Frequently Asked Questions


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


Your Brother HL-2242D needs both the drum unit and the toner to continue functioning. The two units have different uses. 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 the paper that you'll use for printing.


I'm planning to buy the 3-pack combo. How long will each expire?


Our Brother TN450 & DR420 Compatible High-Yield 3-Pack Combo (composed of 2 toner cartridges and 1 drum unit) have a shelf life of 24 to 36 months. To make sure the unopened cartridges don't dry out immediately, we advise that you keep them in a cool, dry place and away from direct sunlight.


Does the toner come with the drum unit?


The toner is sold separately from the drum unit. You can, however, purchase our Brother TN450 & DR420 Compatible High-Yield 3-Pack Combo, so you'll have extra toners and a drum unit at the ready, as soon as your printer tells you you're running low.
