It means that the drum will end soon. The drum is the piece that holds the printer cartridge. It costs about 115+ dollars at the store, but on ebay, you can get it for a good 60 bucks. :)

SOURCE: 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.

Drum end soon again


My MFC-7420 began to display the message "Drum end soon" so I quickly went out and purchased a new drum. But I decided not to install it until I needed to. Because what does "drum end soon" mean? I thought it would mean that the print quality would deteriorate enough that I would notice the problem. So I continued to replace toner as needed, and pushed the blue cleaning thing down the wire regularly. This went on for over 3 years until *finally* I started having regular print job production problems. I replaced the drum, and the problems were solved. So,my advice is be prepared, but don't replace the drum until you have to -- the message means very little.

I have a Brother HL 4070CDW printer and the Dum end soon light will come on daily. What does this mean and how do I fix this problem? If you need to please call me at 412-452-5975. Thank You, Rebecca...


Hi there !

Don't worry, it does not detect any hardware failure. Drum end near means that your toner is lower and soon it will end.

If you just replaced new toner and still drum end near message comes up. Just make a hard reset of your printer by removing the cartridge and turning off the printer in 5-10 minutes. Then return the cartridge and try to print again. It will refresh the memory of the printer and the message will disappear.

I hope it helps you.

I rec'd a fax this morning w/ a 2" solid black line on the right hand column. I also noticed that the screen reads "drum end soon." Are those two things related? And, what is "drum...


print out an internal report of some kind from the control panel. if line/band is still there, then drum most likely is the problem. sometimes however, that band can originate from the sending fax. "drum end soon" means your drum has come close to the 17,000 prints it is rated for and you need to get a DR110 drum unit. the drum unit is what your 4 toners sit in.

Not sure what the following description means: Drum End Soon Then a second warning flashes: Change Belt Unit Please tell me what this means and what I can do to fix it? Thanks Management


Brother laser printers have both an imaging drum and a transfer belt that have a limited life span they must be replaced from time to time. Very similar to replacing your toner cartridge. purchase a drum and belt for your model and they will have installation instructions with them.

What does drum end soon mean? Status monitor for my brother MFC-944)CN printer is saying Drum end soon! the file is being sent the status says ready, the paper goes through and comes out blank!


1. replace drum unit
2. after replacing reset the counter - press "3" and "9" button at the same time in the ready state, the reset menu will appear on the LCD, select "DRUM" and press "ok"
resetting without actual drum replacement might damage your printer.
