This may have to do with the method of replacement. Leave the printer on, remove the waste tank, clean the area (sensors may detect residual ink) replace the empty waste tank. If this doesn't work, there may be a chipset on the waste tank to indicate end of life. This is a way for the manufacturer to continue making a truckload of money from the end user. Generally the only way around this is to modify your printer to by-pass this part of the circuit (an electronic solution to replace the chipset). This method will most likely void your warrantee.

Canon BJC- 1000 LPT 1 printer. STATUS: the used ink tank is full. printer not performing.


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.

Have error code 990 on ricoh gx 3000 printer how do i clear this?


you can try pulling out and reseating the Waste Ink tank which is located behind the machine behind a plastic door cover (left side of machine as you are looking at it from behind). Turn the machine off and on using the main power switch. If the code comes back then you will more than likely need a new Waste Ink Tank.

Waste ink tank full on a Ricoh Africio MP C1500 sp


The book doesn't really tell you where it is in the machine but if you open the door in front of the copier, look for a white plastic bottle with toner in. Remove the toner bottle from the machine and dispose of the toner bottle and replace it with a new one or dispose of the waste toner. Clean the bottle and replace it back into the machine.

ERR (990) or ERR (999) are both error messages which are displayed when a sensor does not work normally due to dirtiness. For example, either may be caused by a dirty maintenance unit or clogged ink nozzles. It may be possible to resolve the issue by cleaning the device
