great that it tells you how to clean them but how do you get them out??

Mine is a Canon MX522 Pixma

I searched and finally found a video that showed it. You don't have to remove the holder. Just push down on one end of the absorber and the other end will lift up. Then use tweezers to pull it out.

I can't find a model number on my PIXMA and it doesn't look like any of the videos I found on the web. I found that the absorber pads, however, under the resting place of the 240 & 241 ink cartridges were held in place by a rectangular rubber cup that doesn't come out. After some fiddling, I realized that the rubber cup doesn't come out but the rather hard pads they held came out easily.

I have a Pixma 4500 and took the pads out easily with tweezers. They stuck a little but finally grabbed them. I kept looking for "the frame" that was used to describe where they were sitting, but it's not a frame like a picture frame, it's a seated bottom with cutouts for both shaped pads with an attached frame around edge. It is also not soft rubber but hard from years of use. I wasted much time just trying to pull on edge with tweezers thinking it was just a wrap around frame. Then I got so frustrated and just grabbed and pulled it hard with tweezers and to my surprise this whole piece came out that has a full bottom where both pieces sit in ,with an edge all around. Thinking it was just a frame I was gently pulling and of course nothing happened. Give a good yank and you should have no problem. Still don't know if it will fix my problem as Im soaking them in warm soapy water now. Spent the whole night on this- Hope it helps!

I have a MG 2922 and it looks like the ink absorbers are on the left side inside the printer.., how do I get in? They don’t move with the ink cartridges

Jim Strangways try this:

1. Open the printer as though you were going to install new ink cartridges, letting the cartridge cradle move to the center of the printing unit. Unplug the printer so that the cartridges will remain in their position.

2 Locate the waste ink absorbers in their black rubber frame. They will likely be on the right side of your printer, and will be located underneath the area where the ink cartridges rest when the printer is in standby mode.

3 Use a paper napkin or other disposable and absorbent material to soak up any excess ink that may be in the pads by pressing it down onto the top of the frame.

4 Pull the rubber frame free from the printer, wearing gloves to keep your hands clean. Carefully remove the ink absorber pad or pads from the rubber frame.

5 Insert new ink absorber pads firmly into the rubber frame. Replace the rubber frame in its original position and close the printer.

6 Hold down the power button, then plug the printer back in. Continue holding the power button down until the printer begins to reset itself and come online.

7 Wait for the green power light to turn off, then press and release the power button again. It should blink for two to three seconds, then stay lit; this will indicate that the printer has been reset and is ready to print again without errors. From here

All went well until restarting the printer. It is still not printing. Now it has a small orange triangle in the display window on steady with a flashing green character in the display to the right rotating from "E" to "0" to "8" repeatedly.

I tried step 6 & 7, above and I still get an error 5B800. Also, my ink absorber pad came out, with a little help from a tweezer.

The ink cartridges will not come to the middle because the flashing alert is on

This guide helpful : https://resetkey.net/how-to-clean-a-cano...

Thinks and tools needed to clean Canon printer waste ink absorber:

+ Latex gloves – make sure your hands are not dirty

+ Prepare paper towels

+ A large bowl

+ And a little detergent

=> Follow these steps sequentially to clean the waste ink absorber tray

Step 1: Wear rubber gloves to ensure your hands do not stick ink, pour warm water into the bowl, get the dishwashing liquid ready.

Step 2: Open the ink tank. Depending on your Canon printer model, this may be in the front or the back of the device.

Then wait for the cartridge to move out, and then unplug the printer’s power cable.

Step 3: Look for a black rubber frame under the cartridge assembly. This is where the ink absorption pads.

Step 4: Pull the rubber frame out of the printer and remove the ink absorbent sponge. The number of gaskets varies by model.

Step 5: Put the gasket in the bowl. Rub and squeeze them to remove ink. When the water becomes cloudy with ink, remove the solution and fill the bowl with warmer soap water. Continue this procedure until all the ink is removed from the ink absorbent sponge.

Step 6: After cleaning the absorbent sponge, squeeze excess water from the sponge and place them on a stack of three or four paper towels to dry.

– Check the pads every hour to determine if they are dry. If paper towels become saturated, change them out. Can use a dryer to dry at a small level.

Step 7: Put the ink absorbent sponge back into the rubber frame as they dry completely. Insert into printer, reinstall cartridge.

Step 8: Press and hold the “Power” button and reconnect the power cord.

When the printer is on, release the button.

Wait for five seconds and press the “Power” button again.

This resets the printer’s internal memory and overwrites the error code “5B00 error”.

– '''Download Canon Resetter here''' and reset 5B00 error.

Very helpful for me, thanks for sharing. Can this method apply to all Canon printers?

Open the lid on your printer. If you have an owner's manual, consult it to determine the precise location of the waste ink absorber.

Let the ink or toner cartridge slide completely out of the way. You will now have free access to the waste ink absorber.

Detach the waste ink absorber by pulling gently on its rubber frame. Pull it away from the printer to remove it completely.

Unplug the printer to prevent mishaps.

Remove the foam pads and place them in a bucket of hot, soapy water. Let them soak long enough for the ink to get loose. You should be able to scrub it away easily. If you can't, you need to let the pads soak longer.

Spread out the pads on paper towels or newspaper. Allow them to dry completely. You might want to just let them dry overnight.

Here is what worked for my MX882. If Canon is unable to assist, or generically refers you to Service Center or replacement (as was my case), try the following at your own risk:

1. Download Service_Tool_v3400.zip . This was the hardest part, as there were many dubious download sites. I successfully downloaded a virus-free version from foreign site http://resetters.ru/?showtopic=16305, and found the link on post #13 from Sir Sava.

2. Connect printer by cable to your computer (not WiFi).

3. Access Service Mode on printer. Power off. Press and hold Stop/Resume button, press and hold Power button, release Stop/Resume button, and then press Stop/Resume button five times. Then release Power button.

4. Open Service_Tool_v3400 program:

- Set Destination Region: USA

- Clear Ink Counter / Absorber: select Main

- Click Set in lower right corner of screen

5. This reset my error code, and when I restarted printer, it was fully functional. For me, this process resurrected this Canon printer (my third in three years).

Make sure you run a virus checker on the service tool. I believe the one above is the one from a Russian site I tried that was not virus free. I did find a version 3.6 download that was virus free, and although it did not display it's menus properly, I was able to use it to reset the ink absorber counter.

@jwgish I have not been able to find the virus-free version. Do you still have the link? Can you add the link ? Thanks

I can open the service tool, change the destination region, clear ink counter but when I click "set" which is to the left of each option I get the following error code: Error! (error code : 009). Does anyone know why I'm getting that or what to do about it?

As someone else noted these little hard plastic pads are NOT the ink absorbers, you may be able to look in and see the pipes leading to the actual absorbers. If anyone knows if the real ones can be cleaned or actually need to be cleaned please advise. Anyhow the reset tool brings the printer back into service for now !

Inside the printer, there is a little hose that leads to the pad. where all the extra ink goes down. Clean it and everything will be okey. RODEL BANEZ

Ts8050 on its stationary position for 3days now. Nothing apart from 5B00 and nothing else. No scanning, no printing and of course no copying! Any advice?
