Have been advised that canon released a bad batch of ink tanks, have bought new one and put it in and problem has stopped.

I get an error message on Canon i960 printer that tells me the waste ink tank full. How can I empty this myself?


Read it all here.
Scroll about half the page, to:
WASTE TANK ALMOST FULL or FULL ERROR MESSAGE PROBLEMThere is explained how to get rid of the error message very easy, and how to clean the waste ink pad manually. The latter seems not to be necessary, though.

Waste tank near full


Hi
The waste ink take is actually just a felt pad that sits under the printer mechanism inside the case and absorbs the ink from your cleanings

Try this:
1 Power off printer
2 Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.)
3 Hold POWER and Release RESUME.
4 Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons.
5 When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently).
6 Press power to set data.
7 Print away!

Let me know if that didnt solve your problem

Where is the waste ink tank -how do i clean or empty it


Since you didn't even specify the printer I am going to be real generic here. The waste ink tank is below the parking position of the print heads. unless you are really lucky and have a printer that should have died years ago you will never hav to empty it out or clean it. The are designed to hold the equivalent of several complete ink cartridges and are also allowed to dry out leaving only a residue.
I hope this answers your question.

Canon i80


Hi,
take out all of the cartridges, and carefully inspect the mating ( chip surfaces ) for dirt-dust-debris.
This could be a sensor related issue, look carefully at the printer itself to see if theres any switches or relays, that the actual cartridge mates up with when installed.
sometimes, the cartridge just needs taking out, and simply reinserting, push firmly into it,s slot.
if non of this works, turn off the printer, and check the cabling for suspected damage wear, or connecting. i.e bent pins et,c.

Cannon Pixma 1600


Recheck that the ink is correctly inserted & protective tap has been removed. ( may sound lame but it is the most common problem). It would not be uncommon for the new cartridge right out of the box is also defective. Return & replace.

Since I changed ink in my pixma mp 600, paper gets stuck in both feeders. I can not get it to print.


Go here. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=116&modelid=13800#SupportDetailAct
Click on the Service & Support tab. Type in the search window: Paper does not feed through printer. Click search. Typed in Red you'll see, "Paper does not feed through printer". Click this link & follow the instructions.

Paper jam


I had a paper jam issue on mine and it was due to the fact that I had the door open on the back of the unit.

Stranger things have happened i guess :)
