I HAVE REPLACED TONER WITH THE CORRECT BROTHER TONER CARRTRIDGE AND THE MACHINE KEEPS TELLING ME TONER ERROR AND REINSTALL DRUM UNIT..HELP


Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset
  • MFC / DCP PRINTER SERIES

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

How do I clean the drum on a brother mfc 8860dn


Follow thesesteps : 1. Open the printer and remove the toner cartridge. 2. Inspect the drum for obvious damage. If it's damaged, don't try to clean it; replace it. 3. Remove any large spots of toner on the drum with tweezers or pliers. Be careful not to scratch the surface. 4. Dip a cotton swab in a rubbing alcohol. Gently swipe any visible soil. 5. Put a couple of drops of alcohol on a soft, lint-free cloth if the entire drum looks dirty. Carefully wipe the drum. 6 Check the other parts for dirt while you have the cartridge out. Carefully clean them. 7 Reinstall the cartridge and print a couple of test pages. If the problem persists, you probably need a new drum.

Brother mfc 8860dn, what is the difference between drum and toner.


On this machine the toner cartridge is installed into the drum unit so they are separate units. After opening the front door you can lift and then pull out the toner cartridge/drum unit assembly. There is a blue release lever thet is used to release the toner cartridge from the drum unit. As far as the difference? Well the toner cartridge contains the toner, and the drum unit contains the drum as well as other parts that make up the print "process". The toner is good for about 5,000 pages while the drum unit is good for about 18,000 pages. The drum unit life indicator can be reset to get additional life from the drum unit. To do this, open the front door and leave it open. The press the clear/stop key, then press 1
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Brother MFC 8660DN "Toner Error Reinstall Drum I got a new drum, new toner and still printer isn't working and show the error reinstall drum unit please help


Pull the drum/toner out and look into the machine, at the wall on your left. There's a little plastic lever there that pivots to detect a new toner cartridge. Sometimes the lever gets sticky; wiggle it to free it up. If you feel brave enough to remove the outside cover of the machine on that side, you can put a dab of grease on the lever's pivot.
