Question about Samsung CLP-500N Laser Printer
This messages referes to the waste toner being full or not installed.
Manufactures try to stop you from emptying the container by having a small "window" that the printer looks through, when you empty the toner there will still be some toner on this window, so the printer will still believe that it is full.
a way around this is to wash the container out with water (do not use hot water as this will melt the toner). i also wouldn't recommend pouring the water & toner down the sink as this could be breaking local laws.

The sensor itself weren´t dirty, but plastics in waste toner tank was bit dusty and sensor couldn´t read through it. So I modded waste toner tank a bit with a knife (took the part away which the sensor uses when reading if it is full or not). And works again beautifullu.
All I have to do know is to take care of waste toner tank manually i.e. checking it every now and then and when it becomes full I throw it away.
