    I did do this too, but then after a few pages the error came back. I've tried cleaning all over it, and cannot find the sensor if any.

Hi, moved my Kyocera FS 3830 and it now says check waste toner box. Have replaced toner cartridge, recovery bottle, pulled cover off and cleaned all surplus toner out of insides and under carriage. What next? Where can I get a service manual. We are in Tanzania so no in country support for Kyocera machines. Appreciate any help and step by step advice.

You have to empty out the waste toner bottle... The bottle is a milky white plastic and I believe it is right under the fuser unit. It should slid out toward you. Carefully dump the toner out of the bottle into a plastic garbage bag and re install the bottle and you are done....

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.

the error code for full waste toner is E019. To solve the problem, as you know, you need to clean/empty the waste toner box.
To do these:

On left side way of copier, in lower left angle, there is plastic cover with one screw. Unscrew and remove the plastic cover, then pull out to remove waste toner box. Empty it! With piece of clothe, clean the "neck" of the bottle, because on round inserts on neck, is where the sensor reads the FULL or OK state.
Put it back in and turn off and on the copier.

Hope that helps!

The check waste toner bottle message keeps showing up,even though its empty

Check that the bottle is also clean from toner residue especially around the top where the lid is.

Use a clean rag or paper towel to wipe away all the toner.inside and out.

This should make the message go away

Self test says 'check waste toner box'

It looks your waste toner box is full. Waste toner box collects toner drawn during printing. You have to remove waste toner bottle and empty it.

Follow the instructions to clean up toner bottle

Hope this helps

I dispose of toner and still keep getting messages

I assume when you say you dispose of toner you are emptying out the waste toner bottle and putting it back in the machine. if so here's your problem.
There is a sensor, mounted to the copier, just behind the waste toner bottle (on the upper righthand side). This sensor shoots a beam of light through a small portion of the waste bottle - if the beam is not received on the other side then the copier thinks the waste bottle is full. NOW...even if you have emptied it the interior of the bottle may still be dirty/black enough (leftover residue) to stop the beam from making it through the bottle - this gives you the message. You will need to put in a new bottle.

Waste bottle full...can i empty it and how??

Don't be conned out of your money by Konica or any salesmen. The waste bottle can easily be emptied. There is no sensor that 'gets tripped and can't be reset' this is bull*&%t. Just take the cartridge out. Go somewhere that you can dispose of the toner (make sure it's not windy !) then turn it to the 'locked' position. This opens the port, then just shake the thing back and forth for a few minutes. You can feel getting lighter. Then turn back to unlocked. Use a vacuum to remove toner from outside of cover, then a soft cloth or wipes to get it clean. Then put it back in.

How do i empty the used toner?

WAIT!!! Don't let Ricoh Steal your money...

You're going to get a little bit dirt with the trick, but there is no need to buy a empty waste toner bottel

Empty the waste toner bottle inside a plastic bag, the dust is kind of azard!!!, when the bottle is empty, clean it from the outside.
Place the bottle in the printer, (This is just for reference only), in the right side of the bottle you're going to see a plastic tag all dirty (You see it?) OK!!, remove the bottle from the printer, and then very carfully remove that plastic tag from the bottle taking care of not ripping it off, now clean the plastic tag, and put it in place again, and now your printer is ready to work!!!!!
Where's the trick?, The printer has a Photo sensor that is "looking" trugh this plastic tag, when the plastic tag is full of toner, the sensor can't get the signal, and then it says that the waste bottle is full..!!!
