If you send me an e-mail, I can send you a service manual for a Canon Pixma iP1500. Manual is the same for both printers.
I can also send you the software service tool. I have both, as I have a Canon iP1500 printer (cheap ink cartridges).
My e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org

I have a Cannon PIXMA ip 1600 printer. Recently, I am getting a message that says: The waste ink absorver is almost full. Press the printer's resume button to restart printing. What is this ? How to solve this problem ?
If when the head is moved to the position for changing carts, I think on the right you may find trays under where the head is parked, normally. Sponge out with cotton buds some of the ink and run a resetter for this machine (Google resetter for Canon ip1600) hope you find it
If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
“The following may have run out of color. The function for
detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”
Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
done one time.
A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
It may show empty.
If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
check” by follow the directions below:
Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.
..it's cleaning time, a simple if messy operation. You will have to clean the print head and the waste ink pads, and whilst there might as well clean all the other gunk as well..
..so how to do this ?
..power on, open front, let carrier slide to middle front, pull power cable, pull computer cable.
..by hand slide carrier to left to below the grooves in the upper case front. Clip the grey print head retainer, it pivots to the printer back, it must go up in the grooves, then remove print head, it comes forward..
