The Waste Toner Cartridge must be VERY clean, especially around the "bump" directly below the left side hole. After I CAREFULLY emptied the old toner out, I used air compressor to clean every bit of toner out from inside. Then I wiped the whole area around the "bump" where the sensor "sees" if the tank is empty. Even a slight film over the area will not allow for reuse. If you do this, it works every time.

You have to make sure it is very clean. If there is any toner near the sensor, it will detect it as full.

How to clean waste toner tank


1st don't wear a new shirt when doing this !!!!

waste toner tanks are not meant to be reused (not saying you couldn't ) but its gonna make a mess doing it so id choose not to do iinside the office that's for sure , replacement tanks are available from same sources you buy toner cartridges from then just tape up the spout and toss old one away , some machines will require a manual reset of toner tank alarm , consult your manual to see how you do it
and if your dead set on cleaning it , what id do is buy one new one install it and take old one outside in a field miles from nowhere using 91% isopropanol alcohol and a hand full of old rags (disposable gloves too) id wipe it clean ,then store it under machine in paper storage box (not tray) so its there ready to use next time you need it

Waste Toner Error Message For Samsung CLP 550


Dr. P,
Printer will display "Waste Toner Tank Full/Not Installed" error message if the waste tank is full of toner or not installed.
  • Open the waste tank door and check for the waste toner tank.
  • If the tank is full or not intalled, install a new tank.

If you have user guide, it will show you how to install the waste toner tank.

Sometimes you will also get this error message if the Waste Toner sensor is covered with toner powders.
  1. Remove your waste tank and look for the black plastic on the right side after removing the waste tank.
  2. You sould find small openings on each side in the black casing.
  3. Use Q-tips or thin cotton object to clean the inside the small opening.
for user manual just click here:

If this solution works, please don't forget to rate it fixya

For any more question just ask me.

Thanks
Iqbal

I've replaced the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle, but the display still says 'toner low' and 'waste toner near full'. It refuses to print, even with the old cartridges.


Then you mite want to clean the sensor that monitor the waster toner box pull out the waste toner box and look for the area that show clear plastic then look for those area of the machine and blow the old toner from those areas waste toner mite have gotten on the sensor saw they can not see the clear plastic and think that the waste toner cart is still full.

How to clean waste tray


The printer uses an optical sensor to determine when the tank is full. There are clear plastic ports on the side of the tank that the light needs to penetrate in order for the printer to work, otherwise it will generate waste toner tank full error and stop printing.The easiest way to clean the waste toner tank, is to remove it from the printer, and dump the contents into a trashcan. Tap it a few times to get as much as you can. Then take some soap and water and partially fill the tank. Then take the green cap and place it over the tank opening. Shake the soapy water in the tank a few times to clean it. Then dump the soapy, toner water in the sink. Add some tap water into the tank and replace the cap and shake then drain. You don't need to get the tank completely clean, just enough to allow light to past through the clear plastic port. Dry the outside of the tank and and reinstall into the printer. Hope this helps you.

I keep cleaning the toner/printer waste tank cartridge and the printer continues to stop printing and the same error message displays saying "Replace/Install waste toner printer cartridge.


How are you cleaning the tank? Just dumping the contents into a trashcan may not work. The printer uses a light sensor to detect whether the tank is full. When the light does not shine through the clear window of the tank, the printer thinks that the tank is full. Sometimes cleaning the window with a cotton swab will make it work, but it can be difficult since the location of the window with respect to the opening of the tank is not a straight shot.

Another way to clean it would be dump the waste toner into ther trashcan. Tap the tank a few time to get as much of the toner out. Then add some soap and water into the tank and seal the tank opening with the green lid. Then shake the soapy water in the tank for a about a minute. Then dump the soapy toner/water out. Rinse again with just water and and allow it to dry. You don't have to get the tank completely clean, just enough to stop the waste tank error message.

Hope this helps.

Xerox work centre 7120 message say change waster toner, I found where it is but how do I change it


You can either dump out the waste toner into a garbage bag, or replace the whole toner collector. If you decide to dump it out yourself, you need to make sure that the container is extremely clean prior to reinstalling it into your copier, as sensors on the copier end detect the level of used toner by optic sensor.

The waste toner tank may be full. Please open the front cover( where the toner bottles are located).
You will find a transparent "L " shaped box is the waste toner tank.
You may pull it out and replace it.
