The message means the imaging drum is going to need replacement soon. The imaging drum and toner cartridge are the two main parts that need replacement sometimes. In some printers the drum and toner cartridge are replaced in the same unit, but the Brother has separate parts. The drum is rated for a certain number of copies, so as it gets close you get the message. Replacement drums are available at big-box office places and online. An original Brother is in the $100-$150 range and generics around half that cost.
