The printer started beeping saying check waste toner box. I checked and emptied the plastic bottle. I put back and it keeps beeping saying to check waste toner box. I have checked everything and it will not work now. Just beeps with the message to check waste toner box. Any suggestions?
Hi, moved my Kyocera FS 3830 and it now says check waste toner box.
Have replaced toner cartridge, recovery bottle, pulled cover off and
cleaned all surplus toner out of insides and under carriage. What
next? Where can I get a service manual. We are in Tanzania so no in
country support for Kyocera machines. Appreciate any help and step by

Typically you will need to replace the waste toner box. There is usually a difficult to access part of the bottle that is used by an optic sensor to tell when the box is full. Plus toner is very fine and you do not want it getting into the air. Toner will pass through the filter of most vacuums and go back into the air.
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 the bench and 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.
You have to empty out the waste toner bottle... The bottle is a milky white plastic and I believe it is right under the fuser unit. It should slid out toward you. Carefully dump the toner out of the bottle into a plastic garbage bag and re install the bottle and you are done....
Open the right side door. there at the bottom is a long plastic bottle full of waste toner. If you have no spare bottle then carefully (dont create dust) empty toner into a bin liner. Now tap the bottle on the table to allow any toner on the sides to fall back to the bottom. now refit and all should be well.
Hello, the error code for full waste toner is E019. To solve the problem, as you know, you need to clean/empty the waste toner box. To do these:
On left side way of copier, in lower left angle, there is plastic cover with one screw. Unscrew and remove the plastic cover, then pull out to remove waste toner box. Empty it! With piece of clothe, clean the "neck" of the bottle, because on round inserts on neck, is where the sensor reads the FULL or OK state. Put it back in and turn off and on the copier.
Check your waste toner box. At the side of the printer is a container for the extra toner to be stored. Everytime you change your cartridge you need to change the waste toner container. Carefully open side panel and remove waste toner bottle. There is a button you need to push do not force the bottle out.
Remove lid of new waste toner bottle and put into place and close side panel. Follow link for further details or use your setup guide that came with the printer on how to install the waste toner bottle. http://usa.kyoceramita.com/americas/jsp/upload/resource/15865/0/2000D-3900D-4000DMLIIR1.1.pdf
