Kyocera KM-2540 Drum Replacement and Reset Procedure
Below you will find the Kyocera KM-2540 drum replacement and reset procedure. If there is one thing I can’t stand about Kyocera machines, it’s the drum units. They are rated extremely high, they are extremely delicate, and in most cases, extremely expensive. Give me a Sharp any day. Very rarely do I see a Kyocera drum last the full duty cycle. I consider it a good day if they last 200,000 prints.
