Yes, you can obtain a drum and install it yourself. You can find either a Brother brand drum or order aftermarket drums from other places. A Drum is good for 25,000 pages, and a catridge is good for about 7000 pages, depending on whether it is high-yield or not.

The drum must be replaced after printing 25,000 pages. So refer to the manual, order one or go purchase one in the store and you can replace it yourself.

Sure you can. Refer to your owner´s manual, buy the drum (probably will need to change the tonner cartridge too) and replace them.

Data mb-460 drum life


Yes,

That message indicates the drum is getting close to the end of life. The printer shows the message a bit before the end of life on the drum so you have time to order one before it goes out completely. You can get them from your office supply dealer or from Amazon.com

    3. Press 1 to reset.
    4. Close the front cover, pressing firmly on each side until they click into place.

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.

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

"drum near end". What is this? is it easy to fix? how do you fix?


There are two main parts in a laser printer: the toner cartridge and the image drum. Most people are familiar with the toner cartridge, but sometimes the drum is an unknown until you start seeing error messages or streaks and blotches begin appearing on the output.

In some printers, the drum is replaced along with the toner cartridge. But yours has a separate drum, and the printer is warning you it's nearing the end of its life. Replacements are available from a number of sources online, as well as at big-box office supply stores. Genuine Brother drum units will cost over $100, and after-market brands usually range from $50 to $75.

A typical vendor and price is here (I've never purchased from this place myself, and have just used it as an example):

MFC-8460N Drum Changed - cannot clear DRUM NEAR END message


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.
