Question about Samsung CLX-3175FW Multifunction Laser Color Printer

1 Answer

Our office has a pretty new Samsung CLX-3175FW. Right now it states "REPLACE/INSTALL TONER WASTE BIN" I have no idea where that is located or what its function might be. Can you help me? No one else here knows of a manual and even if there is a manual somewhere, I doubt anyone would know where it is. I've been here the longest (except for the owner) and he doesn't know where it is, sooo....can you help me?

The toner waste bin in in the toner bay on the left hand side. It simply pulls out. You can purchase a replacement or just dump all the old waste toner out. It can be a little messy. It works with an "electric eye"

    On your waste toner bin there will be a vertical flat "blade" which goes into sensor on the machine. Ensure this blade and as much as possible around it are clean.

open the cover and now remove the waist toner container (you say it is empty) check the conection to the drum unit sometimes if the waist toner is verry full there is a pille of toner closing this connection, now clean it and all the sorounding from the toner and mount the waist container back in his possition, close the front cover and try, it should work now.

Install/replace toner waste bin. where is it located. how do i clean it and reinstall?


The waste toner is a large, clear plastic container on the left side of the printer when you look at it from the front. Here is the info and a picture from the Samsing website: http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/printers-accessories/CLT-W409/SEE

To remove and replace it, turn the printer off and wait a few minutes for it to cool, then open the front cover and look at the bottom left of the printer. There should be a clear plastic handle that you can pull the whole waste unit out with. Be carefull not to spill any of the toner; that powder gets everywhere. There will be a small green or blue plastic clip attached to the bottom of the waste container that you can pull off and clip onto the opening to close it.

Samsung of course wants you to replace the waste toner container with a new one, which you may have to do, but there are some printers that simply emptying the cartridge out will allow you to use it again. Be careful if you decide to do this though: toner is very dangerous to breathe in, so don't shake the toner around to empty it and get a facefull. Be gentle with it and make sure to dispose of the toner properly and put the cartridge back in and see what happens. If it works, great! You don't have to buy a new one. However, if you empty it and it keeps giving you trouble, you may just need to order a new one. The part number is CLT-W409, and most waste units cost under $20.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Wont print


Usually with most samsung printers they have a toner waste bin in the printer. As you print, the waste toner dumps into this bin and fills up over time. Your printer manual may tell you where this is, but usually its right in the front of the printer when you open it up. It usually looks like a white or black plastic bin. There should be a plug on it that you can pop off and dump out the waste toner. After doing that put it back in your printer and it should get rid of the message.

Hope this helps :)
