Drum and cartridge are two different things. The cartridge is attached to the drum. They do need to either be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. You can try to clean out the connections. But many o require replacement.

It say drum end soon and i dont know what this means as i put a new ink cartridge in it and it still keeps coming up the same.


Your unit obviously has a separate drum and toner.
Changing the toner, doesn't change the drum.
You will need to change the drum soon.

Is the "change drum soon" message instructing to


This indicator is for the drum unit, not the toner cartridge. The drum unit is the assermbly that the toner cartridge is inserted into when being replaced. The drum unit is replaced about every 18,000 pages so after about 5 to 10 toners have been replaced.
Here is a picture of the drum unit.

Brother MFC 7820N Toner life end with new toner


I found the following post on another site. It appears to work. If you want to reset your Brother MFC 7820N machine so you no longer have the error message: Toner End of Life, do the following:

1. Open the front cover of the 7820N, that is, the cover that allows you to pull out the toner and drum, but don't pull out the drum/toner.
2. Push the button: Options (located on the left of the control pad).
3. Type: *00 on the keypad.

The Brother MFC 7820N should be reset and the Toner End of Life message should disappear. WARNING: This may void your warranty and ultimately damage your machine if you are reusing or refilling your cartridges, but you should already know that. Hope this helps.
