The print heads inside your Canon printer can become clogged and dirty over time, both from dried ink and dust particles. Each Canon printer includes a self-cleaning utility that automatically brushes off excess ink. While the feature keeps your printer running smoothly, it also fills up the foam ink absorber inside the printer. When the absorber is full, your printer displays an error message and won't print. To fix the issue, you need to clean out the absorber and reset the printer's ink absorber code.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:
Grab the plastic lid at the middle of the Canon printer and lift upward so the printer's internal compartment is visible. Wait five seconds for the ink carriage to slide over from the right side of the printer.
Locate the square rubber frame at the far right end of the printer that houses the ink absorber. Grip the frame and pull it slightly toward you until it detaches from the printer. Pull the frame to the left and lift it out of the printer. Unplug the printer's power cable.
Pull the two foam ink absorber segments out of the rubber frame. Place all three pieces in a bowl filled with warm water and soap. Gently scrub each piece to release the absorbed ink.
Dry off the two foam ink absorber segments and the rubber frame. Set them on a paper towel and wait for each component to completely dry. Slide the foam ink absorber segments back into the rubber frame.
Position the rubber frame back inside the right side of the printer. Press the frame onto its seat until it locks into place. Push closed the plastic lid.
Hold down the power button on the printer's control panel as you plug in the power cable. Release the power button and wait five seconds. Tap the power button again to reset the printer's ink absorber code.
