Drum reset for Panasonic kx-mb781

1. My display said I was going ot need to replace my drum and then it stopped and the display said to replace it.
2. I then removed the old drum and reinserted the old drum back and nothing changed.
3. I then replaced the od drum with the new drum and everything worked fine.
4. Just for kicks, I then replaced the old drum and the old drum now works fine.
5. I conclude that the new drum reset the machine's counter.

IS THERE A WAY TO MANUALLY RESET THE COUNTER?

There is a little special (white) gear on the outer left side of the drumkit - a little bit below where the toner sits. That gear joins with toner mixing assy - and you can rotate it in counterclockwise all the way back. This should reset the drum counter - worked for me - I hope it also does the trick for you ;-)

There is no way to reset the counter manually and by not using your new drum, you might have just lost it when it says replace drum again

While waiting for the new drum to arrive from Amazon, I need to print an urgent document. Once I followed HobbesVT's suggestion and turned the white gear counterclock-wise, the printer print a beautiful page and no more "replace the drum" error message. Not sure how long will this last, but definitely worked in a bind.

I need to reset the drum supply how do i go about it


On this specific unit, the drum actually has a small resister on the back of the drum unit that resets the machine when a new drum unit is installed. Your options are either to replace the drum unit with a new one or find the exact resistor from your local electronics store and replace it ( not recommended as the drum life is already reached) there is nowhere a menu that lets you reset the drum. Hope that helps

Reset drum


I think this machine does not have a reset option instead you can reset manually.All you have to do is on the right side of drum unit there exist a white + type notch,rotate it clockwise till it allows.Put back drum unit into machine.Switch on and see replace drum and supplies message will disappear.In my case it worked.Hope this is the best solution.All the best
