    The printer is still telling me that the waste ink absorber is almost full. An eror may occur if you continue to use the printer while the absorber is full. Contact a service engineer.

    Can't I do this myself?

Sir,
U must go to service mode and what code no. it shows. Also Service Mode: This printer has a service mode for service-related settings and for performing test prints. The operator panel buttons are used to enter the desired service mode.

With the printer powered off (but still plunged in), hold down the "Resume Button" and press the "Power Button" and hold them both down.

While holding down the "Power Button", release the “Resume Button" and then press and release the "Resume Button" twice. 
Now release the "Power Button".

The indicator light should blink in green and the printer will make some noises.
You know you are in service mode if the green light stops flashing and stays green.

Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the “Resume Button” the specified number of times listed below.
Each time you press the “Resume Button” the light will change color to let you know the button was pressed.

1 time = Service test print. 
2 times = EEPROM information print.
3 times = EEPROM initialization
(4 times = Waste ink counter resetting)
5 times = Destination settings
6 times = Print head deep cleaning


thanks good luck

The ink well is inside the system underneath the print head. They suggest a tech do it because of how much you need to take off to get to it. I would also suggest this because you need to be very careful on what you take off.

There are many ways to reset this printer to not to show this message but it inturn is full inside and is not able to absorb any more ink.so dont try just resetting as it will be just temperory and the message will keep coming up again and again.the best thing is to replace the ink absorber pad.the pad is not easily accessible to remove and replace so its advisable to get it done from a local tech.it anyways wont cost much.

The usually is no well, so to speak. Usually there is a diaper like absorbent material under the park location of your ink carriage. There is a sensor there that reads how wet the environment is.

Yes, you can get to it, dry it out and wipe off the sensor (usually a flat spring connected to a wire. Often the excess ink waste sillway has a tube that runs to the diaper compartment. That all needs to be cleaned out including the absorber pads under the ink tray when it parks and mounts to seal off the ink head.

Normally, you won't find instructions on how to disassemble the printer, but you may be able to descern it.

To cancel the error message try holding the Cancel and OK button for five sends or until the lights flash off and on.

    Yes, you can do this yourself. A lot depends on your skill at disassembling things. The sides of a printer are usually held down by a few screws and then plastic pressure clips. You have to use care in removing printer cases off the unit. They can be a real bear. But, this all depnds on you. If you are a real Mr. Fixit, you can probably do it. If you break everything you try to fix, take it to aa local IT shop where they'll do it for you.

    These waste "Tanks" get full because you ink has drained out. The reason for that needs to be found also. Sometimes this is where its left to us pros to do the job. But, you need not send it back to Canon. That could be expensive.

It would be easier to buy another printer than to pay to have it fixed.its not something you can do yourself and it would cost more than the printer is worth to get someone to fix it. buy a new printer and save yourself a headache they are only about 40.00

Ink absorber is full


Canon printers have an ink absorber that soaks up any excess ink. When this is full it can cause problems with your printer. You can send it in to be serviced but a much cheaper option is to replace the pads yourself or to try cleaning them.
See this link for detailed instructions how to change the pads:

Two things. 1. check your cabling to make sure your printer is properly connected. 2. clean your printer's inkwells.
If you send me an e-mail, I can send you a service manual for a Canon Pixma iP1500. Manual is the same for both printers. I can also send you the software service tool. I have both, as I have a Canon iP1500 printer (cheap ink cartridges).

* For printer, using inkwells BCI-24, mistake, as a rule, is connected with that that inkwell is inserted not before the end and prevents moving the carriage. The Sensor of presence of the inkwells beside these printer no. The Amount of the ink pays the software driver of the printer.
** or printer has defined that is installed already used (devastated in him) картридж. Striking the PRESENTING (Resume\Cancel) will allow to throw the mistake and continue the seal.
*** the inkwell is installed after her(its) use again or inkwell is installed not in its cell. Or inkwell is not recognized (the led in inkwell does not glow). Or amount of the remained ink unknown . For continuation of the seal with fuelled by inkwell press PRESENTING (Resume\Cancel) more, than on 5 sec. The Printer will remember that was used fuelled inkwell and will disconnect the function of the determination of the remained ink.

In printer, using inkwells BCI-3/6, presence of the ink and inkwells is defined оптопарой, located in carriage under blank wadding by part of inkwell, for what in day by blank wadding of the compartment of the inkwell is formed reflecting prism.

I have a canon i560 ink jet printer. the yellow light flashes and the message reads The used ink tank is full. it won't print anything


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
