Frequently Asked Questions


What happens if I leave a toner cartridge unpacked for a long period of time?

If a toner cartridge is left unpacked for an extended period, the toner life is shortened. So make sure you unpack the cartridge only when you are ready to install it on your printer.


How would I know if it’s time to purchase a new drum unit for my Brother MFC-9700 printer?

When the LCD shows the ‘CHANGE DRUM’ error message, it means the drum unit is near the end of its life and must be replaced soon.


What is the estimated life of your compatible drum unit?

The estimated life of our compatible drum unit is up to 20,000 pages. But factors such as humidity, temperature, type of paper, and how much toner is used for the print job can affect the drum life. So the actual number of pages that it can print may be less than this estimate.
