Hi queen.
I can only think that toner has got into the inner workings of the copier.
Open as many on the panels as you can and blow out the workings with compressed air.
You can buy cans at your local PC or Office Supplies shop.
I dont see any settings on the menu that allow you to do any maintenance on the copier itself.
Also make sure the platen galss is clean and smudge free. (The glass you put your originals on).
If you or someone you work with is technically minded taking out the toner bin waste bin asn the toner heater to clean with a dry 1inch paint brush. The toner heater (FUSER) is a delicate part oF the copier. It will be behind one of the panels that opon at the front of the copier.
It is usually as long as the copier is deep and will have a number of wires running end to end. These may well have toner on them causing the the heater to not work to its full potential.
One of the ways I used to cler these issues was do a 100 sheet run on a full text page to clean. But then this wasnt my toner or paper it was the customers. We also usd to caRry small vacuums with filters (HEPA fILTERS) in to clean up after copiers are very messy when you start fiddling about inside ;-). A small dustbuster might do the trick but remember toner particles are very very fine and can be difficult to remove.
Here is a link to explain how wonderful toner is ;-)
Also a link to read for people who want to understand better how there equipment works.
Let me know how you get on.

How to reset waste toner

Open the compartiment on the right side of the Xerox 6600 or Xerox 6605. Rotate the orange lock and carefully take out the waste box. Now empty the excess toner in a bag by shaking the unit with the "holes" down. Do this for 10 minutes till all toner is out of the box. Do this outside, it will be messy.
Blow off any residue tonerdust and take a little screwdriver to remove the plastic seethrough cover. Remove the toner behind this cover and clean it with a cloth. Glue the cover back in place and re-insert the wastebox.
You will save you some money, but it is an unavoidable messy solution.

Its saying reset drum basket, the waste toner is not being transported to the waste toner box. but have taken everything out an put a new waste box in. ?????

It is the "transport" of the "waste" toner-ink from the toner-cartridge along its path to the "basket" that is the problem.

Take a look for how the waste toner "moves" along its path; the path may be clogged.

What is a waste toner box. what does it do and

like the name suggest, it collects waste toner. Any toner that is left over from the print process is waste toner. Once the waste toner bottle is full, the printer will stop working until You have replaced it with an empty waste toner bottle. So in short, if it is telling u to get a new one, get one or the other option is to empty it yourself which is very messy and if u dont clean the bottle of all toner dust, may not even work.

I presume from your question you have a message that has popped up 'Replace the Waste Toner bottle'. This is a consumable item and will need to be replaced every 30000 pages. Emptying the old one is not recomeded as the toner is very fine, very messy, very hard to get spills out of clothing and so you will need to purchase a replacement (instalation instructions provided)

Waste Tone Box

Your machine catch's excess toner and puts it in a container and needs you to replace/empty it soon or it will have to stop work, sorta like needs just a dash of attention for all its effort.

The bottle at a guess for this model will be apparent when opening front door, instruction are probally on the inside of door but it is just a container full of black messy stuff that needs to be emptyied and replaced....hang on I'll google it....looks like you need to buy a new box and that will have instructions even.

Some links for your product toner box

C-7 980 error code

That code indicates that there is a problem with the waste toner bottle either being too full, which means that it must be either emptied or replaced, or that the sensor that senses the amount of toner is defective. You should have got an E-31 code in conjunction the C-7 980. the only thing that you can do is change the waste toner bottle, after that you're going to have to get technical help in person. Sorry. Let me know if this helps.
