Replacing the absorber is a hard task. if this is the first time you have had this problem.

Hold the ON/OFF button down, while holding the Stop/Reset botton down. Look under your finger untill the green LED is on. Then follow these - press reset button twice, wait a few seconds, and then press it 4 times. (You hold the power button down the whole time.) Then let go of both buttons. Then turn off the printer, it takes a while to respond to this. Turn it back on and off you go!!

SOURCE: When I try to print, I can't; it says "The waste ink absorber is full. Contact the service center for the replacement of the waste ink absorber."

This error means that the waste ink pads have filled up to the point where the printer believes the ink will overflow and leak or cause damage to the printer.

To give you a quick primer... Every time you run a cleaning routine or printer borderless photos the printer will dump a small amount of ink into a set of highly absorbent pads that live in the base of the printer.

These pads can only accept so much ink before they become full but experience has shown that you could reset the EEPROM waste counter if you locate the appropriate codes for your printer.

I'd recommend asking on nifty-stuff.com in the forums and see if someone can provide the information and code you need.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Ink absorber is full and must be changed. Waste

You might want to try just resetting your printer rather than changing the ink pad. The warning is based on a count of how much printing is done, not a measure of full the ink pad has become. Consequences of not changing the ink pad, if truly filled to capacity, could be ink leaking from the bottom of the printer.

The following video show how to perform a reset that should work for your printer. The second video will give you an appreciation for how to change an ink pad and help you to decise whether you wish to attempt.

Trust this is helpful.

Where can I get a Parts List for a Canon MX850 MF Unit


Ink Absorber Full

This may clear the ink absorber problem.
There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

My pixma ip1980 ink absorber is full. how to change or clean manually?


You can't. Here is what Canon says on their website:

Ink Absorber Replacement Options This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

Power lamp always red. The waste ink absorber is full. Contact the service center for the replacement of the waste ink absorber.


You need to have the absorber replaced at a shop where they can reset the count after changing the absorbers, otherwise ink could overflow and make a mess.

My cannon iP 2000 keeps that waste ink well is full how do I repair this


No repair is available. There is a little tray under where the cartridges rest and when the printer does a cleaning cycle, it squirts some ink into it. Eventually, the ink builds up and when the tray is full, it's time to change printers. Here is what Canon says:
