New drum

It is important that you replace the drum when the machine is saying "REPLACE DRUM"...NOT when it is saying "REPLACE DRUM SOON".
When the machine says "SOON" it is advising to have a drum on-hand ready for replacement. The machine will still be able to print pages. When the machine says "RPLACE DRUM" it will no longer print and a new drum cartridge must be installed to reset the indicator.

Alarm says replace drum soon. Can the message be

The "replace drum soon" indicater is a warning for you to have a new replacement drum "on-hand". Soon the display will change to "REPLACE DRUM" AT WHICH TIME THE UNIT WILL STOP PRINTING.
When the new drum cartridge is then installed...the REPLACE DRUM indicator will be reset. DO NOT replace the drum before the machine says to.

I replaced the drum in the fax machine and it still say i have only 14 copys left, how do i reset that? I have muratec fax MFX 1700

You are not supposed to replace the drum until it says"replace drum"
Not when it is saying "replace drum soon." have prematurely blown fuse in the cartridge so now it will not reset.
Try the following...
Press...PROGRAM,*,*,I(That is Capital I), then ENTER.(SHOULD RESET IT.)

How do you reset memory board for muratec f-320 . I am trying to get rid of an error message"Replace drum unit printer not useable". Installed new drum unit and still gives the same error message.

Before doing complete Memory clear try the following...
Press..PROGRAM,*,*,I(thats the letter I),then ENTER.
That should reset it. Only replace the new drum into the machine when the machine says "Replace Drum"...NOT when it says "replace drum soon".
As a last resort a complete memory clear is PROGRAM,*,3.....but be warned this will clear all memory back to factory defaults "except" the Life Monitor which has the counters.

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!

As far as I know there is no "manual" way of resetting this. The new drum has a small glass fuse which should blow when it is placed in a machine for the first time. It is the machine "seeing" this fuse blow that resets the message.

Are you using a "new" drum or one that has been in another machine?

You can try to fit a new fuse to the drum.

How do I reset the drum counter on a Muratec F320?

Ok, this is how I resolved it for my fax machine.
I powered down the fax, removed the new drum and reseated it.
When I powered it back on the counter reset itself as it is supposed to.

This code relates to a Drum Cartridge Problem.
Check the cartridge is installed correctly or at least try another drum cartridge.
