When this happened, I took the tank out and shook it out into a garbage can (do this outside and be very careful not to breathe the dust). I then took a shop vac and held the hose at the opening while blowing compressed air into the tank. Wiggle the air nozzle around and you'll get out 99% of the toner. Pay extra attention to the sensor optics (plastic bulges on the sides of the tank).These need to be clean since the printer knows when the tank is full because the toner blocks light shining from one side of the tank to the other
Reinstall the tank and be sure it is fully inserted. If they printer is still on, turn it OFF. Close the front door of the machine and turn it back on.

Empting the waste toner tank does not always fix this problem. Samsung shines a light through the tank with a photo receptor on the other side. If it the photo receptor does not see enough light, it will trigger the replace waste tank message.
You can fix this by trying to clean the clear window portion of the tank with a q-tip. This is difficult to do since there are parts of this window which is hard to clean with a q-tip.
Or you could wash it out with soapy water until the window is clear of toner. Allow the tank to dry and reinstall.

SOURCE: Samsung CLX 3170 scanner locked
Many scanners contain a scanning head lock to keep the scanning head from moving during shipping. This may still be still be in the lock position. All scanners are different but check the documentation on how to remove the head lock.

I have a CLX-2160N and have just emptied my own waste toner container. (Disclaimer: not sure how toxic or environmentally friendly this is).
Emptied carefully and thoroughly (fine dust). Immersed in bowl of warm soapy water, and vigorous shaking to get nice and clean.
Shook all water out well, and dried off as much as possible. Reinstalled. Turned printer back on. Hey presto - seems happy.
