Dear mr perfect, Few days ago I have answered the same question about this for Canon MP700. Here is my answer: Waste ink absorber capacity of your printer has rise to about 90-95 %.
Tentatively, you can continue printing by pressing STOP/RESET button.
When ink absorber capacity reach about 100%, the printer stop working
and message 'Waste Ink Tank is Full' appears. To fix this problem,
you need to reset waste ink counter. It strongly recommended that you
replace waste ink absorber after resetting waste ink counter. Here are steps resetting waste ink counter of this printer:
With the machine power off, while pressing STOP/RESET button, press and hold the ON/OFF button. (Do not release the buttons).
While holding ON/OFF button, release the STOP/RESET button. (Do not release the ON/OFF button).
While holding the ON/OFF button, press the STOP/RESET
2 times and then release all buttons. (Each time STOP/RESET is pressed,
the alarm LED and COPY lights alternately starting with alarm LED).
When the COPY button lights in green, press STOP/RESET
button 4 times. (Each time STOP/RESET is pressed, the alarm LED and
COPY lights alternately starting with alarm LED).
following error codes i found E2-2 No paper (ASF) E3-3 Paper jam E4 No ink E5-5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed , or the ink cartridges are not installed properly E8 Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
