I HAVE REPLACED TONER WITH THE CORRECT BROTHER TONER CARRTRIDGE AND THE MACHINE KEEPS TELLING ME TONER ERROR AND REINSTALL DRUM UNIT..HELP


Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset
  • MFC / DCP PRINTER SERIES

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

Does the 'Drum Near End' message for MFC 8460N mean to indicate the toner cartridge needs replaced?


Same with our Brother 8640N, drum near end means toner is nearly to end but sometimes even you replace bew cartridge is appears this message. TONER LIFE END message need to replace cartridge.

I changed the toner and I still have a message that says "drum near end" what does this mean?


It means that your drum unit will need to be replaced soon. The drum unit is the assembly that you inserted your new toner cartridge into. They last about 3 to 4 times as lond as a toner cartridge on average.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

How do I take off the message drum near end when its has been replace


Open the toner cartridge door. Press clear on the console. A message shold display saying "replace drum? press 1 or 2" press the corresponding number to reset the drum counter. This is a very important step when replacing the drum as it actually changes the voltage setting for the dc power regulator. If not performed, and a partially used toner cartridge is in, waste toner can be pulled out of the cartridge and can contaminate the drum unit.

Drum End Soon


You will soon need to replace the drum. Its considered a consumable just like the toner cartridges. You can purchase the drum anywhere that sells brother pruducts.

I have a brothers copier DCP 8060 and it has a message in the lcd window stating drum near end. What is this...is this is different than the toner cartridge?


The drum unit will wear out and need replacing. The toner cartridge clips into the Drum Unit.
If you print out the system setting report, it usually shows a bar graph with drum life indicated as a percentage.

Whats the difference between a DRUM and a TONER Cartridge? The toner cartridge is a cartridge holding the toner (ink). The drum does the work to transfer the ink to the paper. You will need to replace the drum every 5-6 toner cartridges you use.

"drum near end". What is this? is it easy to fix? how do you fix?


There are two main parts in a laser printer: the toner cartridge and the image drum. Most people are familiar with the toner cartridge, but sometimes the drum is an unknown until you start seeing error messages or streaks and blotches begin appearing on the output.

In some printers, the drum is replaced along with the toner cartridge. But yours has a separate drum, and the printer is warning you it's nearing the end of its life. Replacements are available from a number of sources online, as well as at big-box office supply stores. Genuine Brother drum units will cost over $100, and after-market brands usually range from $50 to $75.

A typical vendor and price is here (I've never purchased from this place myself, and have just used it as an example):
