Resetting 'Replace Drum' message on OKI OL400

The following may apply if the printer produces quality output but insists on the error message. Of course, if the printouts are faded, etc., it may indeed be time for proper maintenance.

(From: Jason Kuetemann (jason.tracey@sympatico.ca).)

Press the 'RECOVER/RESET' button while turning the printer ON. This will reset the counter.

(From: Steve TR I have this model, too. Don't fall for that drum error. It only goes by a page count and the drum will continue to yield quality images for at least another 200-500 pages! Also, you can hold down the MENU 1 key to get into a service menu where you can reset the drum count and total page count for the printer.
