Question about Canon PIXMA MP180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Sometimes, we manually need to clean the waste ink absorber, means you need to remove them and wash them... Follow the steps :
1. Open the top of the Printer and look inside.
2. Locate the waste ink absorber pads. These are at the bottom right inside your printer.
3. Put on the gloves. Now remove the waste ink absorber pads and holder from the printer by gently lifting them out. It feels like they snap out, so do not be afraid to tug gently to remove them.
4. Clean the waste ink absorber by soaking up the ink with a tissue or wipe. Set the waste ink absorber on some newspaper to avoid ink spills.
5. Go back to the Canon printer, and view the other waste ink absorber. This is also on the right-hand bottom in the back of the printer. This one has screws to remove and comes out with a plastic piece.
6. Wash the sponge with clear water. Allow it to dry completely. This may take at least a day. When it is completely dry, reassemble.
7. Replace the waste ink absorber pads and sponge. Connect the printer to the power source.
