On the maintanance screen is there a "Ink counter Rest" tab. It must be clicked on as soon as you put the cart back in.

I also got the following from a website out there:

1) Enter SERVICE MODE by pressing sequentially Menu Copy Scan Copy Copy or Menu Copy Copy Copy Scan (on some models)
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Press ‘+’ 8 times till ‘Select [8]’ PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.


Hope that fixes it for Ya...

Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

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

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.

I have just been bought a Canon MP600 printer. I thought I follwed al of the instructions correctly. It is installed on my Computer and I have put in the ink artridges but there is still a message on the...


Ink cartridges and print heads are 2 different things.

A print head is the part on the printer that the ink snaps into. On most canon printers this part is removable.

What I would do is take the ink out and then that piece that they snap into that moves across the page, look and see if that piece removes. (normally they have a release button or lever) If it does just take it out and put it back in as sometimes the computer chips don't make a good contact and the printer just doesn't know it's there. Make sure there isn't any little piece of plastic covering the chips. They like to ship them that way.

Try that and if it doesn't help I would pack up the printer and go exchange it seeing as you just purchased it. 90% of the time just taking the print head out and putting it back in will fix your problem for you. The other 10% of the time you just have a defective head.

Hope this helps, let me know
