Waste Toner for GP200 series

If you have a moment I could really use some advice.

It is an extremely old copier and the "empty waste toner" message has been coming on for a few months now. If I open the front door and close it again the message goes away. But....it is a bit time consuming.

Do you happen to know how to empty the waste toner for this machine?

It also makes greyish black thick lines on the pages, would that be related to the waste toner cartridge being full?

Thank you so much for you time. I really appreciate it!

Rebekah

The waste toner is collected inside the drum cartridge. It can be emptied by removing the drum cartridge assy and opening the opaque window and emptying into a large bag. The lines on your copies are probably a symptom of the drum being worn out, so replacement is probably a better option. The drum is good for 60,000 copies.

Reset Waste Toner in a Brother


  1. Remove the full waste toner box per manual.
  2. Wear breathing protection as there will be toner dust in the air.
  3. Place flat in a work area and remove the 6 screws retaining the black box cover and carefully remove cover with box still flat on the work area. Be careful, the box is full of waste toner powder.
  4. Dispose of the waste toner by tipping into waste container, being careful not to inhale the powder. Use a blower or vacuum to remove final traces of waste toner from the box and clean all surfaces with a clean cloth.
  5. Place the box flat on the bench and inspect the clear sight-glass at the front. Inside will be a black flag which should be down on the bottom of the sight glass. If not, there is still waste toner in the front of the box which needs to be shaken or blown out.
  6. Replace the cover and 6 screws and replace the waste toner box in the printer.
  7. If error message still says replace waste toner box, then you need to check the sight glass again. The flag must be horizontal at the bottom of the glass or it is not completely empty.

Changing waste container


The is no waste container on Phaser 6500. There is a "waste collection box" in every toner cartridge and the waste toner is discarded along with the empty cartridge. The is also a waste toner reservoir on the transfer belt and this one will be replaced along with the transfer belt.

If there is an error message saying, for example, "Waste Full Cyan Cartridge", it means the waste toner counter reached the replacement value for that color and you have to replace the corresponding cartridge. But the waste collection box is not really full.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture


Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.

Waste toner message will not clear.


sir,

You open the front cover, there you can see the plastic bag. on the side of the cover you can see the intruction regarding the removing and refixing. actually it will be in white like colour and having a black bottle cap.

And also after you taken the waste toner catridge. you can see one sensor below a pipe like that which is projecting from the drum unit , it is the waste toner path. Inside this the waste toner auger will be there. you just clean the sensor because you may also get the waste toner error by the sensor.

1. sensor below the auger after the waste toner catridge.
2. waste toner catridge outside and inside. dispouse the toner and also clean the otside part will cloth , beause some projections some holes like that will be there. i told na that sensor will be passing the signals through this waste toner catridge projection. If any toner in that projection then also the same. Be causreful while you are disposing the toner. You may intake and also your properties may be having the black coating like that.

any clarifications mail me at ramanathanr@integramicro.com .

The copier has an "eye" that detects when the waste toner bottle is full. If you dump it and reuse it, the residue can build up and cause the machine to "think" the bottle is still full. I experienced the same problem. If you re-use an old bottle, after emptying, rinse our any remaining residue and dry the bottle out. Your copier should then notice the bottle being empty.

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.
