Ok when you pull the drum out you should see a blue tab . You take that tab and slide it back and forth and this will clean the corona wire. Now when your finished make sure the tab is placed back from where you first started. I hope this helps !

The fax machine is saying remove the drum there is dust on the corona wire.

Use the corona cleaning wire to clean the dust off. Open the front cover. Remove the drum/toner unit. look on the right side of the drum portion above the toner unit for a plastic tab with a triangle arrow that points to the left. Slide this tab back and forth several times. Move the tab back to the right. Reinstall the drum/toner unit. Close the front cover.

Clean the corona wire in this manner every time you change the toner/drum.

How to get rid of the ''Dust on Drum''

The dust on the drum message will persist if the corona wire cannot be cleaned by sliding the blue tab repeatedly left to right. You'll need to replace the drum unit.

Corona wire

I was getting the clean the corona wire problem message even after repeated cleanings.  Before this problem occured the toner light was flashing warning of low toner. When I got the clean the wire pop up the toner light was on all the time indicating the toner was depleated.  So, I thought I would try replacing the toner cartridge and see what happened. I opened the new toner box and noticed on the foil packege specific instructions to clean the corona wire when installing the new toner.  I installed the new toner and cleaned the wire one more time. I then reinstalled the drum and toner assembly into the printer and the clean the corona wire message did not come up again.  The printer now works fine.

Dust on drum is an issue with the corona wire. Use the blue tab on top of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth 10+ times and this should correct your issue.

Good luck!

Dust on Drum...

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.
