Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The Canon website states that the "ink absorber" needs replacement. The printer will not function when the absorber is "full" They discourage self-servicing the absorber, as "replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure," and lists authorized service locations based on zip or address. One authorized shop quoted $59 labor plus parts to replace. Almost better to buy a new printer.

SOURCE: waste ink tank full
normally, the logical solution is to replace your waste ink tank, but I have tried a solution which could make your canon printer function again.
Try this: With your printer turned ON, press and hold the I/O switch then pull off the power cord. This will turn off your printer. But without lifting your finger on the I/O switch put back your power cord. the I/O switch will blink for a second and will go off, then turn-on your printer again and see if it works.

SOURCE: My Canon i860 is not
If everything is clean and working fine then you need to first replace the ink tank and then check.
Also check if its happenning with eery application or some specific applicaion like MS WORD or MS POWERPOINT.

The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

When the absorber is full, you need a shop to replace the absorber pads and reset the waste ink counter. In our shop the pads are $19.95 and the labor is $69.00. Sorry about the first stupid answer to your problem.
