If you remove the drum unit and cartridge it will all come out in one go.

Open the right hand end. The black T700 cartrige will be seen and it looks as if it is screwed in. However it is NOT just get a firm grip and pull the entire unit out (It snaps in and is quite tight... keep pulling it will come and there are no clips to break as you pull)

As it is removed, all the paper will come out in one go. A bit daunting if you have not done it before. Refit is the exact reverse, push it in quite firmly and it will latch back in place with a pleasing clunk! Hope that helps.

When you change the toner cartridges you have to take out the whole Drum and Toner unit and unclip the toner from the drum unit. The Drum when you are replacing it is the DR7000 unit. Replace this unit and clip your toner unit back onto the new drum unit and re-install it in the printer and follow the instructions that came with the replacement drum unit to reset the drum counter.

that error usually indicates that the toner has reached its end of life
or the drum is not properly installed.

i had one person who put the toner in but threw the drum cartridge away.
