SOURCE: canon muti-pass MP360 INK TANK FULL

I believe what you are seeing is "WASTE INK TANK FULL"? This means that the tank that collects the waste ink from cleaning the head is full. You can read more than you ever want to know on this subject on the following link: These are the steps to clear the message by reseting the counter: 1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset 2)Select Test mode which is like the last available selection 3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some other options 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 EEPROM Clear Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set Your done!

SOURCE: Canon MP 560. Is there any way to set this printer

Hello my friend,
you will need to access to the printer propreties via Control Panel ==> printers ==> right click on this printer and choose proprieties and then you can setup the general settings of the printer and there you can select the default mode to use which will be black and white.
Best Regards,

SOURCE: Canon MX850. Print blank after ink changes.

That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

We can't get our wireless canon printer to print from our new HP laptop, can you give us any help on what we can do?

mp 560

I'd say avoid. I used to love Canon printers. I could not praise them enough.

I thought I'd buy Canon printers for ever. I have recently bought the MP640 which replaced the 610 that I had and was the most tremendous printer even.

The 640 cost me £180 ($265) and it is shocking. Black text comes out charcoal grey colour and any black in graphics is nowhere near black, again it's a charcoal grey that is horrible.

The 560 uses the exact same ink cartridges so you will presumable have the same problem with text as the pigment black that is used for text is not black. If the cartridge is dabbed on a sheet of kitchen paper to transfer ink it is very pale black (this photo black by the looks which is basicly just a paler versions of regual ink) and this will reflect in the text.

I wish I had never bought it as I know am going to buy an HP printer and this thing will be used only if I am desperate for a printer if mine breaks when the shops are closed!

Some reviews of the 560 are good but the 560 is also seen as an ink guzzler in others. The ink cartridges are very smaell and when I took mine out of the box I could not beleive how small. Small cartidges equaly running out quicker = more ink to be bought = more profit for Canon. My ink lasted a week and I printed only about 20 sheets.

It constantly runs cleaning cycles and primming cycles that use ink and fill up the waste ink pad which will need replacing probaly not long after the warrant is gone and it was cost as much to have it replaced as buying new printer.

Ask if you can have a demonstration of it before you are committed to it before possible wasting your money on it.

The 640 is Canon's idea of improvement that they seem to have only done for the sake of saying we have made this new model. The 560 will printer similar if not worst as the MP640 has a very high print head resolution - which pitty help if it it did not!

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.

You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Cartridge recommendations

You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.

Canon multifunction printer

I believe that he is reffering to the waste ink tank where the cartriges stop to the right when not being used. There are two small foam pads over there.
I cleaned mine by opening lid and have carriage run to the left, then I reach in with a q-tip and press down repeatly until q-tips are almost clean. You will need a flashlight to see waht you are doing.

Confirm that the ink tanks are installed properly When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head.
  1. Check that the printer is powered on and open the front cover.

  2. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Check if the ink tanks are installed properly.


    Ink tanks installed correctly


    Ink tanks installed incorrectly

  4. When installing the ink tanks, push the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

    Note: If the ink tanks are not installed properly, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be ejected.


  5. Close the front cover.
