Panasonic PanaFax UF-490 Problem with Drum Unit

Our office fax told us to replace the Drum Unit which we have dutifully done. However it is still telling us to replace said drum unit. We have attempted taking out the drum unit, turning off the machine and replacing it once more all to no avail. The fax has now started claiming that it has a document mis-fed or a document jam frequently even when it has no paper jammed in it at all.

Warming up error code 2 2 hours warming up my machine bizhub 600


Sir/Mam,
Have you had the developer and drum replaced recently, or does the screen say Replace PC Drum? There are certain house chores the copier does before "Ready to Copy" it is waiting for them to get done, so that equals "Please Wait". One big item is making sure the developer and toner are properly mixed inside the image unit underneath the drum or next to it depending on the series. Might want to have the developer replaced and drum/cleaning blade normally done all together, then run the F8 procedure/Developer Charge, and make sure the counters where cleared. Did you recently replace the drum and the developer if so did you clear the counters for the drum and developer, FIRST? IF not then the copier thinks the new drum and new developer are old. The copier works on the counters that is how it knows it got a new drum and developer. Get new developer and a new drum and have it installed correctly. Counters are clear before the unit is yanked out of the machine, then you remove the image unit/drum unit replace the developer/drum and cleaning blade. (DO NOT USE A VACUUM CLEANER WHEN REPLACING THE DEVELOPER static electricity can destroy the sensor located below the developer unit. Then reinstall and RUN F8/Developer Charge. Make sure the fax line and Ethernet cable is removed can't print anything until the F8 is run. Or you will start all over again with new developer and a new drum.

Toner for fax machine 2920


If your machine is a Brother Intellifax 2920, it does take a TN-350 toner cartridge. Maybe you were wanting to replace the Drum Unit instead, DR-350. I'll bet this info is useful, yes?

Office Fax is telling us to replace drum unt.


Look at the sticker on the machine to get into Maintenance and clear the drum count. I think it's Function 9 set.
