SOURCE: "drum near end". What is this? is it easy to fix? how do you fix?

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):

SOURCE: Replaced drum and it still says " DRUM NEAR END "

When you replace the drum, this message will continue to appear untill you reset it. To do this just follow the simple instructions below.

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Press the Clear/Back key.
  3. Press 1 to reset.
  4. Close the front cover, pressing firmly on each side until they click into place.


I hope this helps

I have a Brother HL 4070CDW printer and the Dum end soon light will come on daily. What does this mean and how do I fix this problem? If you need to please call me at 412-452-5975. Thank You, Rebecca...


Hi there !

Don't worry, it does not detect any hardware failure. Drum end near means that your toner is lower and soon it will end.

If you just replaced new toner and still drum end near message comes up. Just make a hard reset of your printer by removing the cartridge and turning off the printer in 5-10 minutes. Then return the cartridge and try to print again. It will refresh the memory of the printer and the message will disappear.

I hope it helps you.

What does it mean when it says Drum near end


It means the drum has nearly reached the end of it's useful life, just a warning before it says it is all used up. If quality is still good you can open the front door and press the menu or options key and tell it it's a new drum and keep printing until the print quality fades.

Whats the difference between a DRUM and a TONER Cartridge? The toner cartridge is a cartridge holding the toner (ink). The drum does the work to transfer the ink to the paper. You will need to replace the drum every 5-6 toner cartridges you use.
