Fix an error message on the Ricoh Aficio 1224c that says 'used toner bottle full'? We have emptied the used toner bottle but the error message persists. What is the best way to fix this?

Check the waste bottle to see if there is a chip mounted on it somewhere. If not see if there is an optical sensor or clear window. If there is a chip it will need to be replaced or a new unit used. If there is a window or optical sensor you should be able to remove it, clean it out, and replace it. These are often the last part to fill with toner and create a light path block.

Used Toner Bottle Full Ricoh Aficio 1035P

The used toner is stored in the Transfer Belt assembly on the right door that you open to remove a jam. Remove one spring on each side and release the catch while gently lifting up on the belt and roller assembly. It swings 90 degrees up from the rest of the assembly. There are 6 screws that hold a cover on the lower assembly. remove it and dump the waste toner. *** VERY MESSY*** have a vac on hand. Not a shop vac unless you want toner clouds floating around the office. If the six screws aren't present, dump the toner out of the **** between the mylar-rubber blade and the lower assembly. once this is done, the message will clear.

How to reset waster toner bottle full Xerox 3535

Here's what I did.

Emptied the waste toner cartridge. Left it out of the machine. Held the microswitch (located to the right of the optical sensors) in the "cartridge in" position with a paperclip. Printed one document. Inserted the waste toner cartridge. Error now gone!

Ricoh 1018d won't add toner after installing toner bottle.

the part numbers are different for each toner from ricoh, Lanier, Savin and Gestetner. From what I recall is the bottles are different, check the old bottle vs new. Also if the machine had run very low you may have to open and close the fron cover several times, this intiates a toner feed program.

We removed the waste toner bottle and it won't reset the error message

You will need to vacuum all the toner out as in the machine there is a sensor that looks through the waste tank and checks that it is clear. You can also wash the tank out then install it and you will not have the problem.

Thanks J
