    I have a Canon iP3000 printer. Recently, when I was cleaning my nozzles in the color cartridges, a message appeared, stating that my waste ink absorber was almost full. I need to have someone tell me what I need to do to get rid of this excess ink, so that I don't have to keep pushing the reset button.

Hi
First try to reset :

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.


Also check for the two small pads (oval, about 3/8 x 1 inch)under where the ink cartridges sit. They might be grundgy, take them out, try to clean them with a kleenex, also clean out the slot that they sit in.
The waste pad can also be washed out with repeated warm water, dried over night and refitted . It depends on your DIY skills in getting to it, and then replace the pads

For sure that'll do the job..

Please revert for any clarifications.

Thanks
Rylee

Brother MCF-J4710DW says ink absorber almost full and won't print? Never heard of ink absorber. Where can I purchase replacement and how do I do it


Many ink-jet printers have a pad in the case to absorb the ink from cleaning cycles. Often these show "full" long before they are actually full, and you can reset the counter and continue using them. I found your answer here:

HOW TO RESET CANON MX 308


I found this in the canon troubleshooting guide:

The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used during Print Head Cleaning, for example.
This error message indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
However, because printing is disabled once the ink absorber becomes completely full and until the ink absorber is replaced, you are recommended to contact your Canon service representative as early as possible. (You will need to replace a particular part of the machine.)

I hope this is of some help. Good Luck
