  • Compatible Brother DR420 Drum

    Q:

    How do I reset the drum counter after replacing the DR420 drum?

    The drum life counter still says "0", and the message to replace the drum remains. How can I reset the drum life. (Print quality is fine.)

      I looked that one up for my printer: Brother 2280DW. When you replace the drum, BEFORE you close the door, hit the 'Clear' button. It will ask 'yes' or 'no.' I pressed the up arrow to choose yes, and waited two seconds for the printer to accept the drum reset. Then I closed the door. Job completed.

    • A:

      To reset the drum counter it would depend on your printer model. If you have a printer where the model number begins with MFC-** you would do the following:

      1. Open the front panel.
      2. Press the Clear/Back button. The display will show: REPLACE DRUM? 1. YES
      3. Close the cover

      If you have a printer model number that begins with HL-** you would use this method:

      1.Open the front cover of the printer
      2.Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up.
      3.Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button
      4.Close the front cover.

First time I purchased a refurbished drum for my laser printer and when it came I installed it but there was a problem with the gears not meshing properly. I called CS and the CSR in tech support was very professional and understood the issue I was having and immediately sent out a new drum, at no cost. I received it in a very timely manner, installed it and all is well now. Just a "fluke" as I have been buying from LD for many years and have always been more than satisfied with their products and customer services. 5-star company, service and products and highly recommended!

My Brother HL2240 printer kept giving me an error on the computer screen that the Drum had exceeded its useful life. I shopped for a compatible because the Brother brand was much more expensive. However, after installing the new Drum, I still get the error message and the "drum light indicator" still comes on. Even though the print quality is OK, the annoyance of the "drum has exceeded its useful life" hasn't stopped and I don't know why nor how to correct it. Do I just have to put up with it because my printer recognizes that the drum is not a factory original?

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
