Did you replace the drum or the toner cart? The drum has a blue lever that you slide back and forth around 20 times to clean the corona wire. I sometimes use a cotton swab with alcohol to gently clean this wire as well.

Why does my Brother HL 3070CW keeps saying "drum error, clean corona wire on drum". I have cleaned all the corona wires, but still getting the same message.


You have to replace your drum with a new one. It has been worn out and cannot keep the primary charge, resulting poor image quality

Brother DCP 7020 display reads "Drum Error" and instructs me to clean corona wire which I did. I then bought a new drum and still get the same message.


You need to reset after a new drum, open the front door and press menu or options and it will ask if it's a new drum. after that if you still have the error, you may need a new power supply PCB.

Newly set-up Brother color laser printer displays drum error.


The slides you are moving are for the drum units, you could try using canned air to blow in the same area that the sliders slide across, if that doesn't help you may need a new drum unit..

Drum error


Yes, you should replace the drum unit if you have not done so. You may have a broken corona wire or drum. However, keep in mind that you will need to reset your machine after changing the drum unit. If after replacing, you still get the same error, you may have a problem with your machine properly sensing your drum unit.

Corona wire


I was getting the clean the corona wire problem message even after repeated cleanings.  Before this problem occured the toner light was flashing warning of low toner. When I got the clean the wire pop up the toner light was on all the time indicating the toner was depleated.  So, I thought I would try replacing the toner cartridge and see what happened. I opened the new toner box and noticed on the foil packege specific instructions to clean the corona wire when installing the new toner.  I installed the new toner and cleaned the wire one more time. I then reinstalled the drum and toner assembly into the printer and the clean the corona wire message did not come up again.  The printer now works fine.

Pls Clean Drum


The drum is the larger plastic unit that slides out an the toner cartridge fits into it. The corona wire is the very fine wire at the front top of the drum. Just slide the little cleaning tab back and forth.
