My Canon MP390 Printer has come up ''Waste Inn Tank nearly full'' What should I do


CANON printers "compute" the "fullness" of the waste-ink container, based on the number of pages printed, and the "density" of the ink on each page. So, this calculation has produced a "nearly full" prediction. Take the printer to a qualified technician.
They will empty the waste-ink container, and "reset" the electronics in the printer, back to "zero-per-cent-full".

How do I reset waste ink tank full on Smartbase mp390?


Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button to clear the error (1700)

The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.

Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button on the printer to clear the error, so you can continue the print job. The printer will need to be serviced as soon as possible.

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.

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.
