Ok, just to make the above steps a little clearer, as it's pretty daunting doing stuff like this (I find it to be so, anyway!). And even though some people might get it straight away, this took me a couple of attempts to work out. Some people just ain't techno savvy!!!

1. Press MENU COPY SCAN COPY COPY

2. This will take you to TEST MODE

3. Use the + key to take you through to PRINTER TEST (option 8)(if you go past, either keep keying the +, or you can use the - to take you back)

4. Ensure that it shows 8-3 on the screen. This is EEPROM CLEAR

5. Press OK

6. It will show 0 INK COUNT

7. Press OK

8. Press the STOP/RESET button

9. Press the ON/OFF button

10. The printer won't turn off, but will "reset" itself (or something).

I'm not sure what this does, but it gets rid of the "WASTE INK NEAR FULL" message and you should be able to print again with no problem.
