Waste toner is almost full on Savin C9020



The bottom left portion of the display gave the error message:
Waste Toner Bottle 1 Almost Full. Please call service.


They were still able to print, however this message would not go away.


To Fix:


Power down the printer using the normal shutdown method.


Open the top front door.

Remove the cover directly below the 4 toner cartridges.

The removable cover below the toner cartridges is actually the Waste Toner Bottle.


Bring this to the dumpster.



There is a round, clear-plastic tab on the underside of the "bottle". Remove this.

Shake the bottle around over the dumpster. Continue until all the toner has been removed.


Push the clear plastic tab back in place. Wipe off all toner residue before putting it back into the printer.


Put the waste toner bottle back into place. Power on the Savin. Confirm the message no longer appears and that users are able to print.

16 toner low


A laser printer needs toner to print, when this runs out the printer will print either blank or very faint images.
You need to replace the toner cartridge with a new one or a re-manufactured toner cartridges. Re-manufactured toner cartridges are cheaper than new toner cartridges for your model printer.

You can get a few more prints out of your toner cartridge by removing the toner cartridge from the printer and giving it a few horizontal shakes then place it back into the printer.

toner empty & replace


You printer has run out of toner, you need to purchase a new toner cartridge or a re-charged toner cartridge. Re-charged toner cartridges are cheaper that a new one.
You can get a few more prints out of your empty toner cartridge by removing the toner cartridge out of the printer and shake it, don't tilt it on the end, just shake it in a horizontal position and then put it back inside the printer.
You should be able to get several more printer pages.

Getting unknown toner level message on a Dell1710. Will not print anything. Thanks Owen Locke


Remove the toner cartridge from the printer and shake it. Does it have toner in it? Can you hear anything or does it feel heavy enough to believe that it is not empty?

Shaking also resituates the toner in the cartridge.

Turn the printer off. Put the toner cartridge back in it. Disconnect the printer from the computer and unplug the power supply for about 2 minutes. Plug the power back in first but dont turn it on yet. Connect to the computer and then turn the printer on. See if this gets rid of your error code.

If it doesnt get rid of the code, then replace the toner cartridge.

The problem is that the printer is not registering any toner inside the cartridge although the computer chip on the cartridge is saying that it is fairly new and should not be empty yet. When this happens, there is no other choice but to replace it.

The green flashing light lets you know that the machine is recieving data. This is completely normal, however, the red (Attention) light can mean several things. There can be a door open, missing toner cartridge, out of paper, or paper jam. In this cause it is probably the toner cartridge. Typically on these machines there is an Orange or Green tab on the side of the toner cartridge that needs to be pulled to fully engage the cartridge. You may want to make sure this has been pulled and the cartridge has been properly seated.

Hope this helps...let me know if you need any further assistance
