Turn the printer on and as soon as the print head moves, pull out the power cord, or switch the printer off at the mains. You should now be able to move the print head (gently) by hand over to the left side.

My Canon MP210 printer [ USB001 ] said the Ink absorber is Full contact the service center. Guess what, the service center just gave information. I need to know if will be able to fix or will...


There are two possible ways to remove the error from your printer. First is to actually clean the absorber pads that are full of waste ink. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.
Clean the two absorber pads. There are actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the
ink cartridges when the carrier is in the home position.
Accessing the pads and remove them for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezers and extra cloth for some ink spillage. Using the tweezers, lift up the pads sitting on the rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing them under running water. Use warm water to remove the ink from the pads. Dry the pads and reinstall them. Same procedure if you are installing new pads.

However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error or E-27.

Catridge is not recognize to te printer.. even i bought a new one..


This is actually a very easy fix. Two absorber pads are located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges. With the printer on, lift the top to expose the cartridges. They will automatically move out of the way. You can move them to the left side by hand if the printer is not on. You will probably need a flashlight to see the pads. They each sit in a rubber retainer. The pads can be removed very easily and cleaned. Take the pads out of the retainers with tweezers. They clean up nicely with warm water but you can use something like Simple Green if they are stubborn. It is best to use a spray bottle (on stream) and blast it through the pad until it is white. Sometimes just putting it under a running faucet will do the trick. If there is ink in the rubber retainer after taking the pad out, it can be cleaned up with a paper towel. Put the pads back into the retainers and you have successfully cleaned the ink absorbers.

Ink absorber almost full


Hi


This issue with Canon Printers occurs when the Waste Ink absorber becomes full or sometimes due to sensor error.

To clear this error you can first try to clean the waste ink collector pads. Before proceeding please turn off your printer and unplug it from power source.
To locate these pads open the cover of the printer, move the cartridges with your hand. Now you can use a absorbent paper towel to clean these pads. These pads are on the right side of the cartridges.

After this you'll need to restart your printer. This will resolve your issue.
