Technically you do have to buy a new toner tank (they come in packs of 3, Harvey Norman normally stock them), however the carefull application of a vacume cleaner (use disposable vacume bags to do this, cloth bags don't filter well enough) to the full waste tank can at least double its life if not more. You will only be able to do this 2 or 3 times but in a pinch it will let you resume printing for a while. It allso helps to clean the optical sensor windows (their the only optically clear plastic bits on the cartridge so hard to miss) with a cotton bud (a DRY cotton bud). You will need to clean both sides of the window portal from the inside of the wate tank as well. Bending one end of the cotton bud at a 90deg angle will help when doing this. It's fiddly and potentially very messy work if your not carefull so be prepared to make a mess and most importantly keep the vacume nozle near the opening of the waste tank to **** up the super fine waste toner powder.
As for if this is just your printer wasting toner, no its not. If the printer did not clean its roller after every colour print you would end up with colour contamination on the following pages. Hence why colour prints take longer than black.

SOURCE: Samsung ML-2010 won't feed paper
I now understand the cause of my very loud, rattling sound. Each time a page is fed into the printer, the pickup roller makes a complete rotation. At each end of the rod through the paper roller is a cam. If I'm successful, I will upload a picture of the right one (looking into the printer). For each cam, there is a roller that must move down by a few milimeters so that the cam can reposition itself. In my case, one of the rollers is almost completely rigid, so that the cam is stopped a few degrees short of returning to its initial position. I have also posted what looks like a conspicuous asymmetry. The next two images are the LHS (nonrigid) and RHS (rigid) sides. It looks as if there is a piece missing on the side that is rigid. I think a thin plastic piece has fallen under the plate carrying the roller so that, on one side, it cannot depress. I also have a very funky solution. I simply removed one of the phillips-head screws on the back of the printer (on the side that is rigid). Now the plate with the roller seems to have just enough flexibility to allow the cam to reposition.

dis is quite common problem..don't panic..
did u change / replace the cartridge with original spare or refilled it??
this kind of problem often follows with an unbranded cartridge change and or refilling..!!
least chance of the defective cartridge itself causing such problem..!!
however always try to use genuine refill packs/toner..
..contact ur system admin/vendor....
