There is a waste ink tank that stores excess ink from the printing process.

it is almost full and would need to be cleaned or replaced. and then the printer needs to be reset. Recommend Canon service for that problem, there are instructions for it posted online if you care to look around.

My Canon MP390 Printer has come up ''Waste Inn Tank nearly full'' What should I do


CANON printers "compute" the "fullness" of the waste-ink container, based on the number of pages printed, and the "density" of the ink on each page. So, this calculation has produced a "nearly full" prediction. Take the printer to a qualified technician.
They will empty the waste-ink container, and "reset" the electronics in the printer, back to "zero-per-cent-full".

What does Waste Ink nearly full mean? Canon MP370


If you peel enough apples, and throw the "waste" apple-peel into the basket, eventually the basket gets nearly full, and must be emptied.

Similarly, if you print enough pages, some of the ink becomes "waste",
and that "waste-ink" goes into a small sponge-and-bucket apparatus.

So, take the printer to a qualified technician, and get the printer serviced.

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.

How do you find the waste ink collector on a printer/scanner ?


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads are inside the printer, in the very bottom. They are usually soaked with ink when full and are very messy.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

What does Waste ink near full mean


When the printer cleans the print heads it draws ink and disposes it to a foam collector in the base of the printer. Frequent cleaning via software causes this to to become saturated. To my knowledge it cannot be emptied or replaced easily and it is essentially the end of the printers life when full because the excess ink has nowhere to go and cakes on the print head. You can confirm with Canon or check the manual for replacement instructions.
