You need to open the printer, remove the waste tank and sponge, changing sponge and cleaning tank with water and then solvent solution. do it in your bathroom as its gonna be a dirty operation. I think in your printer the tank is located at right hand corner, watching the printer from front side

cheers

Unable to clean cartrigde


The problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset, again by a Brother agent.

However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code somewhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.

Need to empty used ink tank on canon i70


Hi rweber3

It take it you meant that you have to replace the cartridge ?

Simply open up the top cover and take out the old ink cartridge ( normally clips in and out ) and replace with the new.

If you have any further queries , feel free to post us another thread.

Thanks for using Fixya !

I think i found the actual ink spong (waste ink near full). Right side of Cannon pixma mp 780 close to center track ink thing runs back and forht on!) . Not taking it out but my logic here was if i found...


That is the ink sponge that you found. To clean it you just soak out the ink with a paper towel or washcloth like you have. You can also remove it and run it under hot water if you would like. It will just lift out of the cradle that it is in.

Good Luck

Printer is printing everything in pink


more details please:
manufacturer
model number

if it's an inkjet, run any maintenance procedures like cleaning heads, take out each cartridge, take paper towel wet with warm water and touch nozzles gently to remove any dried ink.

Canon PIXMA MP830 All in One - A600 error


Here’s what I found.
There is a sponge to the right as stated but right next to that is a white plastic arm assembly with a spring attached to it.

It was the white plastic assembly arm that was stuck and not fully retracted. I tried to move it back and forth and then (pingk) it fully retracted. I powered on the printer leaving the ink caddy to the left and as it was cycling I could see the plastic arm was covered with dried ink. I powered it off and moved the ink caddie to the left again and powered it on again. As it cycled I pulled the power plug leaving the assembly fully exposed. Grabbed some paper towel and put some alcohol on it and cleaned the dried ink off as best I could. I left the caddie to the left as I powered it up to see the assembly work

The printer is working again
