Re: Drum for Image Runner 2200

Hi Deborah.I can tell you. Open the front cover,drop/release the transfer unit located directly below the drum.To the right of the drum is the develpment unit. Use the handle on the dev unit to cam it away from the drum. Now there is a "thumb" screw on the front of the drum unit, its almost like the knob on a gumball machine as you are gripping a slotted "knob".turn it counterclockwise and remove it (you will use it to install the new drum).Now slide the drum unit straight out toward you, noticing the rail/track the old drum is riding on along the top edges.Then follow the instructions enclosed within the box for the new drum.I will attempt to describe it in case you have bought a 3rd party drum that may not have the instructions. Obviously remove all the packing materials mindful that the "greenish/gray" roller is the drum and is fragile and is sensitive to fingerprints and such. Use common sense as you remove the pressure release blocks at the front and rear of the drum, since they will seem difficult to remove but you can do it. :-) Install the drum in the reverse order followed to remove the old one.Once installed,you will need to enter "service mode". This is done in a 3 step process. Look at the operator control pad and to the right of the display you will see a button that says "additional functions". Press additional functions>>>next press the numbers 2 and 8 AT THE SAME TIME>>> next press the additional functions button again. If done properly a new screen will appear that will have "blocks".Press "Copier". Now a new screen appears with tabs at the top. One of the tabs says "FUNCTION". Press that tab. Once again a new menu, but this time the focus is on the new tabs in the main viewing area. Find "DPC" and press it.In the lower right corner of the display you will see "OK" .Press it and you will have successfully introduced the new drum to the copier (or visa/versa) and 1 sheet of paper will exit the copier.It may look nasty but that is normal. Congrats!!!!!! You are a drum professional !! I hope I helped walk you thru this adequetely and helped you. Take care and GFL :-)

Re: Drum for Image Runner 2200

Just replaced mine 10 minutes ago.

Open front cover, drum is at the top on the left. You should find a smaller size grey knob to unsrew and release part of the drum. Next you'll want to release the blue lever on the right, shifting the toner roller to the right. You will also want to release the feed tray by pushing the green lever on the left back to the left. At this point you should be able to pull the drum free, carefully. (Grey pull grip)

When you install the new drum be sure to hold back the black bar with the spurs on it. Slide in slowly, resting on the metal guides. Replace the grey mounting screw and put levers back into position.

You should be good to go.

Image Runner 2200

Hi Willow. If you purchase a genuine drum fom Canon the instruction are in the box. If you have bought a drum from Katun that may not be the case. My email address is I can help you and its pretty easy with a little guidance from me or some one who does this stuff. Let me know if you have the benefit of the instructions as that would be best for you since it has illustrations which are far more helpful than the written word that I would provide you with. No matter what I will gladly help. ...........Spinal
