Customer Question
I have a brother...

I have a brother mfc7340 that I have installed a new drum in and I need to get it going from there.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your printer? How old is it?

Brother mfc7340 , not sure on the age 5 +

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

This is a stand alone copy machine

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

A few days, it said drum error. I have installed a new drum before, but it is not letting me copy

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?

No, just how to get rid of the error message so I can continue
