A copier tech told me the other day, that if you didn't mind the toner on your a little bit, that there is a lever that you can push and move the toner box back and forth over a trash can and empty it out if you don't have another one to install. I would recommend that you do keep another one on hand especially if you print a lot. But this is a quick fix for when you aren't near a store and won't be out near one for a while. Also, if you do get toner on you, don't wipe it off blow it off or vacuum it off.

When I print a page black lines appear on the page making. Its like the toner is leaking or something. I don't know how to fix this issue. I've cleaned the inside of the printer several times and it seems to get worse or stay the same.

The toner is leaking. The toner cartridge has two compartments, one for new toner & another for waste toner. When the waste toner compartment is becoming full to its capacity it starts throwing extra toner outside of it. That is what is called toner leaking. If you can empty the contents of the waste toner compartment, your problem will be solved. One more thing if wiping blade for waste toner is worn out, it also leads to toner leaking.

Is a shop vac supposed to blow while vacuuming? We've had this for several years and I don't recall it blowing air OUT while I am vacuuming.

You should have two ports on the shopvac. One that is basically your vacuum and one you can use as a blower. Your hose will fit on both connectors. So yes, it would both **** and blow. This is called a "blow-through" system.

AO 41 TONER NO what toner

i think its becoz the toner is not detected as it has a coagulant of ink in it . better remove the toner and dip it in a mild hot water for some time and replace it after wiping the water. then check it whether it gives the same error message i don't think it will give it becoz that problem was there in my printer and now it s fine.

this machine is fun, in the back of the machine you may want to blow out with air, do this spairingly, if loose toner is around, it will blow all over. so you might want to do outside, the rear cover does come off, and the feed section does come off. if you feel your technical enough take this area off and blow out, and clean feed rollers
