Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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 squeeze 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.
Or just open the front lid and it will get in the service mode and locate it for your model and after cean it with just water.. let it dry proper and replace ...and reset the printer ..use the reset normally use for yo printer ..or power off..get out the power cable ..press the button for power on ..and hold ,insert cable ..and after it opens press the reset 2ce and release the power..

Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber for the ink used during Print Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible
