    Can i make my black drum into a colour drum? I have a FR3950 (european). Can I change the settings? I want to make it hunter green.

    Cheers!

    If the black drum has already been used for black printing, I think you might find that the labor cost to clean all black ink from the drum and replace any parts that cannot be completely cleaned will be more than you are saving by not purchasing a new color drum.

    I think you need to change the circuit boards and wiring harnesses in the drum to change the color of a drum on the FR line. And then run at least a couple of reams of paper through the machine until the color looks correct.
    I have never tried to change the color of a FR drum before though, so take this with a grain of salt.

    I don't think it can be done, the ink pump body is different between the black & color drum units.

    wouldn't you have to modify the tube? as jermyth said, i think the nozzle diameter is larger on the black drums - but also the "fin" is different?

    I mean, I have heard of it being done, but it seems like WAY more trouble than it's worth.

    Don't quote me but I heard it said that once you go black you never go back.

    Z series drums are different. It can be done. I believe its been posted on here before. Mostly got to change codes in test mode and run alot of ink through to purge out the old ink.
    Good luck.
