WTC Replace How do you reset the printer count after replacing the waste toner cartridge? Even after replacing it my printer will only display "WTC Replace". I've tried all the tricks I can think of to reset the printer or get into the menu system, but have had no luck. Any help would be appreciated!

SOURCE: Toner waste container location

If memory serves me correctly, It is located on the right rear of the machine, you either go through teh back or remove a panel of the right side rear....

SOURCE: toner light

I taped a very small white piece of paper over the sensor eyes on either side of the cavity where the cartridge fit. I read that coloring in the actual "windows" that are on either side of cartridge also may help so I did that too.

So open the front, remove cartridge, look on the cartridge for a small circle and color them with black marker (or use electrical tape), look where they would have aligned inside the cavity, tape a small piece of white paper over those sensor eyes.

I just did this and it stopped the blinking. Don't know how long but based on my reading, one of these was the trick.

The problem is that the cartridge is not clean, the toner is still on the inside near the sensor area. If you get a pipe cleaner or a peice of tissue on some wire you can wipe the area. Failing that give it a good wash, let it dry and it will work. I'v done this a few times now

SOURCE: I keep cleaning the toner/printer

How are you cleaning the tank? Just dumping the contents into a trashcan may not work. The printer uses a light sensor to detect whether the tank is full. When the light does not shine through the clear window of the tank, the printer thinks that the tank is full. Sometimes cleaning the window with a cotton swab will make it work, but it can be difficult since the location of the window with respect to the opening of the tank is not a straight shot.

Another way to clean it would be dump the waste toner into ther trashcan. Tap the tank a few time to get as much of the toner out. Then add some soap and water into the tank and seal the tank opening with the green lid. Then shake the soapy water in the tank for a about a minute. Then dump the soapy toner/water out. Rinse again with just water and and allow it to dry. You don't have to get the tank completely clean, just enough to stop the waste tank error message.

Hope this helps.

Reset waste toner count


The only ways to reset the count:
1: replace the waste toner bottle with a brand new one.
2: thoroughly clean all the waste toner out of the bottle(requires disassembly and reassembly - making sure you get all the springs and parts back in right)
The waste toner bottle is relatively inexpensive, so I would just recommend doing that. Cleaning out the bottle is extremely messy.

Reset printer


The toner cartridges for the 8026 have a chip on them which count the amount of toner being dispensed from the toner cartridge.
When the printer counts the amount of toner being dispatched from the cartridge has exceeded the amount of "usable" toner in the cartridge, the printer will display the error showing the toner cartridge needs to be replaced.
Crucial the printer also "writes" to the chip on the toner cartridge to say it is empty----You can no longer use this cartridge by simply refilling it.

You need to replace the toner cartridge on the printer with a Genuine New 8026 toner, this should then clear the error automatically and the printer will again spring back to life.

If you are using a new toner you may;

  1. Have a faulty replacement toner
  2. Have a blockage in the pipe which takes the toner from the toner cartridge to the drum unit
  3. Have a fault with the toner dispense motor

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.

Toner leaking ink on one side of paper pretty bad


There could just be a lot of toner inside the printer, but it could also be the drum unit (which also collects the waste toner) is so full that it is leaking.

This typically happens when the 'replace drum' indication is reset without actually replacing the drum.

If you have reset this without replacing the drum, and the print count is in excess of 30,000, you probably just need to replace the drm unit.

Replaced Toner and Still Wants it to be replaced


You need to manually reset the CRU counter in the service menu to reset the toner count. This is designed so the xerox tech can come in and get paid for work. What you do is the following:
Enter the service mode by turning the machine off....then hold the (i) button and (<) arrow button simultaniously while turning the machine on. Then go down to nvram access enter menu, then go to CRU menu. Then go to the Toner CRU count menu, then select the toner you wish to reset and allow the machine to reset.
IF you need any parts feel free to come to my store

Toner and Imaging Unit issues


If this IS a CLP-510, first make an information confirmation print.
Press MENU, then press ENTER, and ENTER again.

Look at the counter for the imaging unit, is it a low count confirming that you have indeed replaced it ?
If not you will need to reset the counter.

Check the counters for the toner cartridges, and check the capacity of the cartridge. On a CLP-510 the image counter for the toner is held on the chip on the cartridge (which also identifies the capacity of the cartridge).

There have been some faulty (oiginal Samsung chips), and of course re-manufactured cartridge chips could fail (many re-manufacturers don' test their cartridges before dispatch, they don't have the facility to do so without starting the count on the chip (or 'bowing' the reset fuse on a CLP-500 cartridge). VERY few re-manufacturers can test these cartridges without starting the count.

Sometimes the 'replace xxxxx toner' messages are caused by toner on the three contacts on the side of the cartridge, or their mating contacts inside the printer. Rarely, this can be caused by a faulty circuit board.
