Resetting the drum life prompt??

The FIXYA ****, as usual is just 'that' - **** - it has instructions for MILLIONS of different printers and they are just trying to sell Advertising - so you have to WADE THROUGH S**T to get to the real answer, which often is WRONG - as in this case - on Fixya, the instructions, when you search for "drum error 8480dn" say "Open the front cover and press the Options button and choose Yes to the prompt about replacing/resetting the drum" - only there IS *NO* OPTIONS BUTTON ON THE 8480DN model - instead,

Open the front cover.
Press the Clear/Back button AND the Menu button at the same time
Choose "Yes" when prompted to replace/reset the drum life count
Close the front cover.

Even BROTHER DOES *NOT* HAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS, because they hope you do what we have been doing - see these continual DRUM ERRORS and then just REPLACE THE *ENTIRE* PRINTER! This is CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT material against Brother! Let's sue them! Thanks.

I have a Brother printer MFC-8480DN and on the lcd screen it said "replace drum" I did so and also changed the toner yet it still says replace drum any ideas? I've also turned the machine off and on.

There is an installation sheet in the box the drum unit came in that tells you how to reset the drum indicator. Here is a link to my tip posted here at Fixya that may help you as well. If it works for you then please return to this posting as give feedback.
Thank You for using Fixya.
