am getting an error - ink absorber is full - what is the solution to fix this problem


There are basically 3 solutions to your problem.
  1. Reset the printer to clear the fault
  • Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).

  • Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .

  • Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).

  • Turn the printer back on.
If this is unsuccessful, then the machine needs to be repaired. Canon does not recommend repairing/replacing the waste ink tank yourself. If you choose to make the repair yourself the waste ink tank is actually a sponge that absorbs waste ink. You can either purchase a replacement pad/sponge and install it or thoroughly wash out the old one and let it completely dry prior to reinstalling it.

There is also a reset code to Resume printer and temporarily remove the error as follows:

1 - press resume button and then press power button
2 - realese the resume button and press 2 more times then realese both
3 - press and release resume 4 times and power 2 times

I hope you find this answer useful and that is solves your problem. All the best!

WASTE TANK ALMOST FULL


Try following reset procedure:

1. Turn off printer.
2. retaining button Resume/Cancel press button POWER - indicator it will catch fire by green color.
3. let go button Resume/Cancel, continuing to retain POWER.
4. press button Resume/Cancel of 2 times, retaining POWER, after which let go all buttons.
5. when indicator will be lit BY GREEN - press button Resume/Cancel of 4 times!!!
6. turn off printer by button POWER.

If reset does not work, you have to take apart the printer and empty the ink tank located at the back bottom right corner of your printer, replacing the sponge inside.

Here is an alternative procedure

1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancelbutton, press and hold the Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons.The LED lights in
green to indicate that a function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)
3)While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times,and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each timethe
Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times (Each time
the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.)
5)After the function (menu) is selected, press the Power button. The LEDlights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When theoperation completes,
the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

Canon iP2000 waste ink absorber


You dont replace it, you wash it and reinstall it in the printer. Use hot water for washing it.

resetting the waste-ink full code:

1 - press resume button and then press power button
2 - realese the resume button and press 2 more times then realese both
3 - press and release resume 4 times and power 2 times...
The way it works is to PRESS the ON/OFF button plus the RESUME button at the same time, keep your fingers on both bottons all the time THEN let go of the resume button and press it 2 times and only then let go of the OFF/ON button (which you have been helding down while pressing the resume button 2 times). Then INDIVIDUALLY, first press and release the resume button 4 times and the power button 2 times after this. Works like a charm !
