Is there a way to empty the waste toner bottle for a Konica Minolta Magicolor 550 printer? I'm a teacher with zero budget, using a donated printer.

**Disclaimer** Following these instructions may expose you to fine particulate matter. We sometimes run into situations where customers just will not pay for a replacement waste bin. I am not 100% sure with Minolta but we do this with Lexmark printers all the time. Remove the waste bin and attach a plastic bag over the hole where the toner enters from the printer. Seal it as much as possible. Hold the toner bin so that the hole is facing down and tap it lightly. This should cause the toner to fall back out of the waste bin into the bag. When you have gotten as much out as possible, wait for the dust to settle and then pinch off the bag as you remove the bin. Seal the bag and dispose of. Use a dry cloth (swiffer)to wipe any excess toner from the bin. Put bin back in and restart the printer. This should give you some more life. If you get toner on yourself or clothes, rinse in cold water not hot. Hot water will bond the toner to your clothes.

Magicolor 4650 waste toner box, can I empty it myself?


Yes you can, it's easy but can be messy. I use a standard doggie pickup bag from any pet store. Just wrap it around the mouth of the bottle, leaving some air space, and tie it off with a rubber band, then shake and tap the bottle until most of the toner has been transferred to the bag. Dispose of the bag in office trash, and be careful. You don't want to breathe too much toner dust, it can be bad for your health. It should start right back up when you reinstall the bottle.

WHERE IS THE WASTE BUCKET ON PRINTER KONICA 4690MF


Found this on the support site

When the waste toner bottle becomes full, the message "WASTE TONER
FULL/REPLACE BOTTLE"

Konica/Minolta Support

Go to "Ch. 7 replacing consumables" > "Replacing Consumables" > "Replacing the Waste Toner Bottle" this is found on page 165 of the user guide. This walks you through replacing the waste toner bottle.

Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!

Toner level


To check the toner level, there is a little clear window on each cartridge you can use for this purpose. Hold the cartridge vertically. If you see toner in the window, it is more than half full (or less than half empty, ha!). If not, slowly tilt the cartridge toward the side with the window. Essentially, how far you tilt it before you see toner determines how far below half full it is. If you pass a 45 degree angle before the toner appears in the window, it is nearing empty and must be replaced or refilled (yes, refilling is an option).

If you do have to replace or refill, don't forget to empty the waste toner bottle (responsibly, of course). By the time you run low on toner in one of your cartridges, the waste toner bottle will likely be nearing capacity.
