How to replace the Drum Unit of Brother MFC-7460DN Multifunction Printer

  1. Open the front printer`s cover while the printer is turned on and wait at least 10 minutes, in order to allow the printer to cool down.
  2. Initially, you must grab the front side of the drum assembly (exhausted drum unit+toner cartridge) and pull towards you, in order to remove the drum assembly from the printer.
  3. Remove the still useable toner cartridge from the exhausted drum unit by pushing down the green lock lever with your left hand and pulling the cartridge upwards with your other hand. Please note that you should avoid touching the contact area of the toner cartridge.
  4. Unpack the new drum unit, but avoid touching the sensitive photoconductive drum, which is located on the top side of the drum unit.
  5. Insert the toner cartridge into the new drum unit, but make sure that it clicks securely into place. Please note that the green lock lever will be automatically raised, if the toner cartridge is installed properly.
  6. Slide the corona wire cleaning tab (little green tab located on the top side of the drum unit) to the end of the cleaning channel and then back to its ''home'' position. Please note that you should slide the cleaning tab at least 4-5 times to optimally clean the primary corona wire, and then return the tab to its original position.
  7. Insert the drum assembly (new drum unit+toner cartridge) into the printer, and then press the [Clear button].
  8. Confirm the drum counter reset by pressing the [1] button.
  9. Wait for the following confirmation message ''Accepted'' to appear on the LCD, and then close the front cover of your Brother MFC-7460DN Multifunction Printer.
