Hello
Replacing the waste ink absorber is a service procedure which is not documented in the user manual, it is documented in the service manual.

the part needs to be replaced and then the printer needs to be reset, this can be performed with either a button combination or with a service tool, which is only available to service personnel.

it would be best to send this printer to canon for repair.

    @Rulds, Yes you are right as well. I've actually done this myself, and found it very long procedure, I had to dissemble half of the printer to get to the pads. I just washed them, which took a few hours as well, then I had to let the pads dry which took 2-3 days.. then I put it back together and wasted another day looking for the service tool reset.




    a easier way is to just find the reset online, do that, the printer works for a month or 2 or so, until the ink pads overflow, and then just buy a new printer, or take it to a professional, it will cost, but the end result will be better than washing the pads yourself, you could buy the pads quite cheap from ebay.




    well this can be done yourself but the actual documentation is hard to find and the tool is a pain as well if the button combinations online don't work.




    or you could just buy a new printer if you don't want the headache or if you don't have the time.

You need to locate and replace the ink absorber, if you do not know where that is at you need to consult you manual witch is here:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=357&modelid=10239

The ink absorber is and should be directly under the print head where the paper is fed.

    Thank you EKSE,



    Hence if you take it to a tech to do you might as well as buy a new printer as the part and labor charges would supersead the printers networth, Even what its wroth Gross for that fact.



    Again Ekse is right as I downloaded the manual to find no where to change the absorber, But that does not mean it is qualifed for only a service personal. I am sure the absorber can be replaced by a adverage computer geek, thanks
