I was concerned when my Drum light began flashing after only about 1.5 toner cartridge use. I knew it the toner should last more like 3 toner cartridges. After an online search, I tried the following successfully:

1. remove drum/toner assembly,
2. detach toner from drum,
3. use rubbing alcohol and a soft, clean, lint-free cloth to clean the rolling, shiny part of the drum,
4. let it dry completely,
5. reinsert toner cartridge into drum,
6. reinstall drum/cartridge unit into printer,
7. with the front door of the printer still open, press and hold the blue GO button until all four light come on (this resets the printer and I had to first close the front and reopen it again to get this to work),
8. close the front and everything should work fine again.

Note that there will come a time when this cleaning of the drum won't work and it will need to be replaced, but maybe not as soon as simply following the blinking Drum light would suggest.

The cost for the component is out of line for what a replacement machine would cost.

The cost for the component is out of line for what a replacement machine would cost.

For example, the cost for the 5250DN printer dips below the cost of this cartridge periodically. It would be a better alternative to wait for discounts/rebates to kick in and pick up a new printer instead of spend more for a component.

Duplexing stopped functioning reliably

Comments about Brother DR-520 Drum Cartridge:

After buying this new DR 520 Drum, the duplexing function in my Brother MFC 8860DN stopped working reliably. I won't buy another one of these drums. Even with single sided use, it has worn out prematurely.

            I have used other Quill Brand items, including ink cartridges, and they worked just fine. This was my first time buying a Quill Brand replacement Drum; I was not impressed. I am willing to give it another try in the future, but my first impression is not a good one.
