Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Well, if the toner light is on, you're probably out of toner and the only reason it ran, was because it was low but not completely depleted.

Try new toner drum off of Ebay or Amazon for the best prices for your brother printer.

What does drum end soon mean? Status monitor for my brother MFC-944)CN printer is saying Drum end soon! the file is being sent the status says ready, the paper goes through and comes out blank!


1. replace drum unit
2. after replacing reset the counter - press "3" and "9" button at the same time in the ready state, the reset menu will appear on the LCD, select "DRUM" and press "ok"
resetting without actual drum replacement might damage your printer.

Changed drum but it is still saying 'change drum'!


On some printers after you change the drum, you have to reset the counter so the printer knows the drum has been changed. How to reset the counter is as follows:
1. press the ONLINE button to return the printer to off line status.
2. press the MENU button repeatedly until the MAINTENANCE MENU is desplayed, then press the SELECT button.
3. Press the item button until DRUM COUNT RESET is displayed.
4. Press the SELECT button and the Drum Counter is reset.

Hope this helps.
