The OPC drum is contained inside the toner cartridge.. just buy a new toner cartridge! OPC stands for (Organic Photo Conductor) and its part of the toner cartridge.. Buy a new cartridge HP order number is Q2612X or aftermarket
The procedure is similar to replacing the toner but instead of putting a new thing of toner inside the drum, you remove the toner and put it in the new drum. Open the front cover and pull out the drum and toner assembly. Place on newspaper or other disposable material (toner may spill). Push down the blue lever to unlock the toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge from the drum. Unpack the new drum (keep it out of the light until ready to replace the drum). Push the toner cartridge into the new drum until it locks into place; the blue lever should lift automatically. Put the assembly back in the printer. Clean the printer as recommended in the manual while it is open; this includes cleaning the corona wire before replacing the drum assembly.
After replacing the drum, reset the drum counter: with the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover and press and hold the GO button until all of the LEDs light up (about 4 seconds). Then release the GO button and close the cover. Check that the drum light is off. (The manual says you should do the reset first but I tend to avoid this in case of distractions.)
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.
Your Xerox has two cartridges - one is the drum cartridge and the other is a toner cartridge. Please check the following I've researched from your user guide:
Replacing the Drum Cartridge
The drum cartridge is a customer replaceable unit. After approximately 55,000 copies/
prints, the machine will display a warning message before the drum reaches the end of
life. Order a replacement cartridge now to insure continuous operation.
Country Part Number for the drum cartridge replacement All countries 13R589
Removing the Old Drum Cartridge 1. Pull the front cover towards you to open it. 2. Open Tray 5 (bypass tray) if necessary, and then open Cover A while lifting up
the release lever. 3. Lift up the colored lever, and slide the drum cartridge out until you can lift the
handle on top of the cartridge. 4. Hold the handle and remove the cartridge from the machine. NOTE: When replacing the drum cartridge, make sure that the new cartridge is the
correct one specified for the machine.
Recycling the Drum Cartridge
The drum cartridge is designed to be re-manufactured. To recycle used drum
cartridges, return them to Xerox in the original packaging. Return labels are included
with each new cartridge.
Inserting the New Drum Cartridge 1. Remove the new drum cartridge from the box. 2. Undo the sealing tape and carefully pull out in the direction of the arrow to
remove the black protective sheet from the cartridge. 3. Place the cartridge in position and, using the handle, slide it into the
machine until it clicks. 4. Pull out the cartridge tape completely without breaking it. 5. Push the cartridge again so that it is correctly placed. 6. Close Cover A until it latches and then close Tray 5 (bypass tray). 7. Close the front cover.
This Machine needs a copy cartridge. Replacing the toner will not clear it. The copy cartridge is the drum unit which is why the drum light is on. With the new copy cartridge a chip on the cartridge will reset the counter and clear the "CC" and the drum light. If you cant find this I can send you one. I believe on this model it is user replaceable.
Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:
DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.
1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations. 3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.
When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light. Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.
4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.
I first used the electrical tape trick and that worked for a while.
Then got the toner low message again. I then tried the *00 trick, which works as
1. lift lid and open front cover 2. press clear/back.
"Replace Drum?" will appear on the screen. 3. Press "*00" it will then read
accepted and the toner low error (End of Toner Life) should go away. 4. close
it all up and your done.
J2 is the indication that the Drum Cartridge life has elapsed. The possibly exists that the Customer has installed a New Drum Cartridge. The Customer would be directed to change their Drum Cartridge by their User Guide. This action on the part of the Customer will cause the Drum Reset Switch to actuate for a moment when the Side Door is closed. This is with the provision that the Drum Reset Circuit is working properly. That momentary actuation of the Drum Reset Switch, being actuated by the New Drum, resets the Drum Counter. Should something be faulty with either the reset mechanism on the New Drum Cartridge, or the Drum Cartridge reset Switch circuit, the Counter will not reset. Note: A new Drum Cartridge will NOT reset the Drum Counter unless the machine is holding a J2presenton the display. The first revolution of the Drum will render the Drum Cartridge used.A Used Drum Cartridge will NOT be capable of resetting a J2. Again, one revolution of a new Drum Cartridge will render it to be a used Drum .
