THE INK ABSORBER IS ALMOST FULL


This error is shown when the waste ink absorber is full in the printer. Every time the printer runs a head cleaning routine, it flushes some ink through the print heads to keep them clean and clear. That ink runs in to the waste ink absorber. It is normally a large sponge or tank.
The absorber can be can be cleaned, emptied and reset but it is an extremely difficult and messy process. This means that the printer is at the end of it's life. Be careful when moving and disposing of the printer though. The ink absorber is full and so there is a small chance of the printer leaking when it is moved! To be on the safe side, put it in a large bag first.

OR AT RISK OF LEAKING INK TRY THIS PERSONALLY I WOULD NOT DO IT AND JUST BUY A NEW PRINTER

Resetting the waste ink absorber on a Canon printer can resolve some error codes that appear when turning it on.
  1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
  2. Press and hold the Resume button (triangle inside a circle).
  3. Whilst it is held down, hold down the Power button. The green led light should come on.
  4. Keep the Power button held down. Release the Resume button and then press it twice. The light should go amber, then green again.
  5. Release the Power button.
  6. Press the Resume button four times and then press the Power button straight after to confirm the selected action (Reset Counter Absorber).
  7. Turn off the printer and then turn it on again

Canon pixma mp140 ink absorber - what does it look like and how to get to it to clean it?


Hi Lang,

You will need to replace the ink absorber - please call 1-800-652-2666 to order this part, and it will come with directions on how to install it, it's a fairly cheap accessory. After a while all ink absorber pads become too full and must be replaced. Additionally, you can try to reset this error, as long as your prints look ok you can usually do this once before having to replace it:


  1. Press and hold both the "Stop/Reset" and the "Power" buttons on your printer.
  2. Release the "Stop/Reset" button.
  3. Push the "Stop/Reset" button two times, while continuing to press the "Power" button.
  4. Release the "Power" button. Your printer is now in Service mode.
  5. Insert paper into the paper tray.
  6. Push the "Stop/Reset" button four times.
  7. Press the "Power" button to turn off the printer. The printer will print counter information about the ink absorber before powering off.
  8. The printer will now work normally.

Regards,
Sean

Excess ink absorber is nearly full.What do I do?


There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printerwhere the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the inkcartridges 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 itinside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of theprinter to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissuea few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Closethe lid and the printer should now function normally.

Where does the waste ink go? It's telling me that it's almost full, but i don't know what to do.


Here is the link for the Canon website for your product. If you click on the support tab you can put in a question to help you resolve problems.

Here is what I found:

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.

Press the <Stop/Reset> button to cancel the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. 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."

I have found out how to reset the counter :-

1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
(DO NOT release the buttons. The Power 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 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)
4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button FOUR times
5) Press the Power button to turn the printer off.

This should reset the counter.

The replacement kit for the absorber is
Ink absorber kit (QY5-0146) I am still trying to ascertain exactly where the pad is located.

Hope that will help you.

The ink absorber is full and printer won't print.


Normally when you get the "ink absorber is full" message, you would take machine to a Canon service center. They will either clean the ink absorbers or more than likely they will replace the ink absorbers. After replacement, the ink absorber full message will have to be reset which is done in the service mode.

How do I find the waste ink absorber


The waste ink absorber is usually in the right side of the printer where the cartridges reside when the computer is off. To find the waste ink absorber you need to lift the cover of the printer remove the screws or some printer unlock the clip to remove the cover. After you remove the cover in the right side of the printer. The waste ink absorber is in the bottom of the printer head. Some printer you need first to remove the head before you can remove the waste ink absorber. The waste ink absorber is like a foam that we using in the dish washing you can wash and dry also. But before you can remove the waste ink absorber try first to solve the problem by using some guide how to reset the waste ink absorber problem. If you encounter this search in the internet about how to reset the waste ink absorber.
