This is telling you to replace the "DRUM" of the printer. This is different from the "TONER". Normally, the drum is attached to the toner cartridge. Check your printer documentation. You may be able to purchase a drum/toner kit. Drums last longer than Toner cartridges so you will replace the Toner cartridge more often than the Drum.

That model uses a Drum unit. If you open the right cover of your machine you will see a green cylinder that will be your drum. A technician will need to replace the drum unit and developer, run the setup and clear the counters.

SOURCE: "Please change PC Drum" message appear on printers LCD

If your print job prints ok, ignore it. Just bear in mind you'll need a new drum soon. The drum is a light sensative roller that ink from the toner cartridge adheres to where the laser hits it. When it is no longer magnatized enough to hold the toner you'll see your print jobs start to lose that toner color. Just pull the drum out, buy a new one and put it in. Just don't expose the drum to light very long.
