Re: Replacing Drum Catridge
Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:
DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.
1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations. 3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.
When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light. Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.
4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.

First of all, remove both toner cartridge and drum unit. Wipe the space they occupied with a clean cloth till you see its clean. Wipe also the upper part where the laser unit is, that is the place you will see a small glass-like strip above where the drum fits, till clean. Check that the paper tray is not dirty with toner and if it is , wipe it clean. Slowly turn the semi-circular feed rollers while wiping with damp clean cloth till clean. Then check that you replaced a new drum and blade and that the main charger above the drum is clean. Also check that the drum seal blade , that small nylon paper-like seal is not broken , and if broken reinforce with a clear cello-tape. Then, re-insert your cartridges back into the machine and a very clear copy will come out. Please try and you won't fail.
After replacing drum catridge you should reset the drum counter in the following way
1.Identify the buttons used for adjusting exposure (darker or lighter copies), amount of copies, clear copies and start copying
2.Now press the following sequence of buttons: [CLR], [AURO], [CLR], [AUTO] all thes one by one
3.Your unit should turn off the numbers in the panel
4.Now press 24 as if asking for 24 copies and press [START].
4.Now press 07 as if asking for 7 copies and press [START].
This should reset your drum and it should stop flashing
I've never seen this model in Australia but could you confirm if its drum or toner either way its just the machine letting you know that it needs changing soon, however we have other models that do the same and run for quite a while before the quality drops off
