Question about Canon PIXMA iP6220D InkJet Photo Printer
The waste ink absorbers are a pair of pads on the sides of the carriage near the bottom of the printer. You need to open up the printer (pop the top off). It is just clipped into place and held by its own pressure (you can usually see how it's held in). Unscrew (if needed) the ink carriage (leave the cartridges in place) and push it out of your way.
Wear gloves and have plenty of newspaper or something handy. Pull the pads out and rinse them clean (running water works well). Blot dry or let them dry in the sun. Use a hair dryer to get the last bit of moisture out if you are in a hurry. Then reassemble the unit. Then reset the counter for the waste ink tank.
To reset the counter:
1 - press resume button and then press power button
2 - realese the resume button and press 2 more times then realese both
3 - press and release resume 4 times and power 2 times...
(under normal use, the waste ink absorber is supposed to register a full counter at the expected end-of-life of the printer. Additional failures may happen soon.)
