I openen canonpixma ipw000 rinter to empty the waste ink absorbers. In the process I removed the white plastics below the waste ink absorber and their springs. I am not able to replace the units; that is why I need a layout of the fixtures around the ink absorber's space.

We have this problem all the time as I re manufacture cartridges, the printer gets clogged with ink sludge underneath the cradle. You should not remove the white plastic underneath the sponge, every time we have done this it breaks the printer and we have to purchase a new one.

Waste absorber is full. Where is the waste ink absorber and how do I empty it?

SOURCE: indicates waste ink absorber is almost full on cannon i9900 print

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads cannot be emptied, only replaced.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

Ink Absorber Replacement Options This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

Testimonial: "The cost to let this repair: 100-150 Euro for a five years old printer. I like the device but that's too expensive."

Waste ink absorber is. full. How do I empty it?


The waste ink absorber can sometimes be removed and cleaned out and put back into place. Although it is not always easy to get at. Usually once this happens it is time for a new printer. You can also contact Canon and see if they have a replacement part for this.

Waste full


The waste ink absorber is a piece of sponge that (as its name implies) absorbs waste ink. On many Canon printers it an be removed if you are fairly dextrous. Wash it out and dry it and then refit. It may well be a fiddle but it will go back in.
The difficult bit is resetting the printer so that it knows the absorber is empty.
Do a google on resetting the waste ink warning for your particular printer (it's not the same for every Canon). It's done with various combinations of button pressing and light sequences and generally works first time (though one of mine took 4 or 5 goes before it actually reset).

Waste ink absorber


You'll always find the wast ink absorber under the printer head after printer head prints and rest, there is a rubber type clip which cleans the head and the ink drips down on the cushion absorber. Disassemble the printer and remove the cushion than dip in the bucket of water until ink dissolves out of the cushion and wash under running tap until clean then dry and finish, put back the item and assemble the printer.

How do I find the waste ink absorber


The waste ink absorber is usually in the right side of the printer where the cartridges reside when the computer is off. To find the waste ink absorber you need to lift the cover of the printer remove the screws or some printer unlock the clip to remove the cover. After you remove the cover in the right side of the printer. The waste ink absorber is in the bottom of the printer head. Some printer you need first to remove the head before you can remove the waste ink absorber. The waste ink absorber is like a foam that we using in the dish washing you can wash and dry also. But before you can remove the waste ink absorber try first to solve the problem by using some guide how to reset the waste ink absorber problem. If you encounter this search in the internet about how to reset the waste ink absorber.
