Depending on what type of brother you have you will likely have to follow a procedure to reset the drum life counter in the machine. If your machine has a "go" button on it try holding that when turning on the machine until all LED's light up. When you turn it back on the drum light should not be lit anymore. If this doesn't work simply search "(your model of brother) Drum counter reset". This should give you instructions on how to reset it on your particular machine.

Why is there black dust (carbon?) on and around the electric motor? Is this a problem?

That is most likely from the belt on the drum. If you want to check that though take some of the dust and see if it is gritty feeling. you can check that by putting it on something smooth and setting something hard on top of it and moving the top object around. Or pinch it between fingers etc. The motor should be brushless because it is an AC motor.

The printer's ink pads are nearing the end of their service life. Please contact Epson support.

That means the cleaning pads are old and need replacing. Contact Epson.
I had that and it worked out cheaper to buy a new printer.

Projection lamp nearing end of life replace lamp still coming on

Along with the instructions for the lamp installation, you should have revceived instructions on how to reset the lamp counter. If not, this operation is listed in the owner's manual. If you can not locate that manual, please confirm your model number and I will post the instructions. Since the counter has not been reset, the TV will continue to show the "error" message.

Replace drum if you've tried cleaning corona wires, if no improvement fuser nearing it's life end?

Poor Print quality - black lines appear on page

If you see black lines on the drum, it is very likely that the drum unit is bad. Replace the drum unit and rest the drum counter. If you wait too long, you will cause toner build up in the fuser and will cost yourself several hundred dollars to get it replaced. More in labor than parts.

Use a soft cotton or very soft paper towel and wipe the excess toner from the drun. If there are lines worn in the surface of the drum, then replace it ASAP.
