Question about Cannon Canon i960 Photo Printer
Things were working fine until I had to replace my larger pigment black Canon ink tank. It seems capable of printing in all the dye based inks but the full pigment black won't seem to budge. Red light keeps flashing. My impression is that removing the tape did not succeed in exposing the tank's L-shaped vent on the top.
I have carefully used a razor blade and removed a tiny bit of tape that still remained...[to no advantage] ...yet my sense is that the tank has a faulty vent that is blocked by the actual plastic of the ink tank. Yet I can see the shape of the thing there. Should I pierce the vent area carefully? If so, how large does the vent need to be? Suggestions? >8^|
If you still have the old tank load it in. an than try the new one again. or tank could be bad.

I believe what you are seeing is "WASTE INK TANK FULL"? This means that the tank that collects the waste ink from cleaning the head is full. You can read more than you ever want to know on this subject on the following link: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/38697#1 These are the steps to clear the message by reseting the counter: 1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset 2)Select Test mode which is like the last available selection 3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some other options this is where it gets a bit confusing cause now all it says is like 8-2 or 8-3 push the + or - button until it says 8-3 then hit the select button The menu will now say EEPROM Clear Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set Your done!

Depress power button while plugging the canon pixma ip1000. When you depress the power button, the printer can be used even if the in waste absorber hasn't been replaced.

insert orignal canon black ink tank it will work .return that ink tank as the chip in that ink tank is not detected by the printer so you are facing this problem.

It probably has to do with the chip embedded in your cartridges. This tells the printer what kind of ink you're using. Your cartridges could have the wrong chip.
