    I need instructions on how to change the drum cartridge. There are none with the new cartridge.

    Please hurry as the old one has expired.

    I replaced the Drum, but the print quality is still very poor.

  • ebay-ebay May 17, 2009

    I have changed the drum OK and print quality is now restored, However the machine still reports Drum Low 1% remaining. I can't find the menu that tells the machine I am (or have) changed the drum.

Turn off printer.
Open side door, remove waste toner box.
Lift blue bar (in direction of arrow) to release drum assembly.
Grip tab as shown in small image, press and pull drum assembly out of its slot.
Take NEW drum and slide back into its slot, pressing it into place over the metal guide pin.
Pull yellow tab to remove protective film from drum (discard this).
Lower blue bar to engage drum.
Replace waste toner box, close side door, turn printer back on and let it cycle to start.

That should be all there is to it.

Another option is find glass fuse on this drum unit... just change for new one (64mA/F) and you dont need to buy a new one drum unit.

Drum life low replace soon Error Message

I already answered this at some other place here - but just to make sure the word gets out there:

There is a little special (white) gear on the outer left side of the drumkit - a little bit below where the toner sits. That gear joins with toner assembly - and you can rotate it counterclockwise all the way back. This should reset the drum counter - worked for me!

I hope it also does the trick for you ;-)
