SOURCE: Hae brother MFC-8500 and just replaced

This is an easy one. With the power on, open the front door, where you installed the drum. Press the CLEAR button. The display will ask something like, "Change Drum? Press 1 for yes. Press 2 for no."
Press 1.
Close the front door.

This is something you can replace, its a consumable, the model number is DR-400, and can be purchased pretty much anywhere that sells brother products.

How do I reset the unit after changing the drum?

there is a reset counter in the menu options.
at least there is, on my model of Brother, its a 8890DW, very similar to the one pictured.

from the 8890 user manual:

put the new drum unit and toner cartridge assembly in the machine. do not close the front cover.

Press Clear/Back

on the LCD display, it will say "Replace Drum? Yes/no"

to confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1.
when the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.

i got this information from the Brother Manual online.
heres the link to all the manuals for your model printer:

the info was found under Troubleshooting / Replacing Consumables near the end of the document.

i hope this helps!
