Open your user manual.

Or get one - go to google or samsung.

The life of the waste toner container unit is approximately 1,250 pages for full color 5% image printing or 5,000 pages for black printing. When the life span of the waste toner container has expired, Replace/Install Waste Toner Tank appears on the display of the control panel,
indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise your printer stops printing.

To replace the waste toner container:

1 Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.

2 Open the front cover.

3 Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.

--- above from manual, following is my paraphrasing due to lack of pictures ---
4. remove the container cap from the back side and cap the opening

5. take the new waste container out of its package

6. install the new waste toner container.

___________
You may wish to TRY EMPTYING the waste toner, but you will find toner is the messiest and possibly dangerous (inhallation, etc) stuff you've worked with. it is an extremely find powder and can cause an awful mess and is best disposed of by capping and replacing the container with a new one (shop around to find them).

DO NOT attempt to vacuum up toner - just my personal opinion - I suspect many vacuums may not have fine enough "bags" to capture this intentionally very fine dust. BUT Toner vacuums do exist and some "may" work.

Error code C7980


This code relate to the waste toner sensor, which means your waste toner tank is full, what you can do is, take out the imaging unit(is the unit where the toner sit) look at the lower sides, there is screw from each side, take off the screw and dump the waste toner out.(use plastic bag because it is going to be a mess if you do not use one. If you do not want to go through all this procedure just order the imaging unit and replace it.

Waste Toner Error Message For Samsung CLP 550


Dr. P,
Printer will display "Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Installed" error message if the waste tank is full of toner or not installed.
  • Open the waste tank door and check for the waste toner tank.
  • If the tank is full or not intalled, install a new tank.

If you have user guide, it will show you how to install the waste toner tank.

Sometimes you will also get this error message if the Waste Toner sensor is covered with toner powders.
  1. Remove your waste tank and look for the black plastic on the right side after removing the waste tank.
  2. You sould find small openings on each side in the black casing.
  3. Use Q-tips or thin cotton object to clean the inside the small opening.
for user manual just click here:

If this solution works, please don't forget to rate it fixya

For any more question just ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

I have a samsung clp500 color printer but it is not working .it show only waste tank is full/ not instaled what should i do.


The "waste tank" is located behind the front panel that has the SAMSUNG name on it. Press on the upper corners of this panel and it will open up to reveal a clear plastic tank on the right side.

This tank pulls out easily and has two holes for excess toner to flow into it.

Look at the side of the tank that has the holes. You should see a part of the tank that extends out from the tank but ends in a clear square. The waste tank sensor "looks" thru this clear plastic square to determine if the tank is full. I.e. if toner is in this area and you cannot clearly see thru both sides, the sensor will tell the printer that the tank is full and needs to be changed.

If the tank is not full, use a long cotton swab and clean out the inside of this area. Once you can see thru both sides, carefully replace the tank back into the printer and turn the printer back on.

If done properly, the error should go away and you should be able to continue printing. I have doen this and it works fine.

(Some posts have had people cut this part of the tank off and simply tape over the hole that is made with strong tape. This bypasses the sensor and would allow the printer to run again. I have not done this as I do not want the possibility of toner spilling in my office.)

Exception:

The sensor could be bad and causing the issue. If this is the case, it may be cheaper to purchase a new printer - CLP-620 ND is a duplex, networked color laser jet that is selling from frys.com for $315.

I already replace all cartidges and its still saying replace waster toner tank or install What does it mean?


There is a tank in the back/side compartment that keeps toner waste fluid. It is in a container like a water bottle and the fluid is black in color. Once you pull it out there is a full line and the liquid on the inside is what needs to be discarded. Empty the contents and replace the tank. Restart your printer and the error message should clear up.

Samsung CLX-3160 FN


Easily Solved! I've got the the Samung CLX-2160 and I have was getting the same message "Replace/install Waste Toner Tank". The first thing I asked myself was, what is the 'Waste Toner Tank'? After typing in into google, I realised that the 'Waste Toner Tank' is the grey colored part located to the left (If you're facing it) of the toners barrel. So all you need to do is take the Waste Tone Tank out, shake out all the waste tone from it and replace it. Your printer will be up and running like the first time!!!

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.

Waste toner tank full/not install keep displaying


The sensor for the waste toner tank is dirty or defective. The toner sensor is on the right as you look at the panel just below the liquid crystal display. There is a bump in the clear plastic just below the circular right vent port, that's where the used toner pours in. When you clean out the toner cartridge there is some residue left that makes the sensor think it's still full. Take a piece of paper towel and a small screwdriver (I'm told a bent coat hanger will work, too) and clean the inside of the sensor window inside the used toner cartridge (w/ access through the toner port). It looks like a little raised groove on the right. Just wipe it until it's clear on the inside. The sensor can now see through the window and you should be okay. Otherwise, the sensor may need to be replaced by an authorized Samsung technician. Let me know how it works out!
