If you open the front of the printer then you will find a waste tank in the left side - its gray. Take it out and empty it, and put the tank back in place.
This works for Samsung CLX-2160

Hi, I'm not sure with the CLX-2160 but I have a CLX-3170 and the waste toner is a clear plastic box that runs along the side where the toners are. I slid it out and tipped out all the toner dust that was in there and placed it back in, it still told me to replace it. There are no chips on it anywhere so if you look closely you can see where a light sensor must shine through the bin to tell you when it is full, I wiped the area where it lines up and also the sensor and fixed!

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE WASTE TONER ON SUMSUNG 2160 PRINTER


he 'Waste Toner Tank' is the gray colored part located to the left (If you're facing it) of the toners barrel. So all you need to do is take the Waste Tone Tank out, shake out all the waste tone from it and replace it.Then your printer should be up and running. Your other options is to buy a new one for about 12$ off the internet. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,
Lee

MESSAGE REPLACE/ INSTALL TONER WASTE TANK EVEN THOGHT I HAVE REPLACE IT ON A SAMSUNG CLX-3160 FN



When this happened, I took the tank out and shook it out into a garbage can (do this outside and be very careful not to breathe the dust). I then took a shop vac and held the hose at the opening while blowing compressed air into the tank. Wiggle the air nozzle around and you'll get out 99% of the toner. Pay extra attention to the sensor optics (plastic bulges on the sides of the tank).These need to be clean since the printer knows when the tank is full because the toner blocks light shining from one side of the tank to the other

Reinstall the tank and be sure it is fully inserted. If they printer is still on, turn it OFF. Close the front door of the machine and turn it back on.

Continue printing.

Easily Solved! I've got the the Samung CLX-2160 and I have was getting the same message "Replace/install Waste Toner Tank". The first thing I asked myself was, what is the 'Waste Toner Tank'? After typing in into google, I realised that the 'Waste Toner Tank' is the grey colored part located to the left (If you're facing it) of the toners barrel. So all you need to do is take the Waste Tone Tank out, shake out all the waste tone from it and replace it. Your printer will be up and running like the first time!!!
