The drum is where the image is applied before being transfer to the paper. If the drum is wearing down the image will become poor. Changing the drum unit will make the image like new. So, yes you can run the drum catridge until you get a poor print out.

My Brother mfc 4800 after changing the drum and toner prints so light that it is almost unusable


Return both and get a fresh batch. You could have gotten a bad drum or toner. But first take out the toner and get her a good shake just to loosen it up if there are any clumps or jams

Cannot reset the change drum soon message after replacing drum.


This message would appear if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

This message would continue to appear if the clear plastic starter sheet was removed from the "new" drum before it was installed. This plastic starter sheet, resets the drum counter. To reinstall drum with the starter sheet, please follow the instructions listed below:

Locate the starter sheet. Clear plastic sheet, 9 inches long, with a cut out in the center. The sheet will have "Initialization of your new drum successfully completed. Please discard this sheet" written on it.

If you cannot locate the starter sheet, contact the Brother Customer Service or the appropriate Brother authorized dealer.

Change drum soon will not clear after new drum inserted


This machine is reset with a plastic sheet that come in the new drum unit. When the drum is inserted for the first time, the sheet slides out and trip the exit sensor in a certain way. Then the counter is cleared. If you still have this clear plastic sheet, then you can reinsert it into the top of the drum unit and try it again.
