Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer
Have not had any trouble with using 7820N until recently with messege of "dust on drum"..have taken drum out and cleaned area in question; but still is with error messege...has anyone else seen this? Does this simply mean time to buy a new drum? or any suggestions to maybe fix...I put a new toner cartridge in it today already...thanks
I had this problem too. I took out the drum and vacuum the drum with a vacuum cleaner ( no brush ) while at the same time manually rotate the drum cyclinder. It worked. After a month or two, you might have to do it again. But everytime, it solved the dust problem.

How many pages did you printed from this drum? If you used this drum over 12,000 printed pages, you should replace with a new drum.
Do you clean corona wire of drum? Take drum out of machine, clean corona wire by gently sliding the blue tab from right to left several times; then, return the blue tab and snap it into the home position (triangle sign). Install toner and drum into your machine and print test.
Good luck to you.

I unpluged the fax/printer, took the drum out. took out the toner Cleaned the drum roller with a damp cloth then dried it very well. Moved that blue tap thing of the drum back and forth a few times. put it all back together and into the machine. Turned it back on. And WOO HOO it finally worked. Thanks for all the tips.

I have had same problem. Try this. Turn off/unplug machine. Take out drum, remove cartridge. Locate the colored roller and insert clean plain paper. Rotate gear to feed paper through. Look at the junk on the paper!. Clean the corona wire by sliding the blue tab thingy as per the manual. Then replace cartridge, drum, turn on machine and hopefully - hey presto!
