Question about Samsung CLX-3175FN Color Laser All-in-One Printer

Printer LCD "Replace/Install Toner Waste Bin

This Samsung CLX 3175FN started having problems printing a couple weeks ago. It would print the letterhead on a page, but when it got to the body of the letter it printed a column on the left side. It looked like all the characters for the line were printed on top of each other in a column 1 character wide on the left side of the page. It was an occational problem. Most times it would print properly.

Now it refuses to print at all, and the LCD is flashing the message "Replace /install waste toner bin.

I talked to Samsung support, and they said that the main board probably needed to be replaced. The printer is out of warranty. Is that a repair that I can do, and where would I obtain a main board?

    Thank you!!! You saved me lots of money and time! I took the bin out and shook out all the powder carefully into a plastic bag with a zip seal (take care it's a dirty job). The bin is the box next to the colour cartridges in front of the machine. Find it on the left with the letters for the colours on it. It will come out when you take cartridges out first and then pull on the small handle at the bottom left. After cleaning insert all elements in reverse order and make sure they click in place. The machine is working now without even washing the bin! Aldona

Hi,

The max of the OPC can go is up to 25K +/- it seems like your OPC got to replace. waster toner have to be replace every after 8 - 10K print. you do not have to replace the main board. the Waste Toner dosen't cost much but for the OPC (Image drum) it will cost alot more.

Dear user,

You have to select monochrome print settings first. go to properties of your printer and choose the tab where you get to select between B&W and color.

How to solve the problom of 'install/replace toner waste bin'?


Laser printers "print" by throwing toner onto a electrostatically-charged drum. The ink that sticks is then heated, and melts into the paper. The ink that does not stick falls into the "waste-bin".
Eventually, that waste-bin gets full, and needs to be removed, and emptied.

Wont print


Usually with most samsung printers they have a toner waste bin in the printer. As you print, the waste toner dumps into this bin and fills up over time. Your printer manual may tell you where this is, but usually its right in the front of the printer when you open it up. It usually looks like a white or black plastic bin. There should be a plug on it that you can pop off and dump out the waste toner. After doing that put it back in your printer and it should get rid of the message.

Hope this helps :)

Wash it out with rubbing alcohol and let dry. Apparently there is a light sensor that will throw up this error if the bin is dirty.
