How do I Turn off my waist ink absorber error message?

You can't. You will need to replace the waste ink tank when it becomes full before it will allow you to print anymore. I had to do that with my Canon at one time too.

What is e 27 and e 8??

Those two are error codes, and they mean the following:

E8 - The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press the OK button to clear the error.
Printing can be done until the waste ink absorber becomes full. If the waste ink absorber becomes full, please contact your local Service Center for replacement of the absorber and machine maintenance.
The waste ink absorber is a part inside the machine, which absorbs ink used in the cleaning operations, etc.

E27 - Manual does not specify what this means, but tells you what you should do: Turn the machine off, and remove the power plug from the outlet. About ten minutes later, plug it in again, and turn the machine on. If the problem is not resolved, the machine may require servicing. Please contact your local Service Center.
You can read more about the error codes on Canon website.

Canon PIXMA iP 3000. Got message that waste ink absorber is almost full..... not sure what that is and what I need to do to fix it.

Absorber is a pad inside your printer that takes all the waist ink when it go’s into cleaning the heads itself this is inside the printer and some printer needs to be opened to clean all out, if not done when it full it will stop working.

My Cannon IP 1600 waste ink absorber is full. can you help me?

If when the head is moved to the position for changing carts, I think on the right you may find trays under where the head is parked, normally. Sponge out with cotton buds some of the ink and run a resetter for this machine (Google resetter for Canon ip1600) hope you find it

Printer message is: used ink tank is full. Q. where is it...and how do I empty it?

The waste ink tank on Canon printers is the ink absorber which holds the ink used during Print Head Cleaning process. When the error message indicates that it is nearly full, Canon indicates that the printer should be taken to the nearest Canon service center to replace the absorber. There is no supported "do it yourself" replacement for this piece of the printer. As per Canon:

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 <OK> 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.

If you feel your product might require service, Canon has excellent service options, and we are eager to provide any assistance you may need. Click the link below to locate an authorized service facility and obtain further instructions.

So, to answer your direct question directly, if the message said "nearly full", you can press OK and continue to print for a short time. If it indicated it is full the printer will not function until Canon services the machine and resets the printer.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!
