No, when you need to replace the drum, you must replace the drum. You don't want to mess around resetting fuses on the drums. They go about 10,000 pages on the 5500; then start to make lines, streaks etc on the printout. Why would you want that.

you need to install a new drum and then reset the drum counter:
1.- Open front door
2.- Change the drum Unit
3.- Press Go button and keep pressing until the 4 lights turn on
4.- Release the button and close the door
The 2840 is a slightly different sort of machine when it comes to supplies. There is a main imaging drum unit which works for all four colors, and then there of course are the 4 colors. If the unit was asking for a drum unit then you should have instaled a Q3964A. It is entirely possible that your drum unit and black cartridge both expired at the same time, in which case, you need a black toner cartridge now.
This machine has a separate drum and toner cartridge. Replacing the toner does not reset the drum light. Double check that the light on is, in fact, the drum light, and if it is, replace the drum unit. This should resolve your problem.
In order to replace the drum unit, do this:
1) With the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover.
2) Press and hold the Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all LEDs light up, release the Go button.
3) Pull the print assembly out of the machine.
4) Push down the green lock lever to take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.
5) Put the toner cartridge into the new drum unit.
6) Reinsert the print assembly into the machine.
7) Close the front cover and verify that the lights turn off.
It is theoretically possible that you could reset the counter without actually changing the drum by simply skipping steps 3-6 above, but I have never tried it before and Brother may be checking a chip on the drum unit to verify that it is, in fact, a new drum unit. If they are, you will have to actually replace the unit to make the light go off. I would strongly recommend against resetting the counter without actually changing the drum though, as your print quality will degrade and the machine may start to dump toner into the inside creating a rather large mess and a hefty repair bill.
Although you can not reset the counter by any buttons. You can replace the chip on the cartridge at a far less price.
Google a business called "the parts drop".
I have done business with them for years. Give them a call, ask for Britt, they will have what you need. They are simply the best people to deal with for Xerox parts. Courteous and honest.
Cant ask for more.
The chip is easy to replace.
