Do not try to clean the drum. It can be permanently damaged by even a fingerprint. The drum is a consumable part of the IMAGING UNIT which must be replaced periodically. The IMAGING UNIT can be ordered as a supply item.

How or what needs to be cleaned, to remove an equal distant mark on center of the page every 76mm (3 inches).

Remove the drum unit and toner from the printer. Separate the toner from the drum. Look at the surface of the drum, rotating using the drive sprocket at one end. Look for a mark or foreign material on the surface of the drum in the same position as it is on the printed page. If you find anything, use a clean, dry kleenex tissue folded into a pad to carefully remove the mark and clean the drum. The 3 inches corresponds to the distance around the drum as it rolls down the page. If the mark cannot be removed, the drum should be replaced, it is a consumable that wears out in any case.

The fax machine is saying remove the drum there is dust on the corona wire.

Use the corona cleaning wire to clean the dust off. Open the front cover. Remove the drum/toner unit. look on the right side of the drum portion above the toner unit for a plastic tab with a triangle arrow that points to the left. Slide this tab back and forth several times. Move the tab back to the right. Reinstall the drum/toner unit. Close the front cover.

Clean the corona wire in this manner every time you change the toner/drum.

Need to replace the drum cleaning brush how do I get it out????

The drum cleaning blade removal is pretty straight forward.
1. Remove the charge unit above the drum.
2. Remove the cover that sits above the cleaning blade.
3. Release the pressure spring at front of drum unit.
4. Remove 1 screw (front side of blade at top) holding blade in place.

I noticed that you had also had a E3-40 code previously. If toner is dropping on to your copies, the toner support blade will also have to be replaced.
