An 1118 process unit has a 100k life @5% average coverage in my experience the usually last about 85k when the waste toner is full it's generally near the end of life of the unit the fact that you're getting black marks in the pages says to me that there is drum decay which is also a signs of the process unit life nearing its end

I have a aficio mp c4000 printer/copier. it is telling me the waste toner bottle is full. where is the waste toner bottle?

The wast toner is placed next (next) to the first tray.
To reach there open the front door and you will see a screw (placed on top toward the main swith).
After unscrew you will be able to open a small door that hides the waste toner bottle.
Be careful because it is a little messy.
Good luke. If you need extra help reply to me

Hello Om,
I gotcha fixed! The Canon IR3220 uses an infrared beam that detects the waste tonel level. So even if the bottle is truly empty it win't make the copier happy. Look at the "neck " of the waste toner bottle. If you look closely you will see a set of "windows"( Round disks) that the copier shines light through. When the waste toner level rises to the point that it blocks the light then the copier assumes the bottle is full. Now, even though you have emptied the bottle, those disks/windows are still clouded and so the light can't shine through. Clean them with a Q tip or remove them and clean them. You did it!!!!!! Aren't you smart!!! Please let "FIXYA" know I helped you. Have a good weekend,weekday, week life! :-) SPINAL

Waste tonner tank

The waste toner container is inside the front cover at the bottom right. If you work for a business you should purchase a new one. If not you may be able to empty it into a another container and seal it before putting into the bin.

Error mfessage: check wastt tonner bottle

Try a new bottle. I've seen where the there's enough old toner clining to the sides of the bottle that prevent the sensor from seeing through it. Of course the sensor and led may be covered with old toner. Get in there with a vacuum when the machines off and clean it out.

How do I change the waste toner bottle for a ricoh sp c410?

Drill a 3/4" hole in lower left side of waste toner bottle. Waste toner is very fine and will get all over the place – you also may want a breathing mask. Take outside and dump waste in large ziplock bag and dispose properly. Put a large piece of shipping tape and cover hole. Put back into ricoh c410. This wi;; save you about $50 and less plastic in our landfills. SG
