    I just wanted to say thank you if you clean the drum filament with a warm damp paper towel while slowly moving the gear that spins it removes a lot of leftover ink and sharpens the image again . problem was it was still complaining the drum was bad but thanks to you this reset returned my printer to near new quality without cost.

    I was able to reset the drum end soon message on the printer LCD, but the Mac printer driver software that shows up in the Dock during a print (allowing you to cancel or pause a job) still shows a Drum Ends Soon message. Can’t find any way to remove the message from the driver software. I rebooted the iMac, looked at the options in the printer software utility, but nada.
