This sometimes happen when you dont use genuine cartridges/drums, you can leave it flash just let everyone know to watch for changes in print quality since you will no longer have a warning for this drum. when its near its end.

I just installed a new drum and toner cartrideg last week and the error message says drum is near end. Should the toner cartride be replaced?


Hi there,

After replacing the drum and toner you may need to reset the drum life of the machine. This is how to reset the drum life:
Open the front cover where the drum and toner are located. Press the clear/back key. Lcd should show Replace Drum? Then press 1 for yes. Lcd should show accepted. Close the front cover the press stop/exit. Lcd now should show the date and time.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Does the 'Drum Near End' message for MFC 8460N mean to indicate the toner cartridge needs replaced?


Same with our Brother 8640N, drum near end means toner is nearly to end but sometimes even you replace bew cartridge is appears this message. TONER LIFE END message need to replace cartridge.

You need to order the drum unit. It's different from the toners. You can replace it after the part comes in - you do not need a technicain to come in to do it for you. You can find the part from Amazon or Brother website.
