Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Canon iP5000, and I'm trying to remove the cover (to clean the waste ink absorber pad). I've found only a couple of sites that mention removing the cover, but they both just say that it's very easy to remove - all I have to do is "look at the thing and use [my] brain"! Maybe I need a new hard drive for myself, but I sure can't figure out how to get the cover off this printer. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!
You should have a user manual the tells you how to doe this it most likely in the maintainence section

The sides should push in towards the center at the joint, do one at a time. If you are having trouble still, let me know

There are two possible ways to remove the error from your printer. First is to actually clean the absorber pads that are full of waste ink. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.
Clean the two absorber pads. There are actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when the carrier is in the home position.
Accessing the pads and remove them for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezers and extra cloth for some ink spillage. Using the tweezers, lift up the pads sitting on the rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing them under running water. Use warm water to remove the ink from the pads. Dry the pads and reinstall them. Same procedure if you are installing new pads.
However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error or E-27.
