SOURCE: Waste toner dumping
Hello lb. I promise you I can help you. I could go into overwhelming detail as to the reasons your copier has indicated to you that the waste toner bottle needs attention. I say this because your device can be programmed to either physically "look" at the condition of the waste toner container, or the device can use internal counters that are usual quite accurate. Since these "counters" reflect the wear on the drum (important s*&^%) they can be extremely cost effective as it considers YOUR usage compared to the average joe. My point is, the waste toner area of your machine was never truly meant to be dumped as it is a part of a cartridge. It can be done but odds of total success are not good and we still are looking at significant wear on other major components waiting to give you grief soon. A drum unit for your machine consists of a huge number of critical items and is good for about 20,000 copies. It costs +/- $100. Far less than a service call, and the drum gets replaced,again many other components, and the waste toner. Or you can remove the drum/development unit, find the semi clear plastic plug and remove it,vacuum it out or pour it out. Locate the the photo sensor inside this non-serviceable unit and clean it with canned air as you stand ouside and face away from the wind. Hmmmmmmmmm. I am not being a smartass, just trying to minimize your out of pocket costs and frustration. Good luck and take care. ........................SPINAL

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.

The waste toner is in the front, open front cover and the white bottle in the middle is the waste toner cartridge. Remove the black screw, and empty or replace the cartridge.
