Order a new drum, part number DR520, from an office supply store or Brother (http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/us/us/en/monolasermfc/mfc8460n_all/c_o/index.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc8460n_all&cao=dr ). The drum transfers the toner onto the paper and has a finite lifetime - approx. 25000 pages (1 page/job). Change the drum when the print quality decreases or the message changes to replace drum or drum end.
To replace, open the front cover and remove the drum and toner cartridge assembly (wait until the machine cools if it has been printing). Avoid the electrodes on the assembly. Hold down the lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Unpack the new drum and put the toner cartridge in the new drum (when it is locked the lever should lift automatically). Place the assembly back in the all-in-one. Do not close the front cover. Press Clear/Back on the control panel. The LCD should ask "Replace Drum?". Use the up/down arrows to select 1. Yes and hit OK. When the LCD shows "Accepted", close the cover.

I hope this helps.

I just installed a new drum and toner cartrideg last week and the error message says drum is near end. Should the toner cartride be replaced?


Hi there,

After replacing the drum and toner you may need to reset the drum life of the machine. This is how to reset the drum life:
Open the front cover where the drum and toner are located. Press the clear/back key. Lcd should show Replace Drum? Then press 1 for yes. Lcd should show accepted. Close the front cover the press stop/exit. Lcd now should show the date and time.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

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.

How do you get rid of drum near end after you have installed a new drum on a brother MFC 8860 DN?


Responsibly recycle it -- one company (Office Depot) even offers you store-credit if you take it to them for recycling.

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.

This sometimes happen when you dont use genuine cartridges/drums, you can leave it flash just let everyone know to watch for changes in print quality since you will no longer have a warning for this drum. when its near its end.
