SOURCE: MESSAGE REPLACE/ INSTALL TONER WASTE TANK EVEN THOGHT I HAVE REPLACE IT ON A SAMSUNG CLX-3160 FN


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.

Continue printing.

SOURCE: CLX 3160 waste toner tank error message

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.

SOURCE: replace waste toner container message

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.

Samsung 3170 reset imaging unit


The drum fills up with waste toner and you can empty it but its messy and you need to clean everything carefully after taking it apart. Take out the imaging unit, unloosen the screws on both sides, unmount the retainer springs and push the center pin out of the drum. Take out the drum and unscrew the two screws that were hidden behind the drum. Now take away all parts so that you can empty the waste drum container. Clean everything especially the light emitting panel, drum and white plastic cover needs to be clean. Hope this helps.

The wast toner bin on the clx.3175 needs to be replace how do i remove the bin out the printer


Open door where toner cartridges are. On left side of cartridges below the Colour Letters is a small black handle. Just pull the handle and the bin comes out. You can't simply empty the bin and re-use, you need to order a new one from Samsung. Only costs $25 and just push in. Very easy, just need to wait for part to be ordered in and then collect it, which took me a week.

How to solve the problom of 'install/replace toner waste bin'?


Laser printers "print" by throwing toner onto a electrostatically-charged drum. The ink that sticks is then heated, and melts into the paper. The ink that does not stick falls into the "waste-bin".
Eventually, that waste-bin gets full, and needs to be removed, and emptied.

Samsung clx-2160 says waste tank is full. What must I do and where is the waste tank?


If you open the front of the printer then you will find a waste tank in the left side - its gray. Take it out and empty it, and put the tank back in place.
This works for Samsung CLX-2160
