“Replace Drum” after changing a Brother DR3300 Drum Unit

During the process of changing a Brother DR3300 drum unit a prompt must be given in order for your printer to recognise the new drum unit. Giving this prompt resets an internal counter allowing you to use the drum unit for an estimated 30,000 more prints. If however this entering of this prompt is forgotten when installing a new drum unit then a “Replace Drum” message will continue to be shown on the screen and the ‘Drum’ LED will...

What is a Remanufactured Ink Cartridge?

A remanufactured cartridge is an ink cartridge that has been produced using the remains of an empty original cartridge. You can find remanufactured versions of many different ink cartridges online including those originally produced by Canon, Epson, Dell, Hewlett Packard (HP), Lexmark, Samsung and Sharp. When remanufacturing inks the cartridges are cleaned through and then have any non-reusable parts replaced, before being refilled with a high...

Can I Use An Out of Date Cartridge in My Printer?

I have lost count of the amount of times I have discovered out of date ink cartridges loitering in and around my desk here at Refresh HQ and it seems I am not alone. I am regularly asked by customers if an ink cartridges can be used after the best before/expiry date listed on the packaging. In most cases I can confidently advise them to install the cartridge without fear and continue printing. There are however a few concerns that invariably...

Printing with the Black Ink Cartridge Only

I am often asked if certain printers can continue printing with only one cartridge installed or with a cartridge missing. With the exception of some Lexmark printers that have the option of “Complete-A-Print ” the answer is no, I am not aware of any printer currently available that will continue printing if it does not believe it has a full set of cartridges installed. The most common intended application of having a single...

Pages printing out blank? One or more colours missing?

A common problem for users of inkjet printers is blank pieces of paper being spat out by a printer when coming to print important documents. Contrary to what you may think, this is most often the result of ink not being able to flow from a printhead of the cartridge/printer and not an electronic or mechanical fault from the printer itself. In some cases you may find that it is just a handful of colours that are missing or even just stripes or...

“CHANGE DRUM SOON” message after changing a Brother DR3000 Drum Unit

To print using your Brother laser printer you will need both a toner cartridge and a DR3000 drum unit. Changing the toner cartridge in your printer is simple and your printer checks out key parts of the toner cartridge to determine how full or empty it is. It is however a very different story when it comes to replacing a DR3000 drum unit and your printer will need to be told a new drum has been installed so that it can reset a counter...

Drum LED still flashes after changing a Brother DR3000 Drum Unit

In addition to a toner cartridge your Brother laser printer also requires a DR3000 drum unit to print. When you change toners your printer can tell when a new one has been installed by checking key points of the cartridge. It is not possible however for your printer to do this with a DR3000 drum unit and your printer requires a prompt to reset its internal counter that estimates the life of a drum unit. If left un-reset the drum LED light will...

HP 364/HP 364XL New Chip Design

For the past 18+ months we have been selling compatible HP 364 cartridges that require you to transfer the chips from HP original cartridges to a small plastic chip extender as detailed here. The feedback from these cartridges has been fantastic and the success rate very high. However we have recently been made aware of a change in the chip design of HP 364 cartridges that hinders the use of the chip extenders. Video Description How can I...
