First you need to locate the tank and empty it. You do not need to worry about changing the pad, it is a sponge that you can take it out gently yourself. You can wash the textile with hot water untill it become almost white. No need to add any detergent.
After empting the ink tank you may need to reset the counter this is the sequence that works on 390, should be same thing on 370.

1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan
Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset it is simalar to what has already been posted

2)Select Test mode which is like the last avalabe selection
3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some 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

cheers

Hi Ecarg,

This is when you run the cleaning utilities, the printer uses ink to clean out the nozzles. The printer then dumps the excess ink from cleaning onto an absorbing pad.

Eventually, the pad will become “full” and the printer will lock you out.

It is possible for people to clean these pads themselves, but officially there is no way for someone to unlock the printer even if the pads are cleaned.

You can also take your printer to a certified Canon technician.

But this was according to the Canon manual, only a Canon technician can enter in a secret code to unlock the printer.

Here is one steps which you can try doing at your own:
1) Power off printer
2) Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3) Hold POWER and release RESUME
4) Press RESUME twice
5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
6: Press Power to set data
We have seen a couple different variations on this code, but they all basically follow the same steps.

Regards,
-micro

Hi there

good thing that youre printer tells you that the waste ink is nearly full. what you need to do for that is manually clear the tank or container that holds the waste ink and change it with a new tank.
simply follow this steps :

this is the sequence that worked, and do not worry about the pad, it is a sponge that you can take it out gently yourself, wash it and put it back, no soap or squiz it. do not need to open the printer to do it, can take it out from where you replace the ink tanks.

1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan
Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset it is simalar to what has already been posted

2)Select Test mode which is like the last avalabe selection
3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some 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.

hope this helps.

fixya!

This is a small resivior in the back, usually under the area where the print cartridges stay idle at. open the cover of the printer, an look for a small void on the left side. this is where all of the excess ink is collected after each print job. just use a rag that you dont want to keep, or alot of paper towels, in order to get as much of the ink out as possible.

Cannon mp 370 waste tank nearly full How do you clear this


This is a pair of sponge that absorbs excess ink after you print a page. You can get a service kit from Canon or just pull them out and rinse clean. Unfortunately they are 12x5cm and 20x5cm felt pieces at the plastic base of the printer (probably one on each side) and very difficult to reach. If you do get them out and rinsed clean, you can reset the counter for the waste ink tank.

The procedure:
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 avalabe selection
3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some 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.

I hope this helps.

What does Waste Ink nearly full mean? Canon MP370


If you peel enough apples, and throw the "waste" apple-peel into the basket, eventually the basket gets nearly full, and must be emptied.

Similarly, if you print enough pages, some of the ink becomes "waste",
and that "waste-ink" goes into a small sponge-and-bucket apparatus.

So, take the printer to a qualified technician, and get the printer serviced.

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.

The real problem is that the waste ink tank is nearly full

Correct code procedure for resetting the Canon MP370


Reset Waste Ink
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.
By pressing the black button

with the star (in a
head ?) above it, followed by
scan, copy, scan
2) Select TEST MODE (press right

arrow button 13 times).
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST
4) It'll now say "- 8-2 +" press

the right arrow key once
to get "- 8-3 +" Hit ok.
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the ok key.
7) It should return to showing

the "8:
Printer Test - 8-3 +"
8) Press the [Stop/Reset]key -

black key with triangle and
circle on it –
(returning to the state of 3)),
and then press the [ON/OFF]
key.

Good Luck and don't blame me if it
goes wrong !!!!

Now you can print again, but it has not solved your full ink-tank, that has to be solved in future.
