What is a photo conductor

The photo conductor is the round drum unit that is light sensitive. The laser in the printer writes an image of what you want to print on the drum and then the toner is applied to the drum and transferred to the paper.

Brother HL-1250 owner's manual

Three Horizontal lines indicates a 'Light Burnt Drum'. The drum units are light sensitive. If they are left in the light too long they will be affected and it will show as black horizontal bars. The number of bars really depends on the circumference of the drum some are 2 some are 3 some can be 5 etc.

Solving this you can only replace the drum unit. Check with your local remanufacturing outlet to source a replacement drum unit at a price WAY better than buying new.

Why does the drum need changing

The drum is where the images are created, a good drum means good printing quality, is sensitive to light, do not expose to sunlight directly and also expose to the light as less as you can. Other Brands of printers has the drum in the cartridges, every time that you replace the cartridge actually you are replacing the drum, but usually the drum last longer than the toner, Brother allows user to change drum when its need it, for example this drum last about 17,000 pages if you are not concern about quality you can reset the drum and keep using until the quality is not enough for you.

When hitting one drum, other drums are triggered... how do I fix that??

Usually there is a sensitivity parameter. Reduce the trigger sensitivity in the module. Refger to your user manual under "sensitivity".

E810 and/or "CHECK TONER/DRUM CRG" message on control panel.

Something is not right in the drum unit. Make sure that the drum unit and developer units are attatched together at the front and rear.
Use caution when removing, the drum is light and scratch sensitive.

If all is well there, either call a service tech or replace the drum unit

Print error

Replacing the drum should fix this issue. The PC drum, aka, photoconductive drum, is light sensitive, if it has been exposed long enough to light, it can cause this problem.
