How do I reset the drum life of a DCP7010

Hi does anyone know how to reset the drum life of the 7010? I would like to continue using the old drum until it actually breaks. Also how do you refill the toner of the TN2025 toner cartridge. Thanks in advance.

    Hi again sorry, someone already answered this question.
    In case somebody needs to know here's the answer

    1. Open the front cover
    2. Press options
    3. LCD appears change drum?
    4. Answer with a yes.

    The change drum soon stops blinking.

    But I would still like to ask how to refill the toner, and what kind of toner should I use. Thanks.

My Brother printer dcp 7010 is great. But before it ran out of toner it started not printing very well in a line down the left hand side of the page. All else is easy to read. New Laser printer/toner and it still does it. It also now has some dots on the left hand margin. Can anyone help.

Drum life low replace soon Error Message

I already answered this at some other place here - but just to make sure the word gets out there:

There is a little special (white) gear on the outer left side of the drumkit - a little bit below where the toner sits. That gear joins with toner assembly - and you can rotate it counterclockwise all the way back. This should reset the drum counter - worked for me!

I hope it also does the trick for you ;-)

Error message Sharp FO-4450 Fax machine

Press life "2" start for toner.

And life "3" start for drum.

These will reset the counters.

If you are having a "check drum error" then you have broken the sensor arm that is attached to your lid.

Call a technician in your area.
