    1) open the front door
    2) press the Clear/Back button
    3) pick Yes to Accept
    4) once the machine says Accepted, close the door.
    Reset complete, message will go away

All you should have to do is: -replace the old drum with the new replacement. -with the front door open press the Clear/Back button -press the number 1 button and when ?accepted? appears on the LCD close the front cover. That should do it. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Brother Support says that the error message can only be reset by installing a new Brother Drum. I am talking only about the Model DCP-1000. Meanwhile the machine will continue working, even with the error message, indefinitely until the print image starts to deteriorate.

SOURCE: change drum soon will not clear after new drum inserted

This machine is reset with a plastic sheet that come in the new drum unit. When the drum is inserted for the first time, the sheet slides out and trip the exit sensor in a certain way. Then the counter is cleared. If you still have this clear plastic sheet, then you can reinsert it into the top of the drum unit and try it again.

New drum

It is important that you replace the drum when the machine is saying "REPLACE DRUM"...NOT when it is saying "REPLACE DRUM SOON".
When the machine says "SOON" it is advising to have a drum on-hand ready for replacement. The machine will still be able to print pages. When the machine says "RPLACE DRUM" it will no longer print and a new drum cartridge must be installed to reset the indicator.

Alarm says replace drum soon. Can the message be

The "replace drum soon" indicater is a warning for you to have a new replacement drum "on-hand". Soon the display will change to "REPLACE DRUM" AT WHICH TIME THE UNIT WILL STOP PRINTING.
When the new drum cartridge is then installed...the REPLACE DRUM indicator will be reset. DO NOT replace the drum before the machine says to.
