What is the difference between toner cartridge and drum unit?

Brother printers that use the TN760/TN730 toner cartridge also use the Brother DR730 drum unit. For Brother printers, the toner cartridge and drum unit are purchased separately.

Toner Cartridge

The toner cartridge contains powder (toner) used for creating letters and images.

You need to replace the toner cartridge when the toner is running short or print quality becomes poor because of toner deterioration.

Drum Unit

The drum unit transfers the toner to the paper.

The laser printer puts the toner on the roller called “The photosensitive drum” inside the drum unit, and then prints letters and images by fixing toner to the paper by heat and pressure.

To keep good print quality, the Brother machine detects the quality deterioration of the drum unit automatically. If the Brother machine displays “Replace drum” error message, you need to replace the drum unit.

When you received a TN760 or TN730 toner cartridge, remember not to put it directly into your printer, which will make your printer unusable. You need to put the toner cartridge into the DR730 Drum Unit before put the assembly into the machine.

When should I replace the toner cartridge?

When the “Toner Low” message on your printer’s display screen and the Toner LED turn on for 2 seconds and off for 3 seconds and repeats this pattern, it is the first signal that the toner cartridge is going to run out. But you can still print normally and don’t have to replace them at this moment. You can continue to use it until your printout become faint and you need to order a new toner cartridge as a backup.

When the “Replace Toner” message’s on your printer’s display screen and the Toner LED lights up, your printer will stop printing until you replace the toner cartridge with a new one.

When should I replace the drum unit?

You may need to replace your drum when the following happens:

When “Drum” LED lights up or flashes

If the “Drum” LED flashes, it’s the first sign that the drum unit is going to run out and need to be replaced soon. We recommend that you order a new drum unit to standby.

When the “Drum” LED is Lights up and the error message “Replace Drum” displays on the LCD of the printer, it means the drum unit has been run out and it’s time to replace the drum unit.

Poor print quality or black spots

If you find that the printer produces blurred, low-quality images, you may need to replace the drum unit. Black or colored toner spots on the printout also indicate that the drum unit is defective. In some cases, a horizontal line may appear on the printout each time the paper passes through the faulty part of the drum unit. In the above cases, the drum unit needs to be replaced.

Blank Printouts

If your printer doesn’t give any error message, but there is a large area of blank or even all white in the printout, it also means that the drum needs to be replaced.

Brother Toner Tips – How to extend the cartridge life

When your printer starts to display “Toner Low” message or your print starts to fade, you may be able to extend the cartridge life to print more pages. Open the printer’s toner cartridge bracket and remove the toner cartridge. Shake back and forth to redistribute the remaining toner, then reinsert the toner cartridge into the printer. This allows you to print for an extra one or two days, depending on how much you use the printer. You can repeat this procedure several times, but it must be while you are waiting for the cartridge you already ordered.
