    Check the manuals instructions, sometimes you have to reset the drum replacement , be sure you replaced the drum not the toner. I am not sure if these come all in one.

Why is the drum error message on after new drum installed and won't print


Hello, you need to reset the Drum Unit life:
After changing a DR2000 drum unit in a Brother HL-2040, the printer's page count needs to be reset. This will turn off the drum warning light on the printer.
Simply open the front cover, and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Release the "GO" button and close the front cover.

Why it prints grey background


Either the toner cartridge is very close to empty or the drum unit needs to be replaced. Check your warning lights. Yellow = toner, red = drum. If no warning lights, pull out the toner/drum unit and remove the toner cartridge. Have a look at the cylinder in the drum (DR2125) - if it is very black and matt looking you will need to have it cleaned or just replace it.

How to replace a R1 drum cartridge on a xerox 7545?


The entire 57 series from Xerox is one of the friendliest units for operators there are on today's market. To replace the drum module you simply need to unlock and drop the tray which is attached to it below the drum unit, then swing the locking arm to the unlock position and remove the old drum. All the drum replacement kits come with an instructional showing you how to remove the shipping material from the new drum and then simply replace drum into the copier and return locking arm and relock the lower tray to bottom of drum frame and shut the door. It's that easy.

ONE THING TO KEEP IN MIND: NEVER, and I mean NEVER touch your fingers or hands to the drum surface. The natural oils in your skin can cause damage to the drum surface. Be very careful when installing the drum to ensure that nothing touches the actual drum surface.

SECOND WARNING: Drums are LIGHT SENSITIVE! NEVER leave a drum exposed to office light or any other light source for more than 5 minutes. If you need to stop your replacement procedure, make sure you cover the drum with a dark black garbage bag or some other source that can completely stop the light from reaching the drum.

Drum light is on


This usually means that you need to replace the drum on the printer. Most likely it's under 10%, because that's when the warning light comes on. Depending on the printer, you may have 50-150 pages before it completely fails. I would advise to get it replaced soon.

Reminder: A drum is NOT the toner. It's normally a device that may house the toner. Or a separate part.

The attention light is staying on. Drum Life warning came on. All drums replaced. Attention light and drum life warning still on.


When replacing drums you have to have the printer off first, so the drums will reset. The best way to do this is to contact Rich @ www.summitechnologies.com; ricardop@uninetimaging.com you can get the fuses cheap, and you will have to take apart the drums and replace the fuse, expect an hour or two to do this.

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.

Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing


Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J
