SOURCE: Waste Toner Full/ Not Install

Behind the little container for the waste toner there is a sensor that senses whether the toner basket is full or not. If the sensor itself is dirty, it can give a false reading. First try cleaning out the area under the container to see if the switch works. Also make sure the container is clean, because the sensor works by sight, so if it looks full because it's dirty, it will give a false reading. I have heard of people disabling that sensor in various ways, but that can get dangerous to the printer. I can't recall the details on that exact model, but I believe there is a diagnostic of some sort that can test that sensor to make sure it works right to begin with.

SOURCE: replace waste toner container message

I have a CLX-2160N and have just emptied my own waste toner container. (Disclaimer: not sure how toxic or environmentally friendly this is).
Emptied carefully and thoroughly (fine dust). Immersed in bowl of warm soapy water, and vigorous shaking to get nice and clean.
Shook all water out well, and dried off as much as possible. Reinstalled. Turned printer back on. Hey presto - seems happy.

How do I change the toner if it gives me the message : AP adding powder


4 Slide the toner container to the left and then pull it out toward you. 5 Gently pull the cleaning shaft out as far as it will go and push it back in 2 to 3 times. IMPORTANT Do not pull the cleaning shaft with force or pull it out completely. 6 Hold the new toner container vertically and tap the top 15 times. Turn the container upside-down and tap the top 15 times. Then, hold the container horizontally and shake it from side to side 10 times. WARNING High voltage is present in the charger section. Take sufficient care when working in this area, as there is a danger of electrical shock. 7 Install the toner container. * First insert the toner container into the copier as far as it will go and then slide it to the right as indicated by the marked arrows.

Get message " toner container is improperly installed."


Hi - What have you tried?
Process to check - simple but worth going back to basics
1 - Remove toner and reseat
2 - check you have removed all transport tags stickers etc
3 - Chck all arrears where a sensor could be blocked
4 - try a 2nd new toner (1st may be faulty)
4 - if there is a waste bottle or OPC drum attached to the toner itself ensure it is seated properly and fully locked into place

if none of the ablve work consult a printer repair or IT company

My bizhub c25 waste toner was full so replaced and will not now reset.


The C25 stores toner in a waste toner container. On the front of that container there is rectangular clear window that fits into a sensor when installed into machine. The sensor passes a beam of light through that window. When the bottle is full there is toner inside that clear plastic window which stops the light from making it through the window and the machine will tell you the waste toner is full. Just dumping the container out will not clear that window and by putting it back in the machine you will get the same toner full message. If you are going to try to reuse that container you will have remove the black plastic cover that is glued to the container above the clear plastic. Then use something like a Qtip to clean all the toner off of that clear window(much easier and faster to just replace in with a new container). if you still get the waste toner full message after you install it then remove it and wipe off the sensor that the clear window sits in. This will clear the message and you can continue your copy job.

I have just replaced my imaging unit - now it wants me to replace/install waste toner bin


When the life span of the waste toner container has expired or it's full, the smart panel program window appears on the computer, indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise your machine stops printing.

To replace it follow these instructions:
-Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.
-Using the handle, completely open the front cover.
-Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.
-Remove the container's cap from the container, and use it to close the waste toner container opening. Do not tilt or turn over the container.
-Take a new waste toner container out of its package.
-Insert the new container into position and then push it to make sure that it is firmly seated in place.
-Close the front cover firmly. If the front cover is not completely closed, the machine will not operate. -Please make sure all toner cartridges are installed properly. If any toner cartridge is installed improperly, the front cover do not close.
-Turn the machine on.

Missing developer unit


Generally this printer can be separate into 4 major part: Printer body, Toner container, Developer unit and Drum unit. The developer unit is the unit where the toner container "mount" on it and it should be removed to allow cleaning task every time the toner container is replaced.
U may get this error message if the developer unit is not install properly after u replace a new toner container. Just lift the developer unit together with the toner container out of the printer and then insert back properly into the machine.

Waste toner full/empty message


this messages referes to the waste toner being full or not installed.

Manufactures try to stop you from emptying the container by having a small "window" that the printer looks through, when you empty the toner there will still be some toner on this window, so the printer will still believe that it is full.

a way around this is to wash the container out with water (do not use hot water as this will melt the toner). i also wouldn't recommend pouring the water & toner down the sink as this could be breaking local laws.
