You cannot do this yourself but you can google the problem and you should find a reset code that disables this warning, mine has been running for 12 months with this disabled

First off to do it will take you about an hour, cost you between 10 to 30 dollars. The best alternative is either take it to a Canon Dealer and pay 40.00 and don't worry if you break the seal, or I will tell you how to reset it so that it thinks it has no ink. DO NOT PLAY WITH THE OTHER SETTINGS OR YOUR PRINTER MAY NOT WORK AFTERWARDS.

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.

SOURCE: The waste ink tank is full. Where is it located?

There's no 3 year clock and those instructions won't reset the counter. The absorber pads are under the print engine and if you did manage to reset the counter with proper instructions, the waste ink will probably overflow and ruin something.

How do I do a waste ink bypass to recycle ink from waste tank to avoid it getting full again?


There is a small tube running from the pump to the waste ink pads. If you connect another tube to that, you would be able to run it out to an external bottle. Please note this won't stop the waste ink counter from doing it's thing.

Service error 5C00. Cancel printing and turn the printer off and then back on. If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail.


Waste Ink Counter Reset.
(1) Turn off the printer.

(2) Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button.

(3) Release the RESUME button, Next press and release the RESUME button two(2) more times in succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will “reset" or move momentarily.

If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the "Service Mode".

(4) Press the RESUME button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate (change) color with each key press. Next press the POWER button to "set" the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Press the POWER button again to restart the printer.




The problem with resetting the waste ink counter is that the waste tank could at some point over-flow. If you manage to get inside to empty the wadding and waste ink tank, make sure you wear rubber gloves as the ink will get everywhere..
And make sure you replace with some fresh wadding if you can..

How do you gain access to the "used ink tank" on the Canon i560?


Well Fay after much research, the best answers I've seen actually came from other experts on this website. The link below will take you to another Fixya page with several, very good solutions to the same problem you have. My personal favorite was soaking up waste ink from the pad with kleenex or some other absorbent material as you won't need to take apart your machine. You merely remove the ink cartridges and carriage to gain access to the pad/sponge that Canon calls it's waste tank. I do wish you well and hope you come back to let me know if you were able to fix your machine.

The waste ink tank is full. Where is it located?


This is something that needs to be done by a service department..... however it may not be full. Cannon has a 3 year clock on these so you may be able to clear the error code and continue printing.

Waste Error Reset
1: Power off printer
2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3: Hold POWER and release RESUME
4: Press RESUME twice
5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
6: Press Power to set data

My error message says the used ink tank is full. How do I empty it?


You can't empty it, it's a set of pads covering the whole bottom of your printer. They only cost around $10.00 but you need a shop to replace and reset the waste ink counter.

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

Cleaning ink tank


You need to open the printer, remove the waste tank and sponge, changing sponge and cleaning tank with water and then solvent solution. do it in your bathroom as its gonna be a dirty operation. I think in your printer the tank is located at right hand corner, watching the printer from front side

cheers
