Question about Ricoh Aficio CL2000N Laser Printer
The little screen is asking me to replace the waste toner. I'm not sure what the waste toner is or how to replace it.
The waste toner bottle is just a bottle that the old unused toner falls into. It is located on the right side of your printer. Open the right side door, and the waste toner bottle (which is wide and flat) is in plain view taking up the bottom half of view. It has a sliding lock on top. Slide the lock to 'unlock' and remove it. Replacing it is easy - just reverse and make sure to lock.
