You have to open the printer and search for the ink tank it will be below the cartridge resting point, just remove it and wash and dry.

How do I reset waste ink tank full on Smartbase mp390?


Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button to clear the error (1700)
Waste ink absorber error 1700
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.

Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button on the printer to clear the error, so you can continue the print job. The printer will need to be serviced as soon as possible.

It means that your printer is nearing the end of it's life without you taking it to a service centre for the counters to be re-set.

Error code printer check ** 343


the error is "Waste Ink Tank Full" error
This error occurs after a set number of nozzle activations, and it's to protect you from having ink start leaking out of your printer.
The waste ink tank is actually a large cotton pad in the bottom of the machine which absorbs the waste ink, and if this pad becomes full, the ink will pool and, like water, seek the path of least resistance, which could be where the case parts connect, and then leaking out onto your desk or carpet...
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu Copy Copy Copy Scan
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [Set] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
hope it works for your model
Hope it helps.
goodluck pls dont forget to rate this
