The message is referring to a replaceable part. You should be able to order the part and install it yourself. Good luck.

How to fix brother printer drum error troubleshooting and routine maintenance


I still receive the error message "Replace Drum", "Drum End Soon", "Drum Near End", or "Drum Stop" after I replace the drum unit with a new one. The following error messages will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit with a new one.
  • Replace Drum
  • Drum End Soon
  • Drum Near End
  • Drum Stop
To clear these error messages, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.

If you want to clear an error message related to the toner replacement, click here to see how to clear an error message after you replaced the toner cartridge.
"What is the difference between the toner cartridge and the drum unit?"

Please reset the drum counter only when you replace the drum unit. If you reset the drum counter during the life of the drum unit currently being used, the remaining drum life will not be displayed accurately.
  1. Make sure that the machine is turned on.
  2. Open the front cover.
  3. Press Clear or Clear/Back on the control panel.?
    NOTE: The layout of a control panel differs depending on the model, but the Clear or Clear/Back button is located on the right side of the LCD screen as shown in illustration.
  4. Do one of the following.

    • If your Brother machine has a numeric keypad:
      Press 1 to reset the drum counter.
    • If your Brother machine doesn't have a numeric keypad:
      Press the Up Arrow Key to reset the drum counter.
  5. When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.

This message will 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

What is the Drum?


The drum is a selenium coated sort of roller that has the image of your copy document tranfered onto it. As it rotates this image is tranfered to your new copy paper. It then is demagnetised and the toner returns to the toner catcher. The drum coating has a finite life and the mesaage is telling you that its life is near its end and a new drum or new machine will be required soon.

You can expect it to print 12,000 Page Yield
Whats the difference between a DRUM and a TONER Cartridge? The toner cartridge is a cartridge holding the toner (ink). The drum does the work to transfer the ink to the paper. You will need to replace the drum every 5-6 toner cartridges you use.

"drum near end". What is this? is it easy to fix? how do you fix?


There are two main parts in a laser printer: the toner cartridge and the image drum. Most people are familiar with the toner cartridge, but sometimes the drum is an unknown until you start seeing error messages or streaks and blotches begin appearing on the output.

In some printers, the drum is replaced along with the toner cartridge. But yours has a separate drum, and the printer is warning you it's nearing the end of its life. Replacements are available from a number of sources online, as well as at big-box office supply stores. Genuine Brother drum units will cost over $100, and after-market brands usually range from $50 to $75.

A typical vendor and price is here (I've never purchased from this place myself, and have just used it as an example):

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you've found it helpful, and thanks for asking here!
