How to remove the ink waste remover for canon ip1000


Please follow the mention below instruction.

1 Open your printer 2 To protect hands from Ink wear thin latex (or similar) gloves 3 Locate the Waste Ink Pads on the inside of your printer. They are on the right hand side
and are quite small.

4 You can remove the pads and the holder with a gentle pull.

5 Using a tissue, soak up as much ink as possible and clean the area around the waste

ink area.

6 There is one more waste holder in the right back bottom of the printer. A kind of

sponge. There are few screws and plastic parts to be removed and this sponge needs to be

washed, dried and placed again. Be careful and patient. This is no understatement. On the

iP1500 this requires the dismantling of most of the printer. Take a photograph (even with your

cell phone) so you can trace back your steps. On the iP1500 the drive motor on the side (Just

behind the waste ink pads) has to be removed to get to the main sponge. You also need to

take care as you lift the slide/carriage. Below this you find 5 little springs.

7 Carefully replace the holder and the pads. Close printer.

8 Whilst printer is disconnected from the mains power, press and hold the power button

and reconnect to ac power.

9 Release the power button.

10 Press the power button again.

Waste ink absorber is full. what should i do? so i can use back my printer

Siijakiah, I have successfully taken apart and cleaned the waste ink absorber. My problem came when I was putting it back together. Can't find where the two springs under the ink cartridge rest go.

There are two small hard pads on the right hand side under the ink cartridge rest that are fairly easy to clean (just press gently with a tissue until no more ink comes out) as long as you don't drop them.

There are also two large pads right at the bottom of the printer that need cleaning and this requires that you take your printer apart. I can describe how to take it apart and clean them. I can also describe how to get it nearly back together.

If there is anyone else out there who is kind enough to explain/describe where the springs go, I am sure I would not be the only grateful person.

My canon ip1000 printer does't want to respond. it wrote "waste ink absorber is full". what i should do?

Well under where the Ink heads "Park" there is a "waste ink absorber" pad type thing. This needs to be "emptied". You need to look in tour manual for exact instructions.
