Message "Waste Ink Near Full"

Cannot get magenta to print. After several deep cleanings I now get the message "Waste Ink Near Full." I just put in a new cartridge put out by Staples compatible with Canon BCI-6M. I had a cannon cartridge in my printer but it didn't print either. I need help fixing this problem.

Message "wasted ink tank near full" on Canon Multipass F80


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.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

Waste ink absorber is full


Hi!
The printer counts every single droplet ejected by the print head due to waste ink absorber capacity. When the waste ink counter rise to about 90 % the printer shows message 'Waste Ink Absorber Near Full'; in this stage we can still continue printing by pressing Resume button until waste ink absorber capacity reach 100% and 'Waste Ink Absorber is Full' appears.
To fix this problem you have to reset waste ink counter to 0%. Even though we can just reset waste ink counter without resetting waste ink counter, it strongly recommended that you replace waste ink absorber to prevent ink flooding inside the printer.
To reset waste ink counter, perform the following steps:
  • Plug in power cable
  • While pressing Resume button press and hold Power button (do nor release the buttons)
  • Release Resume button (still hold Power button)
  • Press Resume button twice in a row (still hold Power button), after that release both Resume and Power button (then the printer standing bye)
  • Press Resume button 4 times then turn off the printer
In this stage your printer has operated as usual.
Regards,

Printer Not Responding, 7 orange flashes


Don't replace the print head soooo fast...

Take the print head out first and clean the gold contacts...
I used a very fine sandpaper like emery cloth...

You might get 4 yellow blinks after that.
That is because the printhead was turned upside down to clean and the ink looked low and/or out.

Just wait a few minutes after cleaning and reset...
Mine worked fine after that.... smile....

Smudging


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech on this model. when the waste message comes up this means that the waste absorbers in the bottom of the machine need to be replaced. just clearing the error and not replacing them will cause the waste ink to over fill and backup into the machines printing area smugging the print. there are Canon repair centers privately owned that can replace the waste absorbers and clean the machine. the average cannot take this machine apart into peices to clean it. The waste absorbers are fairly cheap but the labor to do this will vary from shop to shop. hope this helps clarify the problem.
