There is no ink tank in these machines. The ink is simply tube fed to a stack of sponges in the bottom of the machine. There is a reset procedure to clear this message, however you do run the risk of over saturating the sponges and the ink will eventually leak out of the printer and cause an awful mess.

I perform service and maintenance on these machines locally. So, it is highly unlikely you are in the Phoenix AZ area. If you were I could actually clean and replace these parts for you. You can purchase new absorption pads through various suppliers if you are so inclined to attempt this yourself.

If you are successful at getting the covers off the machine. There are only 4 screws which hold the machine into the base. Once you remove these screws you can lift the printer out of the base and pull out, clean, remove or replace the ink absorbers.

Once this is done you can perform the reset. Or, just perform the reset and hope your printer doesn't start leaking out on your desk!

Here is the reset procedure:
Turn off the printer
Hold down Resume and Press Power at the same time
Keep holding the Power button and release the Resume button
Press Resume 2 times then let both buttons go
Green lights will flash and then stop
When green lights are solid, Press Resume 4 times
Press the power button and the printer should turn off.
If the printer doesn't turn off, Press Power one more time
The printer should respond normally

The large black ink tank is empty but the small black ink tank is full, why won't the printer print from the small ink tank?


The small black ink is only used for printing photos and must be used in addition to the large one. If the large one is empty, it will not work.

How do I empty an ink absorber that is almost full?


The answer is that you don't empty it. Ink absorber or over flow tanks are not usually emptied. They are replaced. The removal process is different for each manufacturer and/or model printer. You didn't say anything about the model and make or I could be more specific.

Contact the maker of the printer, check the price for a replacement ink absorber or over flow tank and they will give you instructions on removal and disposal of the full tank. Depending on what printer you have, it may be more practical and less expensive to purchase a new one instead.

Good luck!

I've changed the ink and still showing check ink tank


The "ink tank" can be compared to a garbage-basket -- excess ink from the ink-jets collects in that tank. When the garbage-basket, or the tank, is full, you must empty it. Changing the ink-cartridges (putting more food into the refrigerator) does not empty the ink-tank (garbage-basket).

Tank absorber full and lights blinking


The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Note
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.

My printer needs to have the waste ink reset how do I do this


You can try this....
  1. Turn off Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers
  2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
  3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
  4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
  5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
  6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
  7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
  8. Your Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers should respond as normal.
But this happens because the waste tank is full. You need to locate it and use a paper towel to absorb the waste ink. Whenever the printer cleans itself ( when a new cartridge is installed, for example) some ink is cycled into this chamber. So if you reset and it is full, overflow may occur.....

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

Only black cartridge empty, but 3 full color crtrige say empty


Remove the color cartridges. On one end you can see the opaque
ink tank inside the main cart. housing. Cut a piece of black electrical
tape to fit around the three sides visible of the ink tank. Make sure the tape fits inside the housing and adheres to the tank itself. This makes the printer think your ink is always full but you can always tell when you need to refill/replace the ink(right?). Good Luck!
