I just installed a new drum and toner cartrideg last week and the error message says drum is near end. Should the toner cartride be replaced?


Hi there,

After replacing the drum and toner you may need to reset the drum life of the machine. This is how to reset the drum life:
Open the front cover where the drum and toner are located. Press the clear/back key. Lcd should show Replace Drum? Then press 1 for yes. Lcd should show accepted. Close the front cover the press stop/exit. Lcd now should show the date and time.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Does the 'Drum Near End' message for MFC 8460N mean to indicate the toner cartridge needs replaced?


Same with our Brother 8640N, drum near end means toner is nearly to end but sometimes even you replace bew cartridge is appears this message. TONER LIFE END message need to replace cartridge.

How do you get rid of drum near end after you have installed a new drum on a brother MFC 8860 DN?


Responsibly recycle it -- one company (Office Depot) even offers you store-credit if you take it to them for recycling.

Factory reset a brother MFC-8460N printer mfp


Looks like <0> followed by <3> will let you input your fax number, phone number and company name. When you need letters instead of numbers experiment with the keypad. For example to input the letter "c" press the <2> three times. To input the letter "h" press the <4> key twice. You will get the hang of this easily.

What does it mean when it says Drum near end


It means the drum has nearly reached the end of it's useful life, just a warning before it says it is all used up. If quality is still good you can open the front door and press the menu or options key and tell it it's a new drum and keep printing until the print quality fades.

This sometimes happen when you dont use genuine cartridges/drums, you can leave it flash just let everyone know to watch for changes in print quality since you will no longer have a warning for this drum. when its near its end.
