After you replace your drum , switch on the power, open the front cover and press GO and + key together
Menu Reset Parts life will appear , choose okay for drum unit or + for next part.

Follow the below instructions to reset the drum.
After replacing the drum unit, keep the front cover open (make sure the power is on). Press and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Once the four LED's light up, close the front cover. Make sure the drum LED is off. The counter is reset!

You should be able to download a driver for your printer and operating system from here:


If you don't know whether your operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit ; Open Control Panel : click on System > Look under System type.

There is a relatively new Driver Deployment Wizard that you may also be interested in downloading.

Trust this is helpful.

Ensure that under the printer preferences the paper type you actually have is the type selected.

Go to printers under control panel, right click the printer :

Select Printer properties. Look under preferences or settings for paper size settings

Also look when you are printing from your program wether under "page setup" you have the correct paper type selected.
