    I'm currently seeing a "change drum" on the fax machine. I also have attempted to print out a fax report several times and the fax machine switches over to sleep mode.



    1. Where is the drum to change?

    2. Why wont it print a fax report

  • JuliaFertig Jul 15, 2008

    I am currently sitting here at work attempting to figure out two things with the brother IntelliFax 2820. It is flashing the "change drum" and I don't have the slightest clue where to locate this and haven't found a feasible anwser in your support area. Also, I've made several attempts to print out a fax report but the machine switches over to sleep mode as soon as I attempt this. Any help would be great! Thanks!



    Regards,

Try hitting the button "Stop/Exit" and "Change Drum Soon" will not be there anymore. It should show the current date and time.

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.

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.
