Re: Drum Life Warning Message

NOTE: Perform the following procedure to reset the Drum Cartridge counter after you replace the Drum Cartridge. Do not perform this procedure at any other time. From the Standby Mode, press the [Menu] (up arrow) button, then press [5], [2], [0], [4]. The screen will display: Change drum. Yes No Press [1], then press [Enter]. The screen will display: Completed. Press [Stop] to return to the Standby Mode. These directions were found on the Xerox website, and worked for me.

Alarm says replace drum soon. Can the message be

The "replace drum soon" indicater is a warning for you to have a new replacement drum "on-hand". Soon the display will change to "REPLACE DRUM" AT WHICH TIME THE UNIT WILL STOP PRINTING.
When the new drum cartridge is then installed...the REPLACE DRUM indicator will be reset. DO NOT replace the drum before the machine says to.

Change drum soon message won't go away after changing drum and toner. what do I need to do?

35YRTECH, aren't you being a wee bit flippant? I just changed my drum, had the same problem, and no where in mys instructions does it tell me how to inform the printer that I did reset the drum.

Anyway, here's how to do it (form the brother web site)

  • This message would appear if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.
  • This message would continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below:

    1. Open the front cover.
    2. Press the Clear/Back key.
    3. Press 1 to reset.
    4. Close the front cover, pressing firmly on each side until they click into place.

How do you reset memory board for muratec f-320 . I am trying to get rid of an error message"Replace drum unit printer not useable". Installed new drum unit and still gives the same error message.

Before doing complete Memory clear try the following...
Press..PROGRAM,*,*,I(thats the letter I),then ENTER.
That should reset it. Only replace the new drum into the machine when the machine says "Replace Drum"...NOT when it says "replace drum soon".
As a last resort a complete memory clear is PROGRAM,*,3.....but be warned this will clear all memory back to factory defaults "except" the Life Monitor which has the counters.

Had toner life end message. Replaced toner and drum with oem,machine reset but now just making blank copies. Tried to print internal report that's blank too

To reset the sensor after installing a new toner cartridge follow these steps.

2. Press the "Options" key. Display will show "Replace Drum?"
3. Press "Start" key.
4. Press 1,0 .
5. Display will show "Accepted" for approximately 2 seconds. Then display will change to "Cover Open".
6. Close cover and see if Toner Life End error message has gone.
Please note that this must be done with a new cartridge so the unit will see that there is toner in the cartridge.

IntelliFAX 4750 Toner Empty

Hi, have you changed the drum anytime soon? If so did you clear the message before installing the new drum? The only other option would be to try a diffrent toner. There is not toner reset counter like there is for the drum! So I would reset the drum counter and see what happens. Good Luck
