Hi,
After spending a 2 weeks repairing some small Canon Inkjet printers such as TS3151, MG3650, today I need to change the ink pad on a Maxify MB2050.
Print pages are today : 42651-42700, the ink absorber is almost full.
Is there any MB2050 service manual available and/or has someone already done it and how as I don't know how to disassemble, leaving cartridges in their own place.
Any help would be great.

Edit : I've found an MB2050WI spare part (40£ delivered to france) but the service manual or how to is still missing ...

@Artefil, I assume you're aware that, apart from changing the pads, its' mandatory to reset the waste ink counter with the correct software tool. If not, is useless to spend money on that spare part and going through the process of disassembling, changing pads and reassembling.. Quite tiresome, messy and not easy at all, in spite of @The Hat's optimistic comment.

It’s not that difficult to remove the necessary screws to gain access to the waste ink tank.. All you need is the patients..
Just to know which are the necessary screws, that I don't know :(

A parts number and a link to the seller, please. This would be useful info for other Maxify owners.

They have all canon, epson, brother spare parts just ask through chat if you don't know the exact PN. And also if you're out of GB as you can't register if you're abroad, so that you must ask for.
My case it's MB2050WI (WI for Waste Ink I presume ) ;)

Tiresome and messy it can be, if you don’t take your time, so slow progress is all it takes..
Just to know which are the necessary screws, that I don't know I agree I'm afraid it's not as simple as it sounds
That’s the thing, unscrew the things you need to remove and if it’s not necessary then put the screw back in, I did it by ear and only removed the screws that I taught needed removing, the worst part is having the patients to take it slowly..

Please take Pics as you go along, because I found putting it back together harder because I couldn’t remember where all the screw positions were..

Forgot to take pictures while you were disassembling the machine ?... You lost your patience in the end.. ? ;)

I don't know if Artefil is repairing this Maxify for himself of for somebody else ( i.e. a friend or customer).
If it were my printer, I wouldn't bother at all replacing the waste ink pads and I'd simply reset the counter with a software tool, continuing to print normally until, eventually, the ink overflows. That may happen maybe after another 30 or 40K pages or perhaps the printhead would die before.
At this point, call it a day and get another Maxify, but a MB5xxx model instead of MB2xxx
