The following procedure is from the Canon i900D Maintenance Manual:
1. With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume button, press and hold the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. Wait for the LED to light green, which means you can select a function.)
2. While holding the Power button, release the Resume button. (Do not release the Power button.)
3. While holding the Power button, press the Resume 2 times. On the first press, the LED lights orange; on the second press, it turns green. Release the Power and Resume buttons.
4. The LED light should be green. Press the Resume button four times. Each time you press the Resume button, the LED lights first orange and then green.
5. The LED light should be green and the printer should now reset the waste ink counter. When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.

Canon BJC- 1000 LPT 1 printer. STATUS: the used ink tank is full. printer not performing.


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.
