How to fix waste toner cartridge Canon IR 3380

I recently ran into an issue where my Canon ir3380 gave the error "replace waste toner cartridge" and would not print any more. The waste toner cartridges are pretty expensive, but with this simple 'hack' I was able to get back printing in no time. How to reset waste toner cartridge error in 5 minutes. #1 remove waste toner cartridge #2 empty contents (gently) in a waste container. (note, BE CAREFUL not to breathe in the toner. have a fine mist spray bottle ready to water down the dust with repeated sprays of water mist as you are emptying the toner waste into your second waste container. I used a plain plastic bag in a waste basket) #3 When you have most of the toner out of the cartridge through the neck (don't need to be completely empty), go to next step. #4 you will notice a small clear plastic rectangular piece held in with two small phillips screws on the bottom corner of your waste cartridge. Remove the two screws and gently dump the toner out of this little piece and clean it (so its clear) with a cotton swab. Then reattach and tighten both screws back in. (There is an optical sensor in the main printer that detects the waste toner level with this piece, so once its clean again, then the printer will reset the error). #5 Replace the waste toner cartridge and you are back in business!

Canon imageRUNNER 2020 alternates between displaying Error Code E019 and saying "Waste Toner Full".


hi you have a waste toner error code, the waste toner is apart of the drum unit in these machines so you will need to order a new drum unit for it.
easiest way to fix the problem.

Toner waste container location


The waste toner is in the front, open front cover and the white bottle in the middle is the waste toner cartridge. Remove the black screw, and empty or replace the cartridge.
