1) Underneath the print head are 2 foam pads. Turn your printer on with the cover open and then unplug it with the print head away from the pads.

2) The 2 pads have 2 silicone tubes attached to them that run to the rear right side of the printer.
Taking the sides off you can unsnap plastic clips to remove the top half of the printer cover.

3) Follow the silicone tubes. They run into a white plastic pump that sucks the ink that falls onto the pickup screens and dumps it onto numerous felt absorber strips under the pump mechanism.

4) To clean or change the absorber felts you must first remove the Pump mechanism which is held on by 2 screws so that you have access to the felt absorber pieces

5) Run clean water over each piece of felt until the water runs clear and then place them on an absorbant surface (paper towels maybe) to dry.

6) Put it all back together the same way you took it apart.

This can be extremely messy, be careful not to get the ink on anything that matters.

My Cannon IP 1600 waste ink absorber is full. can you help me?


If when the head is moved to the position for changing carts, I think on the right you may find trays under where the head is parked, normally. Sponge out with cotton buds some of the ink and run a resetter for this machine (Google resetter for Canon ip1600) hope you find it

I keep getting an error message on my Cannon Pixma ip 1500 printer that says:'The waste ink absorber is full". Contact the service Center. Can you tell me what I need to do to get this problem...


You need to take the printer apart and replace the ink absorbers. There are 2 of them. Then you also use a ip1500 service tool(software) to reset the counters. You really need a tech to do this.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My cannon printer pixma ip1800 cannot detect ink pls help me...


If after you install the cartridge you get a yellow light and error message:
“The following may have run out of color. The function for
detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the
ink level cannot be correctly detected. If you want to
continue printing with out this function, press the printer’s
start button. Canon recommends using new genuine Canon
cartridges in order to obtain optimum quality.”


Do not click “cancel printing”. Press printer start button
to start printing. This action will bypass the ink level
detection from the recycled cartridge. It will not damage the
printer! With a recycled cartridge this action needs to be
done one time.
A full recycled cartridge ink level may not display correctly.
It may show empty.
If you want to check the ink level, you can do a “Nozzle
check” by follow the directions below:
Go to menu File select print click on “Property” click
on “Maintenance”
Click on “Nozzle check” to print out the color check.
Click on “Cartridge Alignment” to align the cartridge.

See pictures for above process at Inktelligent ip 1800 topic

Also the refills refered to above are at the IP 1800 inkfilling page
