Open the front of the printer by pulling the front panel toward you and down. (where you replace the toner cartridge)
Remove the toner cartridge/drum unit assembly by pulling up and toward you.
separate the drum unit from the toner cartridge by pressing the green release tab on the side and lifting them apart.
place the toner cartridge into the new drum unit
replace back in the printer
press "clear/back" button and then press "1" to cancel "replace drum" message
close the front panel.

I have the MCF 7340. I am getting a message - End of Drum Soon. So, I bought a new drum ($120) and installed it. Now it says Drum end. and won't print. Ive turned the machine on and off several times,...

If you open the front cover of your printer where you install the toner cartridge and press the "Clear/Back" button with it open, an option comes up on your LCD Display that says "Replace Drum?" press 1 to reset it. That should fix your problem!

Just bought a Brother MFC-7340 but there is toner all over the printed pages. Is it possible the drum and/or toner supplied was damaged?

yes. that is possible. if the machine was jossled around, the toner contained in the drum unit could leak out between the connecting points of the toner and drum unit. May cleaer it self up, or may not.

Brother MCF-7340 first time toner replacement

If this model comes with the drum separately of the cartridge, only replace the cartridge. There's no need to change it every time. until prints start to get lines or dots. Don't expose the drum to light too much.
