SOURCE: MP760 - how to disassemble? (waste ink absorber almost full)

You really don't have to disassemble it. What would be helpful tho is some sort of long needle-nose forceps. Tho I bet you could get by with a pointy chop-stick in a pinch. There are two waste-ink absorbers on the right, and one spongy thing on the left. With the 'hood' open, allowing you access to the cartridges, you should be able to see the pads. Get a Petzl light on your forehead, you'll need a lot of light! The sponge on the left is covered by a small clear plastic trough that channels the ink into the sponge below. With enough poking and prodding you should be able to get all these out, rinse with water, dry with a hair dryer, blot out the pad areas with a kleenex, and pop them back in. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Where can I buy the waste ink absorber pads for both printers?

Hi
The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it after you cleaned it or it will still not work, you may not have to get inside to clean it try this first to reset it.
Reset CANON PIXMA IP5000 printer To reset the counter or to find out about it’s reading you have to use the service mode.
Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like

Brother MCF-J4710DW says ink absorber almost full and won't print? Never heard of ink absorber. Where can I purchase replacement and how do I do it


Many ink-jet printers have a pad in the case to absorb the ink from cleaning cycles. Often these show "full" long before they are actually full, and you can reset the counter and continue using them. I found your answer here:

Ink absorber full


This video shows you how to reset the counter so your printer will work again. However, it doesn't solve the problem of your absorber being full of waste ink. I recommend placing the printer on a towel in the event that the absorber overflows. This will avoid ruining the table your printer is sitting on.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1NzJwuCpVOc

Here is the parts list if you wish to order the pad. It will take most of an afternoon and be very messy. Not for the novice. Your best bet is to reset the printer and use it until ink physically leaks out of the machine - then replace it.

If you do fix it yourself. You will need the following:

I have no experience with this vendor. It's just the first one that came up in Google that wasn't in the UK.

Ink absorber is full and must be changed. Waste ink absorber is to be changed


You might want to try just resetting your printer rather than changing the ink pad. The warning is based on a count of how much printing is done, not a measure of full the ink pad has become. Consequences of not changing the ink pad, if truly filled to capacity, could be ink leaking from the bottom of the printer.

The following video show how to perform a reset that should work for your printer. The second video will give you an appreciation for how to change an ink pad and help you to decise whether you wish to attempt.

Trust this is helpful.

Ink absorber pad is full


You need to replace the waste ink absorber and then reset the counter. These can be obtained from some suppliers of ink and spares etc, otherwise you will need to contact Brother in your country or take the unit to a service engineer.

Generally when these errors occur the waste ink absorber needs replacing, if not your images will start to degrade in quality and you will start to see ink splays / splodges appearing as well as random spots and ink patches. In the mean time press RESUME /CANCEL to continue printing.

What is a The waste ink absorberves


The waste ink absorbers on a Canon are a set of pads underneath the entire printer engine, they cover just about the whole bottom of the machine, on a Brother it's a replaceable box filled with absorber pads. Both have to be replaced by a shop to reset the counters and clear the error.
