If it is the waste toner bottle, you need to swap it out with a new one or carefully empty it into a plastic bag, be sure the plastic bag is sealed around the container or you will get toner everywhere! Or it could be waste in your finisher, like the staple debris tray or the hole punch debris tray, both are easy to access and empty

SOURCE: Cannon printer MultiPass.MP390 waste ink

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: canon multipass f80 error waste ink near full

ok

This works on the F30, F60, and F80.
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu-Copy-#
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.

Skip step (6) since there is no [OK] key on F30 printers.
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.

I've replaced the toner cartridge and waste toner bottle, but the display still says 'toner low' and 'waste toner near full'. It refuses to print, even with the old cartridges.


Then you mite want to clean the sensor that monitor the waster toner box pull out the waste toner box and look for the area that show clear plastic then look for those area of the machine and blow the old toner from those areas waste toner mite have gotten on the sensor saw they can not see the clear plastic and think that the waste toner cart is still full.

I have an MFC Brother printer and I cant copy or print...it says waste toner full??? How do I fix this problem?


What model MFC Brother Printer do you have? The waste toner is left over toner from each print or copy that isn't used. It collects in a different spot in each printer. Usually the waste toner container is with the regular toner cartridge. The printer is able to detect when the waste toner is full by a light sensor in or near that container. Sometimes excess toner collects on the sensor itself and causes it to think the waste toner is full when it actually isn't. Try finding the waste toner container and empty it or replace it. clean the sensor that is on or near the container. it is likely a small black plastic piece that has 2 or 3 small wires coming from it. The model of printer will help to identify where the container is.

It means the waste toner bottle is nearly full and needs replacing soon. Here is the link to the printer support page; http://printer.konicaminolta.com/support/current_printers/mc5430dl_sup.htm#DOC Download the user manual/guide. Check page 65 of the manual (page 73 of the pdf file) for instructions on how to replace. Be aware of the safety instructions - toner is very toxic. It is not worth trying to empty the bottle rather than replace it, and most likely illegal. Hope this helps :)
