Gently clean the scanner window by wiping it with a clean soft dry cloth. Do not use isopropyl alcohol. Cleaning the drum unit We recommend placing the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a cloth or large disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering toner.
Replacing the toner cartridge The DCP can print up to 6,700 pages using a high yield toner cartridge. When the toner cartridge is running low, the LCD shows Toner Low . The DCP is supplied with a standard toner cartridge that must be replaced after approximately 3,500 pages.
Open the front cover and pull out the drum unit. Caution ■ Place the drum unit on a drop cloth or large piece of disposable paper to avoid spilling and scattering the toner. ■ To prevent damage to the DCP from static electricity, do not touch the electrodes shown below.
If damage is caused to parts of this machine as a result of the use of toner or toner cartridges other than genuine Brother products due to the incompatibility or lack of suitability of those products with the machine, any repairs required as a result will not be covered by the warranty.
Gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Remove the protective cover. Insert the new toner cartridge in the drum unit until it clicks into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically.

Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab from right to left several times. Return the blue tab to the Home position ( ▼ ) before reinstalling the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. Home Position(▼) Reinstall the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly and close the front cover.
Replacing the drum unit The DCP uses a drum unit to create print images on paper. If the LCD shows Change Drum Soon , the drum unit is near the end of its life and it is time to purchase a new one. Even if the LCD shows Change Drum Soon , you may be able to continue printing without having to replace the drum unit for a while.
Follow these steps to replace the drum unit: Press the cover release button and then open the front cover. Remove the old drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. Place it on a drop cloth or disposable paper to avoid scattering toner. Caution To prevent damage to the printer from static electricity, do not touch the electrodes shown below.
Hold down the lock lever on the right and pull the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. (See Replacing the toner cartridge on page 7-24.) Discard the used drum unit according to local regulations, keeping it separate from domestic waste. Be sure to seal the drum unit tightly so toner powder does not spill out of the unit.
Checking the drum life You can see the percentage of the drum’s life that remains available. (DCP-8040) Press —OR— If you have the optional tray #2, Menu press (DCP-8045D) Press For five seconds, the LCD shows the available percentage of drum life.
