Lift the top cover and you will see the cartridges toward the center of the printer (they are long thin ink tanks with different colored labels). On the side of the cartridges facing you there are tabs that you pressin and then lift that side up. Then you can pull the cartridge out toward you. To insert the new cartridges, simply make sure the side with the tab is facing you and slide the cartridge into the corresponding slot. Then press down on the cartridge where it says "press" untill it clicks into place. A red indicator light should come on if you did this correctly.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Mp510 waste ink needs emptying

Ink Absorber Full
This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

Can't find my manual and don't know where the ink cartridges go, my printer is a Canon MP510

Your printer must be turned on.
Open the printer by lifting the whole scanner assembly. The Carraiges should move into position so that the cartridges can be inserted.

How do i change the ink cartridge in my canon mp510 printer

  1. Press the "On" button on the top panel of the printer to turn it on. Open the paper output tray at the front of the printer.
  2. Lift the entire printer cover, which should snap open. Then lift the small inner cover.
  3. Press down on the tab below each ink tank to snap out and remove the tank. Lift the print head lock lever that holds the ink tanks in place.
  4. Lift the overflow tray toward the top of the printer and slowly pull it out of the printer. Take care to avoid spilling any ink that has collected in the tray.

Good Luck!

Lcd says lid open when it is closed and I want to scan

There is a little switch that a pin or similar part on the lid activates. There is usually a small hole with the switch under. If the pin is broken or the swich has moved it wont work.
