Where is the ink absorber located


The ink absorber in the MP160 is located in the rear righthand corner in the base of the printer. It is a thick felt pad which gradually gets saturated with ink which is sucked from the cartridges each time you hear the whirring noise before printing. I dismantled my printer once and washed and dried the pad before putting it all back together again. If you ignore the "waste ink adsorber full" warning for too long there is a risk excess ink will leak from the base of the printer. Dismantling the printer to get at the absorber pad is a major exercise. Some newspaper placed under the printer will buy you some time and stop damage to your desktop.

Error light flashes and cartridge won't center


Hi,

Canon printers are well known for this as it could be caused by the ink tank being full. Check the manual.
The ink tank is a thick pad of felt in the bottom of the printer and every time you clean the cartridges a small amount of ink is squirted in to the tank. It soon gets full.
Have a look at http://canonhelp.freehttp.com/

I have stripped my BJC 1000 printer down, washed out and dried the felt pad, replaced it, re-set the electrics as described on the above site and all is well now.
You may need help stripping the printer down as it may be held together by only two or three screws and plastic spring clips.
A firm could charge you £40 plus carriage for the repair but it can be done at home if you take your time and get some mechanical help.

Best of luck.

IT SEND THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE: SERVICE REQUIRED PARTS INSIDE YOUR PRINTER ARE NEAR THE END OF THEIR SERVIE LIFE SEE YOU PRINTER DOCUMENTATION


SOME THEORY
The printer has a waste ink pad, which basicallyis a plastic container with felt in it. When the printer cleansthe heads, either as commanded by you, or initially before printing,it spits out some ink into this pad. The printer remembers anapproximate count of ink that has gone into the pad in a "protectioncounter", and signals when the counter reaches a predefined limit.

Ofcourse, this pad has a limited capacity. Theoretically, you should takeyour printer to a service workshop for waste pad replacement andresetting of the counter - the printer is designed not to let the wasteink overflow and leak under the printer.
Of course the limit is setwith a safety margin, for a worst-case scenario, when you "pour" inkconstantly and it has no time to dry.

SOLUTION
If you wantto be completely inline with manufacturer's specifications, andespecially if the printer is still under warranty, you should contactEPSON service to do the right thing.

If however you want to liveon the edge,you can download a special utility to reset theprotection counter, replacing the felt or cleaning it yourself, or - ifyou are even more adventurous - without replacing the pad altogether,counting on the fact, that the waste ink dries out all the time and inpractice the pad should accept twice as much as the producer assumed -but don't place your printer on that antique table or sofa afterwards...
If you want to give it a try, go to this webpage to download the software (TIP: DON'T be tempted to change any other settings, as you may render your printer useless):

Message says that the ink overflow is full. How do I replace or correct the problem on my Cannon iP 1500?


1) Underneath the print head are 2 foam pads. Turn your printer on with the cover open and then unplug it with the print head away from the pads.

2) The 2 pads have 2 silicone tubes attached to them that run to the rear right side of the printer.
Taking the sides off you can unsnap plastic clips to remove the top half of the printer cover.

3) Follow the silicone tubes. They run into a white plastic pump that sucks the ink that falls onto the pickup screens and dumps it onto numerous felt absorber strips under the pump mechanism.

4) To clean or change the absorber felts you must first remove the Pump mechanism which is held on by 2 screws so that you have access to the felt absorber pieces

5) Run clean water over each piece of felt until the water runs clear and then place them on an absorbant surface (paper towels maybe) to dry.

6) Put it all back together the same way you took it apart.

This can be extremely messy, be careful not to get the ink on anything that matters.

Please advice why my epson picturemate 500 is not printing photos properly?


Take the ink-cartridge out, shake it only very lightly and put it back in the printer. Turn it on and go to the options section and run the printhead cleaner option and alignment, this might make it work properly. Good Luck
