Open up the front tray, take the toner/drum out of the unit. there is a purple or blue tab on the right side, possibly a second one on the left. push it down, the toner will separate from the drum.

I HAVE REPLACED TONER WITH THE CORRECT BROTHER TONER CARRTRIDGE AND THE MACHINE KEEPS TELLING ME TONER ERROR AND REINSTALL DRUM UNIT..HELP


Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset
  • MFC / DCP PRINTER SERIES

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

How do I take out the drum


When you change the toner cartridges you have to take out the whole Drum and Toner unit and unclip the toner from the drum unit. The Drum when you are replacing it is the DR7000 unit. Replace this unit and clip your toner unit back onto the new drum unit and re-install it in the printer and follow the instructions that came with the replacement drum unit to reset the drum counter.

common problem.
  • The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

  1. Open the front cover of the printer.

Light print and leaves a blank stripe


Try the blue corona wire on top of the drum unit. If it is not right back to the left it will leave a line on every page.

Kyocera 1810 drum replacement


First, what kind of technical background do you have? Also when replacing the drum you should replace the drum blade. Most of the drum/blade kits do not come with padding powder anymore so you will need the padding powder also -- if you do not use the padding powder you will get drum blade jitter and trash the brand new drum!!!!

TO replace the drum you will need to remove the toner cart., 1-2 covers, the dev. unit (developer) and then the drum unit. You will then have to take the drum unit apart to remove the old drum and blade. *****NOTE***** DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM SURFACE OR THE MYLAR (RUBBER PART) OF THE BLADE WITH YOUR SKIN!!!!!! The oil from your skin will damage the drum and could damage the blade, again -- then they would be trashed.

I would spend the money to have a trainer tech. come out and replace/ rebuild your photo conductive unit for you. It would be money well spent.
