There should be a waste bin and it may need to be cleaned. It is like a sponge and absorbs excess ink. It can be removed and cleaned with water. Let it dry fully before putting it back in. This is a messy task so you may want to wear some rubber gloves.

Hope this helps.

How do you remove the absorber? Do I have to remove all the screws to and take the top off to gain access? With most HP inkjet printers, you can pull the whole print head out, but not with the 9800.

Canon MX870 error 6A80


Hey folks.. don't look for the " black square and black rectangle "


Here are better instructions..


1. Turn off the printer. Lift the entire hood so you can see the ink tray. Slide the ink tray over to the left side.
* if the ink tray does not slide.. you will have to turn the printer on and then lift the hood ..as the tray slides to the left ... pull the power cord out so the printer shuts off.


2. once the ink tray is on the left. follow the ink tray rails to the far right.


3. below you should see this "white plastic" tray ( that is the ink tray cleaning mechanism ) it has these black thin plastic tabs sticking up.. ( kind of like a scraper for the ink ).. slide that "white tray" away from you..


4. the white tray should snap into place .. you're done !! no more 6A80 error !!

My printer is 2600n, after printing at printed page there is a ink leaking line from up to down 2 inches wide couldnt solve the problem can you help pls


You could carefully clean this as follows:
put the printer on some newspaper to avoid further spills.
Turn on the printer, then open the lid to allow the carriage to move to the center.
Now unplug the printer, then gently move the carriage to the left and out of the way.
You should now have limited access to the spittoon area.
You can clean this area by carefully scooping out the ***** of ink with a plastic spoon. (Be careful not to drop ink sludge on your printer, desk, carpet or clothing.)
Once most of the ink has been removed then use a crumpled paper towel to soak up the ink in the bottom of the service station.
It may take several rounds of this to clean up the service station.
It is not necessary to completely clean the service station, just get the majority of the ink out.
Once this has been completed you could turn the printer up and clean the bottom area of the printer. Do not tip up the printer before the service station has been cleaned or you are likely to create a mess....

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

Sounds like you may have a leak of a dark ink into the others. Remove all the ink carts and blot the area where they sit with tissue. If there is a lot of dark ink in the area, then this may suggest there ink leaking from the black cart and getting into the wicks of the other colours.

If the problem only occurs with the CD caddy in place, try an under head cleaning session to make sure the bottom of the head is not dragging on the surfaces.

Ink cartridge leaked inside of my printer, how to best clean it & why would it?


It is very unlikely that the cartrdige actaully leaked*, more likely what you see is the service station area on the right side of most HP inkjet printers. It is normal for ink to be spit into this area to keep the nozzles healthy. If this is the case it is best to just leave it alone, the service station was designed to collect the ink. If there is a ***** of ink high enough that the top is scraped flat by the service station you could remove it carefully with a plastic spoon. To minimize ink in the service station follow a few guidelines: 1. Do not use an external power strip to turn off the power to teh printer. The printer should always be plugged into a live outlet. Using an external switch will result in the pritner losing track of the time since the last print job, with the result it will use more ink in servicing. 2. Do not run unnecessary cleaning cycles from the maintenance panel. A typical cartrdige would need one or less user initiated cleaning cycles during its life. Users that do a cleaning every day or even once a week expend ink unnecessarily in the service area.

If you have an older Deskjet 800 or 1000 series printer the following may apply.

For more details applicable to your situation please indicate which printer model you have, whether your cartridges are original or refill/reman and also wa tte nature of the leak is.

* If you are using OEM cartrdiges. If you are refilling it is possible to overfill or otherwise cause the cartrdiges to leak.

Brothers MFC 210c ink tray needed has pin hole in it ink all over bottom of tray . I need to buy one where do I buy one? Cant find a place to buy one......


So if you found out that there is a pin hole in the foil, you have opened the printer already yet: I wont explain how to open cover to get to the ink tray. Wear 1# aid handshoes!!! Loose the capillaries carefully at the ink tray.(Fingernail under the capillaries; Do NOT strech the caps!!!) Clean the tray under warm water. Let the water run into the pins where normaly the carts let the ink thru. Do that until it looks brand new. Shake tray well to get the water out. Turn around to see the bottom (foil). Use some good glue to fix the pin hole. Wait a few minutes. Do this a second time. While waiting that the glue is dry clean bottom of printer with some papertowels. After glue is dry, use some water to test if the tray is ok. If so carefully stick the capilaries onto it again. Reinsert tray. Watch the white connection cablewires! Fasten cover
