Waste toner gets full before toner runs out

On our Kyocera FS-4020DN, the waste toner gets full a long time before the toner runs out. Is this normal? Do we need to buy separate waste toner cartridges?

Actually, the waste toner should get full sometime before the regular toner runs out in laser printers that have several toner cartridges compared to the single waste toner reservoir.

You can dump the toner reservoir out and avoid buying the empty waste toner 'reservoir.'

I did this on my Brother Laser printer and saved about $30 or so for an empty plastic waste toner bottle or jar.

If this is the way the Kyocera-4020DN is, then I would put the waste toner, which is just that, waste, and put it into a plastic zip loc storage bag and throw it away. Don't breath the toner.

Good luck on this repair.

Message on screen says "Waste Toner Box Full"


Typically you will need to replace the waste toner box. There is usually a difficult to access part of the bottle that is used by an optic sensor to tell when the box is full. Plus toner is very fine and you do not want it getting into the air. Toner will pass through the filter of most vacuums and go back into the air.

ERREUR MACHINE CODE C7990


The waste toner container is located inside the drum unit.This code means the drum unit is full. To empty there are two caps that can be opened and the waste toner can be emptied. Usually the waste gets full when the unit is very close to be replaced. You may be able to get some more time if you empty it, but you will probably need to replace the unit soon.

Waiste toner box full.....how do I clean or change this? Looked through owners manual and can't find anything about it.


The waste toner sensor has detected
that the waste toner reservoir (drum unit)
is full.
FS 1128 has drum and developer as separate unit, waste toner gets collected in the drum unit . Right or left side of the drum unit has a cap fasted with screw, open it and remove the waste toner.Refix the drum and this will solve the probelm

7410 error code


If you open the door on the left hand side of the printer, where your waste toner container goes and press firmly on the drum which is located behind the waste toner container and close the printer backup. If the drum is properly seated the error should close.

Self test says 'check waste toner box'


It looks your waste toner box is full. Waste toner box collects toner drawn during printing. You have to remove waste toner bottle and empty it.

Follow the instructions to clean up toner bottle

I have a FS-1118 MFP Kyocera printer it has refused to print and the error message is that the waste toner is full how can i empty the waste toner?


yyou have to be careful when doing this.
the waste toner is built in to the process unit (drum unit) and has a plug on the side.
remove the plug and tip it out.
