established rotation limit corresponding to the rated page yield, the product's LCD will advise you to
replace the drum. The product will continue to function; however, print quality may not be optimal.
If an unpacked drum unit is placed in direct sunlight (or room light for long periods of time), the unit may
There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as the temperature, humidity, type of

pages may be affected due to a variety of factors including but not limited to media type and media size.
