This will solve most "Toner End Life" message problems when you know that there is toner still in the cartridge.
1. Remove the toner assembly by opening the top scanner lid, then pull(tilt) open the front panel, and pull out the toner assembly by gently grabbing the tabs and pull out with an upward motion. The toner cartridge(grey color) and the toner holder assembly (black color) will come out.
2. At the top rear of the assembly you will find a square green tab that can be slide along lengthwise of the toner. Just slide it back and forth fully several (5 to 10 times) times. I carefully blow on it as well(no spitting!) while sliding it.
3. Put the assembly back into the printer, Close the front cover, and drop the scanner cover.
4. Whala ! (usually), actually this has worked everytime for my brother and myself.

SOURCE: Pls Clean Drum

The drum is the larger plastic unit that slides out an the toner cartridge fits into it. The corona wire is the very fine wire at the front top of the drum. Just slide the little cleaning tab back and forth.

SOURCE: How do i clean the drum unit corona wire

HI
Open the front door and remove the Drum unit.

On the top of the drum unit, to one side, you should see a small blue knob, mounted into a slot. This is the Corona cleaner.
Slide it back and forth a few times, and make sure you return it to the original position.
That's it.
Put it back together and try it out.
Good luck.

Drum Error - The corona wire on the drum unit needs to be cleaned.
Clean the corona wire on the drum unit. (See Cleaning the corona wire on page 122.)

Cleaning the corona wire: If you have print quality problems, clean the
corona wire as follows:
a. Turn off the machine's power switch.
Unplug the telephone line cord first, disconnect all cables, and then unplug
the power cord from the AC power outlet.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
CAUTION: We recommend that you place the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a clean, flat surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.
To prevent damage to the machine caused by static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes shown in the illustration.
d. Clean the corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the green tab from right to left and left to right several times.
CAUTION: Be sure to return the green tab to the home position (a) (1). If you do not, printed pages may have a vertical stripe.
e. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the machine.
f. Close the front cover.
g. Plug the machine's power cord back into the AC power outlet first, and then reconnect all cables and telephone line cord. Turn on the machine's power switch.

MFC 7340 - I changed the toner cartridge, and cleaned the corona wire as instructed. When I put the drum unit back in, I get the message "Open front cover clean corona wire". I clean the corona...


The drum unit may be at it's end. There is a report you can print that will say "Drum" life at the bottom of the page. I think it's the "User Settings" or something. Though it sounds like you can't print to find this out anyway....Do you recall how many times you've changed the toner without changing the drum? Usually you can expect about 4-5 toners on every drum. Once the drum's photo sensitive coating wears off it is incapable of charging correctly to print. Might just be time for regular maintenance. panderson@cartridgeworldusa.com with questions.

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.
