you need to open front cover, on left side you will see blue cover wich you ned to open to get to the toner, automatically the copier turns the enpty toner to "pull out" position, in your case its black tube, wich you need rotate clock wise and pull out.
Then insert new tube, hold it and pull out the ribbon, all the way out and rotate tube anticlockvise.
Close all covers and machine starts toner replenishing.

Hope that helps!

Please help we are changing the toner on our copier machine and got an ERROR MESSAGE: used toner case is full.

the waste toner box is located beneath the front cover ( the cover that has Canon and model number ).
Open toner cover and you will see one screw wich you need to remove.
Then, on left side of toner, on top of the front cover, few milimeters from edge is second screw wich you need to unscrew. Usually is covered with white/grey cork made of rubber.
then remove cover, by pulling it in left side then towards you.

Big white box is waste toner container wich you need to clean/empty it.

Hope that helped!

I have color laser printer hp it print black paper

Do kinda a half way test by running a test print and purposely stopping it befor the entire paper passes completely over the black toner, open the front panel to expose the toners and pull the black toner, there is kind of a spring loaded flap cover that you need to open manually. Check to see if the drum under the flap is covered with black toner and if so, replace the black toner for it is defective... hope this helps and if so please mark fixya...

This will solve most "Toner End Life" message problems when you know that there is toner still in the cartridge.
1. Remove the toner assembly by opening the top scanner lid, then pull(tilt) open the front panel, and pull out the toner assembly by gently grabbing the tabs and pull out with an upward motion. The toner cartridge(grey color) and the toner holder assembly (black color) will come out.
2. At the top rear of the assembly you will find a square green tab that can be slide along lengthwise of the toner. Just slide it back and forth fully several (5 to 10 times) times. I carefully blow on it as well(no spitting!) while sliding it.
3. Put the assembly back into the printer, Close the front cover, and drop the scanner cover.
4. Whala ! (usually), actually this has worked everytime for my brother and myself.

Black stains on ep2010 cs pro i tried to clean the drum now it do

You may can be lucky and just pull out the drum unit and clean the build up of toner that is between the drum unit and developer unit. This will slow down having to replace the drum and developer, but it could fix THIS problem.

Imagerunner 2016, waste toner full error message

hey, wel if the copier is showing a message saying that the waste toner is full it means the waste toner deposit is attached to the drum unit.

so, open up the frotn cover, pull down the (drum)-lock lever, it should release the left cover, then pull towards you the drum unit, and there you go.
the black case with a small trasparent cap is the waste toner deposit.

you have two ways to go.

1 you may remove that rounded transparent plastic cap and be able to vaccum the waste toner (dont even try reusing that toner, it wont work ok) or

2 you can go the other way wich allows you to easily vaccum it: remove the drum (the roller itself) then the charger roller, then the cleaning blade and there yo go again, but now you got more space to vaccum and believe me it is easier this way.

an additional choice would be to buy a new drum unit gpr18 i think (check please) and forget all about vaccum-ing.

Black blotch on page

Check that the fuser is reaching the right temperature, Is the paper coming out warm?
Is the toner loose on the paper?

To check the fuser:

Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
Pull the front cover down towards you.
Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
See it has toner residue at both ends.
If so, you'll need to replace it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How do I reset waste motor error on xerox phaser 6100?

The waste motor error usually occurs because the printer is run without the waste toner cartridge and the port where the waste toner exits is clogged. It can be a really messy job, but you can do it yourself.

Open the front cover where the waste toner cartridge is and remove the cartridge. There are two ports where the waste toner exits the printer and one or both are clogged. You will need to take the port covers off by removing the screws holding them on, but don't do both at once. In fact, before removing either, you will want to put down some paper towels to catch all the toner that you will unclog.

Remove one cover and the diaphram and tap the port with the handle of the screw driver. toner should begin coming out of the port. Cycle the printer on and you will begin to see more waste toner coming out.
You may hear a clicking noise. When you do, start tapping the port again with the screw driver. Keep doing this until no more toner comes out the port. When finished with that port, do the same on the other. It makes a huge mess, but the whole procedure takes about 15 minutes from start to cleanup.

Good luck! This fixed the problem with my 6100.
