After approx. 25000 pages you should replace drum unit

This message would appear if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

This message would continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum.
To reset the drum counter, follow the instructions below:

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Press the Clear/Back key.
  3. Press 1 to reset.
  4. Close the front cover, pressing firmly on each side until they click into place.

My brother DCP 7055 shows eror replace toner


Some Brother laser printers have separate consumables - the toner cartridge and the drum unit. From time to time you may need to replace only the drum unit and not the toner cartridge.

The error LED lights up, or an error message shows on a flat screen panel, when the drum unit is near the end of its working life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

When printing on my DCP-8080DN, I am getting a thick black line


Try this:
Clean the inside of the machine and the corona wire in the drum. If this does not solve your issue, replace the drum. Also, the paper tray ground terminal in the machine body may be dirty.Clean the contact with a dry cloth.

I changed the toner and I still have a message that says "drum near end" what does this mean?


It means that your drum unit will need to be replaced soon. The drum unit is the assembly that you inserted your new toner cartridge into. They last about 3 to 4 times as lond as a toner cartridge on average.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I have a brothers copier DCP 8060 and it has a message in the lcd window stating drum near end. What is this...is this is different than the toner cartridge?


The drum unit will wear out and need replacing. The toner cartridge clips into the Drum Unit.
If you print out the system setting report, it usually shows a bar graph with drum life indicated as a percentage.

"drum near end". What is this? is it easy to fix? how do you fix?


There are two main parts in a laser printer: the toner cartridge and the image drum. Most people are familiar with the toner cartridge, but sometimes the drum is an unknown until you start seeing error messages or streaks and blotches begin appearing on the output.

In some printers, the drum is replaced along with the toner cartridge. But yours has a separate drum, and the printer is warning you it's nearing the end of its life. Replacements are available from a number of sources online, as well as at big-box office supply stores. Genuine Brother drum units will cost over $100, and after-market brands usually range from $50 to $75.

A typical vendor and price is here (I've never purchased from this place myself, and have just used it as an example):
