    thanks, had got this from other threads elsewhere, but how do you get at the 'waste tank' which I understand to be an absorbent pad in the base of the machine, to clean or renew it?

    Mp 360 Waste tank near full. How do you "enter service mode?" Message on printer repeats "waste tank near full, press OK". Nothing happens except "press OK" disappears. Fred M

"Waste ink nearly full" on LCD display of MP360. Is it something to be concerned about? Manual says refer to Canon Helpline, but can you please advise. Many thanks


Nearly full means it's still OK to print, maybe 50 or so pages and when it says full it will stop and not let you print any more. The ink absorbers are around $20.00 and you need a shop to replace and reset the counter.

Error code printer check ** 343


the error is "Waste Ink Tank Full" error
This error occurs after a set number of nozzle activations, and it's to protect you from having ink start leaking out of your printer.
The waste ink tank is actually a large cotton pad in the bottom of the machine which absorbs the waste ink, and if this pad becomes full, the ink will pool and, like water, seek the path of least resistance, which could be where the case parts connect, and then leaking out onto your desk or carpet...
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu Copy Copy Copy Scan
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [Set] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
hope it works for your model
Hope it helps.
goodluck pls dont forget to rate this
