1. Empty the waste box.

2. Read p66 of http://printer.konicaminolta.com/service/ASP/mc2300/documentation_manuals/mc2300SM.pdf

3. Identify the "Waste Toner Full Detecting Sensor" which tries to pass a light beam through the protruding plastic slot on the waste box that engages with the photocell.

4. Use a dry cloth to clean dust off the photocell transmitter and receiver and also off the protruding plastic slot, so that light will now pass through.

5. Refit the waste box and enjoy the $$ saving.

I've replaced the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle, but the display still says 'toner low' and 'waste toner near full'. It refuses to print, even with the old cartridges.


Then you mite want to clean the sensor that monitor the waster toner box pull out the waste toner box and look for the area that show clear plastic then look for those area of the machine and blow the old toner from those areas waste toner mite have gotten on the sensor saw they can not see the clear plastic and think that the waste toner cart is still full.

2300dl toner problems


Unfortunalely printers and there drivers estimate toner life buy counting the amount of dots draws on the pages. Say a cartridge is rated for 3000000 dots when new, the printer will know after printing 1500000 dots that the cartridge is about half full. If you replace a cartridge the printer will assume it's new as the ID tag will be different from the last cartridge. There really isn't any way of modifying or specifying the age of a cartridge. You will just have to keep using it until you start seeing drop outs on the page, then you will know it is almost empty. Shaking it a few times will usualy help stretch the life of a cartridge.

Konica Minolta 2300DL waste box full message


remove the waste box you'll see blue knob and above there is a sensor now take a look at the waste box and find the place what goes between the sensor. you should cut off one side and clean the other sides and then use some invisible tape to fix the hole. and try again.
Place what goes between the sensor have to be clean. its not good idea to cut or remove the sensor at all because next time the box will be full you don't know that and it will brake your printer

What is "FULL"? I fyou mean the drum, then you want the display to show that the drum is full - this is correct for when a drum has been changed.

Maybe you mean the toner bottle is full. If so, emptying it will resolve the issue.
