    I have read the previous queries and how to re-set my ip2000, but would like info on cleaning the absorber. I am getting the 'waste ink tank full' message and am a lttle confused as to which the ink absorber is. On the inside of the machine there is a long black narrow tank with a thin felt pad which the ink cartridges travel across. The tank is fixed with a single screw at the left end but removal of this does not allow the tank to be lifted out. The long thin felt strip can be eased out of the tank but it does not appear to be that saturated, and I expected more than this thin felt strip. Any help please

    My printer has been saying for over a month now that the ink absorber is nearly full. It is now full and won't work. I have taken the printer and opened it up fully. I don't know what the ink absorber looks like but i think it sits at the base of the rollers. I can't get into it to wash it. Does the casing come off easy as i am finding it very difficult to remove so that i can get into the absorber and remove it for cleaning. Does anyone have a diagram to show how to remove casing and take out absorber?

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 !

    Thanks for this advice. It actually works. Just make sure that the printer is in the OFF position before following steps 1, 2, 3. Thanks again.

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.

SOURCE: Ink waste absorber is full. Canon IP2000. How do I repair it?

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...

SOURCE: How can fix if waste ink absorber is full for

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.

Waste ink absorber is. full. How do I empty it?


The waste ink absorber can sometimes be removed and cleaned out and put back into place. Although it is not always easy to get at. Usually once this happens it is time for a new printer. You can also contact Canon and see if they have a replacement part for this.

The waste absorber is full


Call Canon at 732-521-7230 and they will sell you a new ink absorber pad. You will need the reset code for your model printer. Find this by searching for canon used ink tank. One of the results should match your machine. You can also take out the pad(It can be messy so wear gloves), wash with water hose, let it dry completely, and reinstall it in the printer.
