CP6015 black line


Is it un even vertical line on media?.. observe which colour it is, replace the cartridge.Reason: Cartridge drum rotation is not in proper manner while image formation( jerks in rotation) result vertical line on media. Most of the cases cleaning blade causes of the malfunction, if you can shoot the problem do it or else replace the cartridge.Pl avoid to handle the drum surface with bare hands as well as don't expose the drum under the light.

Hi, I have a Workcenter XD102. It gives me a J2 error. I don't know how to fix it. Please help. Thank you very much, Charles


J2 error for Workcenter XD102 indicates a Drum Cartridge Problem sensed by the main PWB indicating that the Drum cartridge had reached its end of life. You may replace the Drum cartridge with a brand new Drum Cartridge. This should fix the problem.
If you believe that its not the Drum cartridge with or without replacing the Drum cartridge, you may try to open the printer, make a good clean and perform the below. 1. Check the PWB and Drum Cartridge Reset Circuit for any loose connection and short circuit. You may re-seat the cables and terminations and test. 2. If that didn't work you might need to get some voltage from the Drum Cartridge Reset Circuit as per below. 2a. If voltage is more than 0.5 VDC measured between PJ CN116-2 and GND then you need to replace the Drum Cartridge Reset Switch PL x.x. 2b. If voltage is less than 0.5 VDC measured between PJ CN116-2 and GND then actuate the Drum cartridge Reset Switch. Then check the voltage if its +5 VDC measured between PJ CN116-2 and GND. i. If not then replace the Drum Cartridge Reset Switch PL 5.. ii. Else it should be fine. iii. If not then replace the Main PWB, PL 7.1.

I changed the toner and I still have a message that says "drum near end" what does this mean?


It means that your drum unit will need to be replaced soon. The drum unit is the assembly that you inserted your new toner cartridge into. They last about 3 to 4 times as lond as a toner cartridge on average.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Do the reset chips really work on the cartridges of HP 2500N laserjet printer


Yes, reset chips really work on laser printer cartridges, if you have a know good source for the chips and if you know what your doing, you can't put a new chip on an old cartridge, the chip is what registeres how may prints you will get out of the cartridge if you put a new chip on an old or 1/2 empty cartridge of course it will say it's full but then try and print.It will register as a full cartridge but it can only print with the amount of toner that is actually left in the cartridge, be careful there are alot of remanufactures out there that don't put new chips on or that do but don't fill the cartridge full, or replace all the wipers and drums, they just dump some toner in and say here you go, Only buy your remanufactured cartridges from a reputable company, do your research on them first or you'll be sorry

My printer is saying my drum unit is empty. is that just the laser ink cartridge or something else?


I'm not sure of the design and implementation on Brother units but on most designs that I am aware of, the answer is yes. The imaging drum is contained within the print cartridge.

Normally I would expect that you run out of toner long before the end of life on the drum. Sometimes people get after market or refilled cartridges to save on cost and open themselves up to situations like this.

When printer manufacturer's offer refurbished print cartridges, they are offering an "ETN" (Equivalent to new) cartridges. That means that the cartridge has be completley rebuilt. This would include replacing the drum

Third party and cartridge re fillers do not do this.

So now you are faced with either taking the print cartridge apart and replacing the drum or purchasing a new print cartridge.

I would get a factory new Brother cartridge and not waste my time on refilled or third party cartridges. They are not worth the money and have been know to cause print quality problems and void warranties on printers.

Muratec 2830 drum cartridge problem.


The drum cartridge is different from the toner cartridge. The drum has reached its life cycle and must be replaced. This is normal for any copier of that class.
The drum is not too expensive and not difficult to replace.

Hope this helps!

Replacing Drum Catridge


Hello, Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:

DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.


1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and
gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations.
3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.


When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of
a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light.
Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.


4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum
replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.

Sharp COPIERS - AR-5316


The cleaning blade is in the drum cartridge.
There is no developrer change in that product.
There are 2 cartridges.
The toner and drum.
Toner contains all you need as far as ink. And also the waste sump is on the toner cartridge.
The Drum is a self containted unit that has the cleaning blade and auger built in.
