Question about Kyocera FS-3900 DTN MONO LASER PRINTER

2 Answers

Kyocera FS-3900 and FS-4000 Prints very faint. New printers affected

After installing the toner waste bottle and toner cartridge, Kyocera FS-3900/FS-4000's can exibit "faint print". Solution is to reseat the Developer assembly (which is what the toner cartridge sits in). No need to remove the toner cartrididge. Lift up on the toner cartridge and the Deleveloper will come with it. Reseating the Developer solves the faint print issue. You can also clean the square contact on the left-side of the Developer by removing it completely.

There is one more thing to this helpful advice.
There are a sponge roller underneath the drum unit. I you remove a black panel with white rollers, you can remove the sponge roller also. Then you'll be able to clean the roller.
It makes the drum unit's life more durable.

Get message " toner container is improperly installed."


Hi - What have you tried?
Process to check - simple but worth going back to basics
1 - Remove toner and reseat
2 - check you have removed all transport tags stickers etc
3 - Chck all arrears where a sensor could be blocked
4 - try a 2nd new toner (1st may be faulty)
4 - if there is a waste bottle or OPC drum attached to the toner itself ensure it is seated properly and fully locked into place

if none of the ablve work consult a printer repair or IT company

Waser toner betlle


The waste toner bottle comes with new toner cartridge and should be changed when the toner is installed. Here is a link to the Kyocera web site document that shows where the waste toner bottle is located and how to change it.

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.

Error message "check waste toner box". New cartridge just installed?


Check your waste toner box. At the side of the printer is a container for the extra toner to be stored. Everytime you change your cartridge you need to change the waste toner container. Carefully open side panel and remove waste toner bottle. There is a button you need to push do not force the bottle out.
Remove lid of new waste toner bottle and put into place and close side panel. Follow link for further details or use your setup guide that came with the printer on how to install the waste toner bottle.

Self test says 'check waste toner box'


It looks your waste toner box is full. Waste toner box collects toner drawn during printing. You have to remove waste toner bottle and empty it.

Follow the instructions to clean up toner bottle

Display says 'replace cartridge' & 'clean printer'. after cleaning out exces toner from where the waste bottle goes and around the toner cartridge and the cartridge that the toner sits in.


Try shaking gently the toner cartrige!!! This may help mix the toner which may be stuck together especially if the printer is not used often enough or stored in a place that is not as specified (humidity, ventilation, etc...).

Kyocera Mita FS-1030D Laser Bottom 2 lights blinking.


I think the two lights flashing together indicates waste toner box missing or full but as this printer doesn't have a waste bottle I assume it means the processing unit (ie the drum bit) needs replacing.
