Check your waste toner box. At the side of the printer is a container for the extra toner to be stored. Everytime you change your cartridge you need to change the waste toner container. Carefully open side panel and remove waste toner bottle. There is a button you need to push do not force the bottle out.
Remove lid of new waste toner bottle and put into place and close side panel. Follow link for further details or use your setup guide that came with the printer on how to install the waste toner bottle.

There is one more think that I can stongly advise you.
You should clean the spot with an wet handkerchief. Try to push the button where you put the top of your waste tonerbox, and wipe it. It was useful for me, and sloved the same problem.
By the way tehere is one more think. There is an gray button. Try to make it totally vertical!

SOURCE: I keep cleaning the toner/printer

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.

SOURCE: I get error message "waste

Open the right side door. there at the bottom is a long plastic bottle full of waste toner. If you have no spare bottle then carefully (dont create dust) empty toner into a bin liner. Now tap the bottle on the table to allow any toner on the sides to fall back to the bottom. now refit and all should be well.

SOURCE: Error message after installing new tonner

Check the little switch/door on the left hand side of the drums.
This has worked successfully for me.

Symptom:
After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.

Cause:
The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.




Resolution:
Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

I keep getting an error message stating to install a waste toner box and close all doors.


Printers usually have a waste collector where excess toner is collected. Obviously, yours needs to be changed.

Changing waste container


The is no waste container on Phaser 6500. There is a "waste collection box" in every toner cartridge and the waste toner is discarded along with the empty cartridge. The is also a waste toner reservoir on the transfer belt and this one will be replaced along with the transfer belt.

If there is an error message saying, for example, "Waste Full Cyan Cartridge", it means the waste toner counter reached the replacement value for that color and you have to replace the corresponding cartridge. But the waste collection box is not really full.

Brand new lexmark original cartridge is not recognised. error report' no cartridge'. all contacts cleaned machine dismantled and cleaned and reassembled. has done this before on occasion with refilled...


1. Open the top front cover of the printer. If the display DOES NOT read Close cover or Insert cartridge, the 32 error is not caused by the toner cartridge and printer service will be required to fix the problem.

2. Make sure the correct toner cartridge is installed for this printer model.
1. Check Lexmark for a list of compatible cartridges for your printer.
2. If the wrong toner cartridge is installed, remove it and install the correct one.

3. If the correct toner cartridge is installed, it may not be seated correctly. To ensure that this is not the cause of the error, do the following:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Reseat the toner cartridge.
3. Close the lid.
4. Power the printer back on and check the display.

4. If reseating the toner cartridge does not clear the error message and the error started as soon as you installed this particular toner cartridge, the cartridge may be broken. You can check this as follows:
1. Power off the printer and then reinstall the old cartridge. (You can also try a different new cartridge to see if that clears the error.)
2. If the error does disappear, the problem may lie with this cartridge. Please contact the point of purchase, especially if the cartridge is brand new out of the box.

5. If the error cannot be cleared by putting in a new toner cartridge or one that is known to be working, the printer may require service to fix the problem.

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.
