Question about Brother DCP-8060 All-In-One Laser Printer
Our laser printer keeps comming up with "Drum near end". not sure what to do now can you help.
There are two main parts in a laser printer: the toner cartridge and the image drum. Most people are familiar with the toner cartridge, but sometimes the drum is an unknown until you start seeing error messages or streaks and blotches begin appearing on the output.
In some printers, the drum is replaced along with the toner cartridge. But yours has a separate drum, and the printer is warning you it's nearing the end of its life. Replacements are available from a number of sources online, as well as at big-box office supply stores. Genuine Brother drum units will cost over $100, and after-market brands usually range from $50 to $75.
A typical vendor and price is here (I've never purchased from this place myself, and have just used it as an example):
