Canon Pixma Ip1700 will not print, because the Ink absorber is full.


Hi there
Please under-stand at some time you will need to clean out the waste inkpads that are inside your printer or it going to be a big mess of inks coming out.
Some times the IP tools will fix it Canon Pixma iP1200, iP1600, iP2200 Resetter

6. In CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER, select MAIN or PLATEN. The selected waste ink counter will be reset. MAIN resets the main waste ink counter, PLATEN resets the platen waste ink counter.

The Waste Ink absorber is almost full, where is the waste ink absorber???? How do you clean it?? I have a Canon iP1600 USB 002


Not sure on a Canon, but you can buy a replacement pad. I would buy a Waste Ink Container which sits outside the printer. When it's full you pour down the sink. The waste ink is not usable. You can check the link below is there's one for your printer. While there check if they have a CISS for your printer, it will save you Tons of money.
