    We had this problem once before. After a while someone has disabled the "Waste toner is full" notification, and copier continued to be used with full used toner container.

    After some time used toner began spilling inside the machine all over, and since toner is corrosive it caused damage to bunch of bearing shafts.

    When the tech finaly came he had to order bunch of new shafts and bearing; the bill came to over $1000 for parts and labor. When he was done he said that all we had to do is empty the damn container, and it will be good for another year or two.

    All you have to do is remove and empty the used toner container, which is not as easy as replacing the main toner bottle.

    Although I remember tech telling us about the used toner container, I do not remember where it is.

    Is it a part of the developer unit (there is a small black container attached)?

There is not waste toner bottle. Bite the bullet and call a tech. All you will do is make a mess and break things.

6030 display

KM-6030 or FS-6030. if it is the fs open the fron door, remove the waste bottle and replace it with a new one (they come with the toner). if it is a KM or CS 6030 that should be covered under your service plan. if you are running a segment 3 machine without a service contract you need to reevaluate your situation.

After empying the waste toner bottle, the same waste toner bottle error still reigns on the copier screen.

The copier uses a photo sensor to determine when to replace the bottle. If the inside of the bottle is covered with toner, it thinks the bottle is still full. There should be a projection on the back of the bottle that fits into the sensor. You can try to clean the inside of the projection, but don't use any kind of liquid, use a dry cloth. You may have to buy another bottle. New ones should come with the toner. dood luck.

The toner is leaking all over... Is that a cartridge problem or a machine problem? I no longer have a service contract and rarely use the machine so I don't want to pay for service


Try to check if there is a waste toner bottle for this unit and clean or empty it. Otherwise the cartridge is defective that cause leaking when printing. Replacing would normally solve your problem. Regards

Minolta EP2010 CSPro copier: Where does the develper bottle go??? I see the Toner MT 102a bottle but where does the Develper bottle install. Or does the toner bottle already have the develper filings?

When the developer is added during normal replacement, the developer bottle is installed in place of the toner bottle. Then when the F8 mode is initiated from the service mode the developer is added into the developer unit and automatically calibrated. This is only done after the old developer has been cleaned from the DV unit.
The toner bottle contains no developer. The developer is replaced separately and only needs to be changed about every 80,000 pages.
Good Luck and Thnak You for using Fixya.

Need to change the Waste Toner Bottle on Ricoh FW870

Depends on the model, if you open the right door as to remove a jam does it have a brown 4 or so inch belt on the door you opened? If it does the lite grey lever on the front side lift up to tpo and lift out assy. Take off the 2 springs and release the tab so as to lift the brown belt portion off dump the toner out of assy and reassemble. -Carl

C250 Waste toner

Actually you are supposed to replace the whole container.
You can order this as part of your service contract just like toner, the cost would be included.

If you are shaking it out, be aware it is VERY flamable in such a fine powdered state.

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.

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.
