<Cleaning and replacement> If detection error was seen by the sensor operation check, clean or replace the sensor by the procedure below. * Remove the toner bottle beforehand. (1) Remove the rear cover. It is preferable to remove also the drum cartridge and the developing unit. (2) Remove the control board unit. (3) Remove the motor and flywheel.

(4) Remove the toner supply unit.

* Clean the metal that holds the bottle tray and the bottle tray surface before cleaning the sensor. (5) Check the sensor installation condition.

If the sensor is not stable and interferes with the plastic part while pulling out/putting in the bottle tray, replace the sensor.

<> Clean the sensor. With the condition above, insert the nozzle of a commercially available air blower (used for OA equipments) in the sensor reception side (other side of the sensor in the photo). Enter the service mode and perform the sensor check. Blow away the toner. If the sensor operates correctly, reinstall the parts. With this state, install the control board unit (not fix it with screws, just hook the upper part and connect the connector).
