Workshop: How to replace waste ink sponges of Canon S- & i-models: Diaper change: Canon S- and i-models
You are printing a lot with your Canon? All of a sudden you get a message: "Waste ink tank full", and your machine stops working. With a little deftness you can change the waste ink collector yourself.
Ink-printers have to clean their print heads from time to time, or they offer the user to see that it´s done.
Do you know where the Canon printer puts the ink it uses to clean the heads? By and by lots of ink is going down the drain, and finally floats down to the printer´s bottom.
Editor Frank Frommer will show you now, how to change the waste ink collector for Canon S and i-models and how to reset their respective counters.
We use a Canon S750 to show the procedure, but our instruction works with other models (S- and i-series) as well. You will just find some differences in printer-construction.
For Pixma iP-printers we have another workshop for you: Workshop: Change Waste-Ink-Tank Canon Pixma iP4000.
If you are now concerned about your printer, read this first: "Lifetime of a waste ink collector" here. As long as the printer doesn´t refuse to work you don´t have to worry about the waste ink collector.
