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.

I have a Brother MFC 7420 and the copies have spots all over them. Does this mean that I have to replace the drum or replacing the toner cartridge is enough. I am not getting any kind of message on the screen on the printer

Tried to do this, but my keypad no longer works: i.e., I press 1 and it doesn't reset the drum. Any other ideas on how to do that?

Drum end soon brother mfc 7320 printer usb002


My Brother MFC 7420 said drum end soon, so I ordered a new drum. Then I waited for something to go wrong before I replaced it. Basically I was looking for a deterioration in print quality. I waited and waited. I think it was over 3 years. I replaced the toner a few times. While the print quality never really went done, the frequency of other problems finally shot up. When I replaced the drum the problems went away. My advice -- ignore the warning unless you have other problems.

MFC-7420 "Change Drum Soon" I have had this message for a while. I purchased a new drum. In the meantime the printer continues to print fine, except we have paper feed problems. Is the drum related to...


the only time i've seen the drum affect paper feeding is if paper jams in the drum unit. i would use your current drum until print quality decreases to an unacceptable level. it will not shut down, and you will not see a "change drum message." if your paper feed problem is centered around the cassette/paper pickup area, you can try cleaning your rollers with water and a soft rag, and also make sure your rear paper stopper in cassette isn't pressing too tightly against the rear of paper stack. best to leave 1/8" gap, otherwise paper will not lift properly to the rollers.

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.
