The waste chamber is ribbed in this and most cartridges. That means that if you drill a hole you will find it difficult to get all of the waste toner out.
You can easily dissasemble the cartridge using a drift (not a tapered one), with the drift drive in the two toner cartridge pins (you can see them at each end of the cartridge, they are stainless steel and you will see what size drift you need). Drift them into the cartridge, a reasonable amount of force is required. Once they are pushed right in you can separate the two parts of the cartridge and remove the Primary Charge Roller and the wiper blade exposing the waste hopper. Recover the pins and use them to reassemble the cartridge when you have done your work.
Don't remove the drum until you have drifted the pins. Otherwise you will have toner spillage. So separate the cartridge halves then remove the drum.
Thanks for that info but I don't need to get ALL the waste toner out, and would prefer not to disassemble the cartridge as that looks to be beyond my level of knowledge. On two other HP cartridge models I have used a drilled (melted) hole to empty the waste chamber, and it worked just fine. I got a lot of toner out. So can you tell me where to drill a hole to empty the waste chamber on the 7115?
