How to Replace Cartridge(s)

  1. Open your printer's front cover. Then, pull the drum unit out.

Frequently Asked Questions


What's the difference between the toner and the drum unit?


Your Brother DCP-8040 needs both units to be able to function. The toner cartridge contains the powder ink that your printer will use to print your pages. The drum unit, on the other hand, transfers the toner onto any type of paper.


Is the toner included if I buy the drum unit?


Our toners are sold separately from our drum units. What you can do, however, is purchase our Brother TN570 And DR510 High-Yield Compatible Toner & Drum Combo, so you'll have extra toner and drum unit on standby.


What is the shelf life of both the toner and drum unit?


Both our Brother TN570 Black High-Yield Compatible Toner Cartridge and our Brother DR510 Black Compatible Drum Unit have a shelf life of 24 to 36 months. Just make sure that you keep them in a cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight.
