  • Xerox waste toner bottle on backorder????

    Is anyone else having issues with waste toner bottles being backordered? I was completely out and had to borrow a couple from DYP. Now we have a couple on the shelf and are good for the moment but won't last long. Not sure how they expect us to print if we can't get waste toners.

    Also lately about half of the time when I try to log in to metered supplies I can't get in but see the screen below. Anyone else having that issue?

    In an emergency, depending on the shape and placement of your toner bottle, you can cut a hole in it, dump it and reuse it. Just sayin'.

      I know you can dump them. We have done that and it works but it is a mess.

        I know we had a heck of a time with getting them a few years back for our 700's. Guess some things never change. We ended up frankensteining a few so we could dump them into a sealed trash bag and reuse them.

          End of the year; Xerox always tries to have as little as possible in their warehouses this time of year. I would always recommend stocking up in Oct/Nov.

            Oh man I miss disposable waste toner bottles. Canon makes us empty ours. They have bags and this funnel attachment that almost always separates and spills. I just started using a rubber band and a trash bag because it's a lot more reliable.

              We never had a problem getting them for our 1000, but as soon as we put in the V3100 they said they were backordered and to order as often as possible.

                I just ordered one 2 days ago for our V2100 and it has shipped. I usually keep a spare on hand but forgot this time around. Thankfully our old DC260 uses the exact same waste bottle so I just swapped and got the job finished. I have emptied them by hand before when in a pinch, it is messy but it does work. Not sure why you would need to cut a hole in the bottle, I just push the end in and shake it out.

                  I ordered 4 both on Nov 6th and Dec 11th and neither one has shipped. Luckily I had a lot ahead and haven't done any large runs lately so I still have a few but I am getting concerned as well.

                    When I order I usually get 6 or 8 at a time and always re-order when I am down to 4.

                      We had the same problem with our Versant toner waste bottles. We had ordered weeks ago. Finally our tech scrounged one for us but we were getting close to shutdown. We were not looking forward to emptying the existing bottle, but have done it in an emergency.

                        We almost ran out after a month on backorder. We talked to our salesman and he was able get us some overnighted from somewhere.

                          Sometimes we cant give preference to money in-front of good customers. So better using new is helpful to give quality service.

                            Just got a notice that the order from Nov. 6th has now shipped.

                              That is timely. Doesn't Xerox want to manage businesses and not just printing. I think they should figure out how to manage their inventory before trying to sell their managed red light cameras to the world.
