With power on you open the front door and press and hold the stop button until the lights flash. That resets the drum count.

    On a MFC you open the front door and press either menu or options and it will ask if it's a new drum, press 1 for yes. Sorry I gave you the method for the HL-2040 which is different.

Printer says Drum Error


Then the drum (which the toner sets in) most likely needs to be replaced, if you have not replaced it recently. They are only good for so many copies and wear out. Should be DR-360.

What does a belt life ends soon mean, on a brother MFC 9440ch color laser printer?


Are you sure of the error message? The Brother printers that I have used have Drum Ends Soon and Change Belt messages.

The Brother MFC-9440CN has a belt that can be replaced. The Belt unit has an life expectancy of ~50000 pages. The belt unit is part BU100CL and costs a bit over $150 at office supply stores. Amazon.com and some other stores have the unit for under $100. http://www.amazon.com/Brother-BU-100CL-HL-4040CN-HL-4070CDW-Series/dp/B000SC245E is one source.

When the unit says Change Belt Unit, follow the directions from the manual's maintenance section to replace the belt unit. See page 178 (page 189 of the PDF) http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002252/mfc9440_usa_usr_b.pdf . You have to remove the Drum and then the Belt Unit. Then slide in the new Belt Unit and replace the Drum unit. Then close the printer and turn it on. Finally reset the counter from the Machine Info sub menu (press Menu 8 4 and select the Belt Unit and press OK. Then press 1 followed by Stop/Exit).

If you mean the Drum Unit, that is part DR-110CL and costs over $175 at the office supply stores. Order this part when the Drum End Soon message appears and replace it if the print quality deteriorates (or when you have the new drum). The Drum Life is ~17000 pages. The steps start on page 166 (182 of the PDF). You need to remove the old Drum unit. Then remove the toner cartridges from the drum. Prepare the new Drum Unit, including putting the cartridges in the new Drum. Then replace the Drum unit and reset the counter.

I hope this helps.

Error message "put the black toner cartridge back in"


I got this same error message on a newly acquired Brother DCP-7040 that I purchased used off of ebay.

As I was troubleshooting this unit (that I bought untested off of ebay - hey gambling has paid off handsomely for me many times before!), this error message kept popping up.

I checked the COUNTERS (page & Drum life) and found out that the DRUM had 0% life left. BUT, the reason it showed ZERO was because this unit did not have any drum! The toner cartridge (TN-360) needs to sit WITHIN the drum (DR-360) on this DCP-7040 unit, as well as in models DCP-7030, MFC-7340, MFC-7345C, and MFC-7440N.

So perhaps some of these "put the black toner cartridge back in" problems could be related to the DRUM (or lack thereof). A possible tipoff (since the toner cartridge actually does slide into the unit much like other units that do not use Brother's DRUM carrier) seems to be the relative ease with which the toner cartridge slides into the DCP-7040 and really doesn't seem to "lock" into position real firmly.

Drum end soon


Sounds like you need to replace the drum unit soon. Here is a new one that you can buy that is compatible with your printer: http://www.amazon.com/Brother-DR360-DR-360-Drum-Unit/dp/B001QTY5QE/ref=sr_1_9?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1305153837&sr=1-9.

Brother MCF-7340 first time toner replacement


If this model comes with the drum separately of the cartridge, only replace the cartridge. There's no need to change it every time. until prints start to get lines or dots. Don't expose the drum to light too much.

Dr 360 reset procedure


1. The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until
you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.
2. The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced
the drum.
To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
a. Open the front cover of the printer.
b. Press and hold down the white button (shown as blue in the image below) for
about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the
button.
