    My canon i350 keeps coming up with a page saying that the waste ink absorber is full. I'm wondering where exactly it is and how do I change it.

You need to take the printer apart and replace the ink absorbers. There are 2 of them. Then you also use a ip1500 service tool(software) to reset the counters. You really need a tech to do this.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

    You can try this,I just found it.

    How to physically change the ink waste absorber?

    The waste ink absorbers can be found at the bottom of the printer case.
    Normally you'll have to open the printer case, loose the screws of the print unit and remove the hole print unit from the lower part of the printer case.

    4 step to Reset waste ink tank counter

    STEP 1:- Disconnect printer from AC power
    STEP 2:- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and connect printer to AC power
    STEP 3:- release the the POWER button
    STEP 4:- Press the POWER button again

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

    Thanks, Joe

"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?


Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.

How to take apart Cannon PIXMA iP3000 to clean the waste absorber


You need to replace the ink absorber kit and to completely disassemble the printer to replace the absorber. Attempting to clean the ink absorber is not recommended. Self servicing the absorber can be a very messy operation. I would check with a Canon repair center to see what the cost to have the servicing done by a trained technician. In some cases, it is cheaper to replace the printer.
