Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a MFC-8660DN that is not even three years old yet. I just replaced a toner cartirdge in the drum for the second time. The window shows red and says to reinsert the drum( not replace it). I bought a new drum ($200) just in case and tried the new drum with the new toner cartridge (x4 Diffrent cartridges)but I keep getting the message. I reinsatalled the entire printer to my computer from scratch like someone suggested and I have cleaned the posts like I was suggested to do. Nothing. What do I do? Is this printer gone? I bought it in the Summer of 2006.

When you replaced the drum did you reset the counter as per the instruction sheet with the new one? I think from memory you hold the OPTION button with the door open. This gives the option of resetting the count in the display.

Good luck these are usually very reliable.

Brother MFC 8660DN "Toner Error Reinstall Drum I got a new drum, new toner and still printer isn't working and show the error reinstall drum unit please help


Pull the drum/toner out and look into the machine, at the wall on your left. There's a little plastic lever there that pivots to detect a new toner cartridge. Sometimes the lever gets sticky; wiggle it to free it up. If you feel brave enough to remove the outside cover of the machine on that side, you can put a dab of grease on the lever's pivot.

Pull the paper tray, likley a small black lever to the left of the roller called the edge actuator is dislodged and hanging down. When in position the actuator should easily push up and appear flat next to the roller.

Need new drum for brother mfc-7220 all in one. Not even 1 year old. Is there something I can repair or fix instead of replacing the drum for about $100+ ?


If the print quality is still good, just reset the drum counter. Open the front door, press OPTION, press 1, close front door.

The toner tray will not pull out from the machine


Replacing the Toner Cartridge
The MFC can print up to 6,000 pages using a high yield toner cartridge. When
the toner cartridge is running low, the LCD shows TONER LOW. The MFC is
supplied with a standard toner cartridge that must be replaced after
approximately 3,000 pages. Actual page count will vary depending on your
average document type (i.e., standard letter, detailed graphics).
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations. If you are not
sure of them, your local Sanitation Department. Be sure to seal the toner
cartridge tightly so toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge. When
discarding used toner cartridges, keep them separate from domestic garbage.
We recommend that you clean the MFC when you replace the toner cartridge.
1 Open the front cover and pull out the drum unit.
Place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of disposable paper to avoid
spilling and scattering the toner.
2 Hold down the lock lever on the right and pull the toner cartridge out of the drum
unit assembly.
Caution
Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes,
immediately wipe it off or wash it with cold water.
3 Unpack the new toner cartridge. Place the used toner cartridge into the
aluminum bag and discard it according to local regulations.
 Wait to unpack the toner cartridge until immediately before you install it in the
MFC. If a toner cartridge is left unpacked for a long period of time, the toner life
is shortened.
 You can use only a genuine Brother toner cartridge (TN-430 or TN-460), which
is specially formulated to ensure top print quality. Using another brand of toner
cartridge may void your MFC’s warranty. Warranty coverage does not apply to
problems caused by the use of 3rd party Toner, 3rd party Toner Cartridge or 3rd
party Drum unit.
4 Gently rock the toner cartidge from side
to side five or six times to distribute the
toner evenly inside the cartridge.
5 Remove the protective cover.
6 Insert the new toner cartridge in the
drum unit until it clicks into place.
7 Clean the primary corona
wire inside the drum unit by
gently sliding the blue tab
from right to left several
times. Return the blue tab to
the Home position ( )
before reinstalling the drum
unit assembly.
Reinstall the drum unit and close the
front cover.
Replacing the Drum Unit
The MFC uses a drum unit to create print images on paper. If the LCD shows
CHANGE DRUM SOON, the drum unit is near the end of its life and it is time
to purchase a new one.
Even if the LCD shows CHANGE DRUM SOON, you may be able to continue
printing without having to replace the drum unit for a while. However, if there
is a noticeable deterioration in the output print quality (even before CHANGE
DRUM SOON appears), then the drum unit should be replaced. You should
clean the MFC when you replace the drum unit. (See page 21-18.)
Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully because it contains toner. If
toner scatters and your hands or clothes get dirty, immediately wipe or wash
with cold water.
WARNING
Just after you have used the MFC, some
internal parts of the MFC are extremely
HOT! So please be careful.
The drum unit is a consumable item, and it is necessary to replace it periodically.
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as temperature,
humidity, type of paper and how much toner you use for the number of pages per print
job. The estimated drum life is up to 20,000 pages. The actual number of pages your
drum will print may be significantly less than these estimates. Because we have no
control over the many factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot
guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be printed by your drum.

Black Vertical line on copies using MFC-8660DN


Vertical lines mean it is being caused by one of the rollers within the printer. This is usually either the toner cartridge or the fuser assembly. I would try changing out the toner cartridge first even if it is new as sometimes they are DOA and they are much cheaper than the fuser assemblies. If that doesn't work, probably the fuser assembly.

After replacing the toner, an abnormal sound of wheels coming


I just had the same problem.....I changed drum and toner at the same time.....bad sounds....tried old toner with new drum and "new" toner with old drum.....seems that the gears that move the toner and the drum were not meshing correctly. I determined that it was the "new" toner. I discarded new toner and used a different one....that fixed it
