    The toner cartridge is going in like 2/3 weeks its ridiculous! The printer is saying drum ends soon, so i know i must put a new one in. So if i oput a new one in will the toner last longer?

So you use old drum which should be cost too much toner, because the older drum can not be charged normal voltage so that images on it will consume more toner on it, and more waste toner goes to the waste toner box.
change a drum ASAP.

I had this very same problem, and after I replaced the drum it still said the same thing. What you have to do is on the top of the printer; press the settings button - press it until you see printer function - then you have to reset the printer drum. That will take care of the problem after replacing the drum. Hopefully this will help.

Model ar5516. Why is drum not cleaning?


Sir,
Did you prime the cleaning blade with toner when you installed it?, and did you ensure the new cleaning blade did not flip!!!!, re-check the new installed cleaning blade, place a small amount of toner from the toner bottle on the drum along the whole drum. and using your hands at both end of the drum DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM" turn just a 1/4" CCW (To ensure the cleaning blade is set) then CW to see if the toner is removed. your drum might need to be replaced and or the fuser unit have a example of the copy?

MY HP LaserJet 2840 has a brand new Toner cartridge. Now it won't print at all and we are getting a "OPC at end of life" prompt. What does this mean?


Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.

Supplies life
The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs
require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed.
The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum
life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print
multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times.
The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and
yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)

I have a problem with canon ir2016j photocopy, system error E019


E019 usually means the waste toner is full. I think its in the drum on these so a new drum will be required.

Drum is under the front cover.

We need to replace the drum unit on a Minolta Di3510 and were told that when you replace the drum unit you also need to replace the developer. Where and how is the developer replaced on this unit.


Not familiar with your model.... but...
When you install the toner cartridge, the toner is routed into a developer unit. this unit has "developer" in it that mixes with the toner. Generally you purchase the developer, remove the developer unit, remove the top cover of the unit, empty the contents of the unit. add the new deveoper to the unit, replace the cover, install the toner cartridge. a lot of times this requires going into service mode to reset the developer count and run a conditioning mode. Not sure if this is any help but here you go.

Cannot remove toner cartridge


There is a manual removal option. Open the front cover. Then the top. Remove the drum. Close the front cover. (leave the top open). Move the toner housing unit so the required toner is accessable from the back. Remove.

Replace drum. Restart printer. The housing unit shoud rotate the empty spot to the front so you can insert the new toner.

Good luck.

Imagerunner 1310 drum change


To change the drum you have to slide the plattened cover to the left,like you do when removing a paper jam,open the top cover,you will see a handle that you pull to remove the defeloping and drum unit,remove the drum and def unit.
The drum is attached by two clips on top of def unit,unlock the drum from the def by releasing that clips,slide te drum protecktion plate to the rear and remove the drum.insert the new drum by reversing this steps.
If your image of your copies is not bad you can remove the waste toner in the drum unit before replacing it.On top of the drum there are two plugs open them and remove the waste toner,make sure you remove all of the waste toner.Then that message will go away.

Problem in accepting the tonner by machine


This is a common problem. You need to be sure that the toner and drum unit are seated correctly. I assume you. You may also want to try a different toner in case the chip is bad on it.

The following has been known to work also. Open front cover leaving the toner cartridge and drum unit in.
Press the Options button,
When "Replace Drum?" comes up quickly press the Start button.
Immediately press the "1" and "0" button. The display will say "Accepted" and the error will go away.
You need to this these pretty quickly.

Xerox copier


J messages on Xerox machines always refer to toner or drum.Is the toner out , you could give it a shake (might be a good idea to go outside!) Sometimes it will run out without displaying a message(Pyramid of dots for out of toner) Drum end of life usually comes up with a crossed circle or similar .If all OK you could have a blocked toner supply auger or lumps caused by storing toner in sunlight, both would require the toner system being vacuumed out.
