Getting a false error message that the ink/toner is empty and wastebin is full when i print to my phaser 8860 from a macbook on 10.6 (networked printer)

The waste bin full error can occur if the waste bin was not removed from the machine for over 10 seconds when it was emptied. Please remove the waste bin and wait for a full 10 to 20 seconds before replacing the Waste bin.

If the message still displays turn off the machine and leave it off for 1 minute then turn the machine back on.

Then run software update to make sure you have the latest OS updates.

Then delete the printer and re-add the printer.

My printer, epson stylus R230, shows this message ' Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. ' How can I solve this problem?

You need to reset your printer. Google search for "indoreset for r230", that is the program that you can use to reset your printer. Or you can use the SSC Service Utility, just search for it in the net. You particularly need to reset the waste ink pad counter.

After you reset your printer, check the back of your r230, you will see there a small access cover with a screw. Unscrew it. Take a look inside and you will see a tube connected to the waste ink tank, try to disconnect it from the waste ink tank, carefully pulling it out the access window. Do not force it out completely, you will be able to pull out only about an inch of the tube. When the tube is out, get another tube (silicon or plastic) around 6 inches long would do (12 inches will be fine)that would fit in that tube you've just pulled out, then get an empty plastic bottle with a cover, puncture a hole in the cover and put the other end of the tube in that hole, that plastic bottle will be your new waste ink tank. You are doing all these so you don't have to dismantle your printer to remove and replace the waste ink pads inside.

After doing all these you can now use your printer again. You just need to empty the plastic bottle regularly. And when the time comes to reset your printer again, just use the program again and that's it.

Waste toner is almost full on Ricoh aficio AP3800C

Open the main front cover and you will see the white plastic waste toner bottle on the left hand side halfway up. I lies on its side and you can see the bottom of it.

Slide it out gently keeping it level to avoid spilling all the waste toner.

Either replace with a fresh empty waste bottle or empty the bottle into a large plastic bag you can keep sealed with the bottle inside while you shake it.

You have a good chance of spilling the toner all over your clothes if you are not carefull and note that the waste toner IS HIGHLY INFLAMMABLE so no naked flames nearby!!

Waste tonner tank

The waste toner container is inside the front cover at the bottom right. If you work for a business you should purchase a new one. If not you may be able to empty it into a another container and seal it before putting into the bin.
