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.

Waste ink near full


There is a collection area in the printer that when the print head are not in use they rest over. It usually has a sponge\foam material. It collects excess ink and keeps the print heads clean. Any way, waste ink near full means it needs to be changed.

What does Waste Ink nearly full mean? Canon MP370


If you peel enough apples, and throw the "waste" apple-peel into the basket, eventually the basket gets nearly full, and must be emptied.

Similarly, if you print enough pages, some of the ink becomes "waste",
and that "waste-ink" goes into a small sponge-and-bucket apparatus.

So, take the printer to a qualified technician, and get the printer serviced.
