Re: Screen Warnings

It means the waste toner bottle is nearly full and needs replacing soon. Here is the link to the printer support page; Download the user manual/guide. Check page 65 of the manual (page 73 of the pdf file) for instructions on how to replace. Be aware of the safety instructions - toner is very toxic. It is not worth trying to empty the bottle rather than replace it, and most likely illegal. Hope this helps :)

Canon photocopier iR2016 displaying "waste toner full" on screen. How do I fix this?

Hi there you can empty the waste toner box wich is located inside drum unit.

The procedure is next:

open front cover and leftsideway door
release the blue handle above the drum unit
pull out the drum unit
on top of drum unit, near handle is located plastic grey colored cork
remove it and by means of vacume cleaner clean the vaste toner.

Note that if you flip out the drum unit and try to empty waste toner it could be messy and the toner can get into charge roller or on drum cleaning blade and then you need to change it completly.

hope that hepls
