Joanlkuehn,

You can purchase the waste ink absorber pads from the manufacturer or their service suppliers, but that is neither here nor there, The issue you have is that the counter will need to be reset at the same time and this can only be done by the manufacturer service agents, and they will not give out the program to reset it, they are not allowed by their contract with the manufacturer. Add to this that it is a horrid job to replace the waste ink pads and unless you know what you are doing, you will cause lots of damage to the printer and cause yourself heaps of headaches. To put it into perspective, even the trained technicians who do this every day, dread replacing waste ink pads.

Get a pro to replace them, it is worth it even if it costs a few dollars.

Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button on the printer to clear the error, so you can continue the print job. The printer will need to be serviced as soon as possible.

Message" waste ink absorber"


There is an absorbent sponge in the bottom of your waste ink container to help contain the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans the print head nozzles. That sponge is probably full and has triggered a "most informative" error message!

Check your user's manual about the procedure for changing the absorber and where to buy new ones.
