    is this a 350e or 350s?

    There is a toner waste bottle in these units that need to be emptied. On the 350e it is on the left behind the door next to the paper trays. Open the drawer and about the middle you will see the waste toner bottle.

    Let me know if this is your model.

I believe it say "empty waste toner". The waste toner is located within the transfer belt unit, which is the brown belt on the inside of the left cover when you open it.
You will see on the left side (towards front of copier) a small brown lever to release the belt assembly. Lift up the lever, then lift the belt unit from the top and pull out.
This gets pretty messy, so be prepared.........
to remove the belt from the housing, remove the 2 springs on the left and right sides, this will allow the belt unit to swing upward once you release the black locking tab on one end (the NON-GEARED end i believe)
Remove the belt and DO NOT tip the unit or you'll really have a mess. Mind the gear on the end, because it will simply slide off. Try to touch the belt as little as possible and be careful not to damage it.
You'll now see a rubber blade, and underneath that is the storage compartment for waste toner. Get a large plastic bag, and start dumping...there is a lot in here and it will be very messy, so be careful, and consider using some gloves.
once emptied. Clean unit with DRY rags, reassemble, and reinstall.
That should do it.

Please rate my solution :)

How do i change the toner colection bottle for a Ricoh aficio 350 copier?

There is no toner collection bottle for the 350, used toner is stored in the transfer belt unit. It must be pulled from the machine disassembled then empty used toner reassemble and put back in machine, a counter must also be reset, cant remember which sp code this is though.

Used Toner Bottle Full Ricoh Aficio 1035P

The used toner is stored in the Transfer Belt assembly on the right door that you open to remove a jam. Remove one spring on each side and release the catch while gently lifting up on the belt and roller assembly. It swings 90 degrees up from the rest of the assembly. There are 6 screws that hold a cover on the lower assembly. remove it and dump the waste toner. *** VERY MESSY*** have a vac on hand. Not a shop vac unless you want toner clouds floating around the office. If the six screws aren't present, dump the toner out of the **** between the mylar-rubber blade and the lower assembly. once this is done, the message will clear.

Ricoh Aficio SP C410DN "set toner cartridge correctly"

It sounds like the part the toner bottle slides under to lock in place is broken. you could try and fold some paper and tape it to the toner to hold it down.
