You can see it and partially clean it without striping the printer down, but after taking the printer top off you can give the whole area a good clean.
The tank is the little plastic tray to the right of the carridge, its about 1cm x 2 and a half and has an absorbant pad inside it held in by delicate rubber wings, the pad can be taken out and a metal plates sits below which can also be removed revealing a small tube throught which ink passes.
You can strip all of this out and clean or just give a quick wipe out with cotton buds without dismanteling too much.
I would recomend that if you have the time and patience then at least do the following;
Take the absorbant pad out and keep patting it on kitchen roll etc until no more in comes off, then gently clean around the rest of the tank with cotton buds, this should be enough cleaning to keep everything happy!
The worst you can do is be a touch to rough and knock the small spring out of place that sits under the tank (you will feel this spring as you prod at the tank) the spring is a pain to get back in place!


Try this to reset the error.

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

What does "the waste ink absorber is almost full.


IT means that the pad in the printer that absorbs excess ink is full. This costs a lot of money to replace, probably more than you paid for the printer. Just resume printing.

Canon ip90 waste ink absorber warning


Not all the ink that leaves the ink-cartridge gets jetted onto the paper; some of it is "wasted", and goes into the "absorber".

So, the software inside the Canon printer has mathematically predicted, given the number of pages you have printed, and the number of times that you've turned the printer off, that, statistically-speaking, the "waste ink absorber" is almost full.

Take the printer to a qualified printer technician, for replacement of the absorber, and to "reset" the electronics to "zero pages printed".

Canon pixma ip90v waste ink absorber is almost full . please help me to resolve this problem


It's not a problem, just a fact of life. The old ink has to go somewhere and when the drain pack is full you need a shop to replace and access the service mode to reset the counter. It involves removing all the top covers, lifting out the print engine and replacing the drainpack.
