You need to replace the waste toner bottle (packaged with a new toner cartridge) you can't just empty it. There is a photo sensor that "reads" through a window of the waste bottle. The sensor could be dirty. Clean the slits with a q-tip.

My photocopier has been displaying this error code message C-7990 a photocopier kyocera KM-1500


C7990 is

Waste toner reservoir overflow problem (when the total number of copies is 100 thousand sheets or more)

• After E31 is displayed, 1,000 sheets are copied. Or waste toner exceeds 5 g.

Defective waste toner sensor or engine board (KP-5061).


Shake the process unit from side to side and turn the power switch off and then on. If the problem cannot be solved, replace the process unit. After replacing the process unit, turn the power switch off and then on. If the problem

cannot be solved, replace the waste toner sensor or the engine board (KP-5061).


I hope this is helpful,

Waste toner gets full before toner runs out


Actually, the waste toner should get full sometime before the regular toner runs out in laser printers that have several toner cartridges compared to the single waste toner reservoir.

You can dump the toner reservoir out and avoid buying the empty waste toner 'reservoir.'

I did this on my Brother Laser printer and saved about $30 or so for an empty plastic waste toner bottle or jar.

If this is the way the Kyocera-4020DN is, then I would put the waste toner, which is just that, waste, and put it into a plastic zip loc storage bag and throw it away. Don't breath the toner.

Good luck on this repair.

Check waste toner box


We have a Kyocera Mita FS-3820N and sometimes when the toner box message does not go away, even after emptying the box, we simply hit it a few times in the area of the box. Works every time!

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture


Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.

No B/W print while black cartridge is full.


Your printer and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.

If an ink cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus CX8400 LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.

NOTE:
You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.


Follow the steps below to replace one or more ink cartridges that are low on ink, expended, or too old:

1. Turn on the printer.

If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.

2. Open the scanner.

3. Open the cartridge cover.

4. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

5. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. (Do not shake a cartridge after opening the package; ink may leak.)

6. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

7. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

CAUTION:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.

8. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

9. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

10. Close the scanner.

11. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.

When you see a completion message on the LCD display screen, ink charging is finished.

CAUTION:
Never turn off the printer while ink is charging or you'll waste ink. If you see an ink replacement message on the LCD display screen, press OK and press down all the cartridges securely.

I have a message that says "waste toner box almost full" I cannot find the waste toner box. can you tell me where it is? The copier is a Kyocera KM-8030. thank you Frances


After looking on the net if your printer is under warranty, you should call Kyocera Service Rappresentative or an Authorised Service Centre as Kyocera is not releasing how to empty or clear the waste toner box and if you do you will woid the warranty.

Waste Toner for GP200 series


The waste toner is collected inside the drum cartridge. It can be emptied by removing the drum cartridge assy and opening the opaque window and emptying into a large bag. The lines on your copies are probably a symptom of the drum being worn out, so replacement is probably a better option. The drum is good for 60,000 copies.
