This tip is proven in our machines could it be AR, ARM or AL series. To avoid the error above refill the toner cartridge ahead of time before the triangular dots(toner low warning in red light) gives warning. Just estimate the level of toner by checking your page count from previous refill. Failure to do so will require you to replace the crum chips or the entire toner cartridge.
the DK message means it is time to replace the black drum unit. the drum unit is called an ARC26DU. open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge/s by lifting the green
lever and pulling the toner out. Open the left side door. look at where
you just pulled out the toner and there is one screw (facing you)
holding each drum in place - loosen the screw and pull the drum unit out
towards you....slide in the new drum unit. to reset drum counter go into SIM mode by pressing the following keys one after the other "P" "*" "C" "*" then 24 and start/copy key then 7 then select the color drum you are replacing and confirm reset. make sure copier restarts afterwards
DO NOT refill these toner cartridges (even if you can find someone to do it) The toner cartridges for these machines have generally had ongoing problems as far as longevity and quality - refilling them will only make it worse.
An easier way is to take out the whole developer unit. Pull down green handle as if you were replacing the toner, there is to the lower right of the developer unit a white handle that if you move to the right will allow you to remove the DV unit. Then there are 5 or 6 screws around the top edge that will allow you to remove the top and manually refill it there instead of trying to refill the cart and making a bigger mess.
