Resetting the waste ink absorber on a Canon printer

1.Make sure the printer is turned off.

2.Press and hold the Resume button (triangle inside a circle).

3.Whilst it is held down, hold down the Power button. The green led light should come on.

4.Keep the Power button held down. Release the Resume button and then press it twice. The light should go amber, then green again.

5.Release the Power button.

6.Press the Resume button four times and then press the Power button straight after to confirm the selected action (Reset Counter Absorber).

7.Turn off the printer and then turn it on again

Hopefully this helps

I have done this numerous times, I have no green led light. The only light that comes on is the blue copy light


Sorry about that, I also looked on the Ifix guide page and can't find your printer model. Hopefully you get it sorted.


This absolutely does not help. Pressing the Resume Button (STOP) question is it an Off On situation need to press it on off on off on off on off ? Or just twice. Tried it both ways. I do not get a yellow light step 2-3. Just Blue = on. My printer is an MX890. Canon does not support this printer any more. Sad news for HELPDESK Professionals. I was one for the State of Virginia in the Mental Health VITA, for 23 1/2 years . Cannon Help Desk seems like they are not versed in old equipment or just do not give a %#*@ about customer satisfaction for their products. There must be some old-timer who knows how to clean or reset an Ink Absorber in an MX890 if it is a brainless operation. I need the steps spelled out exactly what the power light does on the four clicks please. I have used tissue to absorb the ink all along the printer track to reduce it being almost full. Resetting the counter would be a blessing. Any one can email me. Appreciate it very much. Thank you.


It worked for me. Thanks heaps.


First I dig up the rubber pad, cleaned, dried then put the both plastic cover and did the procedure you suggested.

I tried speedytechlive, mine is a canon MX 895, First of all the light is blue unless, I am colour blind. I have tried 20 X , the outcome to these procedure is "Negative:. What to do next, maybe I cleaned the wrong ink absorber. Could you please write a diagram, where the ink absorber is and please explain step by step, that would help. Frustrated Pinky
