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).
  • Turn off the printer.
Your printer should work normally now.
Regards,

SOURCE: Waste ink near full error

Canon's a little shady when it comes to this, since any waste ink pad I've seen never has been more than 30-40% full. You can reset that status without cleaning the waste ink out and the printer should return to normal.

1) On the printer, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan. This will put you in service mode.

2) Select Test mode at the bottom

3) Select #8 Printer Test, wait for more options. It should say 8-2 or 8-3; push the + or - button until it says 8-3 then hit Select. The menu will now say EEPRON Clear

4) Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set

5) Press Stop/Reset, then the power button and wait for it to restart.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: My Canon Pixma MP780 is saying "waste ink absorber is near full"

Under the place where the inks park is a tray full of asorbent pads. It was the most awful thing to get to in my Pixma ip 2000. If you have a day to spare, and a work table, and some long needle nose pliers or maybe hemostats, and the usual tools, you can take the machine apart to get at it. Note which pads (and parts) go where, everything has to go back where it came from. The pads will rinse out with water, lots of it.

This works on the F30, F60, and F80.
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu-Copy-#
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 [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.

Skip step (6) since there is no [OK] key on F30 printers.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hi,

The reset procedure for the same is explained below :-

The absorber is a small sponge like pad inside the machine underneath the ink cartridge cradle. It sits underneath the cradle when the cradle is all the way to the right inside the machine. To fix this problem that pad needs to be replaced. Some machines will have a tank instead of the sponge. It is located in the same place. To fix that you would sinply need to remove it and then empty out the tank.There is no step by step guide to do this you would need to dissasemble the entire machine if it is a tank and not a sponge. If this is the first time it has ever occurred you can simply reset the error as there are normally 2 tanks. To reset it follow these steps.

1) Press the following keys in sequence: Copy-Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan.
The display will say:
SERVICE MODE
#1 SSSW

2) Press the > key (also labeled +) six times.
The display will say:
SERVICE MODE
#7 PRINTER

3) Press OK.
The display will say:
#7 PRINTER
#1 SSSW

4) Press the > key (also labeled +) four times.
The display will say:
#7 PRINTER
#5 INK ABS CAPA

5) Press OK.
The display will say:
SUCTION
XX (where XX is how full the waste ink tank is as an integer percentage)

6) Change the XX to 0 by entering 0.
The display will say:
SUCTION
0

7) Press OK.
The display will momentarily say:
SUCTION
DATA ENTRY OK
and then will quickly change to:
#7 PRINTER
#6 CDR ADJUST

8) Press the Stop/Reset button


If that doesn't resolve the problem, you need to get the printer serviced for the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Waste ink near full. How do I empty this?


the waste ink is the pads in the printer where the printer cleans the carts (ink). When they fill up they need to be replaced i would suggest taking this printer to a printer shop for replacement. The reason is because the printer has a waste counter on it and it needs to be reset before the error will go away. I would call around your area and see if they can do it and how much. If you reset the counter and continue printing the ink will adventually over flow and can cause serious damage to the printer. I would also call up canon and see what they recommend.

hope this helps :)

Where is the waste ink tank?


Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button to clear the error (1700)
Waste ink absorber error 1700
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.

Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button on the printer to clear the error, so you can continue the print job. The printer will need to be serviced as soon as possible.

What does waste ink near full mean


means that the little sponge or waste tank is full, this happens when your printer does a head clean or primes the printer heads & basicaly dumps ink.

It says waste ink near full where is this waste ink located?


The waste ink absorber for this machine is on the bottom, the whole case is covered at the bottom with absorbent pads. The pads are cheap, but you need to access diagnostics to be able to reset the error code after they are changed.

Wast ink


Your MP780 printer has decided you have too much ink from the cleaning cycles in the absorbent pad inside the printer. Go to www.fixyour ownprinter.com and put "MP780 waste ink" into the search function. Follow the leads to find out how to clean the waste ink out and more important to find the code to reset the printer to get rid of the waste ink message.

The printer is indicating "waste ink near full"


Hey,

The waste ink pads should generally be around the cartridge carrier, or below, possibly at the bottom of the printer.

have a look at this page for instructions on how to reset the counter after the waste ink pads have been cleaned or replaced.

Yep your printer is nearing service time. This involves changing the waste ink pads and resetting it.

you could reset the printer without changing the wate ink pads but you risk damaging it

What i do is take the pads out wash them and replace them.

the waste ink pads are the pads the cartridge rest on whan itsn in neutral position

THE SERVICE MANUAL FOR YOUR PRINTER *step by step instructions in repairing it) is here
