The dreaded “Drum End Soon” message on your Brother printer can be a real headache. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to get your printer back up and running in no time. Here’s what you need to know about solving this issue.
Check the Drum Unit and Replace if Necessary
The first step in solving the “Drum End Soon” issue is to check the drum unit in your printer. The drum unit is responsible for transferring toner onto the paper, so if it’s worn out or damaged, it can cause this error message to appear. To check the drum unit, open the front cover of your printer and locate the drum unit. If it looks worn or damaged, it’s time to replace it with a new one.
Clean the Drum Unit
If your drum unit looks fine, then you may need to clean it. Dust and debris can build up on the surface of the drum unit over time, which can cause errors like this one. To clean it, use a soft cloth dampened with water or rubbing alcohol and gently wipe down all surfaces of the drum unit. Be sure not to use any abrasive materials as this could damage the surface of the drum unit.
Reset Your Printer
If cleaning the drum unit doesn’t solve the problem, then you may need to reset your printer. This will clear any errors that may be causing this issue and allow you to start fresh with a clean slate. To reset your printer, turn it off and unplug it from power for at least 10 seconds before plugging it back in and turning it on again. This should reset any errors that were causing this issue and get your printer back up and running again.
Solving the “Drum End Soon” issue on your Brother printer doesn’t have to be a hassle. With these simple steps, you can get your printer back up and running in no time.
