This is a Canon PIXMA MP 780!!! Waste Ink Full Problem

Waste ink full message coming on and I have to hit OK to print. I was told that this will turn to a waste ink full and my printer will stop working. I found the waste ink wells. Not much in them but I cleaned as best possible. Left side sponge had a pastic cover which I could not get back on. Need to figure out how to remove the lid on this printer so I can have better access. Biggest problem is that I do not know how to reset the timer/counter and no one wants to tell me. Shop will charge me $60 to reset and Canon sure ain't going to give it up.

    How do you get to the waste ink wells?

    I got the top lid of the MP780 off--just follow all the screws and the entire top comes off, though attached wires in the back right corner complicate setting the top to the side.

    I managed to clean the pads simply by pulling them out of their containers, but since my printer's in pieces, I'd like to do everything possible and clean the wells.

WASTE INK NEAR FULL mp 780


It means you need the ink absorbers changed, around $20.00, and a shop to reset the counters. It will stop printing when it says the absorber is full.

Printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center


This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.

My canon mp 150 has a warning ink refill cartridge


After so many prints the printer gives you this warning because it is possible that the waste ink pads (that collect any spilt ink in the bottom of the printer) are full. You have two options. You can either reset the waste ink counter and the printer will run but might get some ink leakage if it has had a lot of use or replace the pad and reset the counter.

A waste ink kit for this printer is Canon part number QY5-0149-000. A quick search on the will get you the part for about £5. Too fit it you will need to take the printer apart but that is easy with a service manual from here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4589462-canon-pixma-mp150-printer-service-manual The manual will also tell you how to reset the waste counter.

Hope that helps.

The waste ink disposal is almost full and it won't print


The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press [OK] to continue but early replacement recommended. <See manual>
WASTE INK NEAR FULL The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning, for example. This error message indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon1.gif service representative. (You will need to replace a particular part of the printer.) Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be performed until the Waste ink tank is replaced.
