Check the Drum Unit

The first step is to check the drum unit of your Brother printer. This is the component that contains the toner cartridge and is responsible for printing images onto paper. To check it, open up the front panel of your printer and locate the drum unit. If it looks worn or damaged, then it may need to be replaced. If not, then you can move on to the next step.

Replace Drum Unit

If your drum unit does need to be replaced, then you will need to purchase a new one from a reputable supplier. Make sure that you purchase one that is compatible with your specific model of Brother printer. Once you have obtained a new drum unit, follow the instructions provided with it for installation.

Reset Printer

Once you have installed the new drum unit, you will need to reset your printer so that it recognizes the new component. To do this, press and hold down both the “Go” and “Cancel” buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds until all of the lights on the control panel flash simultaneously. This will reset your printer and should clear up any “Drum End Soon” errors that were present before.

By following these steps, you should be able to easily fix any “Drum End Soon” errors on your Brother printer without too much hassle. With a little bit of patience and some basic troubleshooting skills, you can get your printer back up and running in no time.
