Drum message is reset by a chip on the drum when you install a new drum. You can try pressing the cancel button when the message appears, however HP warns that damage may occur if you try to print with expired supplies.

I replaced the toner and drum and I still have the error mesage

You may not have reset the drum counter. If multi-function machine open front hatch , press clear or options button. Display should read "change drum?" then press number 1 on keypanel. Display should read "accepted" then close hatch. If the machine is printer only locate the "go" button on the front left on top of the printer. Open the front hatch and locate the stud under where the "go" button was. Press and hold the stud until all the lights are illuminated. Relase the stud and close the hatch.

Please wati mesage on power on on bizhub 164 machine

Sir/Mam Have you had the developer and drum replaced recently, or does the screen say Replace PC Drum? There are certain house chores the copier does before "Ready to Copy" it is waiting for them to get done, so that equals "Please Wait". One big item is making sure the developer and toner are properly mixed inside the image unit underneath the drum or next to it depending on the series. Might want to have the developer replaced and drum/cleaning blade normally done all together, then run the F8 procedure/Developer Charge, and make sure the counters where cleared. Did you recently replace the drum and the developer if so did you clear the counters for the drum and developer, FIRST? IF not then the copier thinks the new drum and new developer are old. The copier works on the counters that is how it knows it got a new drum and developer. Get new developer and a new drum and have it installed correctly. Counters are clear before the unit is yanked out of the machine, then you remove the image unit/drum unit replace the developer/drum and cleaning blade. (DO NOT USE A VACUUM CLEANER WHEN REPLACING THE DEVELOPER static electricity can destroy the sensor located below the developer unit. Then reinstall and RUN F8/Developer Charge. Make sure the fax line and Ethernet cable is removed can't print anything until the F8 is run. Or you will start all over again with new developer and a new drum.

My Dell is saying replace drumcart, drum full of waste toner, where is that located. Is there someplace I can look at a schematic.

On my Dell 3100cn you have to replace the drum as routine maintenance. I think it is every 12,000 sheets. If you examine the drum unit (in a 3100cn) you will find that there is a compartment in the unit that gets filled with used toner.. It is fairly small, but runs all the way across the drum unit, at the pointy end. On fhe 3100cn there is a blue arrow on either side of the drum unit to show you which way round to put the drum unit and the arrows are each printed on pastic cover held on by two screws. Undo the screws and you can empty the waste toner directly into a plastic bag.

The drum unit has a chip in it (on one side). That tells the main machine it is full or, may be, it tells the machine when it thinks it should get full. If it is the latter, then the chip won't change its tune and you will continue to get the error mesages.

Have fun

Is the massage replace the cg belt the same as the ocp message as i can't see any damage to them at all.

You are correct the 'Belt CG' is the OPC belt cartrige. The mesage advising this item needs to be replaced comes up as the result of a page counter in the printer. The mesage comes up as a result of the page counter exceeding the maximum number of pages expected from the OPC, ensuring reliable print qulaity.
The message does not indicate the OPC Belt is damage, it has reached the end of its designed life.
