Kyocera EP470DN - Has Toner - Won't Print

My Kyocera EP470DN has a new toner cartridge; the waste toner box is empty; and, the printer only prints out a couple of very faint characters. There are no error codes. I tried increasing the print density from the factory default of 3 to 4, but it made no difference. Please help.

    Ivan, thanks for the response. Actually, I did take out the toner cartridge and shook it very hard numerous times to verfiy there was toner inside, then before reinserting the cartridge, I shook it gently to level out the toner inside. I also checked the roller and it is evenly covered with toner. I also cleaned and wiped off any toner residue under the container that holds the toner cartridge; I checked the plastic toner waste container but it is clear of any toner; and, I cleaned and wiped off the sensor inside the waste compartment. I would like to stress that there are no error codes displayed on the LCD screen. In the past, when the toner waste container was full, I would get an error message. If the toner cartridge is near empty, I also was getting a warning mesage on the LCD screen. Now, again, there are no error messages. I'm stumped.

MHHH, it seems as if its empty but it might be that it has humidified. Take out the toner and shake it side ways without compassion, then you slow down and shake it gently a couple of times then install it at the drum. You can also verify if this is true if you take out the toner and watch the roller and see if its loaded with toner. If it looks shinny with almost no toner it what I just exposed. Luck

Remove the developer and toner cartridge from the front of your unit. This will allow you to take out your drum where your waste toner box is. Once you have your drum with your waste toner box make sure to detach the waste toner box from the drum. Take a damp linen free cloth and wipe down the inside of the drum unit where your waste toner box goes in. Now take your waste toner box and make sure to secure the waste toner box really well to the drum. This has to be in very tight or else the printer will not think that there is a toner box attached the drum and this error will continue to appear. Important thing is to make sure that the toner box is attached really well to the drum unit.

SOURCE: My Kyocera FS1020D won't print. The light says i need new toner

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Waste toner gets full before toner runs out


Actually, the waste toner should get full sometime before the regular toner runs out in laser printers that have several toner cartridges compared to the single waste toner reservoir.

You can dump the toner reservoir out and avoid buying the empty waste toner 'reservoir.'

I did this on my Brother Laser printer and saved about $30 or so for an empty plastic waste toner bottle or jar.

If this is the way the Kyocera-4020DN is, then I would put the waste toner, which is just that, waste, and put it into a plastic zip loc storage bag and throw it away. Don't breath the toner.

Good luck on this repair.

Check waste toner box


We have a Kyocera Mita FS-3820N and sometimes when the toner box message does not go away, even after emptying the box, we simply hit it a few times in the area of the box. Works every time!

Self test says 'check waste toner box'


It looks your waste toner box is full. Waste toner box collects toner drawn during printing. You have to remove waste toner bottle and empty it.

Follow the instructions to clean up toner bottle

Emptying waste tone cartridge


You need to replace the waste toner bottle (packaged with a new toner cartridge) you can't just empty it. There is a photo sensor that "reads" through a window of the waste bottle. The sensor could be dirty. Clean the slits with a q-tip.
