If it's the "waste toner container", and there is no other new ones to replace it, then the answer is YES!! Be careful though, cause it can get messy. I work with copiers all the time at my job, and we do this OFTEN!! :)

Hope this helps. :)

WASTE TONER IS FULL ERROR


You have to empty out the waste toner bottle... The bottle is a milky white plastic and I believe it is right under the fuser unit. It should slid out toward you. Carefully dump the toner out of the bottle into a plastic garbage bag and re install the bottle and you are done....

Ricoh aficio Aficio 3224C used toner bottle -1 is full


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.

Can you throw away in regular waste trash the full toner waste bottle?


Yes. You might want to put in inside a plastic garbage bag. The toner is mainly plastic.

Ricoh aficio 350's will not print


I believe it say "empty waste toner". The waste toner is located within the transfer belt unit, which is the brown belt on the inside of the left cover when you open it.
You will see on the left side (towards front of copier) a small brown lever to release the belt assembly. Lift up the lever, then lift the belt unit from the top and pull out.
This gets pretty messy, so be prepared.........
to remove the belt from the housing, remove the 2 springs on the left and right sides, this will allow the belt unit to swing upward once you release the black locking tab on one end (the NON-GEARED end i believe)
Remove the belt and DO NOT tip the unit or you'll really have a mess. Mind the gear on the end, because it will simply slide off. Try to touch the belt as little as possible and be careful not to damage it.
You'll now see a rubber blade, and underneath that is the storage compartment for waste toner. Get a large plastic bag, and start dumping...there is a lot in here and it will be very messy, so be careful, and consider using some gloves.
once emptied. Clean unit with DRY rags, reassemble, and reinstall.
That should do it.

Please rate my solution :)

How do i empty the used toner?


WAIT!!! Don't let Ricoh Steal your money...

You're going to get a little bit dirt with the trick, but there is no need to buy a empty waste toner bottel

Empty the waste toner bottle inside a plastic bag, the dust is kind of azard!!!, when the bottle is empty, clean it from the outside.
Place the bottle in the printer, (This is just for reference only), in the right side of the bottle you're going to see a plastic tag all dirty (You see it?) OK!!, remove the bottle from the printer, and then very carfully remove that plastic tag from the bottle taking care of not ripping it off, now clean the plastic tag, and put it in place again, and now your printer is ready to work!!!!!
Where's the trick?, The printer has a Photo sensor that is "looking" trugh this plastic tag, when the plastic tag is full of toner, the sensor can't get the signal, and then it says that the waste bottle is full..!!!

TONY!!

Waste toner disposal procedure


It's not recommended to empty this as it contains 4 colored toners and you would heve to ensure that the light sensor sees completely clear in the view area. Replace the bottle with type 155 waste toner bottle (about $25) from on line supplier. To do this is simply a matter of opening the right side cover and sliding the green lock lever to the unlock position. Then remove the bottle and replace. Don't forget to slide the green lock lever to the lock position and close the cover.
