    I get notified that my Waste Ink Absorber is almost full when I click for printing. I would like to do the cleaning myself because I am handicapped and can't take it to a Canon service center. How do I do it?

I found it under my ink cartridges in my Canon iP2000 printer. Trying to losten it for cleaning, it came out in my hand, I washed it and replaced it with a tiny amount of glue. After resetting the program, it is working again.

The waste ink tank absorber is in fact a sponge located under the place where the cartridges "park" (usually right side of the printer). It may be necessary to unscrew some parts to get near there, let me know if you found it.

Rate the answer pls.

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...

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.

Smudging


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech on this model. when the waste message comes up this means that the waste absorbers in the bottom of the machine need to be replaced. just clearing the error and not replacing them will cause the waste ink to over fill and backup into the machines printing area smugging the print. there are Canon repair centers privately owned that can replace the waste absorbers and clean the machine. the average cannot take this machine apart into peices to clean it. The waste absorbers are fairly cheap but the labor to do this will vary from shop to shop. hope this helps clarify the problem.

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.
