    COMMENT: I just wanted to let Spinal know how much I appreciated the step-by-step instructions. Instructions for changing out the drum unit in our Canon Imagerunner were not included and the first thing I did was search FixYa for a solution. At almost $300 a drum, I did not want to start pulling things off of the unit without knowing what I was doing. So, I would like to say thank you, say hi, bye, thanx, you are wonderful and nothing blew up my copier. This help was just what I needed when I needed it. Thank you for taking the time to write this out clearly. Changing the drum was easy with your instructions.

Hello big doc922,
I will gladly help you. First of all, in case you need it, the part number is 7625A001AA for black>7622A001AA for yellow>7623A001AA for magenta>7624A001AAfor cyan. I am not sure which of the 4 you need. The estimated yield for the drums is rated at 40000 copies,but that is using the best case scenario. Kinda like a tire manufacturer is will tell you that there tires are good for 50,000 miles. Only under ideal coditions will you get the maximum yield. So anyway, to answer your question. Once you have the drum(drums you need) open the front cover.Now you will see the main area that the front cover...."covers" that is of course the area of the machine that gives you access to where you need to be if for example to replace the toner . The toner cartridges sit directly above the drum units.You will notice a blue handle in the center of the area you are now viewing. Rotate the handle counterclockwise, and you will be able to tell that you have disengaged a system within the copier, which in this case you have cammed the transfer belt away from the drum units.Now, above the blue handle is another lever that needs to be turned clockwise and at this point you will be able to allow that entire panel down which will expose the drum units. Simply pull the drum unit you wish to replace toward you and remove it. Remove the new replacement drum from its box and , remove the plastic. There will be some orange tape around the center of the drum cartridge which will have a package of those round clear little "B B" looking things that say do not eat,(LOL) So dont eat them! There will be a set of orange plastic pieces with loops that are just right for you to put your index finger into located at the front and rear of the drum unit.They have a slight amount of tension on the so don't worry when you feel resistance as you remove them.Once you are thru removing the packaging you should wind up with a "pull tape" left in place and a kinda gray/white plastic piece still attached to the new drum unit. The gray/white piece is used to help align the new drum unit as you install it and will be disgarded once you are done as it serves as a track/alignment tool and will stay behind as you push the drum into the machine. Once you have pushed the drum in all the way (its easier than you think so please don't worry) the plastic alignment tool will have stayed behind and you can toss it. Now hold your hand against the drum unit to keep it in place and pull the pull tape completely out.This released the toner , and was ther to minimize the possibility of you making a mess. You had already removed all the **** that shipped the drum, all orange stuff is gone, the drum is in place, and you are good to go! Close the cover that exposed the drums, turn the handle clockwise to latch the cover. Turn the blue handle counterclockwise to re-engage the rest of the guts, close the front cover and smile. :-) Now it is not necessary to do this but I believe it is a good idea. Let the machine warm up and reach the ready condition and then press additional functions< a button located to the right of the display. You will see a tab that says"adjustment and cleaning" Press it and then press "auto gradation adjustment" and perform the "plain" paper "full adjust" and follow the instructions. Again this is not required but is a good idea to perform. I think this pretty much fulfilled you request. It has been a pleasure to help you and I wish you the best. If I indeed have helped you, please take the time to to let the folks at "FIXYA" know. I am just a guy in Tennessee that after work goes to the fixya website to try to help folks just like you. I don't get paid, but I like the pat on the head I get from the folks at fixya and I genuinely like helping people. Take care. >>>>>>>>>>SPINAL<<<<<<<<<<

Can't thank you enough for the help. The manual doesn't cover this type of change. This was very helpful and I strongly urge the full adjustment at the end because my first copy (without adjusting) was deadly pale. The full adjustment fixed it!!
Thanks again!!

My printer canon ir 2022 prints faints and blank pages, what can be a problem and how to fix it?


Hello,
first You must check, if the image is on the drum. To do these, start print and when you hear that paper is in drum section open the left door and look at the drum surface for the toner image on it.
i.e.
If the image is on it and it looks solid, check the transfer roller or replace him. Also clean the laser unit ( lenses and polygon mirror ) and change the drum unit. It can also be the problem with toner station.
i.e. the cylinder doesn't turns or the there isn't toner on cylinder.

It can be a bunch of things, so without seeing the machine it is difficult to say what is the problem... but, in most cases, the problem is in dirty laser unit or in transfer roller.

Hi, I have a Canon iRC3080i printer and want to replace all of the drums on it myself. Need to know how to rotate the drums from the console once i have done the replacement and clear the count...


Hello,
the drum units isn't on the "rotary drum". To change them you need to pull out the drum holder out, which is behind the toner hoppers and beneath the transfer belt.. Its difficult to explain by the words, for installation manual send me the mail on emma.servis@gmail.com.

Says to change drum, changed drum and still says "change drum", will not print.....


After replacing the image drum cartridge, reset the drum counter to keep a correct count of the number of pages printed on the image drum.
1. Turn the printer on while holding the MENU 1/Menu 2 button. USERMNT displays in the control panel window.
2. Press MENU 1/Menu 2 three times. DRUM CNT RESET displays.
3. Press ENTER. The counter will reset and the printer will go ON-LINE.

Changing Drum


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.
