SOURCE: Waste Toner Full/ Not Install

Behind the little container for the waste toner there is a sensor that senses whether the toner basket is full or not. If the sensor itself is dirty, it can give a false reading. First try cleaning out the area under the container to see if the switch works. Also make sure the container is clean, because the sensor works by sight, so if it looks full because it's dirty, it will give a false reading. I have heard of people disabling that sensor in various ways, but that can get dangerous to the printer. I can't recall the details on that exact model, but I believe there is a diagnostic of some sort that can test that sensor to make sure it works right to begin with.

SOURCE: Ricoh CL3000 Laser Replace Waste toner

Couple of things to try: - If you just emptied the waste cartridge then you have to take the bottle back out and clean the insides as well. The sensor sees the toner on the walls and still thinks it?s full. FYI as typical the manufacturer recommends replacing the bottle with a brand new one. - If not that then you may have toner covering the optical sensor. Try blowing the area where the waste bottle attaches to the printer with canned air. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

SOURCE: waste toner tank full/not install keep displaying

The sensor for the waste toner tank is dirty or defective. The toner sensor is on the right as you look at the panel just below the liquid crystal display. There is a bump in the clear plastic just below the circular right vent port, that's where the used toner pours in. When you clean out the toner cartridge there is some residue left that makes the sensor think it's still full. Take a piece of paper towel and a small screwdriver (I'm told a bent coat hanger will work, too) and clean the inside of the sensor window inside the used toner cartridge (w/ access through the toner port). It looks like a little raised groove on the right. Just wipe it until it's clear on the inside. The sensor can now see through the window and you should be okay. Otherwise, the sensor may need to be replaced by an authorized Samsung technician. Let me know how it works out!

What is ar407 toner weaste problum in machine and salve


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.

Hi, I have kyocera km c850D. Please could you explain why machine keeps saying replace waste toner box although it is quite empty. please advise if tere are any other parts of the machine to clean or...


Are you using a new waste toner container or did you empty the one that was already in the machine?

The machine uses a sensor that looks at the container to determine if it is full of waste toner. If there is toner on the inside sides of the container were it looks for toner it will indicate that it needs to be replaced even if you have emptied the toner out.

It is a good practice to replace the waste toner container with a new one, that is the way the machine is meant to be used.

If you have correctly installed a new waste toner container and the message hasn't cleared you may have a faulty sensor.

I hope this information is helpful,
Shawn

Can I fix waste toner fill box is full by pulling it out and emptying then putting back in. Workio 2010


The waste toner bottle can be emptied but you must clean it out with COLD water after you have emptied it...NOT HOT.
The machine "looks thro" the neck of the bottle to tell if its empty or full so if you empty the bottle and put it back on "dirty" then the copier might still think its full!!

I dispose of toner and still keep getting messages


I assume when you say you dispose of toner you are emptying out the waste toner bottle and putting it back in the machine. if so here's your problem.
There is a sensor, mounted to the copier, just behind the waste toner bottle (on the upper righthand side). This sensor shoots a beam of light through a small portion of the waste bottle - if the beam is not received on the other side then the copier thinks the waste bottle is full. NOW...even if you have emptied it the interior of the bottle may still be dirty/black enough (leftover residue) to stop the beam from making it through the bottle - this gives you the message. You will need to put in a new bottle.

I have Canon ir5075 and it asks me to change waste bottle. I empty the bottle. But do not know how to tell the printer that it is empty.


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

Panasonic DP-1810P Laser Copier


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.
