When you open the door where the toner cartridge goes, there is a unit attached to the toner cartridge called the drum. When you pull them out, on the edge of the drum that goes into the machine first, there should be a small blue tab with an arrow on it either on the right or left side of the drum, and there is a small wire leading out from under it. This is the corona wire. Dislodge the blue tab and slide it back and forth along the wire, then return it to the side from which it came, the arrows should line up.

How to clean the drum wire


with the drum facing you, there's a green tab on the drum away from you. Slide it left & right several times to remove dust on the corona wire.

Vertical Lines through incoming faxes and copies.


Sometimes you may see vertical streaks/black lines
on the faxes you receive. Either your FAX/MFC's
primary corona wire for printing may be dirty, or
the sending party's fax scanner may be dirty. Clean
your primary corona wire (see pages 13-18), or ask
the sender to make a copy to see if the problem is
with the sending machine.
Cleaning the Drum Unit
We recommend you place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of
disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
1 Carefully turn the drum unit upside down.
2 Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab
from right to left several times.
3 Return the tab to the Home
position (  ) before
reinstalling the drum unit.

The fax machine is saying remove the drum there is dust on the corona wire.


Use the corona cleaning wire to clean the dust off. Open the front cover. Remove the drum/toner unit. look on the right side of the drum portion above the toner unit for a plastic tab with a triangle arrow that points to the left. Slide this tab back and forth several times. Move the tab back to the right. Reinstall the drum/toner unit. Close the front cover.

Clean the corona wire in this manner every time you change the toner/drum.

Copies are black and where is this corona wire? I


Your cartridge has two sections, the drum and the toner section. The corona wire is on the drum section. There should be a blue tab on the top left hand side of your drum unit. Slide this tab across the cartridge one or two times, returning the tab to its original position. There should be an arrow on the blue tab that will match up with an arrow on the drum unit when the tab is in its resting position. Performing this action cleans the corona wire inside the cartridge. If this doesn't fix it you may need to purchase a new drum unit.

Fax machine has a message that says "open front cover to remove the drum. Clean the corona wire located on the drum."


The fax machine instruction must be done to erase the
message. The corona wire located on the drum needs to be cleaned.

Just replaced toner - now it prints so dark I can't even read the fax


Most common cause is a dirty corona wire and or drum. If after cleaning the corona wire and drum the copies are still mostly black and smeared, the drum may be broken.
