The drum is the light sensitive device that "senses' the laser to create an image. They are replaceable, although usually expensive.

Good luck

Why does my Brother HL 3070CW keeps saying "drum error, clean corona wire on drum". I have cleaned all the corona wires, but still getting the same message.

You have to replace your drum with a new one. It has been worn out and cannot keep the primary charge, resulting poor image quality

Brother printer keeps saying prepare new drum, i have installed the new drum and error keeps popping up

Hey Heather,

I've had this problem recently--what you'll need to do is press GO and + at the same time. You'll need to get it just right otherwise you'll end up pausing the machine a ton. That should take you to a list of parts, just scroll to drum kit and press 'Set' to reset it.

My DCP7020 is printing too light , even when I set contrast to maximum. What can I try?

If toner save is turned on all will be light, you need to check in user settings, also remove the drum and wipe the narrow glass that is above where the drum sits inside.
