Re: How do I change the waste toner bottle?
The waist sump is in the Drum Unit.
If the messege says to replace sump unit, either the drum unit has to be replace(Copy Cartrige) or, if you wish to do this,
remove the copy cartridge and remove the front black cover with the small rectangular metal cover. I beleive they are 3 - 5.5 mm black bolts.
On the back there is a black knob that has to be rotated, to swing the drum out. On the front there is a brass spacer that has to be removed.
Pull it off and pull out the drum. the top of the drum has to come off and the bottle comes out. Vacume out the toner into a waist bag, or dump the toner in a plastic bag. its your choice.
If not buy a new drum unit.
The machine needs to be reset in the maintaince area of the menu.if you cannot find it, the machine will come up with the replace waist sump.
You will need to find this, or call Xerox to have a service repair person enter diagnostics to remove it from the machine.

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....
not a solution - but a problem... i emptied the toner waste bottle in my MPW2400 and a new error message appears...says there is no toner and it keeps dumping toner from the new cartridge until it is coming out of every orifice of the machine. What is that about?
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
Remove the small cover on the lower left hand side( one screw only) and remove the waste toner bottle and emptied it ensure that bottle neck is not clouded with toner otherwise even the bottle is empty still it will detect waste toner is full .hope this will help
I am not familiar with this model but usually Canon waste bottle has:
1. Check if the waste toner botlle has some clear portion near the neck, (as in IRC3200) or other part of the bottle ,even the waste toner was removed but if this portion is still clouded by toner the sensor will still detect the waste is full
2. If the situation is not like this some Canon Ir machine needs to reset waste toner counter in the service program mode even the waste toner bottle was emptied
to change the waste toner on your IR 5055, stand directly in front of machine and look on the right hand side of it where the power switch is a black button on right hand sdie at the back and you will see 4 screws and a metal plate that will come off the waste toner bottle is in there just empty it out and refit to machine all will work, now on your IRC3170 just undo front door and you will see a clear bottle just undo the black screw and take out the bottle and you will see a couple of little clear windows in the bottle make sure you take them out and clean them before you emtpy the bottle, this is where the machines shines a light through it to tell if the bottle is full or not so make sure you have them clean. refit the bottle and all will be ok
