How do I replace the image drum unit?


If you have dirty print-outs then the image drum may have accumulated toner on it. Press the Select Function key, then the 10/Printer Cleaning One Touch key and the YES key. Your fax machine prints a cleaning page to clean the image drum. Repeat this procedure several times and then check again if you still have dirty print-outs. If this procedure does not solve the problem, your fax machine needs a new image drum unit. Contact your supplier to order one. If the faxes you receive are light or have vertical streaks in them and you are not out of toner, or if your fax machine displays a REPLACE DRUM CART. message, your fax machine needs a new image drum unit. The life of an image drum depends on a number of factors, including temperature and humidity, the type of paper you use, and the number of pages per job. Contact your supplier to order one.

Caution! Never expose the image drum unit to light for more than 5 minutes. Never expose the image drum unit to direct sunlight. Always hold the image drum unit by the ends. Never touch the surface of the green drum inside the drum unit.

Warning! If you open the top cover, you will see a label that reads CAUTION-HOT. This area is extremely hot and must not be touched under any circumstances.
