The printers have a counter chip on the drum which tell you to change it (good or worn) at certain page counts. (that how they make money). Ofter you can chance the counter chip if you have the savvy. These can be found on ebay for about $6 or even cheap replacement drums and toners can be found there.

I am getting error drum change soon even I change drum and toner


You will need to reset the drum counter now. With the front cover open (where the cartridge is installed) press the options button (or clear button if applicable) the press the up arrow for yes when it asks "replace drum?".

Brother DCP 7020 display reads "Drum Error" and instructs me to clean corona wire which I did. I then bought a new drum and still get the same message.


You need to reset after a new drum, open the front door and press menu or options and it will ask if it's a new drum. after that if you still have the error, you may need a new power supply PCB.

How do I reset the drum counter for my Brother DCP 7020 - I just installed a remanufactured drum, and the 'replace drum soon' warning still comes up


Look at your toner cartridge. There is a white stud that is attached to a gear. On a brand new cartridge, this white stud is in the opposite position of the one you currently have. Its been awhile since i've had my hands on one of these - just find a way to manipulate it so that it is in the opposite position again and toner count will reset.

How to resolve 'Dust on Drum' error on Brother DCP 7020?


"Drum error" is because there is dust or any thing like ink on the drum.
After I filled the toner with a other brand dry ink, I got this message.
I carefully checked the drum, I found there was some ink on the drum. So took off the toner part, washed the drum kit with the tap water. wait it dry. There is a rubber roller inside, it will take time to dry.
after the drum kit dry, I rolled the drum, there still something on the drum, I use a tissue paper cleared it.
put the toner back, insert it back to the printer. It is fixed.
