Pixma G6020 service mode and ink absorbers

BajaBarry

I think I need to run an ink flush to fix my printing problem and I'd like to know how full the ink absorbers are before doing that. I found some instructions to put similar models into service mode but none seem to work on my G6020. Maybe how to find a service manual? I'd also like to know how to access the ink absorbers. Any help is appreciated.

Hi BajaBarry,

The service manuals contain proprietary information and are not available.

What is the printing issue that you are experiencing with your PIXMA G6020?

Yellow & cyan not printing and do not appear in the feed tubes but plenty in the tanks. 

Hi BajaBarry,

Please perform 2 printhead cleanings:

If yellow and cyan still do not print, please perform an ink flush:

I once had an oven that required a service call when the interior light bulb burned out. I have been using Canon printers for a very long time. I am very disappointed that the design of this printer, which I otherwise like, does not have a user-accessible way to view the ink absorber status and, more importantly, a way for the user to replace the them when full.
