Click OK on the message prompt to close the message.

Uninstall the software that came with your printer . .

From the hard drive, click Applications, then click Utilities and select the Printer Setup utility.

Click Add.

If your printer shows up in the printer list, select Printer. If the printer does not show up in the list, choose either Bonjour or Rendezvous as the connection type and then select the printer from the list.
follow the on screen prompts to setup the printer

1. hold RESUME then press & hold POWER
2. release RESUME, then press it twice, the light should go amber then green again.
3. you're now in service mode (you can release POWER now)

for waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

My Pixma iP8500 will not print. Error message:

Check the following :
1. Check whether the printer you want to print is set as the default printer, by taking the control panel, then choose Printer and right your printer icon, then select 'SET AS DEFAULT PRINTER'.
2. Reconnect the printer cable to the PC. If that doesn't solve, replace the cable with new one.
