Just another little way that Canon have found to get more money from you, would probably cost you at least $150 for Canon to fix, but you can, I think this should work.
Reset Waste Ink
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.
By pressing Menu, Copy, Scan, Copy, Copy
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.

I have a Canon Pixma MP750 and I am getting that the waste ink is nearly full. What should I do?


the waste ink is collected in a box because of cleaning of the cartridge take place on power on and before printing. simply you have to despose off the ink. try to take out that box by opening front cover. if you do not access that box u have to open top, back and side covers.

What does "the waste ink absorber is almost full.


IT means that the pad in the printer that absorbs excess ink is full. This costs a lot of money to replace, probably more than you paid for the printer. Just resume printing.

Waste ink near full,where is the the tank


Turn the printer off.
Lift the lid that covers the print-head mechanism.
Look where the ink-cartridges are "parked".
The waste-ink tank is "below" those cartridges.

Turn the printer on.
Lift the lid.
When the ink-cartridges "slide" to where they can be removed, disconnect the AC power from the wall-outlet (do *NOT* press the ON/OFF button).

Now, you can access the waste-ink tank.

It is getting difficult to print because a notice keeps telling us 'waste Ink Near Full'. We don't know where the waste ink is or how to empty it.


Hi,
It seems that access to the waste ink pads involves a bit of dis assembly. Some people have resorted to extending a tube from withing the printer to an external waste ink receptacle. However you still need to reset the ink counter.

Waste ink absorber?


Hi. As you have not mentioned the make and model of the printer, I am giving here the procedure to reset waste ink counter applicable to most printers. Hope it helps.
Canon Pixma iP1200, iP1600, iP2200 Resetter
  1. Download software for Canon iP1200, iP1600, 2200 Printers.DOWNLOAD Service Tool Software for Canon Pixma Printer iP1200, iP1600, iP2200
  2. Unzip downloaded file by WinZip, 7Zip, Izarc, etc
  3. Run GeneralTool.exe
  4. Select the connected USB port number from USB PORT
  5. Click LOCK RELEASE, and select the applicable model name in SET DESTINATION
  6. In CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER, select MAIN or PLATEN. The selected waste ink counter will be reset. MAIN resets the main waste ink counter, PLATEN resets the platen waste ink counter.
If both the main and platen waste ink absorbers are replaced, reset both the main and platen waste ink counters.

Waste Ink near full shows on screen. Won't print!


Hi ...

Cannon Pixma MP780 have an absorber and this error is related to this absorber.

This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible. Press the <Stop/Reset> button to cancel the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset.

I would suggest that you take your printer to the nearest cannon service centre and get it repaired.

Don't forget to vote if this helps ... Cheers :)
