
After that you should be fine.

How sound of an investment is purchasing a 2014 Ford Taurus lmtd w/select shift and the 3.5l To VCT V6 FFV engine?


Personally when I buy a car, I buy one that is 3 to 4 years old with under 20,000 miles. You save around 40 to 50 % off the price of a new car. You also get a car that has a lot of life in it and is very reliable due to the very low miles on it. This is the best way to make a sound investment. No new cars make a sound investment, due to the very high depreciation in the first 3 or 4 years of ownership.

The drum light has come on indicating it is near the end of its life. Do I need to buy a new printer or can the drum be replaced. model HL-2030/2040/207ON


Hello, Wendy.

Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

I've seen your drum price for about $120 (USD), so it would be cost-effective to purchase a new drum.

Hope this helps.

I replaced my black ink with a cheap brand that did not work. I then bought the expensive xerox ink and replaced it. I still get poor quality .. HELP


This printer is designed to print up to 50 000 pages trough its life. After that the transfer belt and the drum have to be replaced but the price is more than a new printer. So first check the counter (press the button and it will print it)
The cheap toner has entered in the black developing module where it mixed with the remained old original toner. They differ and tend to curdle. This is why printouts are poor after installing the new original toner. Try to print 20-50 black pages to take the curdled mix out. The developing module is part of the drum unit. It is hard to take apart and clean but not impossible. Buying a new drum unit is the last step, even after getting a new printer.

Stylus C84 ''Parts of your printer have reached the end of their useful life...'' Both the ink out & paper jam red lights are flashing and the printer (green) light will not come on. It says refer to...


Yes, the printer can be fixed, but you'll pay $50 to $100 to a qualified technician, i.e., a _bad_ investment, when a new printer is in that same price-range.

Do some "research", to find which new EPSON printer will take the same print-cartridges that you just have purchased. Or, try to sell those cartridges on 'www.UsedEveryWhere.com', or donate them to a local non-profit agency.

The onboard flash just stopped working


It's either the charging circuit, the capacitor or the flash tube, but unless your camera is still under the Olympus two year worldwide warranty (if purchased from an authorised Olympus Dealer within Europe, proof of purchase required) then you'll have to either send the camera to Olympus for a repair estimate (this costs £15 if you choose to have the camera returned unrepaired) or take it to an independent camera repairer for diagnosis.

The above links/prices are for the UK but should help you navigate to your own country if different.

Alternatively, don't bother with the repair of the pathetically weedy onboard flash and invest the money on a proper external flash instead. You don't have to buy the overpriced Olympus/Panasonic offerings; there are cheaper non-dedicated flash units (you'll need to learn a little bit about how to use them, but they are VERY cheap) or you can buy the excellent Metz 48 AF-1 which is available as an Oly/Panasonic unit and in the UK/Europe is cheaper than a genuine Oly/Panasonic flash. Metz are the undisputed market leaders in flash units and always retain an excellent resale value.

Hope this has helped you, please return the favour by taking a moment to rate my answer.

Drum light flashing


For the Price of these Brother Printers, it's cheaper to just buy a new Printer. I have a Drum Light and Toner Light on at the same time. Currently the copies still look great so I'm just going to let it go until this stops.
