Everytime i print documents, the windows show THE INK ABSORBER IS ALMOST FULL CANCEL PRINTING ..pls help me to fix this problem ..thanks

So you probably have a Canon Pixma printer with an error code E27 = "Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full".
These two tutorial videos will teach you:
1. How to clean the MAIN ink absorbers:
But there's a second ink absorber - the PLATEN one - which he does not talk about. The PLATEN is in the black plastic directly underneath the printhead as it slides back and forth. CLEAN THE PLATEN TOO before following the Part 2 video to reset both the MAIN and PLATEN ink absorbers in your software. And don't repeat his mistake when putting the printer back together - the springs he points to at 4:30 WILL fall out! 2. How to reset your printer's internal firmware to remove error alert:
P.S. Of course it is much easier to bring it to ther printer service (even better if your warranty service can do it for free, if the full ink absorbers error was not caused by too intensive printing, i.e. not your fault).

I filled my cartilages but they printer says they are empty

If you refilled the cartridges with a refilling kit then this error will continue. You see, cartridges have a chip installed on them and it is programed to calculate approximate ink remaining after a certain number of pages are printed.

For eg, a chip on a new cartridge is programed that a full page takes say .5 ml, then if you print 1 full page or two half pages, it will deduct .5ml from the ink volume. When it reaches zero, it does not know how much ink is in there; it never knew in the first place. Now if you refill it up, the chip just thinks that all the pages have been printed so the cartridge must be zero.

In short, this error will stay, if you are able to print ignore the warning and continue to print until the print quality degrades. If you are unable to print you might have to install a new cartridge. OR if you're luck, you may find a chip reseter on the internet or from the refill service.

Ink absorber full messgae appears when I try to print, and machine will no longer print

Absorber full means you need to take it to a shop to get new absorbers and have the error reset by a Canon tech. The error won't go away until it's reset properly.

Used ink ?


Issue: Alarm / Power light flashes orange 8 times consecutively (Waste Ink Nearly Full Error)
Solution: Ink Absorber Replacement Options i350

Ink Absorber Replacement Options 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 by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. 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.

Solution: Reset the printer
Resetting the Printer By resetting the printer's power, the print buffer is cleared and certain sensors are reset. If there is invalid data in the buffer, or sensors are stuck in a particular mode; errors may occur. Follow these steps to reset the printer:
  1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).

  2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared) .

  3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. If troubleshooting a communication issue, reconnect the data cable (not applicable to WiFi, Bluetooth or Infrared).

  4. Turn the printer back on.
Note: If resetting the printer does not work, please attempt any other solutions that appeared in your search results.If this is a hardware error on the printer, the printer may need to be repaired.

Counter reach its preconfigured limit it is just, you have to reset the counter back to zero count. This feature could be attributed not to overflow the waste bin.

Hope you get it easily.

Print Cartridge Error

Have had much experience with HP AIO models and would try to double check the contacts on the cartridge carriage.. sometimes a q-tip swap dipped in alcohol gently over the contacts will fix this - also note the dates on the ink cartridges (even the new ones) If the dates are previous to the date showing on the machine, this will give this error, but can be worked around by clearing the memory with a factory or full (hard) reset that sets everything back to zero dates. THis usually involves holding down certain button combos while plugging the machine in... Try a search for reset codes on HP site or google with model number and "reset code" to find the proper button combo.

I am not able to print and it shows this message. Can you be able to help me resolve this problem? The used ink tank is full. Cancel printing and turn the printer off and then back on. If this doesn't...

It seem that the error message is caused by non-user replaceable parts which refer to ink pads. This ink pads is a porous material that used as ink tanks for waste ink when printer is turning on and head cleaning. The best solution that we can advice is to send the printer to nearest service center in your area, probably authorized by your printer manufacturer, and if your printer manufacturer has ink pad reset utility tool you can run it to reset the ink pad counter to zero.
