Your MP780 printer has decided you have too much ink from the cleaning cycles in the absorbent pad inside the printer. Go to www.fixyour ownprinter.com and put "MP780 waste ink" into the search function. Follow the leads to find out how to clean the waste ink out and more important to find the code to reset the printer to get rid of the waste ink message.

Why was ink obserber near full


Ink Absorber is a big reservoir which fills over time every time your printer does a Printhead clean. This is a built in system of Obsolescence with Printers. However people like to keep printers long after they are considered out of date. Depending on what model of printer you have you can reset the Wast Ink Absorber counter however you do this at your own risk as eventually if the waste ink absorber is not emptied when the reset is done it will overflow and cause damage to the printer, the furnishings near where you keep the printer etc.

The wast ink absorber is almost full


the waste ink absorber is a small unit inside the printer where the waste ink goes in. it is a common problem in cannon printer. the ink absorber cannot be replaced mate so when it says full, buy a new printer because its not worth repairing it.

The waste ink absorber is nearly full on a Cannon Pixma MP110 printer - how can I change this without resetting the printer software?


The software won't help, you need a shop to replace the absorber pads and reset the counter thru service mode.

Waste Ink near full shows on screen. Won't print!


Hi ...

Cannon Pixma MP780 have an absorber and this error is related to this absorber.

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. 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.

I would suggest that you take your printer to the nearest cannon service centre and get it repaired.

Don't forget to vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

Where is the foam pad located so I can clean it?


Your Printer needs servicing

The waste ink pads are the pads that the print head sits on on the right of the printer. You see when the cartridge returs to its neutral position on the right of the printer the pads below it are the ones you are looking for..

You need to replace the pads and reset the printer or it still wont work..

you can also take the pads out , wast then with rubbing alcohol and put the back in the reset the printer..

HERE is the service manual that will give you step by step instructions on how to do this
