  3. Pull the green tabs sideways (1), and then grasp and pull the tabs with both hands (2) to remove the waste toner bottle.

  7. Power on the printer/MFP again.

    Did this clear the error?

    • Yes: Issue resolved. The error can occur if the toner bottle is not properly inserted.
    • No: If the issue returns, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local authorized service provider for additional assistance.
