Not easy for most people to replace or clean ink pads, but this will reset
1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button.

(Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button.

(Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 3 times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons.

(Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

After the function (menu) is selected, press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

Why is my canon ip1800 printer still not printing after cleaning the ink absorber, I still get the message ink absorber is full


Shelly, Did you reset printer after cleaning absorber.
Press and hold the "Power" button and reconnect the power cord. When the printer comes on, release the button. Wait five seconds and push the "Power" button again. This resets the printer's internal memory and overrides the "ink absorber full" error code.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Have problem with canon ip1800 refil black and color and everything sets and blinking orange 4 and green 1 time


acording to the canon led error codes, it means the absorber pad (for the waste ink, inside the printer) is full. you can try using this software tool http://www.ziddu.com/download/4287279/Software_Resetter_CanoniP1900.zip.html to reset the printer or do it manualy:
  1. Press and hold power button with your finger and then take in power cable
  2. Hold power button, then press resume button with your middle finger twice.
  3. Let in power button
  4. Printer doesnot blinking any more.
  5. At this step you had done Manual Reset Step and printer could be use again.
  6. But if manually your printer still error, you should use Reset Software permanently
any way, your printer absorber pad /for the waste ink/ must be cleaned.

I have a Canon ip1800, which keeps coming up with the message," ink absorber is full" Please advice how to sort this problem. Thank you


The printer counts the number of prints and cleaning cycles and when you get that error you need a shop to replace the ink absorber pads and reset the counter so the error goes away. If you bypass the error, the ink will fill up and leak out or ruin the printer sensors. The absorbers cover the entire bottom of the printer and require complete disassembly to remove.
