My Canon S300 printer is flashing green, then 8 oranges flashes (waste tank almost full). What exactly do I have to do to resolve the problem?
This procedure will print out information about the EPROM:
2 EEPROM information printing
a) While the printer is powered off, hold down the RESUME button, then press the POWER button.
b) When the POWER LED lights up, hold down the POWER button, and press the RESUME button twice.
c) Release both the POWER and RESUME buttons, and the service mode is entered.
<< Note: the printer will cycle through and then the power light will stay on steady>>
d) Press the RESUME button twice.
e) Press the POWER button.
==>EEPROM information printing pattern will be printed.
If a report is printed, then you know you have done the steps correctly. The top line of the report will look like this:
S300 P=V 1.00 Destination=000.0 D=095.5 Page=05716 CH=0000 BK=(000) C=(-01)
The number after "D=" is the waste tank counter. To reset this to zero, repeat the steps above except for step d) you will press the RESUME button four times. (Also, you may have to press the POWER button in step e) twice).
Repeat the steps to print the information and the counter number should be zero. Mine changed from the above line to this:
S300 P=V 1.00 Destination=000.0 D=000.0 Page=05717 CH=0001 BK=(000) C=(-01)
