Is this a brand new drum from Brother or is it refilled? When you inserted the new drum/toner cartidge assembly into the printer and before closing the front cover you need to press the "Option" button. You should then see "Replace Drum?" appear on the LCD. Press the up arrow key which should result in "Accepted" being displayed on the LCD. If you didn't do this give it a try and you should be good to go. If your still stuck let us know otherwise please don't forget to rate the post.

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.

"Please change PC Drum" message appear on printers LCD


If your print job prints ok, ignore it. Just bear in mind you'll need a new drum soon. The drum is a light sensative roller that ink from the toner cartridge adheres to where the laser hits it. When it is no longer magnatized enough to hold the toner you'll see your print jobs start to lose that toner color. Just pull the drum out, buy a new one and put it in. Just don't expose the drum to light very long.

Changing the drum


I fixed the problem (following the user's guide).
1. After reinstalling the new drum unit into the printer, keep the front cover open.
2. Press "Clear/Back" on the machine
3. Press "1" and when the LCD shows "Accepted", close the front cover.
