Re: We removed the waste toner bottle and it won't reset...
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.

The bottle full message indicates that the waste toner collection bottle is full. The full bottle needs to be removed and the toner disposed of properly. Then a replacement collection bottle needs to be installed and the waste toner counter reset. This site has the toner bottle: http://www.precisionroller.com/waste-toner-containers-for-ricoh-aficio-mp-c4500/details_47769.html . It is possible to reuse the bottles but most people will spill the toner when they try to empty a collection bottle. You do not want loose toner in your environment.
Turn off the printer (at the power switch) and wait for the lights to stop blinking before attempting the replacement. See page 62 of the network guide for the replacement procedure. See https://www.ricoh-usa.com/downloads/downloads.aspx to search for your printer and get the manuals.
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.
Check the waste bottle to see if there is a chip mounted on it somewhere. If not see if there is an optical sensor or clear window. If there is a chip it will need to be replaced or a new unit used. If there is a window or optical sensor you should be able to remove it, clean it out, and replace it. These are often the last part to fill with toner and create a light path block.
not a solution - but a problem... i emptied the toner waste bottle in my MPW2400 and a new error message appears...says there is no toner and it keeps dumping toner from the new cartridge until it is coming out of every orifice of the machine. What is that about?
This is a code for the waste toner bottle being too full. The copier usally displays that the waste toner is getting full and needs to be dumped. But if the customer ignores this message for too long it goes into this code. Empty the waste toner bottle behind the front door. Be sure to clean the neck of the bottle also. Reinstall the bottle and power down the copier and turn it back on. Things should be OK then.
Hi, the chip on those toner bottles stores information about how much toner is left, so once that chip registers an empty toner bottle, it won't work even if you attach it to a new toner bottle. You'll need the chip from a new toner bottle, or one that hasn't registered no toner.
Let the front of the canon copier/image runner iR 3300 as a referrence, waste toner bottle is located under neath the small cover of size 15 cmsX 30 cms and this small cover is located at the extremely lower left corner of the copier/image runner iR3300.This small cover will fixed with one and only one screw at the upper/top right corner of the small cover. Un screw this small cover and remove the small cover along with the attached screw and kept aside. Under neath this small cover there will be a big plastic bottle which is called as the waste toner collection bottle. The capacity of this bottle may be 11/2 kgs to 2 kgs. When this waste toner bottle was filled up , a message will be appeared on the screen that ' replace the waste toner collection bottle'. Even after the this message the copier/image runner may work properly. If the message of error code E000019-0000 appeared on the screen this waste toner bottle may be filled completly. Then the coper will stops to work. Then gently remove this waste toner collection bottle slowly and empty the waste toner bottle which was filled up with waste toner within the plastic bag. Wash this waste toner bottle with soft water 2 or 3 times and there after with soft detergent washing powder , so that no stains of waste toner or any type of stains may be completly removed. Please don't try to remove the water particles with cloth or any thing Or don't try to remove the water particles with Hot hair dryer. After washing the waste toner bottle , dry this with the air coming from cealing fan or with cold hair dryer. After the waste toner bottle was completly dried withj the cold air replace the this bottle in the original place. Before replacing the waste toner bottle in its original position clean the place of waste toner base / holder -up , down, left & right with the clean and soft cloth which is under neath the small cover. Hurray ! your problem will be solved completly without any expenditure but you may expected to take time with patience.
Because of statics and plastic bottle, the toner is collected on bottle neck, where is two circles. Even if bottle isnt full but the neck of bottle is dirty the error will occure. Clean the neck with dry cloath, and then with some antistatic detergent, this will take care of the bottle.
But more permanent solution is to disconnect the waste toner sensor. You will see it above the waste toner bottle.Its a white connector with wires. Pull it out. But then you need to take a very good care of amount of waste toner in bottle, because if it gets too full it could broke the waste toner gears. So that means that you must every time when you replace the drum, empty the bottle too.
