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.
Power off the printer. Unplug the
printer's USB cable for 5 seconds replug turn on the printer.
If that fails power off the PC and printer unplug the USB cable at
the PC and printer replug and power back on the PC. After PC is
fully booted turn the printer back on. If this keeps
reoccurring please replace the USB cable and or try different USB
Press and Hold the 'Setup' button while you press the 'Options' button. This will bypass the error and allow you to print.
You may want to tape a note on the printer with these instructions as this is a frequent problem on the one I have :)
may be "waste pad full" error
