In the display is the text "drum end " is there a problem with my printer


No. It is common that the drum will reach the end of life at some point. You MIGHT (I dont know if you can for this model or not. I can not find any documents stating that you could or could not) be able to clean the drum. I suggest to contact Konica Minolta if that is possible. If not you will have to purchase a new drum that will work for your model.

I have provided a link below to the supplies for your model from the manufacture.

A user has to keep pressing the button to keep it printing and screen states DRUM LIFE ENDS SOON. . She just had a new Drum installed


Just do this to reset the drum life counter since you just install a new one. Ive had this issue with multiple brothers around here on multiple parts ie.... drum, belt, toners.

  1. Press the or - button to choose "Machine Info".
  2. Press OK to proceed to the next menu level, and then press the or - button to choose
    "Reset Parts Life".
  3. Press OK, and then press the button to choose ("Reset Drum").
  4. Press OK two times.

Drum life near end


Depends on the usage of the machine. If hardly used, you should get a years worth. But here's what you can do:

Open front cover

Remove drum unit and toner cartridge assembly

Put drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in machine, but do no close front cover.

Press Clear/Back
You will get a message "Replace Drum?"
Select Yes to confirm

I have a brothers copier DCP 8060 and it has a message in the lcd window stating drum near end. What is this...is this is different than the toner cartridge?


The drum unit will wear out and need replacing. The toner cartridge clips into the Drum Unit.
If you print out the system setting report, it usually shows a bar graph with drum life indicated as a percentage.

Toner life end


Try this:

Open the cover, leaving everything inside. Press Options, then *00 to reset the fax.

If that doesn't work:

Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and drum. Turn off the fax. On the right-hand side of the cartridge, there is a round hole that is covered with a clear plastic or glass. Cover that hole up with tape, put the cartridge back in the drum, and put them back into the fax, and turn it back on.
