My Canon MP450 printer error message states that the waste ink absorber is almost full and recommends an early replacement. I can bypass the error each time but that's a hassle. A web search isn't much help; just showing how to bypass the error but not how to actually replace the absorber. The Canon site is worthless and I can't find the manual. Any ideas?

Thanks

Here is the manual.
They recommend sending it in for service (of course).

I found the following steps to reset the counter by Googling.
Not the best English but worth a try:

Discharge of the code 5100
1. Turn off printer.
2. retaining button Stop/Reset (red triangle in the circle) press button POWER - indicator it will light up with green color.
3. let go button Stop/Reset, continuing to hold POWER.
4. press button Stop/Reset 2 times, while holding POWER button, after which you will let go all buttons.
5. when indicator is lit BY Solid GREEN - press Stop/Reset 4 times! (this is the key)
6.turn off printer by POWER button, then turn on.
7. You should be set. If it didn't work, try it again, slowly. It WILL work!


Edit: Also check youtube. Theres a video on how to clean it but the quality is poor and I did not watch the entire thing.

In the beginning there was the command line.
