MFC 8440 drum changed but still states to change drum soon. Faxes are only coming in after turning off/on machine. It indicates printing but nothing happens.


There were instructions with the new drum cartridge that explained how to reset the drum counter. If you still have the box and paperwork, then go through that step-by-step and reset the counter. The machine still thinks that it has the old drum. After a certain amount of copies or prints, the machine will save itself by turning off the printer or copy functions.

Continue to get a message to change drum soon. Changed drum already. Print quality is still not good.


hi

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 listed below.

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Press the Options key on the control panel.
    The display will show "REPLACE DRUM - 1.YES 2.NO".
  3. Press 1 to reset the drum count.
  4. Close the front cover.

Our fax machine says "change drum soon" even though we changed it yesterday. What is causing this? Thanks


When you installed the new drum, there is a sheet in the box that tells you how to reset the drum life counter. Did you perform this procedure when you installed the drum?
If you don't have it just open the front cover and press options then select 1 for drum replacement.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Intellifax 4750e, prompted us to change the drum soon. We did change the drum but it is still telling us to change drum soon.


We went to Brother website and obtained a manual and we were forgetting to reset the counter. Once the counter was reset, the message went away.

IntelliFAX 4750 Toner Empty


Hi, have you changed the drum anytime soon? If so did you clear the message before installing the new drum? The only other option would be to try a diffrent toner. There is not toner reset counter like there is for the drum! So I would reset the drum counter and see what happens. Good Luck
