When you removed the waste toner bottle, there is a sensor inside the copier. When you remove the waste toner, look to the opening where the top of the waste bottle was, clean that area and return the bottle and turn the copier OFF then ON. Good Luck
You have to empty out the waste toner bottle... The bottle is a milky white plastic and I believe it is right under the fuser unit. It should slid out toward you. Carefully dump the toner out of the bottle into a plastic garbage bag and re install the bottle and you are done....
Because of statics and plastic bottle, the toner is collected on bottle neck, where is two circles. Even if bottle isnt full but the neck of bottle is dirty the error will occure. Clean the neck with dry cloath, and then with some antistatic detergent, this will take care of the bottle.
But more permanent solution is to disconnect the waste toner sensor. You will see it above the waste toner bottle.Its a white connector with wires. Pull it out. But then you need to take a very good care of amount of waste toner in bottle, because if it gets too full it could broke the waste toner gears. So that means that you must every time when you replace the drum, empty the bottle too.
This error indicates that the waste toner bottle is full
Remove the small cover on the lower left hand side( one screw only) and remove the waste toner bottle and emptied it ensure that bottle neck is not clouded with toner otherwise even the bottle is empty still it will detect waste toner is full .hope this will help
I am not familiar with this model but usually Canon waste bottle has:
1. Check if the waste toner botlle has some clear portion near the neck, (as in IRC3200) or other part of the bottle ,even the waste toner was removed but if this portion is still clouded by toner the sensor will still detect the waste is full
2. If the situation is not like this some Canon Ir machine needs to reset waste toner counter in the service program mode even the waste toner bottle was emptied
The copier has an "eye" that detects when the waste toner bottle is full. If you dump it and reuse it, the residue can build up and cause the machine to "think" the bottle is still full. I experienced the same problem. If you re-use an old bottle, after emptying, rinse our any remaining residue and dry the bottle out. Your copier should then notice the bottle being empty.
