The drum and toner are all in one cartridge on that product.
You can shake it and see if that will help. But even at that its low and will need replaced soon. Price looks to be about $66.

Pl advice our printer problem, we had refill tonner but print is coming light, and their is problem in chip


Depending on make and model ( which you did not mention)...some cartridges are one piece..meaning toner and drum are all in the one cartridge...so refilling the Toner only gets half the job done as the drum portion of the cartridge is still used. Even if it is a 2 piece system where the toner is one cartridge and the drum is another cartridge ...most new machines these days have the cartridges either "chiped" or "fused"...meaning that the machine will know if you did not put in a "NEW" cartridge and therefore may not work properly.

The scree reads change drum soon. what does it mean


The drum is the part of the unit that actually does the transfer of the toner onto the paper. Each toner cartridge does about 2,000 pages and the drum needs to be replaced with the ~6th toner cartridge change (varies with use). Order part DR-250 from Brother or any office supply place that would carry the part.

To replace (wait until print quality decreases or it reads change drum now and stops working). Turn off the unit and let it cool. Close the document tray and the extension and open the top cover. Remove the drum carefully and place it where the toner will not spill. Remove the toner cartridge (if it is still good) and set it aside to put in the new drum.
Wrap the old cartridge up and dispose of properly (not in the domestic trash). Keep the new drum out of the light (keep it sealed until needed) as much as possible. Insert the toner cartridge in the new drum. Then insert the unit into the Fax machine. (Hold by the handles) Close the top cover and the starter sheet should be ejected by the machine.

I hope this helps.

Change drum


You need to go buy a Brother DR-350 drum unit cartridge. The drum unit is the thing that the toner cartridge (TN-350) clicks into. Pull out the drum/toner unit and separate the two halves. Place your TN-350 into the new DR-350 cartridge and put back in the printer.

Copies are black and where is this corona wire? I


Your cartridge has two sections, the drum and the toner section. The corona wire is on the drum section. There should be a blue tab on the top left hand side of your drum unit. Slide this tab across the cartridge one or two times, returning the tab to its original position. There should be an arrow on the blue tab that will match up with an arrow on the drum unit when the tab is in its resting position. Performing this action cleans the corona wire inside the cartridge. If this doesn't fix it you may need to purchase a new drum unit.

Muratec 2830 drum cartridge problem.


The drum cartridge is different from the toner cartridge. The drum has reached its life cycle and must be replaced. This is normal for any copier of that class.
The drum is not too expensive and not difficult to replace.

Hope this helps!

Error Message Drum Life Over, Replace Drum


The "drum" referred to is the imaging drum which is replaced separately from the toner cartridge. The drum life is rated for a certain number of copies, and the printer is telling you it's time. Replacement drums are available at big-box office places and from many online sources. Just do a Google search for "kx-fl511 drum". The new drum just slides in much like the toner cartridge, so replacing it isn't difficult.

PRINTING PROBLEMS


Have you tried a New Drum Cartridge?
It sounds like the drum cartridge is bad. Do you know how old the drum cartridge is or how many copies are on it?
If you take the drum cartridge out (Do not tip this upside down or touch the drum) you should be able to see a shiny long cylinder called the drum underneat the unit. Does it look like its covered with toner?
If it is covered with toner, then the cartridge needs to be replaced and that will take care of your problem with the dark copies.
If its not covered, then it could be a dirty optics which would require for your machine to be serviced. But 99 out of 100 times its the drum cartridge.

Hope this helps.
good luck.

New cartiage/not reconized


It says there is no cartridge, or does it say that the cartridge is empty?

First, you must realize there are two cartridges. A drum and a toner. If you bought a new toner, pulled out the drum and put the new toner in, you have pulled a DOH! You can't just put the toner in. You have to take your old drum cartridge, remove the toner portion and install the new toner into your old drum and then install the entire assembly back into the machine. I hope you didn't throw your drum out thinking it was all one cartridge (I've seen it happen). This is where reading the owner's manual helps.

If not, then one of the contacts must have been damaged. Remove the cartridge and look inside the machine. See if you can find any of the metal contacts on the side of the inner chamber that is bent or damaged and try to bend it back.

Check the drum and make sure none of the contacts are damaged.

If the unit is still saying Toner Empty, try this. On the left side of the toner there will be a while lever in a semi-circular notch.

Unplug the unit, use a small screwdriver or a key to push that white lever back to the front of the notch. Put the drum and toner back into the machine and plug the power back in.
