Message on printer "Waste Ink near full"............. Where is the waste ink tank?


Right under the resting place of the cassettes. However just emptying will not fix it you need to find the reset software for your model
It covers the whole of the bottom. Remove it carefully noting how it fitted. Make a solution of teaspoon of bleach to 1 cup water dunk in a few times to remove ink. Pat dry and finish carefully with a hair dryer on medium. Then replace and follow these instructions

Canon MP780 Waste Ink FULL Reset (Should work with MP700/730/750)
This reset should be used once waste ink counter reaches full and lock-out occurs.
- To select something... Use the '-' and '+' buttons and then the "OK" button.
- To go back... Use the "Stop/Reset" button
- To reset... Use the "On/Off" button (only after you've gone back as far as possible it seems)
  1. Service menu: Menu -> Scan -> Copy -> Scan (one at a time in sequence)
  2. Select "TEST MODE"
  3. Select "[8] ETC.."
  4. Select "[4] EEPROM CLEAR"
  5. Select "[1] INK COUNT"
  6. Press the [OK] button.
  7. Press the [Stop/Reset] button (Exits Service Mode)
  8. press the [ON/OFF] button (which resets the printer)
Reboot and enjoy

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.
Steven.
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.

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.

Canon mp780 -waste ink near full??


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,

Where is the foam pad located so I can clean it?


Your Printer needs servicing

The waste ink pads are the pads that the print head sits on on the right of the printer. You see when the cartridge returs to its neutral position on the right of the printer the pads below it are the ones you are looking for..

You need to replace the pads and reset the printer or it still wont work..

you can also take the pads out , wast then with rubbing alcohol and put the back in the reset the printer..

HERE is the service manual that will give you step by step instructions on how to do this
