Look for a small cavity with transparent walls, through which a sensor shines a light beam to see if it's empty (clear) or full (toner blocking the light). Use compressed air to blow toner residue from it (do it in the open to not inhale the toner particles).

Toner is a safety hazard.Never inhale it. ALso never vacuum it witha reguar household vacuum. Toner causes static which can cause a fire or else it is so fine it will go through the vacuum filter and be blown into the air and people can inhale it. Its effects on breathing it in can be likened to asbestos.

SOURCE: We removed the waste toner bottle and it won't reset the error message

You will need to vacuum all the toner out as in the machine there is a sensor that looks through the waste tank and checks that it is clear. You can also wash the tank out then install it and you will not have the problem.

Thanks J

Waste toner is almost full on Savin C9020



The bottom left portion of the display gave the error message:
Waste Toner Bottle 1 Almost Full. Please call service.


They were still able to print, however this message would not go away.


To Fix:


Power down the printer using the normal shutdown method.


Open the top front door.

Remove the cover directly below the 4 toner cartridges.

The removable cover below the toner cartridges is actually the Waste Toner Bottle.


Bring this to the dumpster.



There is a round, clear-plastic tab on the underside of the "bottle". Remove this.


8_30_2012_7_29_09_pm.jpg


Shake the bottle around over the dumpster. Continue until all the toner has been removed.


Push the clear plastic tab back in place. Wipe off all toner residue before putting it back into the printer.


Put the waste toner bottle back into place. Power on the Savin. Confirm the message no longer appears and that users are able to print.

The check waste toner bottle message keeps showing up,even though its empty


Check that the bottle is also clean from toner residue especially around the top where the lid is.

Use a clean rag or paper towel to wipe away all the toner.inside and out.

This should make the message go away

Used Toner Bottle Full Ricoh Aficio 1035P


The used toner bottle is not actually a bottle at all. Not sure what you emptied, but it sounds like the actual toner bottle itself. The waste toner is contained with in the transfer belt unit. When you open the right side cover, this is the unit that is attached to the door. It is a brown belt that provides transfer of the image to the drum and separates the paper from the drum. Remove this unit by locating the release levers on either side of the transfer unit (push both of them towards the machine). After removing, you will need to actually take the belt unit off of the transfer unit. To do this, remove the two tension springs on either side, and then take a small flat bladed scredriver and release the clips that hold it down (you will see when you get started). Once you get it off, you will see the long blade that actually scrapes the toner off the belt. Dump the waste toner out this end. You will need to shake it pretty hard. A better (and cleaner) option is to vaccum it out using the crevace tool on you vac. Just make sure you completely empty it. Now....do everything in reverse.

Hope this helps,
Chad

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.
