When the image drum cartridge reaches the 90% point of its life cycle on an Oki Data laser printer, a "Change Drum" message will display on the screen. Around this time the print typically starts to become faint or starts to deteriorate. When a new drum cartridge is installed, the drum cartridge counter needs to be reset for the printer to keep track of the life cycle of the replacement.
