You could check if the contacts on the toner cartridge and in he printer are clean and shiny. Perhaps just a bit of glue or a scrap of plastic is on a contact, making it impossible for the printer to read the status.

How to empty ricoh mp171 waste toner


Ricoh MP171 does not have a waste toner container. It recycles used toner back in the developer unit - where it is mixed with new toner and developer powder, and can be used for printing again.

Used Toner Bottle Full Ricoh Aficio 1035P


The used toner is stored in the Transfer Belt assembly on the right door that you open to remove a jam. Remove one spring on each side and release the catch while gently lifting up on the belt and roller assembly. It swings 90 degrees up from the rest of the assembly. There are 6 screws that hold a cover on the lower assembly. remove it and dump the waste toner. *** VERY MESSY*** have a vac on hand. Not a shop vac unless you want toner clouds floating around the office. If the six screws aren't present, dump the toner out of the **** between the mylar-rubber blade and the lower assembly. once this is done, the message will clear.
