1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

NOTE: There are a couple of things that might affect this. If the print head is clogged or needs replacing this will not work. Also, I've read elsewhere that it's a problem if the waste ink resevoir is full (shouldn't be the case, but who knows?), and replacing the resevoir is a 3 hour PITA that only few regular joes will find worth the time.

Canon i860 used ink cartridge full error message


When the absorber is full, you need a shop to replace the absorber pads and reset the waste ink counter. In our shop the pads are $19.95 and the labor is $69.00. Sorry about the first stupid answer to your problem.
