I have replaced waste toner unit with new one on a WC 5050 and still shows the error message as full so unable to print

Reset to Default settings, if that does not work, shut down printer, unplug power from printer, shut down computer unplug power from computer, wait 20 seconds, plug power in to computer plug power in to printer, wait 5 seconds, boot computer, turn on printer.

NOTE: This should solve most problems with printers.

If still not working you have a faulty Toner unit.

Try power cycling both devices.
  • Completely shut down the computer.
  • Turn off the printer.
  • Unplug the power chord at the back of the printer.
  • Turn on the computer.
  • Plug the power cable back in.
  • Turn on the printer.
If your still having issues w/ it. contact your manufacturer.
Good Luck :)
