This is not very fun..

Goto this site and search service tool
http://www.coldreset.com/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=search&query=
when the search completes, you have to download parts 1-7 (scroll down the page to see the file links) (i haven't downloaded myself, so make sure you scan files for virus before opening)

This will give you the canon service tool you need to reset the printer. After download, follow these instructions:

1. Unzip the “i320-i255.rar/i320-i255.EXE” file.
(Automatically unzipped by double-click)
2. Open the “i320-i255.rar/i320-i255.EXE” folder created after unzipping.
3. Open the “GeneralTool.exe” file.
4. Select the connected USB PORT No. from “USB PORT” (A).
< How to print the shipment inspection pattern >
Select “TEST PATTERN 1” (B), and the shipment inspection pattern 1 will be printed.
< How to set the destination >
1. Select either of “1” or “2” from “SET DESTINATION” (C), and the destination will be set.
“PIXUS 350i”: Japan
“i355/i255”: Asia
“i350/i250”: Other than the above area
2. Confirm that the model name is indicated in the (E) area when clicking “DEVICE ID” (D).
Or, confirm the model name by performing the shipment pattern printing.
< EEPROM reset >
When printing the shipment pattern after the “EEPROM CLEAR” (F) check box is marked, the EEPROM
will be reset.

a little confusing, but it should work

Full waste tank canon i250


Hi Eli,

Canon i250 & i250 waste ink tank counter reset. by BSF (12/10/04 10:13 PM) +1 + / -

1. Disconnect printer from AC power (take out AC cord or power off your power strip). Disconnect USB PC cable from
printer.
2. Press and HOLD the POWER button (untill step 7).
3. Reconnect power cord (turn on power) to the printer.
4. The indicator should be green.
5. Press and release the RESUME button , the indicator should be orange.
6. Press and release the RESUME button again, the indicator should be green.
7. NOW Release POWER buttons.
8. NOW Connect the printer to PC (USB cable).
9. NOW...I opened "Printers" and saw that a "copy" of my printer (i250 or i350) had been made. Make that COPY your default printer and all should work...It did for me.

I must say...I went into the "GUTS" of the beast and cleaned out the PADS (they are actually vacuum pads that the INK is sucked through during a HEAD cleaning) a very messy undertaking.

Sean

Changing ink reservor on Epson rx620


Are you often to used refilled cartridge? That's possible your waste tank has been fulled. Hold down the 'Stop' AND the 'B&W' button while powering up. This seems to clear the error message and restore the printer. Worked for me--dunno how long it will last tho!

Please rate me SOLVED.

Regards.

"Waste ink tank almost full"


Here is the reset process. You need to carefully follow the steps for it to work. Not to defend Canon but without the waste ink counter you will at some point end up with ink leaking from the printer.

Waste Error Reset
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

I hope this helps.

Error message "service required...parts inside


This is a very common problem and is basically your printer reaching a point where an internal counter has tripped. The primary reason for this is the printer has guesstimated that the waste pads are now full and need changing.

Resolving it is pretty simple...

You can either take it to a service centre (assuming they'll be able to service one as old as the R220) and get them to handle it for you.

OR..

Do some searching on the subject of fitting an external waste ink tank. You'll also need to reset the waste ink counter which can be handled using the A10_IPR utility that Epson released for North American customers some time back.

For more information on your specific printer along with instructions on how to fit an external waste ink tank this link should help.

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.

You May Thank Me NOW!!!!

I must say...I went into the "GUTS" of the beast and cleaned out the PADS (they are actually vacuum pads that the INK is sucked through during a HEAD cleaning) a very messy undertaking.
I'm not sure how much life this will add to your printer.

Good Luck
