100% agreed with rrrdddrrrddd. In addition:
Go to Menu->System->INK CU Replace. You will get a warning that overflow may occur(and it's really a messy job), reset the counter and everything should be OK.

You do want to replace it. Cleaning it is a very messy job.

1. Turn your machine around
2. Facing the back of the machine, the Ink Collector Unit is located behind on the lower left side.
3. Remove lid with the [!] symbol and pull out container.

SOURCE: how do you find the waste ink collector on a printer/scanner ?

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads are inside the printer, in the very bottom. They are usually soaked with ink when full and are very messy.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

Getting a false error message that the ink/toner is empty and wastebin is full when i print to my phaser 8860 from a macbook on 10.6 (networked printer)


The waste bin full error can occur if the waste bin was not removed from the machine for over 10 seconds when it was emptied. Please remove the waste bin and wait for a full 10 to 20 seconds before replacing the Waste bin.

If the message still displays turn off the machine and leave it off for 1 minute then turn the machine back on.

Then run software update to make sure you have the latest OS updates.

Then delete the printer and re-add the printer.

Empty the waste ink


Take the printer to a qualified technician.
He/she can "empty" or "replace" the waste ink collector
*AND* "reset" the printer's internal software, to say that it has been serviced.

After you replace the ink collector there is a counter you have to reset it to tell the printer that you are inserting a new collector

The waste ink collector/tank is nearly full


The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.

What does Waste ink near full mean


When the printer cleans the print heads it draws ink and disposes it to a foam collector in the base of the printer. Frequent cleaning via software causes this to to become saturated. To my knowledge it cannot be emptied or replaced easily and it is essentially the end of the printers life when full because the excess ink has nowhere to go and cakes on the print head. You can confirm with Canon or check the manual for replacement instructions.
