The waste ink tank error message is indicated by 6 ALTERNATE flashes of Green/Orange. ie green, orange, green, orange, green, orange, green, orange, green, orange, green, orange.
The error message described in the original post is a printhead problem. It was described as flashing 6 orange and one green. ie green, orange, orange, orange, orange, orange, orange The BC-33e printheads are consumables and need to be replaced after a few years.
The waste ink amount is based on dot counting. It will indicate that it is full after a certain amount of printing has been done. This is generally after 10's of thousands of pages have been through the printer and as such is only rarely triggered by your average user. I would say that most people that supposedly have this "waste ink tank full" error, just need to replace the printhead, and have been resetting the eeprom needlessly. This would explain why a lot of people still have no joy even after reseting the eeprom.
It is shame that one persons inaccurate and inflammatory post has steered so many people in the wrong direction. And you wonder why the engineers don't want that info in the public domain.
