Although there are ink cartridges on the market, but not easy to buy, even if there is also sent with the original ink, but cf217a toner cartridge do not. In order to save the ink cartridges, many users began to manually store their own cartridges, the following describes one preservation method is more commonly used users.

Steps: 1, the cartridge put the box to try. Look at the gap left around how much, and then according to the gap to the foam cut into the appropriate size, until the cartridge can be found with their own box filled with empty space on the line. 2, according to the size of the bottom of the box to cut the high density sponge. Size to fit the size of the entire box as the standard or according to the size of the print head cut a high-density sponge down, the size to cover the entire print head and slightly better than well. The foam and high-density sponge after a good glue with them in the box inside, if the high-density sponge is cut according to the size of the print head, but also according to the print head in the box placed in the location of the sponge sticky The 4, in the box on the lid is also stick a piece of foam, the thickness of the cartridge to a little pressure to a little better.

My Canon MP810 is not feeding the paper properly and when it does print, it misses lines and produces a very mess print. Can you suggest ways to resolve these problems. Thank you.

Remove the cartridges, then the head itself by lifting the lever attached to the side of the cartridge holder. Sit the head part in a saucer of boiled water, making sure no water touches the contacts on the front of the head unit. Leave for 5 mins and replace in the printer.
While the head is out inspect the cartridges "bed" inside the printer. there is a sponge that the head rests on when the printer is idle, this can clog and leave clumps of ink on the head. if so simply place some tissue or toilet paper over the sponge to adsorbs as much ink as possible,
I hope this helps Regards GM

black ink leaking from the bottom of the printer

When a printer starts it cleans it's head this is done in a "sponge" tray it sound like your tray is full, deemed to be the end of the life of the printer however if you feel capable of removing the top of the casing you may be able to empty that area (squeeze the spong out) and remove and exess ink. dose the printer print propley still, as second guess would be faulty cartridge

ink absorber is full


Things you will need.
Needle nose pliers.
Paper towels
97% rubbing alcohol
Plastic gloves.
Disposable waste container, lined with plastic.
Disposable plastic tray about 6x9 or thereabouts.
Plenty of ventilation, outside if need be.

a. With the printer on, open this lid as if to change cartridges.

b. Turn Printer off. Unplug the printer. Unattach the communication cable. You will be moving it to a work area with excellent ventilation, such as outside.

c. At the far right where the the cartridges normally park themselves when not printing you will see a platform with rectangular compartments. When the cartridges park, this platform rises, seals off the nozzle area and captures any leaking ink, which till happens today.

d. Examine the platform with your flashlight and you will see what looks like sponges in the compartments. This material with holes in it, like a sponge, is plastic.Put on your gloves.

e. Place a paper towel folded over on itself underneath this platform as best you can to catch any spilling ink.

f. Use paper towels soaked in alcohol slightly and your needle nose pliers to push the paper towel into each compartment, gently at first, until the majority of ink is removed.

g. This will take quite a long time and plenty of paper towels and patience. So be patient and ready for the long haul. Avoid smoking and the fumes.

h. At some point the sponge material, itself, may become dislodged and loose. When you witness this, go ahead and remove it carefully using your needle nose pliers and place it on some paper towels placed inside your disposable plastic tray.

i When you have one or both, if needed or more sponges removed and in the tray, pour alcohol over these until the ink runs pretty thin. Leave to everything to dry.

i. Use a paper towel damp with alcohol and your pliers to clean out the compartment and its sides as best you can.

j. When you have completed these tasks allow the compartments and sponges to dry.

k. You are ready to reassemble the sponges into the compartments. Do so now.

l. Nearly done; take a towel wet with alcohol and hold it very gently against the bottom of the ink cartridge until ink flows freely onto the paper towel. If its stubborn, knock the cartridge gently but sharply against a hard surface with the alcohol soaked towel held against the nozzle area.

k. Re insert the cartridges now.

l. Return the printer to its working location, attach power, attache the comm cable and with the lid closed apply power.

m. Run your printer through its normal setup routine, deep clean the print heads, run a nozzle check and finally do a print head alignment.

m. Your Printer is now ready to be used again.

Please rate this solution as Fixed instead of Helpful, although as helpful as it is, the point it to return the printer to working order.

Thank you,
