WHERE IS THE WASTE TONER COMPARTMENT?
A shopper on May 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

The waste toner compartment is located under the toner along the bottom of the machine. If you open the front panel it sits directly below the toner. To remove it for replacement, you will have to remove paper Tray 1 first then the waste toner compartment.

is there a draft color mode for printing that would save print toner? We would like to print color in a toner saving mode for our draft copies.
Pat F on Aug 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello,

This machine does not have the native ability to perform toner saving (and thus when using the PCL driver). If the Postscript option has been purchased and installed and the Postscript driver is being used, there is a Toner Saving setting for reducing toner use. This item is found within the driver's properties, under Detailed Settings, in the Print Quality menu.
