The drum is the part of the unit that actually does the transfer of the toner onto the paper. Each toner cartridge does about 2,000 pages and the drum needs to be replaced with the ~6th toner cartridge change (varies with use). Order part DR-250 from Brother or any office supply place that would carry the part.
To replace (wait until print quality decreases or it reads change drum now and stops working). Turn off the unit and let it cool. Close the document tray and the extension and open the top cover. Remove the drum carefully and place it where the toner will not spill. Remove the toner cartridge (if it is still good) and set it aside to put in the new drum. Wrap the old cartridge up and dispose of properly (not in the domestic trash). Keep the new drum out of the light (keep it sealed until needed) as much as possible. Insert the toner cartridge in the new drum. Then insert the unit into the Fax machine. (Hold by the handles) Close the top cover and the starter sheet should be ejected by the machine.
You've most likely got a dirty corona wire and/or drum. The wire should be cleaned each time you change the toner as well as if/when the print quality starts to degrage. Remove the toner cartridge, give the corona wire several swipes with the tab and make sure the tab is put back securely in place. If cleaning the wire doesn't fix your problem, go ahead and clean the drum. Either one of these or both should solve your issue. Only other thing that could cause your error would be the toner cartridge is not securely in place. (shouild click in securely). Best of luck.
The toner has a fuse in it. When you replace the toner the fuse blows and resets the toner counter/light. Sometimes it blows and fails to reset. If you can solider you can replace the fuse and try again. Otherwise you will have to exchange the toner cartridge for a new one.
Ignoring the Toner Empty Message
When the toner cartridge is empty, the machine shows a “Toner Empty”
message and stops printing.
You can set the machine to ignore the message when it displays and to
continue printing the pages.
1 Press Menu until “Machine Setup” appears on the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until “Ignore Toner” appears on the
bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the Scroll button ( or ) to select “On” or “Off.”
Select “On” to ignore the Toner Empty message.
Select “Off” to stop printing when the message appears. This is the
4 Press Enter to save the selection.
I believe you are talking about the toner modual.
if you need to change the toner modual, you will need to tell the machine a new one is put in the machine.
Insert the card after you insert the toner modual.
The machine should prompt you that the modual has been installed.

Printhead is dried up and may need to be replaced. The printhead usually has a life kinda like the inks. You should be able to find a printhead from your local fax repair shop and installation should be simple. Once replaced you may install inks and run several cleaning cycles. Please let me know if this helped.
Hi there you might have a faulty toner cartridge is it a original or has it been refilled? I suggest to install a new toner cartridge and hopefully that will cure the fault. If this dosen't there maybe a small piece of paper stuck in the cartridge or after the toner cartridge within the heat section open the back of the machine (the jam door) and check there is no paper.
If the printed document is getting stuck just after the toner cartridge it will most likely to be the heat section will need replacing.
