    If you really need to clean the waste pads, here is the procedure, but don't forget you still have to reset the printer to clear the error message.

    Cleaning the Waste Ink Absorber on a Canon PIXMA ip3000

    With the printer on, open the lids and wait for the ink tanks to center, as when you put new ink tanks in. Unplug printer. With a flashlight, good tweezers, and small hands (or enlist the help of someone who has them, or get loooong tweezers), reach in over the right where the ink tanks usually rest. Carefully remove the two pads which are held in only by a formed rubber foot. These two pads are porous but stiff plastic. Rinse them in water (in a bowl and carefully so that you don't lose them down the sink!) until the water stays clean. Thoroughly dry them by gently squeezing between paper towels. Swab area that they were sitting in with cotton swabs if you see any pools of loose ink. Replace pads. Reset printer's computer

    Reset ip2000 / 3000

    1. Turn off printer
    2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
    3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
    4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
    5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
    6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
    7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
    press the Power button once more.
    8. Your printer should respond as normal..

How to take apart Cannon PIXMA iP3000 to clean the waste absorber


You need to replace the ink absorber kit and to completely disassemble the printer to replace the absorber. Attempting to clean the ink absorber is not recommended. Self servicing the absorber can be a very messy operation. I would check with a Canon repair center to see what the cost to have the servicing done by a trained technician. In some cases, it is cheaper to replace the printer.
