Canon MG3160 Waste Ink Tank cleaning
Canon MG3160 is an inkjet printer that is known for its high quality prints and reliability. However, like any other printer, it needs regular maintenance. One of the most important tasks is to keep the waste ink tank from overflowing. In this article, we will discuss how to clean the Canon MG3160 waste ink tank.
The first step is to access the waste ink tank. It is located at the back of the printer and can be accessed by removing the cover. Take out any paper jammed in the printer if present and then gently remove the two screws at the rear of the printer. Now, the waste ink tank can be seen and it can be removed by pulling it out gently.
Next, the waste ink tank needs to be emptied and cleaned. This can be done by using a damp cloth to wipe down the area around the tank and then using a cleaner to remove any ink residue from the tank. Once the tank is clean, place it back into the printer and secure it in place with the two screws again.
Now, the waste ink tank needs to be refilled. To do this, you will need to purchase a replacement waste ink tank. There are several options available in the market. The replacement tank should be filled with a high-quality ink that is compatible with the printer. After filling the tank, place it back into the printer and secure it in place.
Finally, you will need to reset the waste ink counter. It can be done by accessing the printer settings. Once the printer settings are opened, select ‘Reset’ and then select ‘Reset Waste Ink Counter’. Press OK to execute the reset.
Now, the Canon MG3160 waste ink tank is clean and ready to be used again. To ensure that the tank is free of any residue and not clogged, it is recommended to clean the tank once every few months. This will allow you to use the printer for a longer period of time and produce high quality prints.
