Canon ip90v ink waste absorber: (manual) - I just want to get the ip90v cover off, can you assist. I can follow instructions after taking cover off.
See Below:
All the Canons I've taken apart then have four screws that hold the entire printer mechanism on the plastic base. Some models do have a power supply module that slides out of the rear of the case, remove this first. -Only- remove the four screws holding the printer mechanism onto the lower case. Some models may have more screws, but becareful not to remove any other screws! It just lifts off. Set it up on a couple of boxes or chunks of wood under the tabs so the mechanism is reasonably level.

Now is a good time to take it outside and use dry canned air to blow out the paper dust in the back of the printer. Do -not-, repeat NOT use an air compressor! It is too much pressure, and air from a compressor or air tank is full of moisture and oil. And stay away, AWAY from the print head and the park pad and cleaning pump under it. Stay away from the paper path under the print head groove. If you don't, you can end up blowing ink sludge around the printer or blow air into the heads or inadvertently create a suction that pulls ink out the heads and blows it around the printer.

If you aren't wearing rubber gloves by this point, put them on now. The waste ink pad can hold an -incredible- amount of ink, partially dried so it is a lot more color than it looks. Do -not- do this in your bathroom sink! If your porcelain is worn at all or has any invisible mineral deposits, the ink can permanently stain it. Open a couple of windows and set up a fan as you'll be working with ammonia and alcohol. I know from experience that the fumes can sneak up on you.

Mix up a liter of cleaning solution in a clearly labeled, resealable container:

1 part nonsudsing household ammonia (clear, no perfumes)
4 parts 50% Isopropyl Alcohol (aka Isopropanol) (clear, no perfumes)
5 parts filtered or distilled water (-not- purified)
Take the waste ink pads out and lay them down on some newspapers by the sink. Chances are, it is no more than 50% color, as the waste ink warning is conservative so you don't end up with ink running out on your table.

Take the bottom printer case and run hot water over it to wash the ink out. You don't need to get it like new, just get the big blobs of goopy ink out. Pour some of the cleaning mixture in to help break it up. Dry it out with an old towel or paper towels and set it aside to dry.

Set the waste ink pads in the sink. Pour some of the cleaning mixture into them to dissolve the ink, then gently run hot water through to rinse it out. It will never look clean, don't try, just get it so there is little ink left in the wash water. It is a rather fragile felt-like substance so if you try too hard, you can end up destroying it.

Squeeze out as much water as you can. Do -not- twist it like a towel! You'll have to let it dry for several days.
