Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer

"Change Drum Soon" Message; not change when we changed the drum.

We have three of the same printer, Brother 7820N. One of them is only five months old. One of them gives us the message :Change Drum Soon." We have switched the drum with one from the new machine, and it still is giving us the same message!The drum life indicates 0%. Do I need to reset something in order for it to work properly?

Getting a message saying change belt unit...what's that? is it easy to change? Replaced Drum Unit 6 months ago and I still get message Drum Unit end soon.


The instructions to reset the drum after changing are packed with the new drum, and the belt unit is the transfer belt that also wears out and needs changing periodically. The instructions are packed with that also and not hard to change.

You need to open the front door and press the options button, or the menu button. It will ask if it's a new drum, tell it yes, shut the door and your good to go...

"Change drum soon mean" in my 7820n?


drum and cartridge are two different things. The cartridge is attached to the drum. They do need to either be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. You can try to clean out the connections. But many o require replacement.
