How do I clean the optical waste sensor - Samsung CLP 315 Laser Printer

Posted by on

  • Ruth Edwards Feb 19, 2012

    I dumped my waste container when I found it really full, cleaned it best I could but the printer won't print. The green light comes on for a few seconds and change to red. I've been told I need to clean the sensor that detects when the waste container is full but I don;t know where it is. Is it part of the container itself? The only error message I have gotten was to replace the waste container... when I run troubleshooting, it finds nothing.

I replaced waste cartridge in Xerox 7750, but display panel still says cartridge is almost full. Can I reset it somehow?


There is an optical sensor above the cartridge where the small clear window is. It may be covered in dust. Use caned air to blow out the area or try a q tip to clean off the sensor.

Can I empty the waste tone or do I have to replace it?


Toner is very fine and the dust in the air can easily enter your lungs. Standard vacuum cleaners will not contain toner and it will go into the air. Sometimes you can empty the containers but be warned that many designs have an section that rests in an optical sensor and that section is almost impossible to clean. Waste toner collectors are usually not that expensive.

Message on screen says "Waste Toner Box Full"


Typically you will need to replace the waste toner box. There is usually a difficult to access part of the bottle that is used by an optic sensor to tell when the box is full. Plus toner is very fine and you do not want it getting into the air. Toner will pass through the filter of most vacuums and go back into the air.

DEAR SIR I HAVE PURCHASED IR 3300 RC MACHINE . I HAVE 2 PROBLEMS. 1. IT ALWAYS DISPLAYS REPLACE THE WASTE TONER . BUT THE WATER TONER CONTAINER IS EMPTY. THE REP SAYS THER IS A PROBLEM IN SENSOR ....


Hi,
regarding your first problem:
The waste toner container box neck must be always clean, because on the neck are two round dents, where optical sensor reads status. The permanent solution is to disconnect the sensor, his wires are above waste box ( white connector ).After disconnecting the sensor be sure to empty box every 60 000 to 100 000 copies.

Now the second problem:
Do you mean that paper cant be picked up? Does other paper sizes comes trough?
For start clean the pick up roller wich is locate inside the right door ( on top of the door ) in some cases covered with plastic cover.
Note: when you putt the paper in bypass, be sure to select correct paper size, paper type and from where to pull paper( bypass ).

If you want service manual write on emma.servis@gmail.com

Hope that helps!

I emptied the waste toner recepticle on the canon imagerunner 2800, made sure all paper jams were cleared and turned the machine off and on twice, still cannont get the 00019-000 error to clear. Any...


Yes, when you emptied the waste toner bottle - you should have cleaned the neck of the bottle because if there is toner stuck to it(which there usually is) the machinestill thinks it's full because an optical sensor reads the level through this neck - through a circular inset that you'll notice upon inspection. Just clean the bottle neck.

How to reset waster toner bottle full Xerox 3535


Here's what I did.

Emptied the waste toner cartridge. Left it out of the machine. Held the microswitch (located to the right of the optical sensors) in the "cartridge in" position with a paperclip. Printed one document. Inserted the waste toner cartridge. Error now gone!

Waste Tank Full - Solid Red Light


Technically you do have to buy a new toner tank (they come in packs of 3, Harvey Norman normally stock them), however the carefull application of a vacume cleaner (use disposable vacume bags to do this, cloth bags don't filter well enough) to the full waste tank can at least double its life if not more. You will only be able to do this 2 or 3 times but in a pinch it will let you resume printing for a while. It allso helps to clean the optical sensor windows (their the only optically clear plastic bits on the cartridge so hard to miss) with a cotton bud (a DRY cotton bud). You will need to clean both sides of the window portal from the inside of the wate tank as well. Bending one end of the cotton bud at a 90deg angle will help when doing this. It's fiddly and potentially very messy work if your not carefull so be prepared to make a mess and most importantly keep the vacume nozle near the opening of the waste tank to **** up the super fine waste toner powder.

As for if this is just your printer wasting toner, no its not. If the printer did not clean its roller after every colour print you would end up with colour contamination on the following pages. Hence why colour prints take longer than black.

CLP 510 error


Sir,
Inside the front cover of the Samsung CLP-510 printer is a "Waste Toner Bin" - this bin collects any toner which is not fused to the paper during the printing process. The photo at the left shows the waste toner bin installed in its correct position.As you print, the waste toner bin "fills up" with wasted toner, and you have to replace it on a regular basis. Other printers send waste toner back to a separate compartment in the toner cartridge, however Samsung prefers to sell you and additional "consumable" - apparently the $130 cost of the toner cartridges (x4 cartridges = $520/refill) just isn't sufficent revenue.
In the photo below, we see the waste toner bin removed from its operating position, and lying down on the printer door - Just tipped down from its normal place.

Note (1) - this is an optical sensor which detects when the waste toner bin is full - A "bump" on the bin (2) fits into the sensor notch when the bin is in position. An optical sensor looks though the "bump" and is supposed to detect when the toner reaches this level.
Note that one of the inlets for waste toner (3) is just above the sensor "bump" (when the bin is in it normal position). You can also see the round feed which goes into this hole, just above the sensor notch (1).
The problem occurs because the waste toner being injected into the bin "runs down the side" through the sensor "bump" - after a little while, this dirties the walls of the "bump", and although this is nowhere near as opaque as the actual toner, the sensor is sensitive enough to decide the bin is full and shuts down printing. In my opinion, this represents two fundamental flaws in the design:
  • The toner inlet should not be positioned such that toner entering the bin runs through the sensor area.
  • The optical sensor should not be so sensitive that a little dirt is detected as a full bin.
It is interesting to note that Samsung explicitly advises that you not empty and reuse the waste toner bin - The overly sensitive sensor pretty much guarantees that you cannot do this, as it is virtually impossible to empty the bin without getting toner into the sensor bump, after which the printer will refuse to print and direct you to replace the bin.

The Cure The first time this happened, I noted the dirty sensor notch and cleaned the area - It lasted only for a few pages, at which time I contacted Samsung to report the problem - No matter how I tried to explain the situation to them (over several days of correspondance) the only response I could get from them was "the bin must be full - change it".The new bin lasted for perhaps 100 pages, at which point the dreaded "replace waste toner bin" message appeared. Samsumg responded that I should clean the external sensor (I had advised them that I had tried cleaning the external sensor in my first contact with them).
TO DATE - SAMSUNG HAS REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEGE THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM IN THE DESIGN OF THE WASTE TONER SYSTEM.
To confirm my theory that toner entering the bin via the inlet was dirtying the sensor area, I added a baffle made from tape as shown on the left - This cured the problem - Note how dirty the tape has become! (It WAS clear tape)... a LOT of toner was passing through this area!
Worried that the hot toner might melt/burn the tape baffle, I have since replaced it with one made from aluminum foil - Using only a single layer, with a fairly thin part that passes through the hole and is taped in place on the outside. It is important to get the part passing through the hole to be as flat against the side as possible, as it has to fit in beside the inlet from the printer - too much thickness or wrinkles here could cause a messey leak. It is also important that the baffle NOT be so long that it would prevent the sensor notch from filling from the bottom - this could cause the printer to overflow the bin - which would not be good... I recommend that you check the waste toner bin every time you change a toner cartridge.

Ricoh CL3000 Laser Replace Waste toner


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.
