Question about Canon PIXMA iP1500 InkJet Photo Printer
Continual Flashing - Green/Yellow control Buttons & message above
No information on Service Center.
No diagrams/information on where or how to change waste ink absorber.
- Disconnect printer from AC power
- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and
connect printer to AC power
This simple power off procedure worked on my IP1500!
Cleaning the absorber was also easy. Power up with the cover open until the head moves to the left side then disconnect the power cord so the head is now positioned away from the pads.
The two pads can be lifted up easily with a pair of sharp tweezers then rinsed in running water. They will become white again and can be blotted with paper napkins then air dried in a warm location (I used an industrial oven set to 40°C). The wells in the rubber holder can be cleaned with cotton swabs before returning the two pads (left side first, then press down the right side).
