Just installed a new drum unit in my Brother DCP1000, and it's still reading "Replace Drum soon"

this stands for brother mfc-8440 as in the title.
you need to reset the "drum counter" of your printer..
to do so try one of those

Brother Laser Printers:

After replacing the drum unit, keep the front cover open (make sure the power is on). Press and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Once the four LED's light up, close the front cover. Make sure the drum LED is off. The counter is reset!

Brother Fax Machines:

Open the front cover. Press the CLEAR/BACK button. Press 1, when the display shows accepted.

I have a Brother MFC 8440..the paper has vertical black lines

Try changing the toner, if it's generic that's your problem, and if it's either an old brother drum or a generic you may need a new one. There is also a glass to clean, it's right above where the drum sits inside, 1/2 inch wide across the top. Wipe with a dry cloth.

Brother MFC-8440 All-In-One Laser Printer Paper jam How do I correct this? There is no paper along any pathway!!

does it ever reset by opening and closing front door? if not, there could be paper stuck in fusing area behind rear door. open and inspect. if you see no paper, pull drum unit out and locate open slot in the bottom, center of drum unit. could be a small scrap of paper in that slot.
