Model 600. Why is it dropping toner near transfer corona unit?

When is the last time the developer and drum where replaced? When the last time was a PM done? Very 250,000 copies a PM must be done? Which replaces the Corona Wires, Developer, Drum, Corona Grid, Web roller for fuser (Hot Part). Also during the PM the Tech should clean the toner out of the Waste Toner collection unit on the image unit. also clean the area around the drum and developer roller.

Why does the drum need changing

The drum is where the images are created, a good drum means good printing quality, is sensitive to light, do not expose to sunlight directly and also expose to the light as less as you can. Other Brands of printers has the drum in the cartridges, every time that you replace the cartridge actually you are replacing the drum, but usually the drum last longer than the toner, Brother allows user to change drum when its need it, for example this drum last about 17,000 pages if you are not concern about quality you can reset the drum and keep using until the quality is not enough for you.

MY HP LaserJet 2840 has a brand new Toner cartridge. Now it won't print at all and we are getting a "OPC at end of life" prompt. What does this mean?

Imaging drum reach 20,000 (black only) or 5,000 (color), replace the image drum.

Supplies life
The life of the imaging drum depends on the number of black-only or color pages that print jobs
require. Imaging-drum life is also affected each time the device calibrates because calibrating causes the imaging drum to rotate. Imaging-drum life is measured in terms of number of rotations rather than number of pages printed.
The type and length of print jobs also affects drum life. A series of short print jobs uses more drum
life than an equivalent number of pages printed in a single large job. To extend drum life, print
multiple copies of a print job at one time rather than sending the same job to the device multiple times.
The life of a print cartridge depends on the amount of toner that print jobs require. When printing text at 5% coverage, black print cartridges last an average of 5,000 pages and cyan, magenta, and
yellow print cartridges last an average of 2,000 pages. High-capacity cyan, magenta, and yellow print cartridges last an average of 4,000 pages. (A typical business letter has 5% coverage.)

I don't think you need another drum. The drum should last a long time. Sounds more like you have a short in the light switch.
This sounds like some cars that the check engine light always goes on for no reason.

I get vertical lines in the center of the paper when making copies

Most likely the drum unit. You can run a test for this by making 10 copies of something. Then compare the last copy out with the first copy out. If the lines down the center are worse/much worse on the last copy than they are on the first copy then the problem is 99% sure to be the drum unit. Now if the the drum is in good enough shape you can save a bunch of money by having the drum unit cleaned and a new drum cleaning blade installed. This is the case in most instances. Sometimes you may have to replace the drum unit as a whole.
Drum cleaning blades are $25 or less. The whole unit is in the hundreds of dollars.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Heating works but drum doesnt turn.

Try turning drum, or remove top from dryer to confirm if belt has gone. When turning drum there should be some resistance as the belt fits around the drum

How could improve the laser printers (hp1020)drum's life ?

Generally speaking the lower coverage you print the longer the drum will last because it is not discharging and charging the entire thing the all of the time.
However, this gain may be negligible because it also depends on the quality of paper used and the drum type. For instance OPC drums last a short time compared to a-Si drums. So there are small things you can do but if you can't change what you run you are about stuck with that drum life.
Keep in mind that some sites may tout that their drums last longer but always take non OEM specs with a grain of salt.

Print quality

Ghosting can :
1-prints on the fuser roller, check if yes try cleaning it off, wait until it cools off

2-blanking lamps dirty or not working,(deletes image off the drum, before it gets ready to accept a new one)

BL mirror-(new image)
\ /

3-Bad drum (although I doubt it this far in the process.)
