Frequently Asked Questions


Can I replace the toner cartridge without replacing the drum unit on my Brother HL-1030?

Yes. The toner cartridge and the drum unit are two separate consumables, so you may replace only the toner cartridge if it's empty. But if both are already empty, then you may replace them altogether.


What is the difference between the toner cartridge and the drum unit?

The toner cartridge serves as the container of the toner powder while the drum unit is the component that holds the image that needs to be printed.


If I place my order before 3:00 PM PST, will it ship the same day?
