Question about Canon PIXMA MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Ink Absorber Full
This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

First off to do it will take you about an hour, cost you between 10 to 30 dollars. The best alternative is either take it to a Canon Dealer and pay 40.00 and don't worry if you break the seal, or I will tell you how to reset it so that it thinks it has no ink. DO NOT PLAY WITH THE OTHER SETTINGS OR YOUR PRINTER MAY NOT WORK AFTERWARDS.
This works on the F30, F60, and F80.
Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.---
By pressing Menu-Copy-#
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select  PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [OK] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
Skip step (6) since there is no [OK] key on F30 printers.

SOURCE: 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.

there no any waste ink collector, this printer have only a pad for waste ink, (you don't need to replace first time indication) only take the printer to service center to reset this indication.
for immidiate printing -
just switch off printer from main (power) swtich then push and hold the on key and paper key then switch on from power. (it's work some time in some pixma)
