The back right of the drum has a small 20mm F80mA fuse that you need to replace to reset the drum counter.
(fuse blows to reset the drum life setting)

Just replaced drum and says "Toner Life End" but cartridge is almost brand new and high yield (I don't print that much).


Almost brand new means what???. Then replace the toner cartridge which is different then the drum unit.

Drum Life Ends soon - Brother


The problem with this is the design. Each toner cartridge has a microchip on it, that counts the pages you print. The company has determined that you get x amounts of prints. Then you have to replace it, empty or not. This printers do not work the same way as an expensive professional business copier. In an pro style there is a spent toner cartridge that collects all of the wasted toner that is on the drum. On a small business/home style this spent toner goes back into the cartridge. There is no level indicator, even on the inkjet printer. They too, have a chip that says you have x amount of prints/cleaning cycles they can go through. Look up inkjet refill kits or inkjet cartridge programmer.

I am changing the ink cartridge i put the new one in and it keeps saying End of life and it has a new cartridge what do i do


Here is the solution that will reset the count and allow your fully functional toner cartridge (the one the printer tells you is empty) to continue to work.

Open the front cover.
Press options button.
Press the start button.
Press + or up arrow button 10 times.
Press set button.

You have to do this with a long pause or the system will reset and you will have to start over.

Good luck.

[Lexmark E352dn] It says: Replace Photocon. The message will display and printing won't work. After a "period of time," it will then print everything in its queue. Then the message will show again, and the...


This is a page count function so that the PC drum is replaced at an elapsed count of pages printed. If you have changed the PC drum and the message hasnt cleared - Go into config menu (Hold down the tick & back buttons on power up) Select ''Reset PC Count'. When this is reset the replace PC message will not appear.

The toner tray will not pull out from the machine


Replacing the Toner Cartridge
The MFC can print up to 6,000 pages using a high yield toner cartridge. When
the toner cartridge is running low, the LCD shows TONER LOW. The MFC is
supplied with a standard toner cartridge that must be replaced after
approximately 3,000 pages. Actual page count will vary depending on your
average document type (i.e., standard letter, detailed graphics).
Discard the used toner cartridge according to local regulations. If you are not
sure of them, your local Sanitation Department. Be sure to seal the toner
cartridge tightly so toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge. When
discarding used toner cartridges, keep them separate from domestic garbage.
We recommend that you clean the MFC when you replace the toner cartridge.
1 Open the front cover and pull out the drum unit.
Place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of disposable paper to avoid
spilling and scattering the toner.
2 Hold down the lock lever on the right and pull the toner cartridge out of the drum
unit assembly.
Caution
Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes,
immediately wipe it off or wash it with cold water.
3 Unpack the new toner cartridge. Place the used toner cartridge into the
aluminum bag and discard it according to local regulations.
 Wait to unpack the toner cartridge until immediately before you install it in the
MFC. If a toner cartridge is left unpacked for a long period of time, the toner life
is shortened.
 You can use only a genuine Brother toner cartridge (TN-430 or TN-460), which
is specially formulated to ensure top print quality. Using another brand of toner
cartridge may void your MFC’s warranty. Warranty coverage does not apply to
problems caused by the use of 3rd party Toner, 3rd party Toner Cartridge or 3rd
party Drum unit.
4 Gently rock the toner cartidge from side
to side five or six times to distribute the
toner evenly inside the cartridge.
5 Remove the protective cover.
6 Insert the new toner cartridge in the
drum unit until it clicks into place.
7 Clean the primary corona
wire inside the drum unit by
gently sliding the blue tab
from right to left several
times. Return the blue tab to
the Home position ( )
before reinstalling the drum
unit assembly.
Reinstall the drum unit and close the
front cover.
Replacing the Drum Unit
The MFC uses a drum unit to create print images on paper. If the LCD shows
CHANGE DRUM SOON, the drum unit is near the end of its life and it is time
to purchase a new one.
Even if the LCD shows CHANGE DRUM SOON, you may be able to continue
printing without having to replace the drum unit for a while. However, if there
is a noticeable deterioration in the output print quality (even before CHANGE
DRUM SOON appears), then the drum unit should be replaced. You should
clean the MFC when you replace the drum unit. (See page 21-18.)
Caution
When removing the drum unit, handle it carefully because it contains toner. If
toner scatters and your hands or clothes get dirty, immediately wipe or wash
with cold water.
WARNING
Just after you have used the MFC, some
internal parts of the MFC are extremely
HOT! So please be careful.
The drum unit is a consumable item, and it is necessary to replace it periodically.
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as temperature,
humidity, type of paper and how much toner you use for the number of pages per print
job. The estimated drum life is up to 20,000 pages. The actual number of pages your
drum will print may be significantly less than these estimates. Because we have no
control over the many factors that determine the actual drum life, we cannot
guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be printed by your drum.

Change of toner


I have a brother mfc 7840w

I first used the electrical tape trick and that worked for a while. Then got the toner low message again. I then tried the *00 trick, which works as follows:

1. lift lid and open front cover
2. press clear/back. "Replace Drum?" will appear on the screen.
3. Press "*00" it will then read accepted and the toner low error (End of Toner Life) should go away.
4. close it all up and your done.
