Question about Panasonic Office Equipment & Supplies
The printer says ''Drum Life Low''. How does a drum have a life? Is it different than toner replacement?
The drum or photoconductor is the part of a laser printer that is lit by the laser, during which it is magnetically charged to attract the toner (ink powder), which it rolls of onto the paper before it's fixed by the fuser.
the drum's time of use is defined by a digital counter either inside the printer's system board, either through a chip in the drum's casing, to ensure the ability to be magnetised and to provide the best possible print quality.
there are tools to reset these counters, although it's advised to replace the drum to avoid loss of print quality, since the drum is very sensitive to overexposure to concentrated light.
