Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the AC poewr.
Lift the lid covering the print-head mechanism.
Look where the ink-cartridges are "docked".
Below that point is the container that holds absorbent material that retains the waste ink.

Take your printer to a qualified technician, for replacement, and to "reset" the printer (to tell it that the new absorber is 0% full).

How can I change the foam pad that absorbes ink? What part is that called?


Hello

Its better to just remove them clean them up and replace it in the printer, because usually some printers require a reset code to re-set the waste ink counter. If the counter is not re-set there will come a time when then printer will refuse to print.

Here is how to clean your waste ink absorber;

Open the printer and locate the waste ink absorber near the ink cartridge.

Remove the absorber pad and hold it in cold water while squeezing the ink out. It would be wise to wear gloves while doing this, because the ink in the pad will leave stains.

Use paper towels to dry the waste ink absorber pad. Let it dry completely before installing it back in the printer.

Reinstall the ink pad into the printer and run a test page to make sure it works.

Printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center


This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.
