How to get rid of the "End of Drum Life" message.

Hi,

 

My printer works fine, till now I got the "End of Drum Life" message.  I heard that we can reset it and make printer think it's a new drum.  Would you please instruct me how to do that?

 

Thanks.

 

Johnson

Pull the drum out by the green handle.
Hold it up and look for a small fuse (looks like an old car fuse)
Go to Radio Shack purchase a package of 270-1047 fuses.
4 for less that $5
Replace the fuse on the bottom of the drum.
It will register as new

Hold down the four directional buttons when you switch it on. Keep them held until the display shows maintenance mode. Look through the menu and you should see the relevant menu entry.

There is no guarantee the machine will stop reporting the drum as spent though. Easiest way to stop the message is replace the unit. Your print quality will suffer eventually.

Data mb-460 drum life


Yes,

That message indicates the drum is getting close to the end of life. The printer shows the message a bit before the end of life on the drum so you have time to order one before it goes out completely. You can get them from your office supply dealer or from Amazon.com

Depends on the usage of the machine. If hardly used, you should get a years worth. But here's what you can do:

Open front cover

Remove drum unit and toner cartridge assembly

Put drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in machine, but do no close front cover.

Press Clear/Back
You will get a message "Replace Drum?"

No. There is no reset as there is with some units. This unit actually knows via a smart chip in the drum unit if it has reached EOL ( end of life ).

The back right of the drum has a small 20mm F80mA fuse that you need to replace to reset the drum counter.
