Re: Lanier Copy Machine 3635
Is this a small table top model? They usually do not have a waste bottle. The waste toner accumulates is the drum housing Where hopefully the change drum warning will come on before the waste toner fills up and causes poor copies. I have taken the drum asm apart and vacuumed the toner out.

The waste toner bottle is full. You can empty it into a trash bag but beware it is very messy. The waste toner door is on the rear right hand side of the machine. Remove the white bottle and carefully empty it out, then put the bottle back into the machine.
The C25 stores toner in a waste toner container. On the front of that container there is rectangular clear window that fits into a sensor when installed into machine. The sensor passes a beam of light through that window. When the bottle is full there is toner inside that clear plastic window which stops the light from making it through the window and the machine will tell you the waste toner is full. Just dumping the container out will not clear that window and by putting it back in the machine you will get the same toner full message. If you are going to try to reuse that container you will have remove the black plastic cover that is glued to the container above the clear plastic. Then use something like a Qtip to clean all the toner off of that clear window(much easier and faster to just replace in with a new container). if you still get the waste toner full message after you install it then remove it and wipe off the sensor that the clear window sits in. This will clear the message and you can continue your copy job.
U14 is a user code for waste toner full.
Open front cover and you will see a clear plastic bottle at the bottom of the machine; lift this out and dispose carefully of waste toner (do not reuse). When fitting back into machine, make sure that inside of bottle is clean as the detection sensor looks through the bottle to see if it is empty and if toner is covering inside of bottle, the message will remain.
Hello sir; I believed you talking about LD045, am I right? In this model it doesn't have waste toner bottle, the only place you can clean is imaging transfer unit, after you cleanup the message will be disappear.
A common mistake is that people think that the waste toner needs to be emptied and instead the toner needs to be replaced --- and vice versa. Check to make sure that the toner bottle is not empty. Also, if you made copies that took ( used ) more toner then the machine was able to replenish, the machine has not had a chance to catch up. Place a white sheet of paper on the platen glass and make blank white copies. You may only be able to get 1-2 copies at first but as the device catches up with the toner replenish you should be able to make more. The blank copies you make -- do NOT put that paper right back into the machine. Lay it flat and let it cool, this will help prevent unwanted jamming due to heat build up in the paper. IF you have good amount of new toner in the machine, gently tap the front line ( or rear line) that feeds the used toner into the waste bottle. Sometimes the waste toner will clog and back up into the machine giving false 'waste toner full' message.
The used toner bottle is not actually a bottle at all. Not sure what you emptied, but it sounds like the actual toner bottle itself. The waste toner is contained with in the transfer belt unit. When you open the right side cover, this is the unit that is attached to the door. It is a brown belt that provides transfer of the image to the drum and separates the paper from the drum. Remove this unit by locating the release levers on either side of the transfer unit (push both of them towards the machine). After removing, you will need to actually take the belt unit off of the transfer unit. To do this, remove the two tension springs on either side, and then take a small flat bladed scredriver and release the clips that hold it down (you will see when you get started). Once you get it off, you will see the long blade that actually scrapes the toner off the belt. Dump the waste toner out this end. You will need to shake it pretty hard. A better (and cleaner) option is to vaccum it out using the crevace tool on you vac. Just make sure you completely empty it. Now....do everything in reverse.
Let's use standing at the front of the copier as if you were making a copy as a reference. The waste toner bottle at the right rear bottom corner. I'm just guessing the dimensions on the panel that covers it, but I'm thinking 5" x 18"......and is held in place by 2 srcews. Remove that cover and you will see the rather ample waste toner bottle. This machine and its brethren in the newer mid volume machines use an arbitrary value of 250K copies as a signal to show the waste toner almost full message in the display. This is the only criterai used is the meter. I have yet to see a machine where the waste toner bottle was past half full at 250k. But since the copier is using the meter to determine when the bottle needs to emptied, it also means that if you dont reset the counter for the waste toner bottle you will get an E-19 (waste toner bottle full error) even if it is not even close to being full. If you are familliar with sevice mode you can reset the counter, and MUST do so whether you empty the bottle or not in order to make the machine happy again. Press additional functions, then the 2 and 8 together, then additional functions. Press the"copier" block. Then the top right tab on the screen that says "counter" press it. Then press "misc", then press "WASTE TNR". You will notice a counter to the right of this item which reflects the last time the waste toner bottle had been "attended" to.Once you have selected "WASTE-TNR" and it is highlit press the number 0 on the 9 keypad. Then press the "ok" tab at the lower right corner of the display. You should see the counter reset , and now everone can smile. Press reset till you return to the main screen and make another 250,000 copies. Have a good day! ............SPINAL.............
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.
