    Waste ink is absorbed in a sponge / foam. When performing (deep) cleaning of the ink nozles this absorber catches and holds ink. Try to avoid nozle cleaning as much as possible. Canon advises to have the absorber replaced by a technician.

SOURCE: Waste ink near full error

Canon's a little shady when it comes to this, since any waste ink pad I've seen never has been more than 30-40% full. You can reset that status without cleaning the waste ink out and the printer should return to normal.

1) On the printer, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan. This will put you in service mode.

2) Select Test mode at the bottom

3) Select #8 Printer Test, wait for more options. It should say 8-2 or 8-3; push the + or - button until it says 8-3 then hit Select. The menu will now say EEPRON Clear

4) Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set

5) Press Stop/Reset, then the power button and wait for it to restart.

I hope this helps!

SOURCE: getting a waste ink near full message. how do i

Hi there
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

I am not sure what canon you have so I cant tell you the tools you need for yours, i have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need.
with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink comming out your printer.

Canon BJC- 1000 LPT 1 printer. STATUS: the used ink tank is full. printer not performing.


HI,

Your printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. As time goes by, the waste ink tank gradually fills. When the waste ink tank is nearly full, you should receive a "Waste ink warning" error when you print. Press the RESUME button on the printer to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, have the waste ink tank replaced.

Message "wasted ink tank near full" on Canon Multipass F80


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

Where is a waste ink i have error message says WASTE INK NEAR FULL help me on that, thanks


I have had this problem. There is a counter in your printer that must be reset to move on. The ink tank may not be full, but the counter estimates it is full (and maybe it is an instruction to you to buy a new Canon printer), and to actually empty the ink tank would be an uneconomical task. How do you do it, there are a number of helpers here so Google: MP730 waste ink near full.
