Question about Brother DCP-7020 All-In-One Laser Printer
Since I had been getting "Toner Low" messages when the display told me to "Replace the Drum." Fortunately, I had a new drum on hand. Therefore, I put a new toner cartridge in the drum housing and installed them.
I then got the "Dust on Drum" message. As instructed, I removed the assembly and "cleaned the toner wire," several times, without cancelling the "Dust on Drum" message. I then went to a back-up printer. For several days, I repeated the toner wire routine, without success. Thinking that the new toner cartridge might somehow cause the fault, I put the old one in, but no change.
I then put the OLD drum and new cartridge in, and the DCP7020 proceded to print the cue of stored documents. So I'm limping along with the "old" drum. (Copies look fine!) and keeping my fingers crossed.
Unfortunately, I've had the replacement drum long enough that I can't recall who the supplier was (I think it was Tiger Direct), so swapping with them is not an option.
Dust on drum refers to as you correctly stated the wire, it carries a electric charge that transfers the image. If the wire gets contaminated the electricity dont flow right so dust on drum is desplayed, you drum cart is faulty, they are not repairable items, go buy another then claim new/old one as faulty from them. Um aH.
