Question about Panasonic Workio DP-150PA Copier

Seating the Drum?

I hate to beg for forgiveness in my ingorance, there are two componets that come out of the front one is the toner and then there is the other thing, I assume it is the drum? correct? Does reseating it mean take it out shake it and put it back in?

I thank you for your help and ask for you to clarify. How can you tell if it is a drum issue? We are getting no error lights?

    Only way to tell if its a drum is by replacement.
    It is either the charge unit in the drum, Or the transfer on in the door. The transfer has to be located directly accross from the drum on the door. It is very close to the drum in order to put a charge on the paper to transfer the image from the drum to the paper.

HOW TO REMOVE TONER CARTRIDGE TO REPLACE WITH NEW ONE

Hi,

1. Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

2. Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.


3. Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.


4. Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


5. Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


6. Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.

7. Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer

How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

It tells me to replace the imaging unit i did but it still is telling me to replace the imaging unit any tips on how to resolve this?

sorry about my last reply. you have to replace the selenium DRUM, its a big drum inside the printer under the toner. It cost 150USD... kinda hate Samsung right?

you can also just take it out, shake it left to right several times and put it back and see if you still get the error.

"Pull down the front cover and you have access to the four toner cartridges, which are lined up, one above the other, inside. Unlike many recent colour laser designs, the drum unit is separate from each of these cartridges and has a different lifespan, as does the toner waste bottle, which also needs replacing periodically. "

Samsung has a chip that counts the number of prints you do. After X prints, it wil make you change the toner even if you do not need to. Also you have to replace the selenium drum and also the waste toner bin... I HATE SAMSUMG from now on... CHEATERS

My MF8180C is asking to replace the K cartridge, and I have bought a 301 toner cartridge but the printer has a drum cartridge instead. How do I replace the black toner into the drum cartridge or do I have...

Hi,
the toner crg is located in front of copier, the drum is separated from toner and it removes if you open upper cover.

If the copier ask you for toner open front cover and replace toner.

You do not have to replace drum if the copier doesnt tell you to replace.

Hi there i just replace the toner for my m5200 dell printer and the pages are coming really dark as if the pages are burnt.

Are you using Dell branded cartridges, or compatibles? I've seen issues with compatibles not properly seating when you install the toner cartridge, causing the cleaning blade to not properly wipe the drum (ghosting) or allowing too much toner on the drum (black pages, front and back). Re seating the cartridge should resolve.

The drum light came on (Brother HL 5240) and I replaced the drum with a new one and it still will not work... Any suggestions?

I continued looking and found where someone else had the same problem. I opened the front cover, held down the go key for 10 seconds and closed the door. This reset something because it works now.

Thanks

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.
