1. Turn of printer (holding on/off button for about 1 second) and wait approximately 10 seconds. Turn printer back on. If on/off button does not turn printer on/off, then unplug the printer.

2. If the above doesn't work, your printer may need to be fixed.

I HAVE A PIXMA MP170 AND THE MESSAGE WASTE INK NEAR FULL, BUT THE MAQCHINE ALSO SHOWS THE CODE 5800 & WILL NOT PRINT PLEASE ADVISE... MANY THANKS


Hi:
The problem here is the waste ink pads are full, these pads are located at the lock posistion to the far right where the units cartridge holder goes when you power down the unit and on start up. The way to solve this to to have the pads replaced, they are used to collect the waste ink the printer uses to clean itself when starting up, These pads usually take a long time to fill up, so either you do alot of printing or you hve used Non Canon inks or generic refill cartridges in the past, these are not good for your printer as some of these types of inks are either to thin or to thick and fill the pads up prematurely..Keep in mind to always use recommended guine ink cartridges you may save a little now with ink refill cartridges but in the long run your printer will eventually give out.

I am getting an on screen message


The waste ink absorber covers the whole bottom of the machine, under the printer. It is difficult to change, and you have to get into the diagnostic mode to reset the error. A shop repair...

The waste ink collector/tank is nearly full


The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.

How do you find the waste ink collector on a printer/scanner ?


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads are inside the printer, in the very bottom. They are usually soaked with ink when full and are very messy.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

Waste ink absorber is full, won't let me print


I haven't a solution but I cannot find an answer for this problem despite wading through loads of stuff about resetting the counter, which does not solve the problem. Has anyone got a real answer to it please? For Canon- why is this not mentioned anywhere? - the problem- waste ink absorber full. I will soon start taking it apart to find it.
