Drum light is on


This usually means that you need to replace the drum on the printer. Most likely it's under 10%, because that's when the warning light comes on. Depending on the printer, you may have 50-150 pages before it completely fails. I would advise to get it replaced soon.

Reminder: A drum is NOT the toner. It's normally a device that may house the toner. Or a separate part.

My printer dcp 7040 keeps telling me DRUM ERROR troubleshooting... How can i fix this??


Sounds like you will need to replace the drum. You can order a drum kit from Grand and Toy or from the Brother website. There are also many other websites you can order a drum kit from. Once the Drum unit is replaced your printer will start working again.

For a cheaper solution you can always reset the drum kit making the printer believe that the drum kit was replaced. For this you might need the manual.

Hope this helps
