When this happened, I took the tank out and shook it out into a garbage can (do this outside and be very careful not to breathe the dust). I then took a shop vac and held the hose at the opening while blowing compressed air into the tank. Wiggle the air nozzle around and you'll get out 99% of the toner. Pay extra attention to the sensor optics (plastic bulges on the sides of the tank).These need to be clean since the printer knows when the tank is full because the toner blocks light shining from one side of the tank to the other

Reinstall the tank and be sure it is fully inserted. If they printer is still on, turn it OFF. Close the front door of the machine and turn it back on.

Continue printing.

CLX 3160 waste toner tank error message


Empting the waste toner tank does not always fix this problem. Samsung shines a light through the tank with a photo receptor on the other side. If it the photo receptor does not see enough light, it will trigger the replace waste tank message.
You can fix this by trying to clean the clear window portion of the tank with a q-tip. This is difficult to do since there are parts of this window which is hard to clean with a q-tip.
Or you could wash it out with soapy water until the window is clear of toner. Allow the tank to dry and reinstall.

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.

Easily Solved! I've got the the Samung CLX-2160 and I have was getting the same message "Replace/install Waste Toner Tank". The first thing I asked myself was, what is the 'Waste Toner Tank'? After typing in into google, I realised that the 'Waste Toner Tank' is the grey colored part located to the left (If you're facing it) of the toners barrel. So all you need to do is take the Waste Tone Tank out, shake out all the waste tone from it and replace it. Your printer will be up and running like the first time!!!
