Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I use a Lexmark color laser printer. Used toner accumulates in the waste toner bottle. Can I throw the toner away in the trash and reuse the bottle, or am I supposed to throw the used toner and bottle away together? Is used toner hazardous waste?

The excess toner can just be discarded, and it will not be hazardous to the environment. Toner is simply a dyed carbon powder. I would recommend rinsing it down the drain or disposing it into a plastic bag to prevent a big mess. Toner is very difficult to clean up if you spill it, so clean carefully.

Can I fix waste toner fill box is full by pulling it out and emptying then putting back in. Workio 2010


The waste toner bottle can be emptied but you must clean it out with COLD water after you have emptied it...NOT HOT.
The machine "looks thro" the neck of the bottle to tell if its empty or full so if you empty the bottle and put it back on "dirty" then the copier might still think its full!!

Add Toner message will not go away


Unplug the unit and remove the trays, toner, etc. stripping it down to the base unit. Look inside the fax and look to see if the drum has dumped large amounts of loose toner into the inside of the printer. (you can put you hand in there if you really can't tell) If it has, you will need to get the inside cleaned out before the sensors will work correctly. This is really hard and you will need to find the best method to clean it out. But I can tell you what not to do and what works for me...

1) Compressed air is a bad idea. Tried it and it just throws up a huge toner cloud that covers the whole office and every sensor in the printer with toner dust. then you throw it away.

2) Disassembling and scrubbing down the printer is slow but works pretty well.

3) Spraying an alcohol based spray cleaner around the sensor areas works sometimes if you avoid spraying greased components and is pretty quick.

Pagepro printer toner empty problem


1. It tries to pump toner into a reservoir. If it doesn't activate a full sensor for the reservoir, it shows toner low. 2. Take the toner out and shake it hard about 10 times, this will make any settled toner loose, and should solve this. The problem is normally caused by old toner (your supplier might have had it on their shelf for a year or two).

Lanier Copy Machine 3635


Is this a small table top model? They usually do not have a waste bottle. The waste toner accumulates is the drum housing Where hopefully the change drum warning will come on before the waste toner fills up and causes poor copies. I have taken the drum asm apart and vacuumed the toner out.
