Question about Canon PIXMA iP2000 InkJet Printer
How do I get one to replace the one that is full how do I replace it?
You dont replace it, you wash it and reinstall it in the printer. Use hot water for washing it.
resetting the waste-ink full code:
1 - press resume button and then press power button
2 - realese the resume button and press 2 more times then realese both
3 - press and release resume 4 times and power 2 times...
The way it works is to PRESS the ON/OFF button plus the RESUME button at the same time, keep your fingers on both bottons all the time THEN let go of the resume button and press it 2 times and only then let go of the OFF/ON button (which you have been helding down while pressing the resume button 2 times). Then INDIVIDUALLY, first press and release the resume button 4 times and the power button 2 times after this. Works like a charm !

SO I listened to the advice of mediatecar and it totally worked. The only thing I did differently is, I didn't wash out the ink absorber, I just did steps 123 and it started working again. And mine was not printing at all becasue it said my ink waste absorber was full! THX mediatecar for saving me money!

SOURCE: Waste ink absorber
hi i am a certiffied Canon repair tech for this model. this is true this will reset the error but doing so without replacing the waste asorber pad in the bottom of the machine will cause your machine to backup waste ink into the the printing area of the machine and will start smuging ink on the page. the waste absorber is fairly cheap but the labor varies from shop to shop. there are independent Canon repair shops throughout the world. you can call 1-800-ok- canon or look on the canon website. hope this help to clairify.

Well, at some point you will need to either replace or wash the absorber pads in the printer - but you can reset the warning as follows:
1) Turn the printer off
2) Press and hold the <resume>button
3) Press and hold the <power> button
4) While holding down <power> release <resume>
5) With the power button still held down, press <resume> twice more
6) Release the power button
7) Press and release the <resume> button 4 times
8) Press and release the <power> button twice
At this point, the printer should come back online with the waste ink warning reset
Personally, I would only do this once before actually changing the ink absorber pad...

Hi there Ok.
Canon PIXMA IP2000
You may RESET the printer code first if you like or do it after you clean the pad
In some cases you may need to REMOVE THE PRINT HEAD FIRST or the reset code will not work. This was true of the S900 and i960 so, remove the print head first before doing this reset.
This is the correct code for the S and I (like i960) series of printers. (M series below this)
1) Power off printer
2) Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.)
3) Hold POWER and Release RESUME.
4) Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons.
5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently).
6) Press power to set data.
7) Print away!
For other codes for other printers and more info go here to this big forum (but try the above first) Fix Your Own Printer Generally many of Canon's models use exactly this same code, the i models use the same code, all the s models use the same code.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
All The Best: Pineworks
