The waste ink absorbers are pads that absorb waste ink during head cleaning cycles. One set of pads is below where the print cartridges rest when not in use. There is another set of pads at the bottom of the printer. If the error is "waste ink nearly full", press OK to clear the error temporarily.
Cleaning these or replacing them is a messy job and may not be worth it. If the printer is under warranty, get Canon to do it for you. If you decide to do it yourself, have plenty of newspaper (or other absorbant material) ready. Take apart the printer from the top; there are some screws you may have to remove to get at the pads. Then blot off most of the ink. Blot the excess ink from within the areas where the pads sit. Place the pads under running water until the water runs clear. Dry the pads; you can use a hair dryer to speed this step if you want. Then reassemble the printer.
Next reset the waste ink counter. Do not start this step before cleaning or replacing the pads; waste ink will get everywhere after a short time. Power off printer Hold down STOP/RESET button then Press and Hold down Power button Keep Power button down and Release STOP/RESET button Push STOP/RESET button twice let go of power button
Wait 20-30 seconds - my display shows "canon Idle" Push STOP/RESET button four times Push Power button twice Power off Next time the printer is started the waste count will have been reset.
Please note that the counter is designed to be a number of pages that will be reached when the printer is reaching its end of life. Additional failures may occur soon.
These printers have a waste tank which receives a short squirt of ink every time you use it. This is in order to keep the heads clean. Normally it is recommended that you take the printer in for service but often the cost of a service is almost the cost of a new machine.
It is possible to take the printer apart and look under the park point of the print cartridges when they are at rest. You will find a container or compartment containing either wadding or a sponge. You need to clean or replace this - warning wadding will often disintegrate so you may find it easier to try and replace it!
Once you have cleaned/replaced the material you will need to reset the internal counter - google for an appropriate tool/program for your machine.
Hi The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it or it will still not work, I not know about your printer I have only looked it up for you.

Ok hope you have good luck. There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out. I am not sure what canon you have so I cant tell you the tools you need for yours, i have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need. with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink coming out your printer.
