I replaced my waste pad because it says it was full. I took it apart myself and change the pad. But now when I plugged it back in it comes up with that I have the wrong cartridge in it. So how can I reset this.
Hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. what it sounds like is that the ribbon cable that go from the carridge unit to the main board are plugged in to the wrong connector. check the connectors and try to match up by size. hope this helps.

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.
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.
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
#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.
You need to have the waste ink absorbers replaced, the cost of the absorbers should be around $20.00 and service is usually around 50.00. That is a very messy job, you must disassemble printer removed used/ waste ink pads in the bottom of machine reset ink counters and the reassemble printer.
1) Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan. Now you should be in service mode; from there to waste ink tank reset 2) Select Test Mode, which is the last available selection 3) Select #8 Printer Test, it will do some cleaning, then it will come up with an other option; 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 EEPRON Clear Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set
Then press Stop/Reset, Followed by the power button and then wait for it to restart.
