I have your bulletproof fix. Open the front door,and look at the far right bottom corner.You will see a piece of sheet metal about 3" by 6" that is locked down by a black plastic button that looks like an oversized thumb tack(if its still there). The black retainer holds the sheet metal slider in place. The sheet metal slider holds the used toner bottle in place.Remove the black plastic retainer and slide the sheet metal towards you.The sheet metal will actually have a hold on the waste toner bottle and so they both will come out together,as you will see when you pull it out. Empty the bottle into a trash bag (be careful, its not dangerous but can make one hell of mess). This machine uses an auger and tube assembly to deliver the used toner to the bottle. As the bottle reaches maximum capacity, the backpressure of trying to push more toner into a confined space causes a bind in the delivery system which trips a sensor(photo interruptor) and you get the message to empty the waste toner. So once the bottle is emptied you should be ok. Note: on rare occasions the tube and auger assembly(which became somewhat packed and therefore gave the message) will remain slightly bound even after the toner in the bottle is emptied.You might have to slide the waste toner bottle back in a couple of times to dislodge the clogged toner. In fact I have had to use a slight amount of "force" to jog the clog loose.Again this is rare. The copier should immediately recover once you put the bottle back and close the door. Another rarity can occur which will cause you to turn the copier off and back on in order for the copier to return to a ready condition. Have a fine day. ............SPINAL............

The used toner bottle is not actually a bottle at all. Not sure what you emptied, but it sounds like the actual toner bottle itself. The waste toner is contained with in the transfer belt unit. When you open the right side cover, this is the unit that is attached to the door. It is a brown belt that provides transfer of the image to the drum and separates the paper from the drum. Remove this unit by locating the release levers on either side of the transfer unit (push both of them towards the machine). After removing, you will need to actually take the belt unit off of the transfer unit. To do this, remove the two tension springs on either side, and then take a small flat bladed scredriver and release the clips that hold it down (you will see when you get started). Once you get it off, you will see the long blade that actually scrapes the toner off the belt. Dump the waste toner out this end. You will need to shake it pretty hard. A better (and cleaner) option is to vaccum it out using the crevace tool on you vac. Just make sure you completely empty it. Now....do everything in reverse.
Hope this helps,

If I remember right, the CL1000 won't print if any of the 4 colors are out. You have to replace the cyan toner in order to print, even in black and white.
If you haven't tried already, you can try taking the cyan toner out and shaking it up (just a little bit) to try to get the printer to find the little bit of toner left in the bottle.

On a 3224, the used toner bottle is easily replaceable. To get to it, open the front cover of the copier. In the lower left corner, you will see a white or light gray plastic container which slides straight out -- that is the used toner bottle. You can replace it (if you have a new one) by taking the old one out, putting the black plug in the hole to prevent toner from spilling, throwing it away, and inserting the new bottle. If you don't have a new used toner bottle, you can empty this one out into a large bag or trash can and then reinstall it.
