Empty the container that holds the "waste" toner.
You may have to use the controls on the printer to say that you have emptied the container, because the printer is "estimating" (not actually "measuring") how full the container has become, based on the number of pages that have been printed.

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.

Hl3040cn prints a black stripe down the page despite the drum being cleaned as advised by Brother.Peter


Hi

3 issues might be the problem.

1. The toner waste compartment is full. You need to clean the toner waste compartment located in the cartridge itself.

2. Roller drum inside the cartridge have lines normally starts on both ends of the drum. This due to bulky printing. Check and replace this parts inside the toner cartridge. Manual cleaning is not advisable because the result will still the same. If you have only toner cartridge, use the roller drum and replace in place of it.

3. Faulty Toner Cartridge that cause leaking the toner powder. If you purchase remanufactured toner cartridge or you refill the toner cartridge. It tends to worn out the parts. Normally starts as roller drum and follows with the other parts. Replace new original Toner Cartridge. When you refill the toner cartridge, you need to clean the waste compartment as well as it will later be full and overflow.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

I have 3 bottles of toner. How can I refill mt HP


There is no point in trying to home refill toner cartirdges unless you have an effective way of managing the waste toner. Almost all toner cartridges, including yours, have a waste toner hopper that holds the toner which was cleaned from the imaging drum that did not go on the paper. If you are unable to empty this is will eventually overflow into your printer, make a huge mess and possibly damage the machine. Also, the components in the cartridge are only intended for one time use, they will need to be replaced. If not the special coatings on them will wear off and the cartirdge will just fail to print. I would recommend high quality refills from a reputable seller who replaces parts, not just reuse, this is important to ask.

I have no idea what ikkenom is smoking.

The Drum Cartridge unit is as user-replaceable as a toner cartridge.

Yes, you will have to replace the drum cart.

How do i manually rotate cartridge carosel


You don't want to rotate the toner cartridges, you need to get a new Drum Cartridge assembly.
When you get that, it will have detailed directions, but you'll end up opening the top of the printer and pulling the drum straight up.

This is a different component than a toner cartridge. The toner carts are the supply of new toner. The drum cart collects excess toner during the printing process, and when it's full you need to get a new (empty) one.


If you connect to your printer's web interface it will have a link for "order supplies" that will take you right to the dell.com page for it.
Post a comment back if you need me to get the URL, and I'll grab it from my printer when I get home tonight.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture


Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.

Waste Toner for GP200 series


The waste toner is collected inside the drum cartridge. It can be emptied by removing the drum cartridge assy and opening the opaque window and emptying into a large bag. The lines on your copies are probably a symptom of the drum being worn out, so replacement is probably a better option. The drum is good for 60,000 copies.

Waste Toner Light won't go off?


The waste toner is usually a bottle near the toner cartridge which collects excess toner powder from the cartridge. It is usually present in more heavy duty laser printers, not all printers have them as a replaceable supply. You would need to refer to your manual for replacement instructions, they vary from printer model. For this machine, the Waste Toner supply number is #420131. In the case of the first poster, my best guess would be there was spillage of toner on the sensors to detect the waste basket overflowing, hence why the error message is constant. This would require cleaning of the sensors, a relatively simple task but for proper access, the machine would need to be partially disassembles for thorough cleaning. It would be best done at a repair centre.
