I think this may work.
Reset Waste Ink
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.
By pressing Menu, Copy, Scan, Copy, Copy
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select [8] PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [Set] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.

SOURCE: Waste ink absorber is full. how to clear this

Canon recommend that you need to bring the printer to your local service provider, canon will not provide Joe Public with the replacement parts as consumables and even more importantly they will not provide the software to reset the error message.

From what I can see there is a hardware routine type fix for the problem,

Try
1. Unplug power and USB.
2. Open door and hold power button.
3. Connect power.
4. Close door, then release power button.
or

Try
1. Turn off the printer. And disconnect the printer cable.
2. Press and HOLD the POWER button, turn on the printer.
3. The indicator (L.E.D.) should be green.
4. Press and release the RESUME button, the indicator (L.E.D.) should be orange.
5. Press and release the RESUME button again, the indicator (L.E.D.) should be green.
6. Release both buttons.
If this hardware routine type fix works it is at best merely a temporary fix, and needs to be repeated on a regular basis to keep the printers running. For a more permanent solution you need to combine the fix with the more complicated task of removing the pads and cleaning them. This is where the whole process can go disastrously wrong, the ink is permanent and will stain hands, clothes and furniture if it comes into contact with them. Check out the info on this website and on your own head be it

There are a number of websites which claim to provide the software fixes however using these is a kin to sailing in uncharted waters, it is your own choice however I would be hesitant to recommend it to anyone especially if there are a few government secrets on your hard disk

My advice is to find out how much your local service center will charge you to replace the ink absorber, then decide whether it is worth the expense. And when it comes time to change the printer remember canon's have ink absorbers which need to be changed by a service engineer

For more discussion on this problem (and many of the hard ware fixes plus a few links to the software reset providers) see the forums on

3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.

The waste ink absorber is on the back of printer.There is one cover who can open from the left side.You can replace it or clean it but the procedure is dirty and prepare yourself to get dirty.

Hi there


Ok hope you have good luck.
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

I am not sure what canon you have so I cant tell you the tools you need for yours, i have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need.
with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink coming out your printer.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

How do I clean the printer waste ink absorber on my pixma ip6600D


You are looking at an aprox. 75% strip of your printer, the absorber sits at the bottom right had corner of the machine and it is a long drawn out procedure.
There are instructions for replacing and cleaning ink absorbers on You Tube and also instructions for resetting the printer. It is too involved and lengthy to try repeat here. Try looking at:-

How to take apart Cannon PIXMA iP3000 to clean the waste absorber


You need to replace the ink absorber kit and to completely disassemble the printer to replace the absorber. Attempting to clean the ink absorber is not recommended. Self servicing the absorber can be a very messy operation. I would check with a Canon repair center to see what the cost to have the servicing done by a trained technician. In some cases, it is cheaper to replace the printer.
