    Hi

    I am new to this kind of problem. My printer stopped working I thought it was dead. I reloaded the drivers to no avail, then clean the head to no avail. So I went on the Canon USA site and found out that my printer was blinking 8 times and that is a "Waste ink nearly full error".
    I researched that online and found this link:

    http://www.neilslade.com/Papers/inkjetstuff11.html

    Where he tells you how to reset Canon S printers. I did follow his steps and the printer stopped blinking and the green light came on while the head was moving inside the printer and that was it, shortly after 8 orange blinks resumed.
    I have tried 3 times even unplugging the printer and removing the USB connection, to no avail.
    What has to be done now short of trashing it and getting a new one?
    Anybody knows how to get to that waste ink and clean it as suggested by that site again, it seems hard to do?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks a lot

    I'm not sure what other information you're looking for, that page seems to spell it out in copious detail. I suspect that's what you have to do. You're right in one respect, it does appear to be somewhat of a bother, but I suspect that's the proper way to solve the issue.

    Thanks John

    I guess I was looking for someone that has done it, or has experience doing it.

    Thanks a lot
