What do I do when my Brother printer 4040cdn has the message "drum end soon"? It has ink cartridges that are not empty. When they need to be replaced there is a flashing light.


The drum is replaceable.
You can continue to use the printer but over time the print quality will degrade. At that point the only option is replacing the drum.
Brother claims the average drum life spans about 17,000 pages.
I hope this helps.

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.

A user has to keep pressing the button to keep it printing and screen states DRUM LIFE ENDS SOON. . She just had a new Drum installed


Just do this to reset the drum life counter since you just install a new one. Ive had this issue with multiple brothers around here on multiple parts ie.... drum, belt, toners.

  1. Press the or - button to choose "Machine Info".
  2. Press OK to proceed to the next menu level, and then press the or - button to choose
    "Reset Parts Life".
  3. Press OK, and then press the button to choose ("Reset Drum").
  4. Press OK two times.

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.

This message will appear if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one
