A big recommendation is to take it to a service center.

As a service center it takes us about 1 hour. You need to remove the upper cover assembly, the scanner assembly, control panel and wire harness. Back cover needs to come out. The cleaning tube needs to be removed. Unscrew the printer mechanism, and then take it out. Replace the pads, do everything in reverse, go to an epson service center and have them reset the counter for you.

This is how the printer pads are replaced.

I have got error 5100 what does this mean


Hello

Error code 5100 describes a physical problem either with a paper jam or an incorrectly seated ink tank. Resolving the error is a quick process that only requires a few standard troubleshooting procedures.

Press down and hold the "On/Off" button, which is located on the printer's operator panel, for one second. Wait 15 seconds and then tap the button again. Attempt to print or scan a document.

Check the paper feed tray on the front end of the Canon printer to see if there is any paper visibly stuck inside the printer. Open the printer cover by gripping the front edge of the printer and lifting upwards.

Grab the edge of the jammed paper and gently pull towards you to remove the paper from the paper feeder. Unplug the Canon's power cable and USB cable, and then turn the printer around.

Pull off the rear plastic cover tab and check if there is any visible paper jam. Grab the edge of the paper and gently pull toward you until the paper is removed.

Push the rear plastic cover tab back into place, and reconnect the power cable and USB cable. Attempt to print or scan another document to see if the error is resolved.

Lift open the printer's cover again and wait for the ink carriage to slide into view. Press the "Push" button on the front of the first ink tank. Pull the tank out and then push it back into place to ensure it is properly seated.

Repeat the process with the other three ink tanks, and then close the printer's cover. Power the printer off and then back on again.



But in some other canon printers,Error code 5100 indicates that the waste ink absorber has reached maximum capacity. The Canon i860 printer uses the waste ink absorber to keep ink residue off the printer heads and internal printer components. To resolve this error code, the waste ink absorber must be cleaned out and the error code message needs to be reset.

Open the top of the printer.

Locate the waste ink absorber pad on the right side of the inside of the printer. Grasp the pad and pull up to remove.

Take the waste ink absorber pad to a sink. Run warm water over the pad and wring it out to clean it. Wring the excess water out when done cleaning.

Clean the waste ink absorber compartment with a tissue or cloth.

Set the waste ink absorber pad on a dry paper towel or clean cloth to dry.

When the pad is dry, place it back into it's compartment in the printer.

Close the top of the printer.

Press and hold the "Resume" button on the printer. Press and hold the "Power" button while holding down "Resume."

Release the "Resume" button. Press "Resume" twice. The indicator light will turn amber followed by green.

Release the "Power" button.

Press the "Resume" button four times

Press the "Power" button. The error code is now reset.

How can I clear or replace the waste ink tank on my multipass MP390?


this is the sequence that worked, and do not worry about the pad, it is a sponge that you can take it out gently yourself, wash it and put it back, no soap or squiz it. do not need to open the printer to do it, can take it out from where you replace the ink tanks.

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 avalabe 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

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

Then press Stop/Reset Followed by the power button and then wait for it to restart.

Error message that the waste ink tank is full


Ok there dont forget to download the MP-Tools.
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

I am not sure what canon you have so I cant tell you the tools you need for yours, i have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need.
with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink coming out your printer.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Waste ink tank near full


Go about half way down this page and it shows you how to fix this problem.

It will require you to open up the printer to access the "waste tank" which is actually a thick felt pad.

Printer sending message


Waste ink tank/pads getting full.

Normally your remedy is to replace the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the "Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer, towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need to actually get a SERVICE MANUAL, to refer to that removal procedure.

You may want to try doing a general search on the "Fixyourownprinter.com" printer repair site, under WASTE INK PADS or WASTE INK COUNTER RESET PROCEDURE.

Waste tank is full, How do fix it, can I clean it myself?


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 full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.
