Check that the fuser is reaching the right temperature, Is the paper coming out warm?
Is the toner loose on the paper?

To check the fuser:

Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
Pull the front cover down towards you.
Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
See it has toner residue at both ends.
If so, you'll need to replace it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How to change waste toner box for fs-1128mfp

There is no waste toner bottle in this model of printer. The waste toner accumulates in container inside Drum Unit. Open front cover. Remove the Developer Unit. Remove Drum Unit and take a look in the back side of it. There are two caps on the left side and right side. Remove the two caps and empty the unit into a safe place according to your local environment rules. As advise, the drum surface get a lighter-red color when it's worn and you have to change it. Probably you'll need to replace the unit when reached at approx.100.000 pages. Sometimes the unit gets deformities because of accumulation of waste toner and you can't solve the problem only emptying the container.

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....

After empying the waste toner bottle, the same waste toner bottle error still reigns on the copier screen.

The copier uses a photo sensor to determine when to replace the bottle. If the inside of the bottle is covered with toner, it thinks the bottle is still full. There should be a projection on the back of the bottle that fits into the sensor. You can try to clean the inside of the projection, but don't use any kind of liquid, use a dry cloth. You may have to buy another bottle. New ones should come with the toner. dood luck.

Indication is INK TONER WASTE BOX FULL Not sure what to do, if any thing? Al

You need to replace the waste toner collection bottle. The waste toner bottle has to be replaced every 30,000 Letter pages on average. Order part number 42869401. The directions will come with the replacement unit. Remove and dispose of the old waste toner carefully.

Manuals for the C9600 series printers are available from OkiData: . You can order the waste toner bottle for $14 from OKI here: . Other online vendors have the part as well.

I hope this helps.

E000019-0000 is coming. hw to solve that problem.

Hello tannan,
E19 means the waste toner bottle is full. This bottle gets filled as not all of the image that you see on your copies/prints actually made it to the page and must be cleaned off so the next image is clean, The waste toner bottle on your machine can't be reached as it is built into the drum unit. The drum unit just about the EVERTHING of the image development of the machine.The drum unit must be replaced. It is easy and not real expensive. The part number is "0385B003BA". It's called a GPR-18 drum unit. You will have to either call Canon or look on the net. Now, you "could" remove the old drum unit and vacuum the old waste toner out as there is I believe a clear cap on the drum unit that can be removed for this purpose. I'd go for replacing the drum as usually when the waste toner bottle is full the drum is at its end of life. I hope this helps you my friend. Take care SPINAL

Waste toner is almost full on Ricoh aficio AP3800C

Open the main front cover and you will see the white plastic waste toner bottle on the left hand side halfway up. I lies on its side and you can see the bottom of it.

Slide it out gently keeping it level to avoid spilling all the waste toner.

Either replace with a fresh empty waste bottle or empty the bottle into a large plastic bag you can keep sealed with the bottle inside while you shake it.

You have a good chance of spilling the toner all over your clothes if you are not carefull and note that the waste toner IS HIGHLY INFLAMMABLE so no naked flames nearby!!

Waste toner

to change the waste toner on your IR 5055, stand directly in front of machine and look on the right hand side of it where the power switch is a black button on right hand sdie at the back and you will see 4 screws and a metal plate that will come off the waste toner bottle is in there just empty it out and refit to machine all will work, now on your IRC3170 just undo front door and you will see a clear bottle just undo the black screw and take out the bottle and you will see a couple of little clear windows in the bottle make sure you take them out and clean them before you emtpy the bottle, this is where the machines shines a light through it to tell if the bottle is full or not so make sure you have them clean. refit the bottle and all will be ok

Black on the pages

Sound to me you are having a toner back up, likely a full of plugged waste toner bottle, the easiest way to pick up toner is with a vacuum. Make sure the vacuum you are using has some sort of filter to prevent spreading the toner all over the room.Once you have the spill cleaned up look for the source of the spill, if it is the waste toner bottle, replace it if you have one or dispose of the toner in a plastic bag. once it is clean, then try it again.

Hope this is of some help.
