K image drum

Is there a difference between the K image drum and the K toner cartridge? My printer is telling me to "order K image drum". I replaced the K toner cartridge, but I am still getting the same error message.

Thank you.

The drum and toner cartridge are two separate items. You need to replace the drum.

Whats the difference between the drum and the cartridge? What is the DRUM K? Is it the black toner?


If it's a colour/color printer, you will have 4 toners and 4 drums to put the toner onto the paper, CMYK is the order of things in colour printing and you are right about the K being the black.

Get a replacement drum should be easy enough, the photoreceptor may be simply dirty if it's not had a service for a while, if you know where they are, give them a wipe with a cloth or cleaning pad with Isoproyl Alcohol rather than Lemon Pledge or water...

Drum light is on


This usually means that you need to replace the drum on the printer. Most likely it's under 10%, because that's when the warning light comes on. Depending on the printer, you may have 50-150 pages before it completely fails. I would advise to get it replaced soon.

Reminder: A drum is NOT the toner. It's normally a device that may house the toner. Or a separate part.

It tells me to replace the imaging unit i did but it still is telling me to replace the imaging unit any tips on how to resolve this?


sorry about my last reply. you have to replace the selenium DRUM, its a big drum inside the printer under the toner. It cost 150USD... kinda hate Samsung right?

you can also just take it out, shake it left to right several times and put it back and see if you still get the error.

"Pull down the front cover and you have access to the four toner cartridges, which are lined up, one above the other, inside. Unlike many recent colour laser designs, the drum unit is separate from each of these cartridges and has a different lifespan, as does the toner waste bottle, which also needs replacing periodically. "

Samsung has a chip that counts the number of prints you do. After X prints, it wil make you change the toner even if you do not need to. Also you have to replace the selenium drum and also the waste toner bin... I HATE SAMSUMG from now on... CHEATERS

Problem with Dell 1720 printer


Hello

You have to check couple things in this case.

Ensure that the printer cover is closed.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge.
  2. Firmly shake it side-to-side and front-to-back several times to redistribute the toner.
  3. Reinsert the toner cartridge, and continue printing.
Repeat this procedure multiple times until the print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge.

or
The imaging drum is approaching full and needs to be replaced. Order a new imaging drum.

What is the Drum?


The drum is a selenium coated sort of roller that has the image of your copy document tranfered onto it. As it rotates this image is tranfered to your new copy paper. It then is demagnetised and the toner returns to the toner catcher. The drum coating has a finite life and the mesaage is telling you that its life is near its end and a new drum or new machine will be required soon.

What is the difference between a toner and a drum on a BB4400 OKI printer?


The toner is the black powder which the printer uses to turn type and pictures into a printed piece. The drum is the device that actually fuses the image to the paper. Toner cartridges and drums have a service life. Toner cartridges will have say a 3000 sheet capacity. When it is empty you replace it. The drum will have a 10-20,000 sheet capacity. Typically the drum is three to four times more expensive to replace. Many companies will give you a credit for turning them in vs ending up in a landfill.
Good luck.

I have a message that says "Change PC Drum". What is that?


This is telling you to replace the "DRUM" of the printer. This is different from the "TONER". Normally, the drum is attached to the toner cartridge. Check your printer documentation. You may be able to purchase a drum/toner kit. Drums last longer than Toner cartridges so you will replace the Toner cartridge more often than the Drum.

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.
