This is a cartridge-type drum meaning that one can hardly do anything wrong.
I dealt with the company below for many years and was never disappointed with service or product:
Precision Roller
Go ahead, make your day ;-)

yes anyone can do this, the drum is the unit the toner fits into, remove as though you were removing the toner cartridge, that the toner all the way out of the drum unit and install the old toner in the new drum and slide back into printer, again the drum unit is just the casing that your toner cartridge slips in and out of

Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations.

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.

Getting a message saying change belt unit...what's that? is it easy to change? Replaced Drum Unit 6 months ago and I still get message Drum Unit end soon.


The instructions to reset the drum after changing are packed with the new drum, and the belt unit is the transfer belt that also wears out and needs changing periodically. The instructions are packed with that also and not hard to change.

Change drum soon will not clear after new drum inserted


This machine is reset with a plastic sheet that come in the new drum unit. When the drum is inserted for the first time, the sheet slides out and trip the exit sensor in a certain way. Then the counter is cleared. If you still have this clear plastic sheet, then you can reinsert it into the top of the drum unit and try it again.
