Hello tandi,
I can help you. First, lets establish a point of reference which will be you satnding at the copier as if you were about to make a copy. The waste toner bottle is located on the left side,lower rear corner. If you have a stapler/sorter you will need to release it from the copier and slide it away from the copier. Notice the small cover that is @ the lower left corner of the copier. Remove the single screw that holds the cover and then remove the cover. The waste toner bottle is now exposed. It even has a hande so that you may slide the bottel STRAIGHT OUT not up or down. Carefully empty the bottle into a trash bag while keeping in mind that holding it low and pouring it slow will avoid a Hiroshima style mess. Once the bottle is empty, look at the "neck" of the bottle. There are "clear windows" at the top of the neck of the bottle. But right now they are not "clear" since they are covered in toner. That's how the copier determines if the bottle is full or not. It shines a beam through the lenses and as long as the beam is not broken the copier is happy.When enough toner rises in the bottle to break the beam the copier "assumes" the bottle is full. So now that you have emptied the bottle you need to use a Q-tip or such to clean your windows ! :-).Re install everything. Turn the "TRUE" main power switch off, or unplug, and then power back up. Happy copying. Please let "fixya" know if I helped. SPINAL

The waste toner bottle is hidden behind the front cover of the machine. Just under where you fit the toner cartridge.
If you are competant with a screwdriver, remove this cover and you will find the Waste container. The screws for the cover are hidden behind a rubber bung.
