Canon 8170 8180 printer prepare new drum message

I have both an 8170c and 8180c ImageClass printer/multifunction unit and would like to override the "prepare new drum" message if possible... Considering that the drum costs half as much as the new printer, and the message comes up every 3-4 months, I'd like to be able to use the drum unit until there is actually some degradation in image quality thanks Mike in Port Dover

    Sorry Daniyal, I don't understand...

    What did you mean to say about a "chip"?

    I realize that the image drum and toner cartridges
    contain an electronic chip that contains data on
    how many times the unit has been used

    What I am wondering is: is there a "reset" function that allows a technician to clear the
    memory of the chip so that the printer can continue to operate beyond the set number of
    copies that is programmed into the drum unit?

    I have the same message on my MF8180C to "Prepare New Drum ". I to would like to decide when to replace it not them. Last week it forced me to replace my black cartridge. It would not let me print until I did replace it. There was no problem with the print quality. Has anyone had success with defeating this to continue on?
    Thanks

You have to paste a piece of paper on the sensors that looks like 2 blocks (i used the sticky side of a post it note). that will fool the printer and get rid of the prompt

    I tried pasting the sticky on the sensors and it did get rid of the drum prompt, but now it won't print at all and I get a message saying "check printer". The print quality is still excellent. Any ideas??

I do not understan your reply completely.
Where does the extra chip come from?

I send or try to copy a document on the 8180c printer, it sets out the paper, but there is no image on the paper


If this was the case all the time, I would imagine you have an incorrect driver in the Laser Printer. You should be able to upgrade the drivers by contacting the the Canon Co.
If this is a new problem the static bar that runs across the drum has lost it's positive charge to produce the picture should be replaced ... its not cheap !
