Drum replacement -- "Option" button not avail. to complt install

Just replaced the drum unit; final instructs say to press "Option" button, "Replace drum", then "Accepted" will show. The Option button on this machine only deals with "Copies" (temp settings for copies). So, how do I get this machine to accept the new drum? Also, how do I reset the drum counter? Can't find answers in the manual :-( Thanks for any assistance. -- Cathie

    thats what i'm saying. you did everything right except open the front cover first. open cover, press "option" press "1" and when it shows accepted, close front cover and that should reset drum counter.



    good luck,

Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset
  • MFC / DCP PRINTER SERIES

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!
