Couple of things to try: - If you just emptied the waste cartridge then you have to take the bottle back out and clean the insides as well. The sensor sees the toner on the walls and still thinks it?s full. FYI as typical the manufacturer recommends replacing the bottle with a brand new one. - If not that then you may have toner covering the optical sensor. Try blowing the area where the waste bottle attaches to the printer with canned air. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Just an FYI, this can be very messy. If you figure out how to get the thing out (should be near your consumable supplies like toner and image units) place the whole unit into a plastic bag, tie the bag, then shake it out gently. You may have to learn how it opens in order to "open the door". Best to use a vaccum with a heppa type filter as normal vaccum filter is too course for the fine toner partcles. Be ready for toner volcano.

Drill a 3/4" hole in lower left side of waste toner bottle. Waste toner is very fine and will get all over the place – you also may want a breathing mask. Take outside and dump waste in large ziplock bag and dispose properly. Put a large piece of shipping tape and cover hole. Put back into ricoh c410. This wi;; save you about $50 and less plastic in our landfills. SG

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!!
