It's mean "ink out". Not actually "inK", but ink level counter reached zero. If using original ink tank, just replace with new one. If using "hardware resetter", reset ink level counter. If using CIS ink tank, it will be auto reset.
Remember, it's program not actual ink. So, if you reset it, ink level will show full, even if you didn't refill ink tank.

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.

I bought some new ink cartrige from Canon for my MP560 but it says that my printer doesn't recognize this ink, and the error U140 appears on the screen. What should I do? I know it's the right ink...


Before trying anything else, make sure that your refill cartridge is seated firmly in the moving printhead assembly. I had one that I had to play with a while until I got it to seat properly.

If you are not using genuine Canon ink tank replacements, you will get an out of ink warning. This may not be related to your problem, but if it is, you need to buy replacements that have the little computer chip that tells the printer that it has a new ink tank if you want the printer and software to think it has a full ink tank. I use a third party ink system with a resettable chip. When the ink tank is removed it resets to tell the printer it is a new, full ink tank. The downside is that, if I remove a partial tank for some reason, it resets and the printer won't warn me in time before the tank goes dry.

The printer doesn't respond any more, and the computer, when asked any task, answers: the used ink tank is full, contact maintenance center in order to replace the used ink tank. But it would not don...


Hi. I think the problem on that one is the waste ink tank is already full, so you need to clean it or replace the pads on it, because when you are printing or opening your printer it blows little amount of ink to the heads so that it will not be clogged, and that ink goes into the used/waste ink tank. Also after cleaning the used/waste ink tank you need to reset the counter of the printer so that it would print again, you can just download the counter reset software over the internet or just bring that machine to an authorize canon printer technician. Hope this Helps

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

Waste ink tank nearly full


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).
