If you drop the cover the machine will send the cartridge holder across to the far side of the printer

At that point switch the printer off and by using a torch you will see a heap of nearly solid ink which has been deposited by the cleaning blades into a trough where the ink cartridge normally sits.

Pair of surgical gloves and a small lolly stick or wooden spatula normally does the trick

When the waste ink is full you need to replace the waste ink pads in the bottom of the machine. It's a dirty job and complicated since you have to remove the entire print assembly to get at them. After changing you have to have access to the diagnostic mode to reset the waste ink counter. Around $100.00 shop repair job.

What is error P7 on Canon MP250 printer?


Please refer to this video, to fix it:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvBpioLPm3M

Inkjet printers has an "ink absorber" counter in which when it has reached a certain level that error will occur. Because when you are printing, some parts of the ink become waste ink & goes to the internal "tank" inside the printer where they are dried. The ink absorber counter tells you that the "tank" is nearly full which might flood the internal parts of the printer and damage them, causing short circuits.

However, this error could be bypassed by resetting the printer as described on the video.

Another better solution is by installing an external waste ink tank to channel the waste ink outside the printer to avoid internal damage. The P07 error will still occur, however you can bypass it.

Canon BJC- 1000 LPT 1 printer. STATUS: the used ink tank is full. printer not performing.


HI,

Your printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. As time goes by, the waste ink tank gradually fills. When the waste ink tank is nearly full, you should receive a "Waste ink warning" error when you print. Press the RESUME button on the printer to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, have the waste ink tank replaced.

Error code on my ix4000 reads 5C00


Canon has a decent trouble shooting guide for this model:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/contro...

Click on the Step-by-Step Troubleshooting link under Tech Support

Unfortunately it does not give any possible solutions for blinking lights.

The user guide on the other hand does.
You can download this under Downloads -> Product / Software Manuals

Here is a summary of what the flashing lights could mean:

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

Six flashes: No print head installed

Install a print head.

Seven flashes: Print head is defective

Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in the waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.

Important
If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact the Customer Care Center as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.


Nine flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly

Open the print head cover and press the button of the ink tank and reinstall the ink tank properly.

Ten flashes: Battery level is low

Charge the battery. For details on how to charge the battery, refer to the manual supplied with the battery.

Eleven flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from the digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer

Disconnect the camera cable, press the printer's RESUME/CANCEL button and reconnect the cable.
If the error is still unresolved, there is a possibility that you are using a digital camera or digital video camcorder that is not supported by this printer. Use digital cameras or digital video camcorders that are compatible with this printer.

POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange:

An error that requires contacting the Customer Care Center may have occurred.

Disconnect the printer cable from the printer, and then turn the printer off and unplug the printer from the power supply. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer back on after leaving it about 10 minutes.

If the problem remains, contact the Customer Care Center.

Canon muti-pass MP360 INK TANK FULL


I believe what you are seeing is "WASTE INK TANK FULL"? This means that the tank that collects the waste ink from cleaning the head is full. You can read more than you ever want to know on this subject on the following link: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/38697#1 These are the steps to clear the message by reseting the counter: 1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset 2)Select Test mode which is like the last available selection 3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some other options 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 EEPROM Clear Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set Your done!
