Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
I've cleaned the waste pads on my Canon ip6300 and I need to reset counter--I still keep getting the "waste ink absorber is nearly full" message & having to go back to the printer to hit the OK/reset button to print. I've tried a number of variations of holding down buttons and powering up, click, click, click..... nothing I have found in my searches has reset it yet. I even uninstalled/reinstalled the printer in hopes of a fresh start. Any tips for re-setting the old counter?

For Canon ip1000 and ip1600, maybe others
1. remove cartridges
2. unplug AC power
3. hold power button and plug AC power (keep holding power button.

I have the same problem, but Jet Tec waste inks. When I first replaced black (pgi 5bk)-don't forget to place the small chip from the original cartridge to replacement; it worked fine. But now, it has a lot of problems because this **** printer from canon only want original inks (and the original are tooooooooo expensive). I'll never bought anything else from canon.

SOURCE: Waste ink tank / absorber
you need to dismantle the printer by opening the scanner lid, pinging the blue arm out of the white retainer with a screw driver, flip the scanner lid right over onto the desk on the LH side of the printer - it will come off its hinges for this. lay it lid down on the LH side of the printer - be careful not to snap the power and data cable connecting with the base. Next you have to remove the 4 retainer screws in order to remove the plastic cover over the rest of the base. The pad and ink box are at the rear on the right hand side.
