Remove cover iP5000

Hi -
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!!!!!!!!!!!

My Canon MP210 printer [ USB001 ] said the Ink absorber is Full contact the service center. Guess what, the service center just gave information. I need to know if will be able to fix or will...


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.

My printer says that the ink absorber is full and the unit will not print, how do I clean or repair?


THERE IS A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM ...

I used some of the "Cartridge Flush" solution ... I squeezed some onto the waste ink absorber pads (Black & Colour), using my ink refill needle, and then I used soem paper towels to soak it up from the ink absorber pads.

NO MORE MESSAGES!

... hope it works for you as it worked for me!

I have got error 5100 what does this mean


Hello

Error code 5100 describes a physical problem either with a paper jam or an incorrectly seated ink tank. Resolving the error is a quick process that only requires a few standard troubleshooting procedures.

Press down and hold the "On/Off" button, which is located on the printer's operator panel, for one second. Wait 15 seconds and then tap the button again. Attempt to print or scan a document.

Check the paper feed tray on the front end of the Canon printer to see if there is any paper visibly stuck inside the printer. Open the printer cover by gripping the front edge of the printer and lifting upwards.

Grab the edge of the jammed paper and gently pull towards you to remove the paper from the paper feeder. Unplug the Canon's power cable and USB cable, and then turn the printer around.

Pull off the rear plastic cover tab and check if there is any visible paper jam. Grab the edge of the paper and gently pull toward you until the paper is removed.

Push the rear plastic cover tab back into place, and reconnect the power cable and USB cable. Attempt to print or scan another document to see if the error is resolved.

Lift open the printer's cover again and wait for the ink carriage to slide into view. Press the "Push" button on the front of the first ink tank. Pull the tank out and then push it back into place to ensure it is properly seated.

Repeat the process with the other three ink tanks, and then close the printer's cover. Power the printer off and then back on again.



But in some other canon printers,Error code 5100 indicates that the waste ink absorber has reached maximum capacity. The Canon i860 printer uses the waste ink absorber to keep ink residue off the printer heads and internal printer components. To resolve this error code, the waste ink absorber must be cleaned out and the error code message needs to be reset.

Open the top of the printer.

Locate the waste ink absorber pad on the right side of the inside of the printer. Grasp the pad and pull up to remove.

Take the waste ink absorber pad to a sink. Run warm water over the pad and wring it out to clean it. Wring the excess water out when done cleaning.

Clean the waste ink absorber compartment with a tissue or cloth.

Set the waste ink absorber pad on a dry paper towel or clean cloth to dry.

When the pad is dry, place it back into it's compartment in the printer.

Close the top of the printer.

Press and hold the "Resume" button on the printer. Press and hold the "Power" button while holding down "Resume."

Release the "Resume" button. Press "Resume" twice. The indicator light will turn amber followed by green.

Release the "Power" button.

Press the "Resume" button four times

Press the "Power" button. The error code is now reset.

Won't print. I get a message that waste ink absorber is full. What do I do?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Open the cover, move the cartridges to the centre, and then press the pad of absorbent paper towel onto the waste ink pads. You can locate the waste ink pads to the right of the cartridges. This will absorb a lot of ink in the pads and that will remove the warning after you reset the printer waste ink tank counter. To reset your Printer please tell me the model number of your Unit so that I can provide you with model specific information.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.



Thanks

Empty the overflo ink tank on a canon ip5000 printer


The waste ink absorbers on a Canon are pads that are under the print engine and cover the whole bottom. It is a major dissasembly where the covers come off, cables and plugs un plugged, power supply removed, and then you need a shop to reset the counters.

Where can I buy the waste ink absorber pads for both printers?


Hi
The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it after you cleaned it or it will still not work, you may not have to get inside to clean it try this first to reset it.
Reset CANON PIXMA IP5000 printer To reset the counter or to find out about it’s reading you have to use the service mode.
Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
