Waste toner tank full/not install keep displaying

The sensor for the waste toner tank is dirty or defective. The toner sensor is on the right as you look at the panel just below the liquid crystal display. There is a bump in the clear plastic just below the circular right vent port, that's where the used toner pours in. When you clean out the toner cartridge there is some residue left that makes the sensor think it's still full. Take a piece of paper towel and a small screwdriver (I'm told a bent coat hanger will work, too) and clean the inside of the sensor window inside the used toner cartridge (w/ access through the toner port). It looks like a little raised groove on the right. Just wipe it until it's clear on the inside. The sensor can now see through the window and you should be okay. Otherwise, the sensor may need to be replaced by an authorized Samsung technician. Let me know how it works out!

Samsung CLP 500 Error message 'Replace transfer roller'

You need to enter the hidden engineer menu: turn the printer off then turn on again whilst holding down the enter key on the control panel. It should say something like EDC menu on the display and you can scroll through several menus to find the one about resetting counters. Be careful not to play with other options as you can screw the printer up if you don't know what you're doing!

Transfer belt errors

I saw this posted somewhere on the internet and it worked for me.

Take out the transfer unit and look at the bottom. One side has visible wires. Open the side panel on that side. Follow the 3 wires to a C shaped sensor held in with a screw. Remove the sensor and blow canned air in the slots on the inside of the C. Put it all back together and hope for the best.
