    This is the correct code procedure for resetting the Canon MP370

    (and hopefully other similar designated models



    *

    1) Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan. Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset it is simalar to what has already been posted
    *

    2) Select Test mode which is like the last available selection
    *

    3) Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some other option this is where it gets a bit confusing cause now all it says is like 8-2 or 8-3 push the + or - button until it says 8-3 then hit the select button
    *

    4) The menu will now say EEPRON Clear. Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set
    *

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

HI,

Your printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. As time goes by, the waste ink tank gradually fills. When the waste ink tank is nearly full, you should receive a "Waste ink warning" error when you print. Press the RESUME button on the printer to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, have the waste ink tank replaced.
