Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

1 Answer

MFC-7420 GHOST IMAGES

Bought 9/08 40,000 copies so far
Using compatible cartriges/drum (Brother products are so expensive and I do a high volume of printing)
Started making Ghost images bottom 3rd of page when Printing.
Changed to Toner Saver (Better)
Tried higher quality/thicker laser paper (Worse)
The more pages I print at once the worse it gets as document goes along. I don't have time to print 1 page at a time.
I can go back and print single pages and I can get a better image
but still see 2nd image on bottom of page.
Brother had me clean laser glass and corona wire but will not help me futher because I am not using genuine brother toner/drum.
Help please client not happy with print quality.
Thanks

    Are these part of my drum unit (which I replaced recently)

    or actual machine and do you know if it would be covered under warranty?

    I love my HP1020 but today I started experiencing the same problem. I have cleaned but still have the problem.

Brother MFC 7420 change drum soon light, did, still says change drum soon, how do I rest the drum, I cannot find my manual. Tks


Simply open the front cover.

Press the Options key on the control panel.
The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".

Press 1 to reset the drum count.

Close the front cover.

This procedure wil work on the majority of the Brother MFC series of laser based Printer Scanner Fax Facsimile machines.

Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya

Brother MFC-7420 just started printing a shadow image


Sounds like a bad drum cartridge. Pull the toner/drum cartridge out of the machine and set it down. Press down on a (blue?) tab to release the toner cartridge, and you can lift the toner cartridge out of the drum cartridge. There is a cleaning blade in there - a soft plastic blade that rides against the drum and scrapes off toner that didn't get transferred to the paper. If it gets stuck off the drum surface, images repeat a few inches (one drum circumference) down the page.

A new DR-350 drum unit should fix it. have the machine's power on when replacing it. While the door is open, touch the CLEAR key. The display will read "REPLACE DRUM?" or something like that. Press 1 for Yes.

Check your owner's manual, and there's one in the install disk. It will show you where there are electric contacts inside where the drum is. You may have to take the drum out to see them. You're supposed to clean them with isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. Don't get alcohol on anything else.

Drum on Brother MFC-7420


Why does the message "CHANGE DRUM SOON" continue to appear on the LCD display of my Brother machine, after I replaced the drum? Description: This message would continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum counter, follow the instructions listed below. Open the front cover. Press the Options key on the control panel. The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO". Press 1 to reset the drum count. Close the front cover.
