3 choices are available. Take it in for service(expensive), try to clean waste ink pad yourself(messy) or try this reset yourself. It works on many different models and may be your answer.

I have been running my printer for approximately 2 years since resetting mine without a problem.



Waste ink full reset


These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Waste ink near full message??


The replacement of the waste tank requires the disassembly of the printer and the replacement of the tank with a replacement kit. Typically the kit will cost around $25 and the labor at a service dealer about $75. Get a couple of quotes before taking the printer in. Your other option is to go to a newer printer since you can find one for about the same price as repairing your current one.

Message "wasted ink tank near full" on Canon Multipass F80


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

Waste ink near full


Well there WILL BE a reservoir on the machine that holds all the "waste" ink that did not make it to the paper. The message is refering to that reservoir. usually loacted in the inside of the machine downhill (as gravity goes) from the point of collection.

Canon Pixma Printer tells me the Inkabsorber is near Full What can I do ???


I would like to share this simple trick with you. It works for canon printers, epson. When the message "waste ink absorber is full" is displayed, the feed button blinks repeatedly. Press and hold the button for a minute then while still holding, detach the power cord from the printer or manually put off the printer, if the message is "waste ink absorber near full", press the feed button and it will resume printing. If the problem will still persist, bring your canon printer to the canon dealer and have your printer settings reset. 'hope this helped.
