Drum error means dust on drum usually. Take out the drum/toner assy and there is a blue tab on top of the drum that slides back and forth. Slide it back and forth 10+ times and this should solve this issue. Make sure to put the tab back into the original position. Put the drum/toner back into the machine.

Not really. Already did this, drum life reports 96%. It just printed 1 page and then got the error again.
I've got this same thing happening on several MFC-8860DN units. We replaced drums, reset the drum counter by the procedure above, there's 96%+ life left on the drums, the Drum Error appears again. I reseated the drum assembly in the printer, checked the lever & spring contacts. Did the corona wire procedure so many times I feel like an idiot, power cycled the MFC -- left it off for hours, no change. After calling Brother to diagnose the problem we've replaced 2 of our 3 printers. I have other Brother MFC printers installed at other clients offices with no problems whatsoever. This promblem is chronic and intolerable.

When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
VERY SIMPLE, at this point you may check, press the menu scroll to machine info, select parts use, and select drum, it should say 100%
