Re: Waste toner dumping
Hello lb. I promise you I can help you. I could go into overwhelming detail as to the reasons your copier has indicated to you that the waste toner bottle needs attention. I say this because your device can be programmed to either physically "look" at the condition of the waste toner container, or the device can use internal counters that are usual quite accurate. Since these "counters" reflect the wear on the drum (important s*&^%) they can be extremely cost effective as it considers YOUR usage compared to the average joe. My point is, the waste toner area of your machine was never truly meant to be dumped as it is a part of a cartridge. It can be done but odds of total success are not good and we still are looking at significant wear on other major components waiting to give you grief soon. A drum unit for your machine consists of a huge number of critical items and is good for about 20,000 copies. It costs +/- $100. Far less than a service call, and the drum gets replaced,again many other components, and the waste toner. Or you can remove the drum/development unit, find the semi clear plastic plug and remove it,vacuum it out or pour it out. Locate the the photo sensor inside this non-serviceable unit and clean it with canned air as you stand ouside and face away from the wind. Hmmmmmmmmm. I am not being a smartass, just trying to minimize your out of pocket costs and frustration. Good luck and take care. ........................SPINAL

Save money by removing your drum units waste toner yourself.By removing waste toner the drum life will be increased.Remove the waste toner every 3 to 5 thousand prints.
The main cause of drum failure in this model is caused by waste toner build up at the back of the drum,this cause the drum cleaning blade to put more pressure on the drum and.
Slide the platte-ned cover Assembly to the left open the left cover,remove the drum and developing Assembly like you do when you have to remove a paper jam.The drum and developer assy is attached by 2 blue clips,unlock the clips and separate the def and drum.On top of the drum unit the is a plastic plug that you can remove and trough out the toner in a dustbin with plastic bag coverd.Do not use this toner again in the machine.
Reinstall the plug and connect the drum and developer unit with the two clips.Reinstall the unit.
By removing the waste toner regally you will save on service cost as well.
You could empty the area that monitors the condition of the waste toner. But this device was not designed for that. The waste toner bottle is built into the drum assembly and since they "wear" out at about the same time it is truly best that you replace the drum assembly and just be done with it.
The part number is 7815AD004BA and it's usually good for around 20,000 copies. It you choose to vacuum the waste toner area out of desperation, remove the drum/dev unit assembly. The drum has a plastic cap on top of it. Its almost clear plastic.Remove it and empty/vacuum. Once clean re-install.Good luck.
It's been a while since I've worked on one of these, but I believe that the waste toner is located in the drum cartridge itself on a NP6035. The term replace is not really accurate. The term "dump out" is more accurately what you will do with the waste toner. To do this, simply open the front door to your copier and you will then see a grey plastic component, this is the drum cartridge, this is the unit that you must slide out in order to dump out the waste toner. The drum cartridge is held on with either a thumb screw or a #2 Phillips screw which you need to remove first. Next you will want to lower the transport bed, don't worry it's not rocket science, you just turn the green (or is that blue) levers in the copier to accomplish this. The drum cartridge should now slide out towards you so that you should now be holding it in your hands . . . . but wait! The drum is kinda sensitive to fingerprints and abuse so don't touch it on anything that has oils or any sharp objects for that matter or let sunlight hit it directly. Anyhow, there is a little plastic door on this cartridge that you can pull off by hand and then shake the waste toner out through into a plastic bag (use a new one(maybe double lined)) The stuff is messy, but if you treat it like flour or maybe water then you will do okay. You don't need to get every drop out, just the majority. Now just back through your steps and your done. Do a few prints to clean up the image as well.
If you open the front door,the plastic container in front is the waste toner container .Remove that bottle and dump all that toner.Make sure the neck of the container is free from toner inside and outside.And put the container back in it's place.
To change the drum you have to slide the plattened cover to the left,like you do when removing a paper jam,open the top cover,you will see a handle that you pull to remove the defeloping and drum unit,remove the drum and def unit.
The drum is attached by two clips on top of def unit,unlock the drum from the def by releasing that clips,slide te drum protecktion plate to the rear and remove the drum.insert the new drum by reversing this steps.
If your image of your copies is not bad you can remove the waste toner in the drum unit before replacing it.On top of the drum there are two plugs open them and remove the waste toner,make sure you remove all of the waste toner.Then that message will go away.
check under the drum, if there is excess toner there it is most likely coming from the drum unit or the cleaning unit, this is a unit that is on the drum and is supposed to remove any excess toner and dump it into a waste container. it may be full or blocked
