It's not recommended to empty this as it contains 4 colored toners and you would heve to ensure that the light sensor sees completely clear in the view area. Replace the bottle with type 155 waste toner bottle (about $25) from on line supplier. To do this is simply a matter of opening the right side cover and sliding the green lock lever to the unlock position. Then remove the bottle and replace. Don't forget to slide the green lock lever to the lock position and close the cover.

    So, what to do with the old (full) waste toner cartridge? I'd like to keep it out of the landfill.

My samsung cop-365w says there is an error and I need to replace or install waste toner container - all my toners have high percentages - how can i make it work?


The sensor seems to send light through 3 small, clear "windows" on the left side of the waste container. I emptied the small amount of waste into a plastic bag for disposal and then used compressed air (outside) to blow out the remainder of the container, making sure the windows were clear. Presto! All good in the hood.

I have a c652 biz hub keeps coming up waste toner box konika minolt printer


To replace the waste toner box, open the front door above the paper drawers. The waste toner box is on the left hand side (usually). Your supplier should have supplied an extra waste toner box. Slide out the 'full' toner box. Replace with an empty one. This should register that you have installed an empty waste toner box. If not, turn off the copier and after a minute or two, turn on the coper again. [If you want to be environmental friendly, the toner box has a small slide cover approximately 1-2cm long (usually on the upper face at the rear as you remove it). Place this end in a plastic bag, slide open this 'cover' and rotate the toner box 180° so this is facing down. Care needs to be taken to prevent the 'waste toner' from flying everywhere. Gently agitate the box until all the waste toner (a grey color) has spilled out. (Approximately 600-800gms) Carefully seal the bag and dispose. An industrial vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the residual toner, clean down the waste toner box with a soft rag and it is ready to re-use.]

Where do dispose of full toner waste bags?


It depends on where you live.
Do a Google search for " what's the best way to dispose of full toner waste bags?" And add your city,or state on the same line. It will return a list of places to recycle the toner.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The copier has an "eye" that detects when the waste toner bottle is full. If you dump it and reuse it, the residue can build up and cause the machine to "think" the bottle is still full. I experienced the same problem. If you re-use an old bottle, after emptying, rinse our any remaining residue and dry the bottle out. Your copier should then notice the bottle being empty.

Waste Toner Light won't go off?


The waste toner is usually a bottle near the toner cartridge which collects excess toner powder from the cartridge. It is usually present in more heavy duty laser printers, not all printers have them as a replaceable supply. You would need to refer to your manual for replacement instructions, they vary from printer model. For this machine, the Waste Toner supply number is #420131. In the case of the first poster, my best guess would be there was spillage of toner on the sensors to detect the waste basket overflowing, hence why the error message is constant. This would require cleaning of the sensors, a relatively simple task but for proper access, the machine would need to be partially disassembles for thorough cleaning. It would be best done at a repair centre.
