    Hi, thanks, I dohave the re setting detials, but it does not re set it.
    I go through it but it does not re set.
    I fitted a new print head not more than 6 months ago but with the age of the printer is it worth sending it for repair or re setting, I have lots of new ink tanks for it!
    Mick.

Hi ****
I can't remember the actual details (they vary from printer to printer) but if you google "reset waste ink Canon" you should find the correct button sequence for your printer.
I've had to do if for 2 of mine and they are both different.

Printer says"waste ink near full"


The waste ink is a set of sponges inside the ink jet that absorb ink during the printhead cleaning.
For now you can keep printing by pressing and holding the printer's On/Off button for one second. Then wait 10 seconds and press the On/Off button again. Wait until the printer finishes cycling before trying to print again. See Canon's support page for details: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/multipass_series/multipass_mp700#ServiceAndSupport . Search for Waste Ink Full.

When the waste ink tank is full, then you will not be able to print until the unit is serviced. Canon will service this for you. (Free except for shipping if the printer is under warranty, standard $$ otherwise) However under normal use, the waste ink full counter should be reached its limit near the expected end of life of the printer. Additional failures may occur soon.

This is a messy job and may be a lot more work than you want to do. Have plenty of newspaper to absorb the ink if you try this. You need to disassemble the printer to reach them. One set is under the area where the printhead sits when the printer is idle. The other is further down in the center. You will need to remove a few small screws to access the bottom set. Once you get them out, blot off most of the ink and then run under water until the ink is completely out of the pads. Blot the areas where the pads sit of the excess ink as well. Then dry the pads (you can use a blow dryer to speed this step). Then reassemble the printer. (Alternatively, order replacement pads from Canon)
See http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/inkjet/45693 for additional comments from others who have tried this.

Next you can reset the counter. (Do not do this reset before cleaning or replacing the ink pads; waste ink will smear everywhere.)

Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing [Menu] then [Copy] then [#]
2) Select TEST MODE. (using + or - keys)
3) Press the [OK] key.
3) Press the [8] key. (TEST MODE)
4) Press the [3] key.
5) Press the [0] key. (INK COUNT).
6) Press the [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key
9) Press the [ON/OFF]

I hope this helps.

IP 6700 d waste absorber nearly full. How do I resolve?


Hi. I think the problem on that one is the waste ink tank is already full, so you need to clean it or replace the pads on it, because when you are printing or opening your printer it blows little amount of ink to the heads so that it will not be clogged, and that ink goes into the used/waste ink tank. Also after cleaning the used/waste ink tank you need to reset the counter of the printer so that it would print again, you can just download the counter reset software2_bing.gif over the internet or just bring that machine to an authorize canon printer technician. Hope this Helps

The waste ink tank is full. Where is it located?


This is something that needs to be done by a service department..... however it may not be full. Cannon has a 3 year clock on these so you may be able to clear the error code and continue printing.

Waste Error Reset
1: Power off printer
2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3: Hold POWER and release RESUME
4: Press RESUME twice
5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
6: Press Power to set data

My Canon I550 quit printing.


An error has occurred in the printer. The number of flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take the appropriate action.
bullet.gif Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
bullet.gif Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
bullet.gif Four flashes: Empty ink tank
If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. However, when printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it will be a cause of trouble.
See Replacing an Ink Tank
bullet.gif Six flashes: No print head installed
Install a print head.
bullet.gif Seven flashes: Defective print head
Contact a Canon service representative.
bullet.gif Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.
i_note_us.gif Note
Canon recommends to call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.
bullet.gif POWER lamp flashes alternate green and orange:
An error that requires contacting a Canon service representative may have occurred.
Turn the printer off and unplug the printer from the power supply. Plug the printer back in and turn the printer back on.
If the problem remains, contact a Canon service representative.
