Depending on the kind of copier, all copiers have toner sensor. The sensor flip or botton is out of position. When a toner is inserted in a copier, it is either displacing a flip which open light to a sensor or pressing a sensor botton. In either case a signal in sent to the processor that there is toner or not. Check in the toner chamber, you will it either blocked with dirt. First try power cleaning "Use air preasure".

WASTE TONER IS FULL ERROR


You have to empty out the waste toner bottle... The bottle is a milky white plastic and I believe it is right under the fuser unit. It should slid out toward you. Carefully dump the toner out of the bottle into a plastic garbage bag and re install the bottle and you are done....

Hello
You will have to remove the waste toner bottle, put some cleaning solvent in the bottle and wash the toner out of the bottle.
Please the bottle out to dry before you replace it in the machine.

Can i empty the 7120 waste toner bottle?


No you should not empty this bottle. It is designed to keep the excess toner inside itself and should be disposed of properly. NOTE: To return the used Waste Toner Container for recycling, follow the instructions included with the new container. If the instructions or shipping label are not available, click on the [Recycling] link under the Product Resources section of this window for additional information. Follow this link for detailed instructions on how to replace the bottle once you have a new one onsite. http://www.support.xerox.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE?St=161,E=0000000002703235792,K=5302,Sxi=14,Case=obj(1554) Hope it helps!

I have a Minolta Di181 black and white copier. It started printing lines all through the paper and was a little dark. I bought another copy machine because this one is old. It is a imagistics zc25 this...


Well, you put your self into a pickel. With the Di181 you most likly neede a new drum and cln blade & a good cleaning. Now with the Imagistics, you may have the same problem, but you put Minolta toner into a Imagistics. Thats like putting oil into water and wonder why they don't mix? Now you need to replace the drum & blade & developer & toner and vaccum out all the toner and start off with all new. Good Luck

Says to empty used toner, did that, and still says empty used toner, how can i fix this?


Did you empty the bottle and put a new empty bottle on...OR did you empty the bottle and put the empty "dirty" bottle back on.????
The bottle has to be clean or the sensors that look at the bottle will still think its full.

I dispose of toner and still keep getting messages


I assume when you say you dispose of toner you are emptying out the waste toner bottle and putting it back in the machine. if so here's your problem.
There is a sensor, mounted to the copier, just behind the waste toner bottle (on the upper righthand side). This sensor shoots a beam of light through a small portion of the waste bottle - if the beam is not received on the other side then the copier thinks the waste bottle is full. NOW...even if you have emptied it the interior of the bottle may still be dirty/black enough (leftover residue) to stop the beam from making it through the bottle - this gives you the message. You will need to put in a new bottle.

How do i empty the used toner?


WAIT!!! Don't let Ricoh Steal your money...

You're going to get a little bit dirt with the trick, but there is no need to buy a empty waste toner bottel

Empty the waste toner bottle inside a plastic bag, the dust is kind of azard!!!, when the bottle is empty, clean it from the outside.
Place the bottle in the printer, (This is just for reference only), in the right side of the bottle you're going to see a plastic tag all dirty (You see it?) OK!!, remove the bottle from the printer, and then very carfully remove that plastic tag from the bottle taking care of not ripping it off, now clean the plastic tag, and put it in place again, and now your printer is ready to work!!!!!
Where's the trick?, The printer has a Photo sensor that is "looking" trugh this plastic tag, when the plastic tag is full of toner, the sensor can't get the signal, and then it says that the waste bottle is full..!!!

TONY!!

Used Toner Bottle Full - how do I empty it?


Hello Pete,
I have your bulletproof fix. Open the front door,and look at the far right bottom corner.You will see a piece of sheet metal about 3" by 6" that is locked down by a black plastic button that looks like an oversized thumb tack(if its still there). The black retainer holds the sheet metal slider in place. The sheet metal slider holds the used toner bottle in place.Remove the black plastic retainer and slide the sheet metal towards you.The sheet metal will actually have a hold on the waste toner bottle and so they both will come out together,as you will see when you pull it out. Empty the bottle into a trash bag (be careful, its not dangerous but can make one hell of mess). This machine uses an auger and tube assembly to deliver the used toner to the bottle. As the bottle reaches maximum capacity, the backpressure of trying to push more toner into a confined space causes a bind in the delivery system which trips a sensor(photo interruptor) and you get the message to empty the waste toner. So once the bottle is emptied you should be ok. Note: on rare occasions the tube and auger assembly(which became somewhat packed and therefore gave the message) will remain slightly bound even after the toner in the bottle is emptied.You might have to slide the waste toner bottle back in a couple of times to dislodge the clogged toner. In fact I have had to use a slight amount of "force" to jog the clog loose.Again this is rare. The copier should immediately recover once you put the bottle back and close the door. Another rarity can occur which will cause you to turn the copier off and back on in order for the copier to return to a ready condition. Have a fine day. ............SPINAL............

The copier has an "eye" that detects when the waste toner bottle is full. If you dump it and reuse it, the residue can build up and cause the machine to "think" the bottle is still full. I experienced the same problem. If you re-use an old bottle, after emptying, rinse our any remaining residue and dry the bottle out. Your copier should then notice the bottle being empty.
