Question about Canon Pixma iP4500 InkJet Printer
This is not an easy job to perform but you have little choice unless you want to buy a new printer.
Glued to the top of the waste tank is a piece of foam. It is exactly the same type used to filter the air in a portable air conditioner.
US cost about $2.00. You need t replace this or ink will end up spilling into the printer. Place a rag around the tank to catch overflow. You can use a paper towel or rag to slowly push it into the tank & absorb the ink. Please go slow, the ink is thicker than fresh ink & it will not come out easily. If you can get a syringe & use it to pull ink out you'll save a ton of time. Than you can use a rag to wipe out the rest of the ink. Use alcohol to wipe the top inside of tank.
Than cut a piece of foam & super clue one side to the tank. Keep it flush with the top of the tank. (All done).

2. If the above doesn't work, your printer may need to be fixed.

The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.
