Minolta 2530 DL "low drum" message

I just got the "drum low" message, but the printer is working fine and copies are good. Is it OK to get the fuse reset kit like the one's sold on ebay and continue using the old drum? I see drum kits on ebay too. Should I go that route? thanks, ken

The drum loses its ability to accept the image after a fair number of copies

A lot of machines monitor the drum voltages required to obtain a good print and when they go out of tolerance the report the error as Drum Low

It is telling you that the drum is on its last legs before it stops printing

Make sure that the Drum Kit is a complete unit with cleaning blade etc and follow any instructions such as wiping the drum with a bit of the toner powder before it turns.

This acts as a lubricant and stops the cleaning blade from digging into the drum surface when the machine first rotates

I had this same problem however I was using the Magecolor 7450. I was trying to print a C5 postcard and the right hand side of the document was getting cutoff (aprox 2 in). Changing my Paper-Type settings on the printer from "Postcard" to "Any" magically fixed the problem.

I hate this printer.....

What is the drum cartridge?


A drum cartridge is the rotating drum that puts the toner onto your copy's! You would need this to make copy's and after its empty, it would need replacing.

The streaks are typically a sign of a toner drum going bad, or possibly just dirty, or even caused by the toner being low, as you have mentioned it to be. 1 way I know to 'clean' the drums is to have the printer run multiple blank pages. If your software will not allow you to print blank pages, type a single character by using this little trick, hold down the ALT key, and type 2 5 5 on the number pad in a blank text document. This will allow you to print the "blank" document, I would suggest about 10 copies. This should help for a short duration, and doesn't use any toner.

Hope this helps!

pleas check transfer belt, and drum unit, probably these lines are caused by drum unit and you have to change it. also you can clean laser glass, what is under the drum unit. if both look fine you can also look at the fusing rollers.
