Question about Ricoh Office Equipment & Supplies
Savin 9935 toner waste near full. Where is the waste disposal located so I can vacuum out. Thanks Lawrence.
If you can locate the imaging drum unit, the ink is usually stored inside. The imaging drum has a roller with green film over it (this part may not be exposed), which is light sensitive, don't leave it in a bright area for long periods of time, or you may shorten the drum's lifetime.
You'll may have to remove the green roller (is sometimes a dark-blue or black), or some other parts, in order to find a grate. This grate is usually where the ink is dumped, though the design may differ depending on the model. Also, be careful when taking apart your drum, as it is filled with powdered ink, and if you turn it the wrong way, it will spill, and it is very very messy. If you're in an appropriate cleaning area, however, this may be a good way to locate where your ink is stored.
I'm not particularly familiar with Ricoh products, but that is how most laser-printer technology works.

The bottom left portion of the display gave
the error message:
Waste Toner Bottle 1 Almost Full. Please call service.
They were still able to print,
however this message would not go away.
Power down the printer using
the normal shutdown method.
Open the top front door.
Remove the cover directly below
the 4 toner cartridges.
The removable cover below the
toner cartridges is actually the Waste Toner Bottle.
Bring this to the dumpster.
There is a round, clear-plastic tab on the underside of the "bottle". Remove this.
Shake the bottle around over the dumpster.
Continue until all the toner has been removed.
Push the clear plastic tab back in place.
Wipe off all toner residue before putting it back into the printer.
Put the waste toner bottle back into place. Power on the Savin. Confirm the message no longer appears and that users are able to print.
