How do you exchange empty cartridge. When you open the in cover it does not move to the middle in order to access and replace.

This was how I solved the error 006 issue when I tried to reset the absorber counter. My printer is Canon MX882. I first had to set the printer in maintenance mode by doing the following:
- Press and hold resume/cancel button (one with triangle in the circle).
- Press ON button while holding resume/cancel button (now you are holding both).
- While holding the ON button press resume/cancel button 5 times.

Wait for a few seconds then set the ink absorber counter from the service tool. I got confirmation that action was finished from service tool right away. I turned off the printer then turned it back on. Everything was good!
