Replace/install waste toner tank samsung clx-3305fw


I repeatedly tried emptying and reinserting the waste toner tank, to no avail. What finally did the trick was thoroughly cleaning the sensor windows (or whatever you call them) in the side of the tank. These are two small squares of clear plastic (approx. 1/4-in. on a side) side-by-side, with a longer rectangle below the one on the left, to form a sort of inverted "L". I used a Q-Tip dipped in water to swab off the inside surfaces, then the dry end of the Q-Tip to dry them. Shining an LED flashlight through them helped me locate the surfaces inside the tank. Repeat until the Q-Tip comes out clear.

I keep cleaning the toner/printer waste tank cartridge and the printer continues to stop printing and the same error message displays saying "Replace/Install waste toner printer cartridge.


How are you cleaning the tank? Just dumping the contents into a trashcan may not work. The printer uses a light sensor to detect whether the tank is full. When the light does not shine through the clear window of the tank, the printer thinks that the tank is full. Sometimes cleaning the window with a cotton swab will make it work, but it can be difficult since the location of the window with respect to the opening of the tank is not a straight shot.

Another way to clean it would be dump the waste toner into ther trashcan. Tap the tank a few time to get as much of the toner out. Then add some soap and water into the tank and seal the tank opening with the green lid. Then shake the soapy water in the tank for a about a minute. Then dump the soapy toner/water out. Rinse again with just water and and allow it to dry. You don't have to get the tank completely clean, just enough to stop the waste tank error message.

Hope this helps.

Error message - Replace/Install Waste Toner Tank


You need to replace the waste toner tank.Open the front cover and on the left side in the gray waste toner tank. You can pull it out and replace it with an empty one or you can try to empty it and reinstall the tank. If you empty it, you have to make sure the parts of the tank where the sensor checks to see if it is full is clean. Otherwise it will generate the same error again. You need a cotton swab to clean the sensor ports of the tank so that the light can shine into it. Hope this helps.

What is waste toner.


We've printed for years using gallon jugs of waste toner nabbed from Quick Print Shop* dumpsters. We just pop the white plug on our cartriges, fold a paper plate into 4ths, snip the tip to make a funnel, and dump it in a half cup at a time!

*Names changed, LOL

Waste Tank Full - Solid Red Light


Technically you do have to buy a new toner tank (they come in packs of 3, Harvey Norman normally stock them), however the carefull application of a vacume cleaner (use disposable vacume bags to do this, cloth bags don't filter well enough) to the full waste tank can at least double its life if not more. You will only be able to do this 2 or 3 times but in a pinch it will let you resume printing for a while. It allso helps to clean the optical sensor windows (their the only optically clear plastic bits on the cartridge so hard to miss) with a cotton bud (a DRY cotton bud). You will need to clean both sides of the window portal from the inside of the wate tank as well. Bending one end of the cotton bud at a 90deg angle will help when doing this. It's fiddly and potentially very messy work if your not carefull so be prepared to make a mess and most importantly keep the vacume nozle near the opening of the waste tank to **** up the super fine waste toner powder.

As for if this is just your printer wasting toner, no its not. If the printer did not clean its roller after every colour print you would end up with colour contamination on the following pages. Hence why colour prints take longer than black.

Waste motor error


The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.

If a new waste toner bottle is in place, then the printer needs a new motor, which can only be purchased through an Authorized Service Center.

Waste toner tank full/not install keep displaying


The sensor for the waste toner tank is dirty or defective. The toner sensor is on the right as you look at the panel just below the liquid crystal display. There is a bump in the clear plastic just below the circular right vent port, that's where the used toner pours in. When you clean out the toner cartridge there is some residue left that makes the sensor think it's still full. Take a piece of paper towel and a small screwdriver (I'm told a bent coat hanger will work, too) and clean the inside of the sensor window inside the used toner cartridge (w/ access through the toner port). It looks like a little raised groove on the right. Just wipe it until it's clear on the inside. The sensor can now see through the window and you should be okay. Otherwise, the sensor may need to be replaced by an authorized Samsung technician. Let me know how it works out!

Ricoh CL3000 Laser Replace Waste toner


Couple of things to try: - If you just emptied the waste cartridge then you have to take the bottle back out and clean the insides as well. The sensor sees the toner on the walls and still thinks it?s full. FYI as typical the manufacturer recommends replacing the bottle with a brand new one. - If not that then you may have toner covering the optical sensor. Try blowing the area where the waste bottle attaches to the printer with canned air. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
