The clean way - use a shop vac to **** it out. But **** out of the bottom hole. I originally vacuumed out of the top hole and and the resulting residue resulted in the full error. I went back to the shop vac and cleaned up the bin by vacuuming out of the bottom hole and voila - success.

Cheers

You just open the front door, pull the bottle off, and empty it. Be aware, though, that this is one of the messiest procedures that you will ever do. The toner is so fine and dusty that it spreads everywhere when you dump it and it is vey hard to clean up. I put on plastic gloves, took it outside, put a large ziplock bag inside a tall garbage bag, and sealed this around my wrist as well as I could before dumping the toner. I still had a real mess. If I had not had a couple of the "magnetic" toner clean-up cloths sent with recharge kits, I would have been hard-put to clean up the bottle well enough to use it. And, it still took me a couple of days to clean my hands. A new bottle simplifies this. You just take off the old one, put in a plug, and discard it. Costs $30-40 but may be worth it.

I can not waite for a waste container to ship. Can I empty the waste container on the Minalta 2300dl?


Yes, but take it outside first! Prise the unit off the housing, taking care NOT to spill dust. In a dust bin, empty the bottle. Before you reinstate it, clean the recessed lug on the rear, as the printer has an optical light or something that shines through the lug. If its dirty, the printer will thunk it's still full. No need to buy new bottle...I haven't!

Waste tonner tank


The waste toner container is inside the front cover at the bottom right. If you work for a business you should purchase a new one. If not you may be able to empty it into a another container and seal it before putting into the bin.

As soon as you open the door on the right side of the unit the waste collection box is there. You will see it, it is the large strangely shaped item that extends from the middle top to the bottom of the unit.

Error mfessage: check wastt tonner bottle


Try a new bottle. I've seen where the there's enough old toner clining to the sides of the bottle that prevent the sensor from seeing through it. Of course the sensor and led may be covered with old toner. Get in there with a vacuum when the machines off and clean it out.

Panasonic DP-1810P Laser Copier


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.
