SOURCE: having trouble replacing waste toner receptacle on Canon imageRunner 3750

If the copier indicated to empty the waste toner you will have to reset in the counter in service mode. Press the additional functions key, the 2 & 8 keys at the same time, then the additional function key again. This should get you into service mode. If not depress the reset key and try again. Once there at the top right you will see counter. Depress it then you should see a menu and depress MISC. Depress WST-TNR, then depress "C" on keypad. Counter should go to all 0's. I think that the waste toner message displays at 250,000 copies made.

SOURCE: Waste toner dumping

Hello lb. I promise you I can help you. I could go into overwhelming detail as to the reasons your copier has indicated to you that the waste toner bottle needs attention. I say this because your device can be programmed to either physically "look" at the condition of the waste toner container, or the device can use internal counters that are usual quite accurate. Since these "counters" reflect the wear on the drum (important s*&^%) they can be extremely cost effective as it considers YOUR usage compared to the average joe. My point is, the waste toner area of your machine was never truly meant to be dumped as it is a part of a cartridge. It can be done but odds of total success are not good and we still are looking at significant wear on other major components waiting to give you grief soon. A drum unit for your machine consists of a huge number of critical items and is good for about 20,000 copies. It costs +/- $100. Far less than a service call, and the drum gets replaced,again many other components, and the waste toner. Or you can remove the drum/development unit, find the semi clear plastic plug and remove it,vacuum it out or pour it out. Locate the the photo sensor inside this non-serviceable unit and clean it with canned air as you stand ouside and face away from the wind. Hmmmmmmmmm. I am not being a smartass, just trying to minimize your out of pocket costs and frustration. Good luck and take care. ........................SPINAL

SOURCE: Canon iR6570 waste toner

look on the right rear of the machine, there should be a door with 2-4 screws. A big white plastic container should be there, remove dump toner and seal bag, replace. Make sure it is sitting properly, it uses a weight system.

SOURCE: Canon imageRUNNER 2020 alternates between displaying Error Code E019 and saying "Waste Toner Full".

hi you have a waste toner error code, the waste toner is apart of the drum unit in these machines so you will need to order a new drum unit for it.
easiest way to fix the problem.

Black copies are coming out faded. How do I fix this? I have already changed the toner and the waste toner bucket.

Does this happen when you print? Not Copy. Does the internal prints come out OK configuration page, meter count, etc.? Did you change the drum unit? Or is the drum unit and toner cartridge one in the same, drum would be blue or green, puts the image on the paper so be careful to not touch it. waste bucket really not a player in this situation.

this is error for waste toner full detection.

So, you need to empty the waste toner box. It is located in front side of copier, beneath the copier cover, right side of toner inlets. To reach it you need to remove plastic cover above the box.

For service manual

Hope that helps!

I need to reset the waste toner until I receive a replacement for my ImageRunner C5051, is that possible?

This is incorrect. You can manually empty the waste. Make sure you remove the small clear plastic part that is on the side and empty it as well (this is what the sensor looks at to tell the macine it is full)

Our Canon ImageRunner 400S says to replace the waste toner container. However, I can't find in the manual how to do that.

Waste toner is located in drum unit, look for any cork on drum unit assy, open it, and empty waste toner.
