My cl2000n reads toner is low, why do I want to buy a bottle of toner rather than a toner cartridge? (One lady from Ricoh told me to get the toner bottle). I also don't have the manual and have never added toner to a printer in my life. thanks. liz

You could check if the contacts on the toner cartridge and in he printer are clean and shiny. Perhaps just a bit of glue or a scrap of plastic is on a contact, making it impossible for the printer to read the status.
Hi, the chip on those toner bottles stores information about how much toner is left, so once that chip registers an empty toner bottle, it won't work even if you attach it to a new toner bottle. You'll need the chip from a new toner bottle, or one that hasn't registered no toner.
if you got the seals of of the new cartridge, then sometimes opening and closing the toner door will help the indicator go away. I have 2 of these and sometimes it takes a bit for the toner to work it's way into the system.
The waste toner bottle is just a bottle that the old unused toner falls into. It is located on the right side of your printer. Open the right side door, and the waste toner bottle (which is wide and flat) is in plain view taking up the bottom half of view. It has a sliding lock on top. Slide the lock to 'unlock' and remove it. Replacing it is easy - just reverse and make sure to lock.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
