    Had same error message. Must admit it was preceded by the Replace Waster Toner Bottle message (MORE CONSUMABLES, MORE COST!) which was displayed for couple weeks intermittently then stayed on permanently. I didnt get round to changing it and found I could continue to print by removing it altogether, but then got the Waste Motor Error message. My own fault, but you need it when you need it and you dont know using it will cause a problem. Call out from Samsung (£185) nearly as much as what I paid for it Jan-06.

The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.

Two different things here.

FIRST

Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Installed message

Normally this just means what it says.
The waste toner tank can be emptied and re-used, but often the 'sight window' used by the sensor to detect the waste toner level stays dirty and the sensor still can't 'see' that it is empty.

The sensor can fail and give this message even with a new waste toner tank.


SECOND

Continuing to use the printer with a full waste toner tank will have the waste toner 'backup' in the wase toner augers. This causes the waste toner motor to stall, or draw excessive current.
The cure often requires a new waste toner motor assembly.

As the service manual states
"Replace the waste toner tank immediately or the printer may be damaged"

The waste toner motor error can also happen after a transfer belt splits dumping toner everywhere inside the printer. Transfer belt splits usually happen after the Transfer unit continues to be used well beyond its rated 50,000 image life (NOT a good idea to reset the counter on this item). Later CLP-510 printers would not permit the resetting of the Transfer Unit counter in order to try to prevent this happening.

SOURCE: Waste Motor Error message on Samsung CLP-500

This error is caused by the Waste Toner Motor 'stalling' - usually as a result of the Waste Toner Full message being ignored for too long, and the waste system becomming overful.

Usually best to replace the Waste Toner Motor assembly.

They are for sale on auction websites from time to time.

I have an ir6570 giving me an error code e0013, e0004 please help


This is an error code dealing with the toner auger motor being bound up. Has the waste toner message been on for along time and the waste toner bottle not being emptied. Sometimes the waste toner counter has been reset several times without the bottle being emptied. This will cause the waste toner to back up in the auger mechanism. Thsi will have to be taken apart ( very tedious job ) and the toner removed from the tube. The auger spring and even some gears may have to be replaced. I've never had to replace the motor on any copier yet. Good Luck.

My Canon MP530 is giving 6A00 error message and alarm light is flashing along with copy button. i have replaced empty ink cartridges with new ones. Can anyone help, please?


Error code 6A00 indicates an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You need to replace sheet feed unit, logic board assy and purge unit to fix it. Before replacement of the logic board assy, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit when replacing the logic board assy.

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.

My Ricoh Afficio 2232C doesn't print and it gives me this message: "Functional problems within your computer. Turn operation on then off. If the error appears again, call service. SC 440-01."Several times...


A 440-1 is a black drum motor lock. The waste toner in the black pcu is backed up, more then likley. It is not easy to fix. You could replace the black pcu but it will happen again. The usual problem is oil in the main waste toner system. It clumps up the toner and clogs the part where all the waste toner comes together for entry into the waste toner bottle.
