Most all replaceable parts on MagiColor printers are literally scheduled to be replaced after a certain number of pages printed using them. Officially, this is to ensure print quality remains sufficient. Unofficially, it's just another way to **** money from your wallet.

That being said, there is likely a fuse somewhere on the OPC drum unit that, when replaced, will reset the page count for that unit. Once the page count is reset, the fuse is blown, and counting resumes.

Examine the unit for large, silver, metal contacts. The fuse will be underneath those (or very nearby). Either replace the fuse or temporarily short the contacts. If you short the contacts, turn the printer on, verify the printer "thinks" the drum unit has been replaced, turn back off, and remove the short circuit.

After replacing black toner cartridge printer displays Drum Low


The drum and the black printer cartridge are two separate items. You will have to purchase a new drum for it. I just had to do the same thing and it ran me $150.00 at Staples.

Toner Cartage


Really Magicolor 2430DL is a very worst printer in this world.
within 2 months drum cartridge finish - no other printer like this type of option - like black, color & durm cartridge.

I will recommend - not to go for the thirdclass cartridge. go for only HP.

thanks
