E086 is an ADC sensor error, it is usually caused by a piece of paper caught between the rollers of the photoconductor/IDT unit. Open the front cover, operate the latch inside the handle & turn the handle to the bottom position. Pull the handle to draw out the IDT unit until it stops. Gently lift the orange handle on top of the unit to remove the PCU. Treat these parts gently and avoid shining bright light at them as they are very sensitive. Check for & remove any paper and clean any toner spills with a soft cloth or air duster being careful not to scratch the delicate surfaces. Reassemble in reverse order. Hopefully all will now be well, please take a moment to rate the success of this suggestion.

Thanks for writing to Fixya.com.

It sounds like a hardware problem. However, you can try to re-install the printer and its driver just to be sure. Please replace the ink cartridge and used compressed air to clean the printer a bit and it worked fine. If these does not work then the printer is having major hardware problem and it might be time for a new one.
Thanks for contacting Fixya and please accept the solution if it has helped you.

Hi, Waste toner container collects all the unused toner from inside the machine after every cycling, unfortunately the container gets filled up and needs6f1b8e0.jpg to be emptied at intervals. The container looks like the image inserted, just open up your printer and locate the container and empty it then reset and all will be well.

this error refers to a misalignment of the carousel, i have one that randomly does it at the moment, i also have a replace black toner even though the toner is full, i'll get back to ya when i find a fix, the service manual says it can either be the 2nd motor, clutch or sensor, but in my case all three are working fine.

Really silly answer....

Nope there is nothing to hold in etc. try rotating the belt a little and ensure that the cam in the top left corner at the back inside the area where the belt goes, is turned away from the belt area.

After that a series of damn good hard thrusts, should see you home.

I don't know anything about this printer but look for a small switch where the waste box attaches to the printer. When you locate it press it in and if the "install waste box" goes out you simply have to devise some way to keep the switch pressed all the time. Try some super glue, or maybe a simple piece of paper folded up. Good luck.
