The ink absorber is full,The waste ink error is based upon time instead of actual volume in the tank. You can reset the counter by the instructions below.

(2) Press and hold the STOP/RESET button, then press and hold the POWER button.
(3) Release the STOP/RESET button, Next press and release the STOP/RESET 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 STOP/RESET button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp
will alternate (change) color with each key press.

I would like to unlock my printer from the service required mode


Assuming you are referring to an R300 then you can use the keys on the printer itself to reset the waste ink counter and get out of the "service required" mode.

1. Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

2. Turn your printer off and then back on - job done.

IMPORTANT
When resetting the counters you should really replace the waste ink pad or fit some form of external waste ink tank, like a Printer Potty, as the pads will eventually oversaturate and start leaking waste ink out of the printer or backing up ink into the printhead causing clogging.

Clear e 5 on mp160


1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.

The above will get you to Service Mode (and clear the Waste Ink Counter if you wish) and is supposed to work for MP160 also.
Caution if your waste ink pad is full you could overflow if ignored.


Some of the new carts reportedly have fuses which blow if the ink gets too low, denying any further refilling.

To use refills, you will probably have to turn off your Status Monitor.
Go to your printer's Maintenance section.

The R300 can be reset using a key press combination:

1. Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

2. Turn your printer off and then back on - job done.

That's the short term fix for the waste ink counter but obviously your printer still has a fair bit of waste ink building up so I'd definitely recommend fitting some form of external waste tank or getting the printer serviced so you don't risk flooding the printer in the long run.

Hope that helps.

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..
