Hi,

For the Oki C3200 with No LCD, the replacement or addition of a fuse 422 012 or 422 006 to the drum unit will reset the drum life to 100%. Fuse is available from RS Online or www.rsaustralia.com

I used the 422012 yesterday and it worked perfectly on my Oki C3200 with no LCD.

You will need to remove the toner cartridge from the top of the drum (do this over newspaper). From the top of the drum unit where the cartrdige was, remove the left and right screws. Gently clip off the top unit, exposing the toner powder. There is another screw on the right which you may or may not have to undo. On the side of the drum unit where the blue lever would be, you should be able to see two copper pieces. The fuse will need to slot into the copper pieces to create a circuit between the two pieces. You don't need to solder, just push the wire ends of the fuse into the slots on the copper sqaures. Reassemble and place back in the machine. Once the machine completes its warm up and initialises, the fuse should blow and the drum counter will be reset to 100 or 99%.

The following website has a picture showing this http://printerdoctor.com/okidrumkit.htm BUT YOU DO NOT NEED TO to disassemble to this point to change the fuse. If you do it becomes messy and difficult to fully reassemble the unit to working order. I have only provided this link so you can easily locate where the fuse has to go.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I just installed a new drum and toner cartrideg last week and the error message says drum is near end. Should the toner cartride be replaced?


Hi there,

After replacing the drum and toner you may need to reset the drum life of the machine. This is how to reset the drum life:
Open the front cover where the drum and toner are located. Press the clear/back key. Lcd should show Replace Drum? Then press 1 for yes. Lcd should show accepted. Close the front cover the press stop/exit. Lcd now should show the date and time.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

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

What is the Drum?


The drum is a selenium coated sort of roller that has the image of your copy document tranfered onto it. As it rotates this image is tranfered to your new copy paper. It then is demagnetised and the toner returns to the toner catcher. The drum coating has a finite life and the mesaage is telling you that its life is near its end and a new drum or new machine will be required soon.

When I replaced the drum I know get a 540 sensor toner error


Get another toner to fit to your new drum, what happens is the toner sits on the drum, and when you lock it on the drum it dumos as much powder from the toner container on top into the drum as it can. If the top unit runs entirly out of toner it will throw the sensor error, if you look at the drum you took out you will see it has the toner in it, so if you even just a put a new one in before you fitted the drum, you will need to fit another..

You can check if this is the issue by looking at the level of powder in drum unit, it should be up to the brim of foam edged slot not below it...then feel your toner if the top cart is empty then thats your issue ..fit another toner

There are other things but this is the most likly and I have given you a test to verify if this is your issue or not.. hope this helps oh and its a good idea not to change toner near drum life ends...or if you dont mind a little mess, before changing drum, invert your old one with toner still on top, while you are holding upside down , keep a firm pressure between both units and unlock the toner, turn upright and you now should have an near emppty old drum and the toner locked back in the toner cartridge ready to transfer its load to the new drum, rather than the expensive stuff heading for the bin......must be money in selling the stuff they want you to waste it....what a planet..cheers.

Brother MFC 8860DN Toner End Life Error


Open the door where the toner goes. Press the 'back' button. Press *00. Do not respond to the query about the drum. Close the door. Other models may have to press the 'Options' button located near 'Copy'. This should work.

Toner life ends


There are two units in the machine, a toner cartridge and a drum unit. The toner clips into the drum and then is inserted in the machine. If you changed the toner and you still get this message, you may have a bad or damaged toner detection sensor.
