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 !!

I have put the black cartridge into the machine HP56, along with a colour one, 22. But the message comes up that I have a cartridge error. Can you explain please. Thanks


You may have a gob of ink at the bottom of the ink cartridge. remove each cartridge

and check it, to see if the ink is clumping up. also check the slot where the cartridges

are inserted, if the slot has gobs of ink, you will have to turn power to your printer off.

get some alcohol preferably denatured, you can purchase it at your local pharmacy,

with q-tips swab the area where the cartridges are inserted and make sure the area

is clean. if the bottom of the cartridges have to much ink, get a paper towel, wet it

with the denatured alcohol, then proceed to press each cartridge until the bottom is

clean. do not rub across the bottom of the cartridge as it is very delecate. once it is clean set the cartridge aside and let dry for 10 minutes. once every

thing is dry re-insert your cartridges, turn on your printer and run a clean

and alignment check, this should return your printer back to normal

and remove the error. I have an hp 6310, and I use this proceedure to cure the

problem. good luck!

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

Xerox 2424 Print head not parked


A copule of things cause that.
Here are the main 2.
On the left frams looking from the front, with the covers off, there is a 1 inch square stainless steel print head block that is located about 2/3s of the way back , near the bottom of the frame. Look at that and see if there is ink built up in that block , also under and around the block. If so remove the spring holder thats over the block and take channel lock pliers and remove that block. It may be very stiff. To clean soak it in hot water to soften the ink and clean that block, the shaft and all the remaining ink under the block you can remove. Once you return the machine to working order, take a level and out in on the glass. Make sure it is LEVEL front to back and side to side.
Number 2 is the print heasd wiper is stuck to the print head. That requires removing the scanner/document feed assembly, the side covers, the upper rear cover and the ink loader assembly,( where you put the ink sticks). Once you remove that you have access to the print hear drum area. If needed carefully pry the wiper from the print head and return to service. That blade will stick if the machine is not properly shut down.
I strongly suspect the machine is not level and when you ran the cleaning mode, it sucks all the ink out of the print head. Most likley while that ink was dropping into the tray, it ran out the back of the tray.

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
