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.

Our toshiba e5520c colour machine shows an error code cd81. What can i do to solve the problem? Must i reset the machine? Can anybody help please? Thanks Yolande


CD81 is an error code for full waste toner bag, or waste toner auger is being locked up, all you have do is separate the finisher from the copier(a green lever inside the finisher door or hole punch unit door), open the side door on the left side, pull the the waste toner bag out, dispose the waste toner properly, then tap the waste toner bag lightly (to make sure you clear the light sensing area is clear for waste toner full detection), reverse the procedures -please consult your user guide. Better yet, ask your dealer give you a spare waste toner bag.

The screen on my Phaser 6110 MFP says "Remove/Install Waste toner tank." I don't know what that is.


The life of the waste toner container unit is approximately 1,250 pages

for full color 5% image printing or 5,000 images 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.

4 Remove the container's cap from the container as shown below,

and use it to close the waste toner container opening.

5 Take a new waste toner container out of its package.

Tip

Make sure that you lay the waste toner container on a flat

surface so that the toner does not spill.

Caution

Do not tilt or turn the tank over.

6 Insert the new container into position and then push it to make sure

that it is firmly seated in place.

7 Close the front cover firmly.

8 Turn the machine on.

Caution

If the front cover is not completely closed, the machine will not

operate.

Tip

After rebooting, your machine will automatically reset the
counter for the waste toner container

Hi, My Toshiba E-Studio 3511 color copier has a error message of 'dispose of used toner.' Even if I followed the direction, the error message is still there and the copier can't work. Would you help me...


I am assuming you have emptied the old waste toner "box" and not replaced it with a new box. This is not a problem, just clarifying. If this is the case then you have toner packed into the sensor block which is telling the machine that the waste toner box is still full. Just look behind the waste toner box and look for a little set of wires. They lead to a small black sensor. Now look at the waste toner box where it mates up with the sensor. You will see a small square box area on the waste toner bottle. The sensor looks thru this block and if it is blocked with toner it will tell the machine the box is full. Just tap on the little block and make sure there is no toner in it and re-install the waste toner box and the indicator should go away.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

HP Laserjet 2840 asked for drum replacment afther only 5300 pages but should make 20000. Prits where still perfect but now it refuses to print. Any solutions how to keep using the drum?


Check online for refill instructions and where to buy the chip to replace on the drum, most of the drums today have little chips to replace that tell the printer when they are used up, even when there's still life in them.

if you have a new waste toner container and it's still saying needs replacement, the sensors on each side needs to be cleaned off.

Waste Toner Full/ Not install still on screen after I emptied and will not print. I emptied container and reinstalled and still same message on screen


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.

Waste Toner Light won't go off?


The waste toner is usually a bottle near the toner cartridge which collects excess toner powder from the cartridge. It is usually present in more heavy duty laser printers, not all printers have them as a replaceable supply. You would need to refer to your manual for replacement instructions, they vary from printer model. For this machine, the Waste Toner supply number is #420131. In the case of the first poster, my best guess would be there was spillage of toner on the sensors to detect the waste basket overflowing, hence why the error message is constant. This would require cleaning of the sensors, a relatively simple task but for proper access, the machine would need to be partially disassembles for thorough cleaning. It would be best done at a repair centre.
