Open the front of the printer by pulling on both tabs at the finger grips on both sides of the front panel. The front panel will flip down. The drum and toner cartridge comes out as a single unit. It is black plastic within gray plastic and has a handle like grip in the middle. Grasp this grip and pull the unit up and out. It feels kinda funny the first time you do it and you may feel like it will break, but it won't. Pull it up and out in a kinda circular arc. Do not touch the drum. If you ever need to replace the toner cartridge, press on the blue tap and separate the drum from the toner cartridge. You will have to replace the drum after every five toner cartridge replacements so practice doing it now. Note the tabs and slots on the sides before separating the drum and cartridge. Align the cartridge into the drum carriage and slide it in until it clicks. To replace the cartridge assembly into the printer, angle the cartridge at about 45 degrees and rotate in while pushing. It should click into place. If the front door then closes properly, you should have it in properly. Practice a few times and you should be an expert. For paper jams, there are many places to check and they may not all give warnings. First pull out the paper tray and check for and remove misfeeds. Remove the drum cartridge assembly and described here and check for and remove any paper. Open the back cover and check for and remove any paper. Open the automatic feed and check there as well as lifting the cover where the scanning surface is. Look in the rollers for the automatic feed for paper pieces. The last place almost never gives you a warning. Reach into the slot where the paper exits after being printed and grasp the whole top cover. Lift upward and it will open about 4 inches. This is a good place where small pieces of paper or even whole sheets may get stuck. Clean out any dust while you are there.

Where is the drum located in the printer?

The drum unit is attached to the toner cartridge for the DCP-7020. If you open the front cover (flips down) of the printer, you need to simply pull the drum and toner unit straight out from the printer. You should place the unit on a large drop cloth or piece of paper to ensure that the toner doesn't spill. See chapter 6, page 12 (page 52) of the User's manual for the image of the drum unit. Page 6-19 has the removal procedure. You separate the toner unit from the drum by pressing and holding a lever on the left side of the unit. Then pull the toner cartridge straight out from the drum unit. The User's manual is available from Brother's product support page. The direct link to the manual is http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000367/DCP-7020_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Back Door Open on Brother DCP-7020 printer

I opened the back panel and yanked out the piece of paper that was apparently halfway through the machine. Message dissapeared, printer warmed up and I could print again. This would appear to be a poorly designed error messaging system that wasn't properly tested.

New toner cartridge and paper jam

Does this happen when you install the old toner? Is the NEW toner an OEM or compatible? I have run into this problem before on some other Brother all in one models. There is a sensor flag located just below the toner and drum unit. Remove the toner/drum unit, check that the sensor flag will move to back and forth freely. My customer removed the toner and drum unit and threw the drum unit away, not realizing that the toner seats into the drum unit. When they placed just the toner into the printer, it read paper jam. Because the drum unit is part of the paper path, the sensor was not in the correct position.
Try re-seating the toner into the drum unit and then re-seat the entire unit into the printer. Let me know if this helps.

DCP 7020

If you are using non brother toner then that's the problem, if not it is the drum unit.
