I have a cannon pixma mp110 and it as the waste ink tank is almost full see user manual

These printers have a waste tank which receives a short squirt of ink every time you use it. This is in order to keep the heads clean. Normally it is recommended that you take the printer in for service but often the cost of a service is almost the cost of a new machine.
It is possible to take the printer apart and look under the park point of the print cartridges when they are at rest. You will find a container or compartment containing either wadding or a sponge. You need to clean or replace this - warning wadding will often disintegrate so you may find it easier to try and replace it!
Once you have cleaned/replaced the material you will need to reset the internal counter - google for an appropriate tool/program for your machine.

This printer needs a service, the waste ink tanks are full. The printer needs to be opened up, and these waste ink spounges need to either be replaced or cleaned. Use disposable gloves and water to flush out the ink. Dry out the sponges in the sun, and reinstall them.

"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?

Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.

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.

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.

Orange light is flashing 7 times, but printer ,is locked. Ink tanks do not centre when lid is opened.

Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER

0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960)
1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print
2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise
3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.

hope this helps

The paper and ink lights are blinking simultaneouly epson 1400


It's hard to provide a definitive answer to this without detailed info on the exact flashing light pattern but it's possible you're right in this instance.

If you start up the status monitor you should get more information on this to confirm or indicate any other problems.

If it is the service required issue then you need two resources.

1. the A10_IPR utility

2a. Some kind of external waste ink tank to collect waste ink
2b. To get the printer serviced at an Epson service center

Hope that helps... and if the problem is a "General error" please report back with more information re: symptoms and we'll see what we can do to help further.

My canon printer will not print - i get a waste ink reserve tank if full. where is the tank and what do i do to get my printer working again. thanks

Your waste tank is full. It is located at the bottom side of your unit. Actually, the tank is a flat sponge or foam like material about 1/4 inch thick. I have experience removing it and cleaning it by soaking it in water and soap, but I wouldn't suggest you do it cause it is hard to remove it and pretty messy to clean it. Take it to the service center.

Cleaning ink tank

You need to open the printer, remove the waste tank and sponge, changing sponge and cleaning tank with water and then solvent solution. do it in your bathroom as its gonna be a dirty operation. I think in your printer the tank is located at right hand corner, watching the printer from front side
