SOURCE: Waste Toner Full/ Not Install

Behind the little container for the waste toner there is a sensor that senses whether the toner basket is full or not. If the sensor itself is dirty, it can give a false reading. First try cleaning out the area under the container to see if the switch works. Also make sure the container is clean, because the sensor works by sight, so if it looks full because it's dirty, it will give a false reading. I have heard of people disabling that sensor in various ways, but that can get dangerous to the printer. I can't recall the details on that exact model, but I believe there is a diagnostic of some sort that can test that sensor to make sure it works right to begin with.

SOURCE: waste toner tank

A few things can cause this.

The way the printer determines whether the waste tank is full is via 2 optical sensors, one on either side of the tank. You'll see a rounded bulge on one end of the tank - the sensors are on either side of that, when the tank is installed. Under normal operation, light passes through that and the printer reads it as meaning the tank is not full, until the tank fills far enough to fill that bulge, and thus block light and give a tank full reading.

If the tank gets too dirty, not enough light passes through and it gives false tank full readings. So the first thing to try is cleaning the tank with soap and water. Make sure that area is as clear as possible.

If that doesn't work, it has also been reported that the sensors themselves are unreliable. I am told Samsung will replace the sensor for free if it's been less than 3 years. If you call them, insist that it is the sensor that is the problem, or they will try to get you to replace the waste bin, at your expense, first: 1-800-726-7864.

Alternatively, you can remove the sensor from one side, and reattach it to the other side - putting the two sensors in contact so that they always read an empty waste tank. Do this at your own risk, however, as you will have to check the tank regularly and make sure it doesn't overflow. Doing this bypasses the sensor, so there is no longer any warning if your tank is overflowing.

Hope some of that helps you.

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.

SOURCE: MESSAGE REPLACE/ INSTALL TONER WASTE TANK EVEN THOGHT I HAVE REPLACE IT ON A SAMSUNG CLX-3160 FN


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.

Replace new toner and displeyd mesages "chesk waste toner box". i remove waste toner box and cleaned waste toner in drum unit. no result...


the top of the waste toner container must be cleaned 100% from the toner because it should be a light sensor that has to pass through it , if its spoiled with toner the light cannot pass through it ,so i recommend you to empty the waste toner container first and wash it with water and drying it well before using it again.

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.

When I go to print it starts beeping and telling me to check waste toner box?


The waste toner box is located on the right hand side of the printer. There is a door/cover that opens up on the right side. It is a milky white plastic container. Check to make sure it is there and installed properly and the door is fully closed. If all that is correct it my be full.

There should be a new waste toner container in the toner box (along with a toner). The toner and waste toner are normally replaced at the same time.

If you don't have a new waste toner container you can tray emptying the one that is in the printer BUT be very careful. The toner is a fine powder and can get all over if spilled. If you ever spill toner never use water or any other liquid to try and clean it, that will just turn it to a liquid ink.Brush it off your cloths and vacuum it up.

If you do try and empty the container and the machine continues to tell you it needs to be replaced it can be because there is still toner on the inside of the toner container and the sensor is seeing it there.

I hope this is helpful,
Shawn

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

Open your user manual.

--- above from manual, following is my paraphrasing due to lack of pictures ---
4. remove the container cap from the back side and cap the opening

5. take the new waste container out of its package

6. install the new waste toner container.

___________
You may wish to TRY EMPTYING the waste toner, but you will find toner is the messiest and possibly dangerous (inhallation, etc) stuff you've worked with. it is an extremely find powder and can cause an awful mess and is best disposed of by capping and replacing the container with a new one (shop around to find them).

DO NOT attempt to vacuum up toner - just my personal opinion - I suspect many vacuums may not have fine enough "bags" to capture this intentionally very fine dust. BUT Toner vacuums do exist and some "may" work.

Waste tonner tank


The waste toner container is inside the front cover at the bottom right. If you work for a business you should purchase a new one. If not you may be able to empty it into a another container and seal it before putting into the bin.
