Question about Sharp Office Equipment & Supplies

On a MX-5111N, im getting a message saying to replace the waste toner container. I emptied the waste toner container, but the message was still there. so I replaced it with a new one, but still received the same message. I've reset the machine multiple times and the message would go away, but would return after a few copy jobs

SOURCE: WASTE TONER CONTAINER

The Counter for the Waste Toner has to be reset. You go into service mode by selecting Additional Function, then depress the 2 & 8 at the same time then the Additional function key once again. You should see a screen that says copier, feeder, etc. Touch " Copier " and then you should see a new menu across the top of the screen. Far right is " Counter ". Select it and then go to " MISC ", you should see Web, Waste toner, etc. Select Waste toner and select the " C ( clear ) " key and the counter should reset to all zero's.. Select the reset key a couple of times to get out of service mode. You may want to see what's all in service mode to get an idea of what's there. When replaceing time change items most likely there will be a counter to reset in the same way. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Replace used toner message still on

You have to clean the small clear tape tab on the side of the bottle. The "eye" sees whether or not the bottle is full.

You can remove it, clean it and replace it. Use caution with it. I've actual made new ones using clear packing tap on top of a small piece of clear plating that I cut out to fit on there.

Good luck. Be sure to rate this if it helps.

SOURCE: a message is poping out saying replace the waste toner container.

I'm taking it that you have a IR-2270, not a IR-5570 correct??? The waste toner bottle is behind the front cover... It is in front of the drum unit. It is measured by the weight of the bottle, you just need to empty the bottle and you should be all set.... There is one screw in next to the toner bottle.... The other one is on the top left front corner of where the paper comes out. You have to push the front pannel to the left to remove the cover... Good Luck

SOURCE: replace waste toner container message

I have a CLX-2160N and have just emptied my own waste toner container. (Disclaimer: not sure how toxic or environmentally friendly this is).
Emptied carefully and thoroughly (fine dust). Immersed in bowl of warm soapy water, and vigorous shaking to get nice and clean.
Shook all water out well, and dried off as much as possible. Reinstalled. Turned printer back on. Hey presto - seems happy.

Reset Waste Toner


If your machine is displaying "replace waste toner container" then you can empty the waste toner box & reset the machine.
If you open the front door you will see a large black box & above this a small rectangular green button. Pressing this button will release the black box. The box will then lift upwards from the machine. At the bottom of the box you will see a round, clear plastic bung, remove the bung & empty the waste toner into a suitable bag or container. Once emptied, the bung can be re-fitted, the waste box can be inserted back into the machine. Locate the waste box into the 2 slots then push the waste box firmly back in place until it latches. Turn the machine off & on using the switch located to the left of the waste box in the bottom left corner of the inside of the front door. This should reset the machine. Be careful when disposing of the waste toner, it is flammable so do not dispose of in a fire. Hope this helps.
Dave.

My bizhub c25 waste toner was full so replaced and will not now reset.


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.

Changing waste container


The is no waste container on Phaser 6500. There is a "waste collection box" in every toner cartridge and the waste toner is discarded along with the empty cartridge. The is also a waste toner reservoir on the transfer belt and this one will be replaced along with the transfer belt.

If there is an error message saying, for example, "Waste Full Cyan Cartridge", it means the waste toner counter reached the replacement value for that color and you have to replace the corresponding cartridge. But the waste collection box is not really full.

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

Message: drum full of waste toner. replace drum cart. Does this mean it's time to replace the drum cartridge or do we just empty the overflow? Please e-mail april@happyvalleycc.org


Empty the container that holds the "waste" toner.
You may have to use the controls on the printer to say that you have emptied the container, because the printer is "estimating" (not actually "measuring") how full the container has become, based on the number of pages that have been printed.

If the copier is indicating to empty waste toner bottle do as previously described. Until you reset the copy counter for the waste toner you will still get the message. Go into service mode by depressing the additional function key, then 2 & 8 at the same time, then aditionall function key. Select copier, then at the top far left side select counter. I blieve the counter is under MISC as waste toner. Select waste toner, depress the " C " buton on the keypad and it should reset to all 0's.
