Hello, I am John Cappucci, Computer Science Engineer. I will be happy to help you.

Now, just push the Resume/Cancel button in order to keep printing. Soon you will get another message "Waste Ink Tank is full" and you won't be able to print anymore. You can reset that message (when you get it) following the steps below, if you need to print something urgent:

1: Power off printer
2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3: Hold POWER and release RESUME
4: Press RESUME twice, then release all buttons
5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three or four times. The indicator should be orange.
6: Press Power to set data

You will need to call Canon directly at 1-800-OK-CANON in order to make an appointment to replace the ink pads. The procedure is very difficult and messy, and includes the disassemble of the printer, so it should be done by a technician.

Please note I do NOT work for CANON so please do NOT leave me a negative feedback if you are not satisfied with them. Thank you
