How to fix waste toner cartridge Canon IR 3380

I recently ran into an issue where my Canon ir3380 gave the error "replace waste toner cartridge" and would not print any more. The waste toner cartridges are pretty expensive, but with this simple 'hack' I was able to get back printing in no time. How to reset waste toner cartridge error in 5 minutes. #1 remove waste toner cartridge #2 empty contents (gently) in a waste container. (note, BE CAREFUL not to breathe in the toner. have a fine mist spray bottle ready to water down the dust with repeated sprays of water mist as you are emptying the toner waste into your second waste container. I used a plain plastic bag in a waste basket) #3 When you have most of the toner out of the cartridge through the neck (don't need to be completely empty), go to next step. #4 you will notice a small clear plastic rectangular piece held in with two small phillips screws on the bottom corner of your waste cartridge. Remove the two screws and gently dump the toner out of this little piece and clean it (so its clear) with a cotton swab. Then reattach and tighten both screws back in. (There is an optical sensor in the main printer that detects the waste toner level with this piece, so once its clean again, then the printer will reset the error). #5 Replace the waste toner cartridge and you are back in business!

How to fix the waste toner cartridge error on a xerox 6505DN printer


Hi, check out the forums on this model, but you will be frustrated.

This is usually an error when a non-Xerox certified toner cartridge is used. If you can, try to get an original Xerox toner cartridge and see if the error clears. If you know someone else who has a working cartridge you can use that, to see if the issue clears.

Display fax gives a warning "received in memory" we also have a warning "prepare black toner" We can not print the fax! What can we do?


Generally the "received in memory" message is a result of the machines inability to print. I.E. It received a fax, attempted to print it, failed, and then stored it in memory to print once the issue has been corrected.

The Prepare Black Toner error is likely directly related. If the toner cartridge is empty, inserted incorrectly, or damaged it could be causing this error. Try reseating the cartridge by removing and reinserting. If that doesn't clear the error try replacing it with a new Canon branded cartridge.

As soon as you correct the printing issue the stored faxes will print.

The screen on my Phaser 6110 MFP says "Remove/Install Waste toner tank." I don't know what that is.


The life of the waste toner container unit is approximately 1,250 pages

for full color 5% image printing or 5,000 images for black printing. When

the life span of the waste toner container has expired, Replace/Install

Waste Toner Tank appears on the display of the control panel,

indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise

your printer stops printing.

To replace the waste toner container:

1 Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to

cool.

2 Open the front cover.

3 Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.

4 Remove the container's cap from the container as shown below,

and use it to close the waste toner container opening.

5 Take a new waste toner container out of its package.

Tip

Make sure that you lay the waste toner container on a flat

surface so that the toner does not spill.

Caution

Do not tilt or turn the tank over.

6 Insert the new container into position and then push it to make sure

that it is firmly seated in place.

7 Close the front cover firmly.

8 Turn the machine on.

Caution

If the front cover is not completely closed, the machine will not

operate.

Tip

After rebooting, your machine will automatically reset the
counter for the waste toner container

(6981A002AA) for imagerunner 2200, 2800, 3300 Print Server: I have also facing the same problem of Error code ...


So, you need to do next:

Because of statics and plastic bottle, the toner is collected on bottle neck, where is two circles. Even if bottle isnt full but the neck of bottle is dirty the error will occure.
Clean the neck with dry cloath, and then with some antistatic detergent, this will take care of the bottle.

But more permanent solution is to disconnect the waste toner sensor. You will see it above the waste toner bottle.Its a white connector with wires. Pull it out.
But then you need to take a very good care of amount of waste toner in bottle, because if it gets too full it could broke the waste toner gears. So that means that you must every time when you replace the drum, empty the bottle too.

Toshiba E-Studio 202L cartridge does not match manufacture


Did you replace the waste (used) toner cartridge or the empty toner cartridge? These copiers have 2 "cartridges" .... one is waste (used) toner, the other is "new" toner for copying / printing etc. Some newer copiers have All in One units....Drum, New Toner, Waste (used) Toner. If you replaced the Waste Toner container (or dumped it) that should reset the code or error message.
