Re: 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.

I am getting the Replace Waste Toner error on my Ricoh CL3000. I have already emptied and cleaned the waste container, and blew off the section of the printer I install the waste bottle onto, but I'm...

not a solution - but a problem... i emptied the toner waste bottle in my MPW2400 and a new error message appears...says there is no toner and it keeps dumping toner from the new cartridge until it is coming out of every orifice of the machine. What is that about?

Waste toner

You have to "tell" the printer that you have "emptied" the receptacle. Depending on the model of printer, you may either need to replace it, or use the controls on the printer to "logically" do a "reset" operation.

Waste toner disposal procedure

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.

We removed the waste toner bottle and it won't reset the error message

You will need to vacuum all the toner out as in the machine there is a sensor that looks through the waste tank and checks that it is clear. You can also wash the tank out then install it and you will not have the problem.

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.
