You can buy a new drum online, or from your office supplier, or you could reset it if you want to take your chances with an old drum, it is very expensive to replace, I don't replace mine, but replace the entire printer when it stops working.

1. Open the front cover.
2. Press the Options key on the control panel.
The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".
3. Press 1 to reset the drum count.
4. Close the front cover.

CHANGE DRUM SOON


You will need to replace the drum soon. Once the drum life ends you will no longer be able to print.

The model drum you need is DR-510, It goes for anywhere between 175-250 dollars, depending where you buy.

THe light below the ink lights is on is this the drum that needs


I think your drum is faulty change it with new one.
Because the issue comes up again if the serviceman use local parts so it will happen again and again.
contact your previous printer serviceman.

Or

If you want to leave out your tension purchase a new hp toner.

Best of luck.

Error code E004


the error has nthing to do with the drum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can tell you how to change it,but it will still have the code.

You have either a blown fuser lamp or thermofuse, you should change that before the drum since you still won't be able to use it?

"Please change PC Drum" message appear on printers LCD


If your print job prints ok, ignore it. Just bear in mind you'll need a new drum soon. The drum is a light sensative roller that ink from the toner cartridge adheres to where the laser hits it. When it is no longer magnatized enough to hold the toner you'll see your print jobs start to lose that toner color. Just pull the drum out, buy a new one and put it in. Just don't expose the drum to light very long.
