Reset Waste Toner in a Brother


  1. Remove the full waste toner box per manual.
  2. Wear breathing protection as there will be toner dust in the air.
  3. Place flat in a work area and remove the 6 screws retaining the black box cover and carefully remove cover with box still flat on the work area. Be careful, the box is full of waste toner powder.
  4. Dispose of the waste toner by tipping into waste container, being careful not to inhale the powder. Use a blower or vacuum to remove final traces of waste toner from the box and clean all surfaces with a clean cloth.
  5. Place the box flat on the bench and inspect the clear sight-glass at the front. Inside will be a black flag which should be down on the bottom of the sight glass. If not, there is still waste toner in the front of the box which needs to be shaken or blown out.
  6. Replace the cover and 6 screws and replace the waste toner box in the printer.
  7. If error message still says replace waste toner box, then you need to check the sight glass again. The flag must be horizontal at the bottom of the glass or it is not completely empty.

Hl3040cn prints a black stripe down the page despite the drum being cleaned as advised by Brother.Peter


Hi

3 issues might be the problem.

1. The toner waste compartment is full. You need to clean the toner waste compartment located in the cartridge itself.

2. Roller drum inside the cartridge have lines normally starts on both ends of the drum. This due to bulky printing. Check and replace this parts inside the toner cartridge. Manual cleaning is not advisable because the result will still the same. If you have only toner cartridge, use the roller drum and replace in place of it.

3. Faulty Toner Cartridge that cause leaking the toner powder. If you purchase remanufactured toner cartridge or you refill the toner cartridge. It tends to worn out the parts. Normally starts as roller drum and follows with the other parts. Replace new original Toner Cartridge. When you refill the toner cartridge, you need to clean the waste compartment as well as it will later be full and overflow.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

I have an MFC Brother printer and I cant copy or print...it says waste toner full??? How do I fix this problem?


What model MFC Brother Printer do you have? The waste toner is left over toner from each print or copy that isn't used. It collects in a different spot in each printer. Usually the waste toner container is with the regular toner cartridge. The printer is able to detect when the waste toner is full by a light sensor in or near that container. Sometimes excess toner collects on the sensor itself and causes it to think the waste toner is full when it actually isn't. Try finding the waste toner container and empty it or replace it. clean the sensor that is on or near the container. it is likely a small black plastic piece that has 2 or 3 small wires coming from it. The model of printer will help to identify where the container is.

What is a waste toner box. what does it do and


like the name suggest, it collects waste toner. Any toner that is left over from the print process is waste toner. Once the waste toner bottle is full, the printer will stop working until You have replaced it with an empty waste toner bottle. So in short, if it is telling u to get a new one, get one or the other option is to empty it yourself which is very messy and if u dont clean the bottle of all toner dust, may not even work.

Status red and amber Toner light


This problem you are getting is to replace the toner cartridge. Have you recently changed the drum unit as well. If so exchange it back to the other one.

After installing new toner or full toner cartridge and removing the yellow plastic cover press the go button this should start the printer on a cycle and add the toner. If this doesn't work then the toner sensor has malfunctioned and will need replacing. This will in turn out way the cost of a new machine.

Hope this helps and not too late for you.

Thanks Jason

The printer asks for waste toner to be replaced


your printer has waste toner container in it, and it's full. it's needs to be replaced.

if you have a new waste toner container and it's still saying needs replacement, the sensors on each side needs to be cleaned off.

Brother 1440 Printer Black streak - is it Drum or Toner?


perform a halfway test by printing something with a full page of letters or graphics and try and stop the printer before the print actually gets to the fuser but has the toner on it from the toner cartridge, remove carefully as the toner won't be melted into the paper and see if the defect is showing up on there. If it is then its your toner and if not then it's your fuser...hope this helps please leave feedback...
