Did you recently replace the drum and the warning is unexpected?

Why does the message "Drum End Soon" continue to appear on the LCD after I replaced the drum?
Description:
This message would continue to appear if the drum unit counter was not reset when you installed a new drum.

To reset the drum unit counter, follow the instructions below:

  1. Press Menu on the Control Panel.
  2. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to select Machine Info..
  3. Press OK.
  4. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to select Reset Menu.
  5. Press OK.
  6. Press the Up or Down Arrow key to select Drum.
  7. Press OK.
  8. Press 1 to reset the drum unit counter.
You can use this procedure to reset a drum in order to continue to use up the remaining 'life' of the drum; recognizing that you will need to replace the drum when you start having print quality issues.

What does a belt life ends soon mean, on a brother MFC 9440ch color laser printer?


Are you sure of the error message? The Brother printers that I have used have Drum Ends Soon and Change Belt messages.

The Brother MFC-9440CN has a belt that can be replaced. The Belt unit has an life expectancy of ~50000 pages. The belt unit is part BU100CL and costs a bit over $150 at office supply stores. Amazon.com and some other stores have the unit for under $100. http://www.amazon.com/Brother-BU-100CL-HL-4040CN-HL-4070CDW-Series/dp/B000SC245E is one source.

When the unit says Change Belt Unit, follow the directions from the manual's maintenance section to replace the belt unit. See page 178 (page 189 of the PDF) http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002252/mfc9440_usa_usr_b.pdf . You have to remove the Drum and then the Belt Unit. Then slide in the new Belt Unit and replace the Drum unit. Then close the printer and turn it on. Finally reset the counter from the Machine Info sub menu (press Menu 8 4 and select the Belt Unit and press OK. Then press 1 followed by Stop/Exit).

If you mean the Drum Unit, that is part DR-110CL and costs over $175 at the office supply stores. Order this part when the Drum End Soon message appears and replace it if the print quality deteriorates (or when you have the new drum). The Drum Life is ~17000 pages. The steps start on page 166 (182 of the PDF). You need to remove the old Drum unit. Then remove the toner cartridges from the drum. Prepare the new Drum Unit, including putting the cartridges in the new Drum. Then replace the Drum unit and reset the counter.

I hope this helps.

It say drum end soon and i dont know what this means as i put a new ink cartridge in it and it still keeps coming up the same.


Your unit obviously has a separate drum and toner.
Changing the toner, doesn't change the drum.
You will need to change the drum soon.

Replace New Drum - select "Yes"
after the screen will show "accepted"
close the front cover and you are good to go

Printer says "drum end soon". I don't even know


The drum is the part of the printer that the image of what you want to print is stored on by a laser drawing on that drum. That drum is then charged with an electrostatic shock that will draw up toner particles from your toner tray that will eventually be transferred to a piece of paper that will be heated to fuse the ink particles on the paper. That drum is photo sensitive and eventually looses its ability to be charged. You will then have to replace that drum.

Drum End Soon


You will soon need to replace the drum. Its considered a consumable just like the toner cartridges. You can purchase the drum anywhere that sells brother pruducts.
