Question about Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

8 orange blinking lights. I think it's the Waste Tank and if so,


I need a diagram to take the printer apart so that I can clean the pad. I figured out how to turn the blinking lights off already. Anyone know where I can get a diagram (Picture) without having to pay for a manual or pay a lot to bring it to a technician. Thanks, Laura Powell

    Hi Geemarie,
    Thanks for getting back to me so fast.  I will try and find the manual from your recommendations.  I am not even sure if this is the actual problem.  I guess I should have mentioned the exact message that the printer says which is: 
     error #5200. "A problem has occurred with the printer mechanism."  I just assumed it was the Waste Ink tank because that is what the manual says for the lights blinking eight times.

    i9900 Printer stopped printing. Orange light blinks 8 times. Thought it was the printhead, so I purchased a new printhead from Canon. Replaced it and the problem still exists. Help! Has anyone ever verified that it is the waste tank that causes this?

Here are a links to order a service manual:

I could not find an online diagram. Perhaps you could try emailing the person on the second link and see if he has the actual repair manual and an assembly diagram. And what he charges? If anything.

The first link shows up quite often in search results, so it isprobably used alot. That is about all I can tell you and can make no recommendation on these sites.


Good luck to you. You are braver than me.Thank you for using FixYa

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.

I'm getting a message that my overflow ink tank is full. How do I fix this?


You can reset the waste ink counter:

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.


However, you also need to blot the ink out of the waste ink absorber. The "tank" is a pair (usually) of plastic squares with a small piece of absorbant pad in the square on the sides of the carriage. For best results you need to partially disassemble the printer. Some find just drying the pads on a bunch of towels until it stops transferring ink is sufficient. (Also dry excess ink from around the plastic.) Otherwise, rinse the pads until the water runs clear. Then let the pads dry (blotting helps) completely. Without the cleaning step, you can get ink smearing on the back of the page as well as inside the printer.

I hope this helps.

Getting Waste Ink Asborber is Full message, What do Ineed to do to fix it?


The waste ink absorbers are usually small pads at the bottom of the printer. You need to pull them. This is usually messy and can require basically taking apart the printer. Then either replace (contact a service center) or rinse clean the pads (just running water works). Once the pads are dry (if reusing them), reinstall them.

Then reset the counter:
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.

Do not do the reset until the ink absorber is cleaned. The waste ink will get everywhere in the printer and the pages you print.

I hope this helps.

(most ink jets are really designed to be replaced if the waste ink absorber is full - the other parts may soon fail too.)

Tank absorber full and lights blinking


The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Note
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.

EPSON STYLUS C43SX PRINTER


You need to reset the waste tank or the counter to resolve the problem.

If your C42 blinks both lights and displays a message to the effect that parts inside your printer have reached the end of their servicable life, then you probably need to clean the waste ink pads. These pads collect waste ink whenever the printer cleans it's heads. The printer counts how much ink it thinks is in the waste ink pads and refuses to print when they are full.

To verify whether this is the case, download the "SSC Service Utility" from http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml.

Waste tank full


Inkjet pads are between the printer chassis and the bottom of the printer case. Typically a large felt pad.
My Canon i9100 has eight orange flashes and indicates on screen "waste ink tank is full". After opening up mine I found this to be false, only one third soiled. This then leads me to believe the i9100 has a timer to go off after a preset number of hours.

Anyone know how to reset the "full waste ink tank" error?

Canon bjc 240/orange light stays on


The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.
