That happens sometime especially if you followed generic instructions to reset the ink counter. In cannon it tends to still give warnings and acts up until a new serial number has been registered from the cartridge. Following the same steps should make your printer respond- those codes were intended for manufactures for the most- The printer companies don't want you restating the ink counter or waste counter as for when theres a need for that it usually means a user is attempting to defeat the system that keeps track of replacing the ink and ink levels. Just play with it a lil to get it out of that mode- it may be compatible with the method you used and also you will still have a low or no ink warning even after this is done.

there are two ways you can remove the error message from your printer..

the first is to reset the printer and the second is to replace the waste ink absorber. If the reset thing did not work for your then you'll be spending money to replace the absorber.

I850 canon printer blinks yellow 7 times wont print ,did the waste reset still no good is this a print head failure


You don't want to do a waste reset, ink will overflow everywhere.. but waste ink full is what the 7 blinks means. Resetting the waste ink is like adjusting your gas gauge and not putting gas in, not a good idea...

All lights flashing on the epson stylus photo 870. Printer not working.


Unfortunately, the Russian software does not work on a Mac, and it crashes at launch when installed in WZ98 under Virtual PC. However, I found this on another site, and it worked immediately:

The sequence to reset the waste ink counter is as follows:

WASTE INK ROM RESET ONLY 870, 1270

1. Turn the printer off using the power button on the panel of the printer.
2. Disconnect the interface cable at the back of the printer.
3. Hold down the "LOAD/EJECT" and "CLEANING" buttons simultaneously.
4. Turn the printer on. Release all buttons as soon as paper out light flashes.
5. Quickly press (within 3 seconds while PAPER OUT light is flashing) the "CLEANING" button for 10 seconds.
6. Release the button and the printer will initialize.
7. Once initialization is complete, turn the printer off.
8. Reconnect the interface cable.
9. Turn the printer on

Works great, no muss...no fuss!

My canon mp 150 has a warning ink refill cartridge


After so many prints the printer gives you this warning because it is possible that the waste ink pads (that collect any spilt ink in the bottom of the printer) are full. You have two options. You can either reset the waste ink counter and the printer will run but might get some ink leakage if it has had a lot of use or replace the pad and reset the counter.

A waste ink kit for this printer is Canon part number QY5-0149-000. A quick search on the will get you the part for about £5. Too fit it you will need to take the printer apart but that is easy with a service manual from here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4589462-canon-pixma-mp150-printer-service-manual The manual will also tell you how to reset the waste counter.

Hope that helps.
