Re: Epson Aculaser C9100 Colour Laser printer

If you changed the bottle and rebooted the printer with no change, it could be that the sensor for the bottle may be faulty. Try cleaning it:

1. Remove the CASSETTE ASSY.
3. Remove the two screws (silver, flanged, 8mm) that secure the COVER over the sensors. Remove the Snap from the main unit Frame, and remove the sensor COVER.
4. Use a paper towel or cloth to clean the sensor area of any dust or toner

I've replaced the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle, but the display still says 'toner low' and 'waste toner near full'. It refuses to print, even with the old cartridges.

Then you mite want to clean the sensor that monitor the waster toner box pull out the waste toner box and look for the area that show clear plastic then look for those area of the machine and blow the old toner from those areas waste toner mite have gotten on the sensor saw they can not see the clear plastic and think that the waste toner cart is still full.

Epson C2600N waste toner collector full warning, after replacing the collector


You have emptied the waste toner bottle, now you have to tell the printer that you have done so. The waste toner collection system has a "latch" (electrical signal) that is tripped when the bottle is full. it may be a pressure sensitive switch under the bottle or a photo-sensor that senses the toner level when full. I don't know the sequence of events to "switch" that latch. Usually on the larger machines it is a series of keystrokes on the printer's keypad, starting with turning the machine off and holding down a series of keys while turning the machine on (known as the "maintenance mode". Once you are in the maintenance mode, you can "trip" that "latch" to let the copier know that the toner collection bottle has been emptied.

The waste toner cartridge has a transparent extrusion on the bottom, which fills with toner when the cartridge is full, but also if it is half full and shaken so that toner falls into this extrusion. If this happens, the only way to remove the toner is to open the cartridge by removing the tape, taking the two halves apart and shaking/blowing/hoovering it empty. You can stick them together again with ordinary sellotape.

Epson Aculaser Need to bring faulty cartridge to front

On the LCD display choose the 'Reset Menu' Then within that menu keep going through the options till you get to 'Change Toner M' (if it is Magenta). Once you select the appropriate 'Change Toner' it will rotate to offer the correct toner.

Imagerunner 2016, waste toner full error message

hey, wel if the copier is showing a message saying that the waste toner is full it means the waste toner deposit is attached to the drum unit.

so, open up the frotn cover, pull down the (drum)-lock lever, it should release the left cover, then pull towards you the drum unit, and there you go.
the black case with a small trasparent cap is the waste toner deposit.

you have two ways to go.

1 you may remove that rounded transparent plastic cap and be able to vaccum the waste toner (dont even try reusing that toner, it wont work ok) or

2 you can go the other way wich allows you to easily vaccum it: remove the drum (the roller itself) then the charger roller, then the cleaning blade and there yo go again, but now you got more space to vaccum and believe me it is easier this way.

an additional choice would be to buy a new drum unit gpr18 i think (check please) and forget all about vaccum-ing.

How to change cartdridge for other color???

If you wait until the colour has completely run out, you will see a message to that effect, and the correct cartride will be presented. If you wish to change before this:

1. On the printers' control panel, press the "right" button (labeled no. 3) once and then the "down" button (labeled no. 4) until you see the RESET MENU.
2. Press the "right" button (labeled no. 3) once.
3. Press the "down" button (labeled no. 4) until you see "CHANGE TONER X" appear on the screen (where X is either C, M, Y or K, Cyan. Magenta, Yellow or Black).
4. Press the "right" button (labeled no. 3) once. The printer will rotate the toner carousel to the correct position for you to change.
5. Open the printer door and change the toner as normal.
