With the drum facing you, there's a green tab on the drum away from you. Slide it left & right several times to remove dust on the corona wire.

With the front cover still open, you should press Clear ("Replace Drum?" should appear on the display), and then 1 for Yes. Wait for "Accepted" message and close cover.
It may be necessary to remove the drum unit and put it back in, and then, with the cover open, do the a/m procedure.

Vertical Lines through incoming faxes and copies.


Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines
on the faxes you receive. Either your FAX/MFC's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or
the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire (see pages 13-18), or ask
the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is
with the sending machine.
Cleaning the Drum Unit
We recommend you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of
disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1 Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2 Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab
from right to left several times.
3 Return the tab to the Home
position (  ) before
reinstalling the drum unit.

2. Return the tab and snap it into the Home position, (Caution: If the tab is not at the Home position, printed pages may have vertical stripes).
3. Reinstall the drum unit into the machine.
4. Close the front cover.
5. Plug in the power cord first, and then plug in the telephone cord.
or ask the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is with the sending machine.
Try receiving from another fax machine.

The fax machine is saying remove the drum there is dust on the corona wire.


Use the corona cleaning wire to clean the dust off. Open the front cover. Remove the drum/toner unit. look on the right side of the drum portion above the toner unit for a plastic tab with a triangle arrow that points to the left. Slide this tab back and forth several times. Move the tab back to the right. Reinstall the drum/toner unit. Close the front cover.

Clean the corona wire in this manner every time you change the toner/drum.

Fax machine has a message that says "open front cover to remove the drum. Clean the corona wire located on the drum."


The fax machine instruction must be done to erase the
message. The corona wire located on the drum needs to be cleaned.

Just replaced toner - now it prints so dark I can't even read the fax


Most common cause is a dirty corona wire and or drum. If after cleaning the corona wire and drum the copies are still mostly black and smeared, the drum may be broken.

No you're ok. This machine uses the DR 400 drum. What has probably happened is 1 of 2 things. Either the charge corona wire is dirty or at worst is broken and missing. You can't see the wire itself as it's too fine. What you can see is the cleaning felt which is attached to a blue plastic slider located on the underside of the drum unit. Remove the drum and toner from the machine, locate the corona wire cleaner and slide it across the machine 2 or 3 times, remembering to re-locate in it's starting position afterward. Now if this doesn't work. Then I'm afraid you will have to replace the drum.
