The machine reset's the drumlife it self, most of the new fax/copy machines's does it.
The drum unit you change mostly once a year, 3-4 times a year it's very much. Also never open the new drum unit, until you have removed the old unit. The drum unit dosent like the sun/light, it may shorten the drum unit's life

I have this model printer (brother mfc-7840W) and i'm getting an error on the screen-it says Drum Error. See troubelshooting and maintenance chapter in the user manual


If you have the manual follow the steps for trouble shooting.
It will tell you to remove the drum, remove toner, clean corona wire and reinstall. If that does not solve the issue it will recomend replacing the drum. You can check your drum life by going to menu- press machine info, choose option 3 drum life and press ok. This will show you the remaining percentage of your drum if the number shows less than 25% replace the unit.
If it shows more than 50% you can reset the drum counter allowing the machine to read it as a new unit.( Bare in mind this will change the usage meter back to 100%, you will have to keep an eye out for print defects or light pages as this will signal the end of the drum life) to reset page counter remove the drum from the machine, with the front door open press Clear/back until the lcd displays reset drum yes? no? press 1 for yes and reinstall drum. The machine will cycle until ready; if this still has not cleared the message you will need to contact brother for a manual reset or service.
