Hi, usually that ink is water soluble. If you can get the box out, warm water will do. If not scrape out as much as you can and wipe the rest with a damp rag, easy does it.

Reset wast toner box on 9970cdw


Remove the full waste toner box per manual. Wear breathing protection as there will be toner dust in the air. Place flat in a work area and remove the 6 screws retaining the black box cover and carefully remove cover with box still flat on the work area. Be careful, the box is full of waste toner powder. Dispose of the waste toner by tipping into waste container, being careful not to inhale the powder. Use a blower or vacuum to remove final traces of waste toner from the box and clean all surfaces with a clean cloth. Place the box flat on the clear sight-glass at the front. Inside will be a black flag which should be down on the bottom of the sight glass. If not, there is still waste toner in the front of the box which needs to be shaken or blown out. Replace the cover and 6 screws and replace the waste toner box in he printer. If error message still says replace waste toner box, then you need to check the sight glass again. The flag must be horizontal at the bottom of the glass or it is not completely empty.

Excess waste toner


For MFC-9840, it was simple to find and empty the box (http://www.howtofixcomputers.com/forums/printers/brother-mfc-9440cn-waste-toner-box-reuse-288524.html) and assume it is equally easy to do once you locate the box on your model.

Waste toner box in mfc9840cdw is full


The waste is captured more for easy, clean and safe disposal. As far as operation ogre the printer you could empty the waste and RE use the bottle.

I purchased a new Brother TN-350 Toner, however when printing, their are black spots on the paper. Can you tell me what's the problem?


There's toner on the roller or the fuser wire needs cleaning. Open the printer, remove the toner cartidge and clean the inside of the printer with a soft brush.

What is a waste toner box. what does it do and


like the name suggest, it collects waste toner. Any toner that is left over from the print process is waste toner. Once the waste toner bottle is full, the printer will stop working until You have replaced it with an empty waste toner bottle. So in short, if it is telling u to get a new one, get one or the other option is to empty it yourself which is very messy and if u dont clean the bottle of all toner dust, may not even work.

Please describe your Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer problem


Yep this will always happen if your just using a replacement toner. They will be depleted faster compared to the original Brother toner.

Make sure you replace your toner with the original Brother toner.

Hl 2040


You must have refilled the first (starter) cartridge or didn't reset the toner reset lever. There is a reset lever on the left side edge of the cartridge. Look at the left end of the cartidge (not the fill cap end) for a round white gear end and a white lever in a hal moon shaped slot. If you can see only the round white gear and the hlf moon is emty of a white lever, it's a non-restting starter. If you have two white spots we will be addressing the one in the half moon slot. The used cartidge will have the lever at the "3 O'clock" position. To reset the cartridge as new you must remove the two screws on that end cap and move the lever to the "11 O'clock" position. Put the scews back in and reinstall in the printer. The sweeper lever will turn in the machine and reset the toner count.

***Important For Brothers**

Make sure when refilling that ALL WASTE TONER is completely cleaned out of the cartridge before adding new toner to it. Brother re-uses its old waste toner and over time the toner hopper gets contaminated with paper dust and too much old toner inside causing them to fail. It you just add toner to the cartridge without thoughly cleaning out, you will soon have a bad cartridge again. You'll see it when dumping out the old as white specks in the toner. That's actually contamination from paper dust and talc from the paper.

Hope that helps you.

PROBLEM BROTHER 2040 PRINTER


Have you replaced the drum and toner? It sounds as if the printer is saying it's time. The motor constantly running usually means it's trying to add toner to satisfy the toner sensor, but it's empty.
