Wast Toner Box is filling up quickly.

We have now replaced the waste toner box 4 times this week and the last time we noticed different layers of colors in the box. Normally the waste toner is a gray-black color.

You say there are colors in the box but the 3800 is not a color printer. If it is one of the desktop color printers there is a setting change that may help. It is a service mode setting called "T7". If you print documents that don't use much toner this setting will reduce what is dumped in the bottle during operation. If you call the Kyocera End User Help Desk they can remote in and make the change if they think it will help. 800-255-6482

Reset wast toner box on 9970cdw

Remove the full waste toner box per manual. Wear breathing protection as there will be toner dust in the air. Place flat in a work area and remove the 6 screws retaining the black box cover and carefully remove cover with box still flat on the work area. Be careful, the box is full of waste toner powder. Dispose of the waste toner by tipping into waste container, being careful not to inhale the powder. Use a blower or vacuum to remove final traces of waste toner from the box and clean all surfaces with a clean cloth. Place the box flat on bench to inspect the clear sight-glass at the front. Inside will be a black flag which should be down on the bottom of the sight glass. If not, there is still waste toner in the front of the box which needs to be shaken or blown out. Replace the cover and 6 screws and replace the waste toner box in the printer. If error message still says replace waste toner box, then you need to check the sight glass again. The flag must be horizontal at the bottom of the glass or it is not completely empty.

Stupid question but make sure that there is nothing on the glass surface underneath your document feeder. Be sure to get the main glass clean as well as the little strip of glass to the left. If this didn't fix your problem than you need to do a little more cleaning.

When was the last time you changed the toner? In the toner box you should have gotten a small grayish blue box with a plastic top and felt head. There should have been instructions on how to use this little cleaning tool but what you need to do is to remove the waste toner bottle being very careful not to spill the waste toner all over yourself. Before you do anything else you should gently take out the green square handle. Now behind the space where the waste toner bottle is located you will notice a small hole that fits the little blue box minus the cap. Gently place the blue box (peg first) into the hole (should only fit one way but the felt tip should point to the right) and gently move the green handle back and forth 3 to 4 times. Take the blue box out and throw away, put the green handle back in and than replace the waste toner bottle.

If you don't have the little blue box than call the company you got your copier from, they should be able to help you.

Hope this helps.
