The waste toner on this machine ends up in the drum unit. The drum unit normally needs replacing before it fills with toner. If you do need to empty it------take the drum unit out of the machine, and on the side is a plastic stopper.....remove this and empty the toner out.......don't use a vacuum cleaner as the toner particles are smaller than the filter on the vacuum...you end up with toner all over the place and a knackered vacuum...
You see these machines needs to be kept very well. 1. the machine is not sensoring your toner. a) need for the machine to be serviced it probably has a lot of spill toner inside. b) toner empty sensor is not positioned properly. b) the toner empty sensor is not functioning properly and needs to be changed.
No you should not empty this bottle. It is designed to keep the excess toner inside itself and should be disposed of properly.

You could try going into the sp modes and check sp 5052-1 this is for independent toner check if the toner cartridge was checked by the copier as empty and you refilled it the machines check of the chip still senses it empty by turning this off it could reset it for you .. I have had some mixed results sometimes it works only occasional failure.. Hope it helps Good Luck A
If the signs that is blinking red which is shape like triangle , it is the toner cartridge indicator. The toner cartridge is empty.Try to pullout and check the toner cartridge, if it is light in weight it is already empty.
A common mistake is that people think that the waste toner needs to be emptied and instead the toner needs to be replaced --- and vice versa. Check to make sure that the toner bottle is not empty. Also, if you made copies that took ( used ) more toner then the machine was able to replenish, the machine has not had a chance to catch up. Place a white sheet of paper on the platen glass and make blank white copies. You may only be able to get 1-2 copies at first but as the device catches up with the toner replenish you should be able to make more. The blank copies you make -- do NOT put that paper right back into the machine. Lay it flat and let it cool, this will help prevent unwanted jamming due to heat build up in the paper. IF you have good amount of new toner in the machine, gently tap the front line ( or rear line) that feeds the used toner into the waste bottle. Sometimes the waste toner will clog and back up into the machine giving false 'waste toner full' message.
There really isn't enough information given to give a proper solution. This copier has the drum light come on steady or flashing to indicate the waste toner needs to be removed. I don't know if you're a technician or not but lay people have emptied the toner cartridge instead of removing the drum, removing the cap on top of the drum, emptying the waste toner , replacing the cap on the drum, then putting the drum back into the copier. I've never had a copier keep the drum light on after doing this.
(blinking every 5 seconds)
Indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Purchase a new toner and have it ready for when Toner Empty is indicated.
Replace the toner cartridge with a new one.
