    Okay, is this some sort of a joke that Canon is playing on me?

    I haven't had the time to slog through my manuals to dig out my printer manual.

    It's a Canon S9000 color ink jet (and I am quite fond of it)

    Anyone know how to empty a full "used" ink tank?

    No rush on this querry. :)

    I think I found my own solution.

    Here it is if anyone else needs it. Pay special attention to the bold in the quote below;

    Brother laser printers used to have a trick like that too. After calling tech support and having them tell me codes to punch in, I finally got smart and wrote them down :)

    I have apparently reset myself right out the window, which is where this printer is physically going if I can't fix the <CWLMST>.

    Oh YAY!!! I got it to work.
    I had the reset sequence down incorrectly.

    Up & running fine now.

    though I didn't clean the waste pad .... :eek: .... guess I'll do that next time. :D

    Thanks for being there, Candy. I guess all I really needed was for you to hold my hand. :)

    I'm having the same used tank full problem, but my printer is a Canon BJC-1000, so I can't relate to the fix. For instance, I don't think I have a power button (can't find one). Does anyone know a fix for the used ink tank problem on the BJC-1000?
