Question about Brother MFC-7340 All-In-One Laser Printer
Brother mfc-7840N drum end soon and try reset open cover n press 1..., but display drum end soon again
My MFC-7420 began to display the message "Drum end soon" so I quickly went out and purchased a new drum. But I decided not to install it until I needed to. Because what does "drum end soon" mean? I thought it would mean that the print quality would deteriorate enough that I would notice the problem. So I continued to replace toner as needed, and pushed the blue cleaning thing down the wire regularly. This went on for over 3 years until *finally* I started having regular print job production problems. I replaced the drum, and the problems were solved. So,my advice is be prepared, but don't replace the drum until you have to -- the message means very little.

This message would appear if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.
This message would continue to appear if the clear plastic starter sheet was removed from the "new" drum before it was installed. This plastic starter sheet, resets the drum counter. To reinstall drum with the starter sheet, please follow the instructions listed below:
Locate the starter sheet. Clear plastic sheet, 9 inches long, with a cut out in the center. The sheet will have "Initialization of your new drum successfully completed. Please discard this sheet" written on it.
If you cannot locate the starter sheet, contact the Brother Customer Service or the appropriate Brother authorized dealer.

Put back the sheet in.
Remove the drum, put back the starter sheet in with the flat edge toward you.
Turn the drum left gear to get the sheet in till the plastic notch are even with the edge of the sheet.
The put back the drum in the printer unit, close the unit and printer will eject again the sheet clearing the message.
you may have to try this more then once, the sheet should be at the right place in order for the message to clearout.
You also need to clean the 1/2 inch plastic windows at the bottom of the printer prior to put back the Drum. this will allow the laser to get to the drum unit more accuratelly.
Don't use alcool, or any liquid. this could damage or scratch the clear plastic windows and thus alter the print quality.

Testimonial: "all info much appreciated"
This is an easy one. With the power on, open the front door, where you installed the drum. Press the CLEAR button. The display will ask something like, "Change Drum? Press 1 for yes. Press 2 for no."
Close the front door.
