It is a set of pads under the printer, covering the bottom of the machine. Not too expensive, but a major pain for disassembly, and you need canon diagnostics to reset the error.

Waste ink near full. How do I empty this?


the waste ink is the pads in the printer where the printer cleans the carts (ink). When they fill up they need to be replaced i would suggest taking this printer to a printer shop for replacement. The reason is because the printer has a waste counter on it and it needs to be reset before the error will go away. I would call around your area and see if they can do it and how much. If you reset the counter and continue printing the ink will adventually over flow and can cause serious damage to the printer. I would also call up canon and see what they recommend.
Steven.
hope this helps :)

Where is the waste ink tank?


Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button to clear the error (1700)
Waste ink absorber error 1700
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.

Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button on the printer to clear the error, so you can continue the print job. The printer will need to be serviced as soon as possible.

What does waste ink near full mean


means that the little sponge or waste tank is full, this happens when your printer does a head clean or primes the printer heads & basicaly dumps ink.

The waste ink absorber is nearly full on a Cannon Pixma MP110 printer - how can I change this without resetting the printer software?


The software won't help, you need a shop to replace the absorber pads and reset the counter thru service mode.

Wast ink


Your MP780 printer has decided you have too much ink from the cleaning cycles in the absorbent pad inside the printer. Go to www.fixyour ownprinter.com and put "MP780 waste ink" into the search function. Follow the leads to find out how to clean the waste ink out and more important to find the code to reset the printer to get rid of the waste ink message.

The printer is indicating "waste ink near full"


Hey,

The waste ink pads should generally be around the cartridge carrier, or below, possibly at the bottom of the printer.

have a look at this page for instructions on how to reset the counter after the waste ink pads have been cleaned or replaced.

Canon Pixma MP780 - Waste Ink Near Full


You might have great diffculty as the waste ink needs to be replaced. First off you would need to get a new one, plus it is not just a matter of replacement, as a whole lot of other things need resetting, including the EEPROM. I have the service manual and it looks complicated in that!

Yep your printer is nearing service time. This involves changing the waste ink pads and resetting it.

you could reset the printer without changing the wate ink pads but you risk damaging it

What i do is take the pads out wash them and replace them.

the waste ink pads are the pads the cartridge rest on whan itsn in neutral position

Where is the foam pad located so I can clean it?


Your Printer needs servicing

The waste ink pads are the pads that the print head sits on on the right of the printer. You see when the cartridge returs to its neutral position on the right of the printer the pads below it are the ones you are looking for..

You need to replace the pads and reset the printer or it still wont work..

you can also take the pads out , wast then with rubbing alcohol and put the back in the reset the printer..

HERE is the service manual that will give you step by step instructions on how to do this
