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.

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.
