Brother MFC 7420 dust on drum

Yeah…. I fixed it. After several days at trying to clean the corona wire and following Brother's instructions I did the unthinkable. Yes, I decided to heck with it and pulled out the old vacuum cleaner attached the upholstery brush and vacuumed it all - corona wire, drum, inside the machine and everywhere the brush will reach. I am amazed no more “dust on drum”, etc. messages. My machine is printing fine no more problems. Now this worked for me it may not work for you. I was prepared to purchase a new drum.
