Question about Brother DR-400 Replacement Drum - 20000 pages Printer

Brother drum replacement

Hello:

We have a number of Brother printers and MFC's within our company (HL-1440, DCP 8060's, so on). I put off changing the drum as soon as the 'Replace Drum' indicator appears; I usually go through the drum replacement sequence in the menu settings without actually changing the drum. I only change the drum when something actually happens to the print-outs caused by a faulty drum.

Am I actually affecting the toner cartridge and/or printer by not immediately replacing the drum when the indicator appears?

Thanks.

-Steve

You could damage the gears if the drum jams up but that unlikely

Error message "put the black toner cartridge back in"


I got this same error message on a newly acquired Brother DCP-7040 that I purchased used off of ebay.

As I was troubleshooting this unit (that I bought untested off of ebay - hey gambling has paid off handsomely for me many times before!), this error message kept popping up.

I checked the COUNTERS (page & Drum life) and found out that the DRUM had 0% life left. BUT, the reason it showed ZERO was because this unit did not have any drum! The toner cartridge (TN-360) needs to sit WITHIN the drum (DR-360) on this DCP-7040 unit, as well as in models DCP-7030, MFC-7340, MFC-7345C, and MFC-7440N.

So perhaps some of these "put the black toner cartridge back in" problems could be related to the DRUM (or lack thereof). A possible tipoff (since the toner cartridge actually does slide into the unit much like other units that do not use Brother's DRUM carrier) seems to be the relative ease with which the toner cartridge slides into the DCP-7040 and really doesn't seem to "lock" into position real firmly.

I replaced my drum and the output quality is poor and light in areas


did you clear the required counters and run required procedures? If not the machine still thinks it has a old drum because counter was not cleared only way copier will know it has a new drum

Brother DCP 8060 is displaying drum near end what does thic mean


After approx. 25000 pages you should replace drum unit

This message would appear if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

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 below:

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Press the Clear/Back key.
  3. Press 1 to reset.
  4. Close the front cover, pressing firmly on each side until they click into place.

My Brother HL-1440 Laser printer is not printing. Whenever I try to print something there is a sound coming from the printer with a high tone, then a low tone. This is the first time I have experienced...


this is normally a symptom of the Fuser unit failing within the printer. our company uses nothing but Brother printers and i have seen this error a few times.

on very rare occasions its not the fuser and unplugging the power lead and leaving it for ten minutes will resolve the problem. if you have already tried this however the problem your getting is to-do with the Fuser unit within the printer being broken..

unfortunately from past experiences a replacement fuser unit for one of these laser printers is actually more than the cost of a new laser printer...

a quick google search revealed this site who are offering fuser replacements for $119.00

hope this helps.

"drum near end". What is this? is it easy to fix? how do you fix?


There are two main parts in a laser printer: the toner cartridge and the image drum. Most people are familiar with the toner cartridge, but sometimes the drum is an unknown until you start seeing error messages or streaks and blotches begin appearing on the output.

In some printers, the drum is replaced along with the toner cartridge. But yours has a separate drum, and the printer is warning you it's nearing the end of its life. Replacements are available from a number of sources online, as well as at big-box office supply stores. Genuine Brother drum units will cost over $100, and after-market brands usually range from $50 to $75.

A typical vendor and price is here (I've never purchased from this place myself, and have just used it as an example):
