I have 'reused' the same drum three times and still prints like a charm.
Open the toner door and pull out the toner/drum assembly. Take the toner off the drum tray. Use a alcohol pad or lint free cloth and wipe the mauve coloured drum to remove the excess lint and toner collected on the drum. Rotate the drum with the white gear and keep cleaning until the whole drum is done.
Put the toner back in the drum tray. Clean the corona wire by sliding the blue tab back and forth 3 or 4 times. Put the toner/drum back into the printer and close the door.
After the printer does the self test the drum light will cone on again so then you need to reset the counters.
Open the door again
Hold the GO button until all 4 lights are lit up
Release the GO button
Close the door
Printer will self test and should extinguish all the trouble lights.

Caution! Reset the drum counter only when you replace the drum unit with a new one.
To reset the Drum Counter:
1. Press the cover release button and then open the front cover of the printer.
2. Press and hold down the 'Go' button until all four LEDs are lit. Once all four LEDs are lit, release the 'Go' button.
3. Close the front cover. Make sure that the Drum LED is now off.
