I HAVE REPLACED TONER WITH THE CORRECT BROTHER TONER CARRTRIDGE AND THE MACHINE KEEPS TELLING ME TONER ERROR AND REINSTALL DRUM UNIT..HELP


Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset
  • MFC / DCP PRINTER SERIES

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

How do I reset drum error message


These machines need to have their drum units replaced every 12000 pages. If you have replaced it then it needs to have the machine reset. Normally the instructions are included in the box with the new drum unit but not many people read these.

  1. Open the front cover (Where you put the cartridge and drum unit in)
  2. Press the Back Button
  3. Display reads "Replace Drum 1. Yes 2. No"
  4. Press the number 1
  5. The display reads "Accepted"
  6. Close the Front Cover
If you have not replaced the drum unit and you reset the drum counter you will see a noticeable degradation of the printouts coming from the machine.

How do i reset ricoh sp 1200s drum unit


why toner life end message keep on showing on sp 1200s prints.

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.

The printer screen shows change parts and on the wlan computers connected to it says that the drum end soon and that panics me a lot as i paid a lot for this damn computer


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.
