This is not an easy job to perform but you have little choice unless you want to buy a new printer.
Glued to the top of the waste tank is a piece of foam. It is exactly the same type used to filter the air in a portable air conditioner.
US cost about $2.00. You need t replace this or ink will end up spilling into the printer. Place a rag around the tank to catch overflow. You can use a paper towel or rag to slowly push it into the tank & absorb the ink. Please go slow, the ink is thicker than fresh ink & it will not come out easily. If you can get a syringe & use it to pull ink out you'll save a ton of time. Than you can use a rag to wipe out the rest of the ink. Use alcohol to wipe the top inside of tank.
Than cut a piece of foam & super clue one side to the tank. Keep it flush with the top of the tank. (All done).

"Waste Ink Near Full" Error on LCD Display Screen

On Canon Support, the fixes are one of two things:

1. Turn of printer (holding on/off button for about 1 second) and wait approximately 10 seconds. Turn printer back on. If on/off button does not turn printer on/off, then unplug the printer.

2. If the above doesn't work, your printer may need to be fixed.

SOURCE: The waste ink collector/tank is nearly full

The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.

HI,

Your printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. As time goes by, the waste ink tank gradually fills. When the waste ink tank is nearly full, you should receive a "Waste ink warning" error when you print. Press the RESUME button on the printer to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, have the waste ink tank replaced.

Where is a waste ink i have error message says WASTE INK NEAR FULL help me on that, thanks


I have had this problem. There is a counter in your printer that must be reset to move on. The ink tank may not be full, but the counter estimates it is full (and maybe it is an instruction to you to buy a new Canon printer), and to actually empty the ink tank would be an uneconomical task. How do you do it, there are a number of helpers here so Google: MP730 waste ink near full.
