This message means the fuser is not heating to the proper temperature. The fuser will more that likely need to be replaced. But considering cost it might be more cost effective to replace the machine.

Hi, I am getting an error message on my Brother fax 2920 saying Drum error. I have tried changing the drum unit but no luck?

Ok so changing the drum has not resolved the problem. I suspect you have a bad contact between the machine and the drum. Its been a while since i have worked on a 2920 but i remember a case of a drum problem which turned out to be a poor contact from one of the contacts on the left side of the machine. Also take another look inside where the drum sits and you will see two runners that are spring loaded. the drum rests on these and i have known the springs to jump out and the runners have become stuck. of course this allows the drum to sit incorrectly and that may cause the error.
If no joy then let me know where you are located.

Good luck

Brother fax 2920 error message displaying "rear door open" door is firmly closed , fax still showing error message ?

Look very carefully at the area, Most likly there is a sensor not being flaged. So check for any broken plastic tabs or it just my be an adjustment were a sensor was bent back or pushed out of place on a jam removal.

No manual to "Brother Super G3 336kbps IntelliFax-2920"

It is telling you the fuser unit needs replacement. Thats the heater that fuses the toner particles to the paper by heating them. If it cannot reach the correct tempurature the toner comes right off the paper.

So you will need to order a fuser wire kit to fix that error. That can be fairly expensive on a brother. I believe somewhere around $150 and up.

I can at least help you get a replacement manual. This link takes you to the downloads for your printer and you can then download the various manuals.

Brother Intellifax 2800 --message turn off and call Brother

what you want to do is unplug for a couple of minutes while checking to make sure there is paper jammed anywhere in the machine, remove all your paper from supply as well. then time how long it take to warm up or the error code comes up.
