Question about Panasonic KX-P7110 Laser Printer

2 Answers

How to reset counter or access service menu? After certain amount of printed pages LED indicates "drum has to be replaced". I am sure that this is too early. Because it likes to print clear pages (e.g. if in duplex print mode computer sends only one page to printer, which is printing nothing to other side of paper page). Only temporarily I want to simulate the drum replacement. Thanks...

To reset the counter that determines when the error 'drum unit needs replacing' just hold down the Print/Reset button for 20 seconds and reset the counter. It then will work OK afterwards!

Of course, the printer settings can be changed via the standard print options menu in Windows but to reset the counter is done when a new cartridge is installed. But this is how I would proceed... Since the printer and the cartridge are in "cahoots", I'd not give them the chance to communicate. Do this: Place some tape over the electronic contacts on the cartridge. (This prevents the printer and cartridge communicating) Then... Setup another printer icon using the HP Laserjet 4 (MS) printer driver. (This ensures no communication between the installed software and the printer). This should allow you to print some more, but not duplex of course. Remember to shake the cartridge from side to side in order to loosen impacted toner. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's

Drum Life Ends soon - Brother


The problem with this is the design. Each toner cartridge has a microchip on it, that counts the pages you print. The company has determined that you get x amounts of prints. Then you have to replace it, empty or not. This printers do not work the same way as an expensive professional business copier. In an pro style there is a spent toner cartridge that collects all of the wasted toner that is on the drum. On a small business/home style this spent toner goes back into the cartridge. There is no level indicator, even on the inkjet printer. They too, have a chip that says you have x amount of prints/cleaning cycles they can go through. Look up inkjet refill kits or inkjet cartridge programmer.

MFC 8440 drum changed but still states to change drum soon. Faxes are only coming in after turning off/on machine. It indicates printing but nothing happens.


There were instructions with the new drum cartridge that explained how to reset the drum counter. If you still have the box and paperwork, then go through that step-by-step and reset the counter. The machine still thinks that it has the old drum. After a certain amount of copies or prints, the machine will save itself by turning off the printer or copy functions.
