Canon pixma 1200


well with canon ip1200, its very easy to solve.And here it goes -- turn on the printer and place the paper to the feeder in order to print.now try to print a file by giving print command.now it will show that "waste ink absorber full" error.At this situation,disconnect the power cable attached at the back of the printer.Keep holding the power button for 5 to 10 seconds.without releasing,turn on the printer and when the power lid glows then on release the power button.turn the printer on again..now the error does not appears again.you can print your file easily.
                          but this is not a complete solution bcoz everyday in order to print, you have to bear the same procedure.
