ColorQube 8570DN "Waste Tray Missing"

This printer is having mulitiple issues, but the main one right now is that it is indicating that the waste tray is missing. I know the waste tray is not missing because I have pulled it out and emptied the tray and inserted back in. How can I get the printer to recognize the waste tray is there?

Tried all that was suggested.  Waited ten minutes before re insertering waste tray.  turned off printer for an hour.  Still no way to remove the error message

Re: ColorQube 8570DN "Waste Tray Missing"

Hi, TorBill!


This is the different reasons to the error message and solutions:
1. Waste Tray missing or not fully seated.
a. Fully install the Waste Tray.


2. Connector not fully seated.
a. Check the I/O Board connector P/J102 for proper mating.


3. Check that the Waste Tray Sensor is correctly installed at the end of the Waste Tray


If you're unsure on how to do this, I would recommend calling an engineer.


Best Regards

Check to ensure the waste tray sensor is nor damaged or has been knocked off.

Sensor looks like it is loose inside.  Any way to repair?
