I have glanced at and passed by your question several times, and finally cannot resist the urge to answer. Canon copiers are unique in the fact that they are " monocomponent". This probably means nothing to the average person. But suffice it to say,the"waste toner" you speak of is primarily drum polish and paper dust, neither of which is very good at producing a decent copy. In fact, ANY percentage of waste toner introduced into the Canon copy process is a recipe for disaster. I primarily say this because at some point you will have to replace the development unit (or have some serious service) and probably replace the drum ($1000) if you continue. I am not a Canon employee but have worked on Canon equipment for over 20 years. I merely wish to help. I would be hard pressed to see how you can save enough money up front to cover the back end costs.

Bizhub 250 toner recycling


Toner recycling mechanism is located on the drum unit

The Cleaning Blade pressed up against the surface of the Photo Conductor scrapes residual toner off the surface. The toner is then conveyed by the Toner Conveying Rollers 1/2 to the Recycling Duct and eventually back to the Developer Mixing Chamber.Since the toner is thus recovered back to the Developer Mixing Chamber, there is no Waste Toner Bottle mounted in the machine.

Cost Saving Advice


<ul> <li>Consider disposing of waste toner yourself<br />Waste toner is not environmentally friendly. But, instead of replacing the waste toner bottle, check with environmental experts in your area for what to do with the waste toner. It may be a simple matter of collecting the toner in a coffee can and turning it in somehwere.</li> <li>Never buy toner cartridges<br />Nothing about toner cartridges for this printer ever really wears out from normal use. And, refilling them is clean and easy once you know how. But, more importantly, it costs about <b>90% to 95% less</b>. </li> <li>Never replace parts just because the printer tells you to.<br />Serviceable OEM parts for this printer well outlast the printer's pushy insistance to replace them. All new serviceable parts come with a fuse. As soon as you install the part, the new fuse causes the printer to reset the page count for that part. Then, the printer blows the fuse. If the printer has been printing fine, but refuses to print because it claims a part must be replaced, remove the part, find the fuse, replace it, re-install the part, and voila!</li> <li>If a part really does need to be replaced, scavange parts from an abandoned 2200.<br />Chances are that plenty owners of this printer have gotten tired of replacing the over-priced parts.All you have to do is find one that has yet to dump the printer (like me... hint, hint).</li></ul>

Drum needs to be replaced message,Remove waste toner,Waste toner full


Save money by removing your drum units waste toner yourself.By removing waste toner the drum life will be increased.Remove the waste toner every 3 to 5 thousand prints.

The main cause of drum failure in this model is caused by waste toner build up at the back of the drum,this cause the drum cleaning blade to put more pressure on the drum and.

Slide the platte-ned cover Assembly to the left open the left cover,remove the drum and developing Assembly like you do when you have to remove a paper jam.The drum and developer assy is attached by 2 blue clips,unlock the clips and separate the def and drum.On top of the drum unit the is a plastic plug that you can remove and trough out the toner in a dustbin with plastic bag coverd.Do not use this toner again in the machine.
Reinstall the plug and connect the drum and developer unit with the two clips.Reinstall the unit.

Hi Sir. I got a problem of my Toshiba e studio 3510c printer, when I swich on the button, the screen shows there is a sentence said ;'disposal of the used tonner', should I replace the wasted...


It said exactly what? If it mentioned waste toner, emptying that tray (Toshiba has nice zero-waste-to-landfill toner recycling program) should have pretty much cleared things up; it appears that the sensor for that still sees lumps of toner..or something...coming up close to the paper path. Check it out carefully and replace the tray.

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!
