    Wondering if anyone has tried to :D replace the ink pads in their Canon 9000 Pro?

    If so, the degree of difficultly :( and any manuals that are available showing step by step disassembly to get to the pads.

    Thanks in advance.

    There are two versions of the Canon 9000 Pro, as there is also a Canon 9000 Pro MKII version.

    You find a service manual for the old version printer here: http://www.google.dk/url?sa=t&rct=j...YO-MhQqeeiS7UgZHFirWA&bvm=bv.1355325884,d.Yms

    Sadly the service manual has no info about absorber change, but you might get the idea from this instruction for a Pixma 4000: http://www.druckerchannel.de/artikel.php?ID=1831&t=workshop_change_waste_ink_tank_canon_pixma_ip4000

    If your printer is the old version, then be aware that there is an error in the service manual regarding service mode operations. See this: http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=7171

    If your printer is the MKII version, then you will likely have to use a different procedure for resetting the ink absorber counter using a special service tool program. See this: http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=7416&p=1

    I think you need to replace whole purge unit, no? Where can you buy just the pads, and preferably wiper blades?

    Unless the purge unit is broken I wouldnt consider replacing it,
    a good clean out is usually sufficient enough to put it back in perfect working order.

    The same goes with the ink pads just a wash and dry and they would be as good as new again. :)

    When I saw the question in the first post, I thought of ink absorber pads. But I admit Smile has a point. The print head rests on two purge pads when not in use.

    So please brady38, which kind of pads do you want to replace?

    If it would be possible to replace just the print head parking pads then when replacing the head I would definitely replace them as rubber compresses over time, and if don't see anything by naked eye I bet it wears too. Since perfect seal in required, as I said I would replace them.

    Since I see only whole purge unit in canon service part list for this and other printers, and it is not very cheap I think it needs replacement when you can confirm that there is wear on the pads that would interfere with proper sealing of the print head.

    PeterBJ,

    Sorry, I did not make myself clear. I met the "ink absorber pads" in the bottom of the printer. When I had my i9900, I did a successful removal and cleaning of the pads. It was not hard to disassemble the printer and gain access to the pad area. Since the 9000Pro mkll is a newer model. I was wondering if anyone has gotten the ink pad absorber flashing warning lights, and if so, (1) Is there a command sequence to reset and (2) has anyone torn down their printer to gain access to the pads? I don't anticipate my current printer needing this service for a while, but am trying to prepare myself for future need.

    If someone has torn down their MK ll, I would appreciate any instructions or advice they may have.

    Kind of off the subject, I searched on Craigs List covering the whole Chicago Western area for 9000 Pro Mk ll printers, and only found 5 available. Since they are out of manufacture, the supply is slowly decreasing. Fortunately, I have another new sitting in the box, as backup.

    Thanks for your comments, in advance.

    Hi brady38

    Thanks for clarifying.

    According to this post, the old "button pushing" way of performing service mode operations doesn't work with the Pro 9000 MKII: http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=5090 . Instead you will have to use one of the Canon service tools, which I have linked to in post #2.

    As I collect Canon service manuals, I tried finding a service manual and parts catalog for the Pro 9000 MKII. I didn't find any free downloads, but Tradebit has both the service manual and the parts catalog. Links are here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/190074754-canon-pro9000-mark-ii-service-manual and http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/190094198-canon-pro9000-mark-parts-catalog

    I have bought a manual from this Tradebit seller, and I had the manual downloaded immediately after completing the Paypal transaction.

    I recommend getting the service manual as it has an instruction for the service mode operations needed for ink absorber reset. The extended nozzle check from service mode provides much more information than the standard nozzle check from the maintenance tab, and the EEPROM info print also gives a lot of info. The parts catalog contains drawings that might be helpful in disassembly and assembly of the printer.

    OK brady38

    PeterBJ is right if you really want to do any servicing or disassembling on your 9000 then the Service Manual is essential,
    I also bought a manual form Tradebit and I had it in seconds with no difficulties..:)

    Further to that it's well worth having a digital camera on hand to take lots of pictures of the process as you go so that you have a reference that you can work back through in reverse if the manual misses something or you get a bit forgetful about where that blasted screw came from...
