You can take it out and soak it in water or rubbing alcohol. Change the solution a few times, squeeze it out well between solution changes. Maybe someone knows of a good solvent for the printer ink and goo.

Waste ink absorber is full and need to be replace unable to print

The waste ink absorber is a pair of pads at the bottom of the printer paper path (one on each side). You can order replacement pads from a service center. Alternatively, you can resuse them. First, you need to pull the old pads (have plenty of paper towels handy). This can take nearly disassembling the printer. Then rinse the pads with running water until they are clean and then let them dry, if you want to reuse them. Once dry, reinsert them and reassemble the printer.

Next you need to reset the counter for the waste ink absorber. With the printer plugged in but off. Press and hold the Stop/Reset button then press the power button. Once the Power light is lit, press the Stop/Reset button twice while holding the Power button. Release the buttons in any order and the printer is in a service mode. With the lights Green, press and release the Stop/Reset button four times (the light will go orange and green alternately and will be green at this command). Set the counter to zero. Press the Power button to save the setting. Then turn on the printer normally.

Do not reset the counter until the waste ink absorber is cleaned/replaced, you will get ink everywhere.

Please note that the printer was designed to fail about the same time that the waste ink absorber counter hits the point that locks the unit. (ie the waste absorber doesn't get full while the unit is under warranty), the printer may have additional failures soon.

I hope this helps.

How do I clean the ink absorber from a Canon Pixma iP4500 printer

First off, this is a VERY messy job. It likely requires full disassembly to chassis of the printer. The waste ink pad likely spans the entire foot print of the printer and is many pads thick, at least it does on other similar models. When we clean these, at a Cartridge World store, we rinse the pads, which are special dense felt material and then centrifuge the water and ink out, which can take multiple cycles. Low end ink printers generally do have have service manual readily available to aid in disassembly so you are on your own.

It is doable but be aware of what came from where and in which order.

Here are the instruction for how to reset the counter. Warning: Resetting the counter without cleaning the pads WILL result in waste ink overflowing out of your printer and onto whatever the printer is on, eventually.

Canon PIXMA MP110 waste absorber is nearly full


Thanks for using FixYa. Open the cover, move the cartridges to the centre, and then press the pad of absorbent paper towel onto the waste ink pads. You can locate the waste ink pads to the right of the cartridges. This will absorb a lot of ink in the pads and that will remove the warning after you reset the printer waste ink tank counter. You can reset your Canon Printer by following this procedure—

1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the on/off lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times for waste ink counter reset.
5) Turn off the printer.( it must be turn off) then turn it on again.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

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.

How to Change the Waste Ink Pads in an Epson Stylus DX7450

Even if you had the manual there would be no mention as to how to replace the waste ink pads! This is a common problem to all ink-jet printers. The best way to clean it is to just get the carriage out of the way by pulling the power while it is initializing and wipe the pad with a flat head screwdriver to remove the built-up black ink. The black ink is organic material & will build up as the color inks are dyes and will not build up!
Use warm water on a paper towel to clean up any messes made.

Epson stylus 830Uink pads full not printing help

The Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. Should you decide to have a go at changing the waste ink pads, the 830 service manual can be downloaded from here:
