Displaying error message: waste ink well almost full. What does this mean, & how do I fix it?
Unfortunately you will need to take this type of printer into a Canon certified repair center. You have a total of 8 pads inside the printer located on the bottom of the printer and the only way to replace them and reset the waste ink counter is to take it in.
This is where you will want to debate the cost of repairing it or just buying a new printer. Depending on where you take it and how much they charge you for it will vary quite a bit. The company I work for does these but we charge roughly $89 an hour plus parts which alot of places dont keep in stock. So your looking at around a week for the absorber kit to be mailed out.
If your still able to print and its not saying that the ink absorber is full you can contact the nearest Canon repair center and have them pre order the absorber pads and when they come in you can just bring your printer in and they can change them out. It should not take them more then an hour to do this.
Here is the part numbers for each pad:
QC1-4264-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4224-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4223-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4263-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4257-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4222-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4864-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4221-000 ABSORBER, INK
Best of luck!
