Question about Samsung CLP-550N Laser Printer
I was happily printing away when I got an error message about my waste toner tank being full. I emptied it and returned the tank to its place and the printer was just fine for a week or two. Now, it has once again given me the same error message, and I've once again emptied the tank and reinstalled it, but this time the error message won't budge. Help!!
What I have started to do is to actually wash the toner tank out with water and make sure it is good and dry then be sure the section that breaks the light sensor is good and clean (it is on the left side as you look at the backside - the side that goes toward the printer - and protrudes out) the tank full indication comes on when the tank gets dirty

There was a problem with the waste toner level sensor in some of these machines. I had to have mine replaced under warranty in the end as it was too frustrating to keep the sensor light path spotlessly clear. Stuart

I did cleaning, drying, etc. as mentioned by caaa, but no result. After noticed a square hole on a waste tank which has to slightly push the black plastic arm in printer by inserting the waste tank. But there is missing something (I don't know the reason, if dropped out, or...) that is over hole about 5mm. Fix this missing distance with small wire (e.g. chipped proper rounded part of paper clip) fitted into the hole. Carefully check if the wire is not big too much, not to brake the arm. Works until now.

My printer show this message " waste toner tank full/ not install" so I cannot use the printer to print my task. What should I do?

The bottom left portion of the display gave
the error message:
Waste Toner Bottle 1 Almost Full. Please call service.
They were still able to print,
however this message would not go away.
Power down the printer using
the normal shutdown method.
Open the top front door.
Remove the cover directly below
the 4 toner cartridges.
The removable cover below the
toner cartridges is actually the Waste Toner Bottle.
Bring this to the dumpster.
There is a round, clear-plastic tab on the underside of the "bottle". Remove this.
Shake the bottle around over the dumpster.
Continue until all the toner has been removed.
Push the clear plastic tab back in place.
Wipe off all toner residue before putting it back into the printer.
Put the waste toner bottle back into place. Power on the Savin. Confirm the message no longer appears and that users are able to print.
