Re: dum problem

The actual button you push to make the message go away is clear and then select yes. The rest looks good.

Re: dum problem

Normal consumable life end alert, buy yourself a Gen Brother drum for your machine, and replace and reset counter (with front cover open press set I think, and select change drum YES. then ok) anyway should be instruction inb drum box when you get it


Drums wear out, they do a lot of work with little reward!   It will keep going for a while then you will experence a loss of print qualiy dark/light,marks,lines etc
