If your copies are fine just reset the drum unit counter. To reset the drum light, press the following key's in sequence and as quickly as possible (with 4 seconds for the first 4 keys)
Press "C" then the far left key (exposure mode) then the "C" key then the far left again.
So in other words C, far left, C, far left
If done correctly the display should go blank.
Then key in 24 as if you were going to make 24 copies.
Now press the "print" button
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies
Now press the print button again.
You should now be getting flashing zero's on the display.
Turn the machine off then on again and your drum light should be gone!
You can reset this counter at least once to get twice the life out of your drum unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

SOURCE: xerox 5305 copier excess toner

sounds like faulty drum cleaning blade,which is usually contained in the replacement drum module.I would be inclined to take the drum unit back where you got it (unless you replaced it with a second-hand one) 99% certain the problem is contained in that module

SOURCE: Drum Cartridge XE Series P8 part number 13R553 Printer code J2

With "J2" flashing, press:
1. "CLEAR" button
2. "AUTO" button, then again
3. "CLEAR" button
4. "AUTO" button

Do it fairly quickly. If it's done quickly enough the display goes off. When it does:
5. enter "2" and "4" (see "24" on display)
6. Press "START/COPY"
7. Press "7"
8. Press "START/COPY"
DONE

If display doesn't go off repeat steps 1 to 4 but faster, until display is off.

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!

Why it prints grey background


Either the toner cartridge is very close to empty or the drum unit needs to be replaced. Check your warning lights. Yellow = toner, red = drum. If no warning lights, pull out the toner/drum unit and remove the toner cartridge. Have a look at the cylinder in the drum (DR2125) - if it is very black and matt looking you will need to have it cleaned or just replace it.

How to replace drum?


Replacing the drum on these machines is pretty simple. Leaving the power on, open the hatch at the front and remove the toner/drum assembly inside. You may need to lift it slightly then pull toward youself firmly. The toner cartridge sits inside the drum unit. Depress the green tab on the left corner and lift the toner cartridge out. Transfer the toner cartridge to the new or rebuilt drum (DR2125), press it firmly in to place. Return the drum/toner assembly to the printer, pushing it in as far as it will go. Press and hold the red stud left hand side in line with the lights until ALL the lights are on. Then release the stud and close the front hatch. and you have replaced the drum and reset the drum page count. The machine should then have only the blue ready light on

Open the front door and pull the toner/drum cartridge out of machine. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit by pressing a lever. This will leave you an empty drum unit and a seperate toner cartridge.

Hi,
the toner crg is located in front of copier, the drum is separated from toner and it removes if you open upper cover.

If the copier ask you for toner open front cover and replace toner.

You do not have to replace drum if the copier doesnt tell you to replace.

I have a brother HL 2040 laser printer. The toner and drum light were lit, so I replaced both the drum and the toner cartridge, but the toner light remains on. I have tried everything, but the toner...


Two things I could suggest you check. First, make sure you have removed all packing from the drum and toner. Sometimes there is a plastic strip on the toner that has to be removed before installation. Also, make sure you are using a Brother brand toner. Some generic brands do not replace the chip in the cartridge and they will not work,

Replacing Drum Catridge


Hello, Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:

DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.


1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and
gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations.
3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.


When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of
a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light.
Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.


4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum
replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.
