Canon pixma MP470 error "ink absorption full"


Hi
I have found a couple of web pages that may be useful to you, as they explain how to change or clean the absorber pads. The first is here:
How to Clean Canon Ink Absorber
and the second here:
How to replace the ink absorber on canon printer eHow UK
I have always found printers very fiddly to muck around with so I am not sure that I would try this. Good luck.

Error message; Unable to clean 46. I have been told it needs a new absorption pad. But my question is how do I change it.


You have to take off the top covers and take out he old and install the new, after that you need to enter service mode and reset the counter so the error will go away.

Conon waste ink absorber full how do you replace


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 tank full" error.

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.

If you lift the lid to change the cartridge first. Disconnect the top cover "stand" and then undo all the screws holding the plastic cover. Once you've lifted the cover you should be able to access the absorption pads quite easily.
