Our fax machine has been saying replace drum for a while and faxes have been getting darker and darker we cleaned it but now we can send but not receive what is the drum?


Hi,
the drum is green roller in housing with toner, you should order the drum cartridge for your fax. With new drum you get the how to manual also. Follow the procedure.
NOTE THAT THE DRUM UNIT IS SEPARATE FROM TONER UNIT.

Hope that helps!

New drum


It is important that you replace the drum when the machine is saying "REPLACE DRUM"...NOT when it is saying "REPLACE DRUM SOON".
When the machine says "SOON" it is advising to have a drum on-hand ready for replacement. The machine will still be able to print pages. When the machine says "RPLACE DRUM" it will no longer print and a new drum cartridge must be installed to reset the indicator.

Alarm says replace drum soon. Can the message be


The "replace drum soon" indicater is a warning for you to have a new replacement drum "on-hand". Soon the display will change to "REPLACE DRUM" AT WHICH TIME THE UNIT WILL STOP PRINTING.
When the new drum cartridge is then installed...the REPLACE DRUM indicator will be reset. DO NOT replace the drum before the machine says to.

Sharp FO-4470: Error message is: "check cover or drum"


I'm assuming you already replaced the drum, and are still getting this error? Sometimes the chip in the drum that resets the counter is bad. This is esp. true if you get a reman drum. You should replace the drum and try again to see if this fixes the problem. Go back to the place you bought the new drum from and tell them the chip didn't reset the counter and if it's still under warranty they should replace it.

White space in middle of faxes sent or received


Printing irregularites on sent faxes are due to spots or a dirty scanner.
Spaces on received faxes are due to a dirty drum, corona wire, or a failing or improperly installed toner cartridge. A new cartridge should be gently shaken back and forth sideways prior to installation.
