Question about Savin 2545DP Black and White Copier

1 Answer

I have a recurring problem with a SAVIN 2545 at only one of my customers. The toner will clump & harden in the waste toner transfer box on the front end of the image unit. This prevents the fresh toner from passing thru to the dev unit. I believe it is related to a "damp" building & the humidity is causing the clumping. Anyone have experience with this issue & a preventive solution?

I've never seen this problem, even in damp environments. Are you sure it's not a problem with the PCU's toner supply mechanism or with the dev unit's auger?

Is it a customer who runs a very low volume? I've seen problems with the toner clumping behind the cleaning blade, but never on the front side of the PCU like that. You might want to try asking around in Ricoh's tech forum, found on the Ricoh website:

Where is the run off waste on the Savin 9013?

If you open the right side door of the copier as if you are taking a paper jam out. On the inside of the door you will see the transfer belt unit. There is a Gray lever toward the front of the copier, It pulls up and to the right. The waste toner is inside that unit, it needs to be vacuumed out. Once the unit is out, there are two springs on the side of the unit remove them and there is a plastic clip that holds the belt in place. Release the clip and swing the belt up and lift it out. You will see six screws holding down a black cover, remove the screws and open, be very careful there is loose toner in the unit. Dump or vac out the waste toner and put the unit back togather and install it back into the copier and Ta Da..... Problem solved.... Good Luck.......

Changing waste container

The is no waste container on Phaser 6500. There is a "waste collection box" in every toner cartridge and the waste toner is discarded along with the empty cartridge. The is also a waste toner reservoir on the transfer belt and this one will be replaced along with the transfer belt.

If there is an error message saying, for example, "Waste Full Cyan Cartridge", it means the waste toner counter reached the replacement value for that color and you have to replace the corresponding cartridge. But the waste collection box is not really full.

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.


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.
