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

Changing ink reservor on Epson rx620


Are you often to used refilled cartridge? That's possible your waste tank has been fulled. Hold down the 'Stop' AND the 'B&W' button while powering up. This seems to clear the error message and restore the printer. Worked for me--dunno how long it will last tho!

Please rate me SOLVED.

Regards.

My Cannon MP180 printer will not print is says that my ink absorber is full. What do I do?


The waste ink absorbers are pads that absorb waste ink during head cleaning cycles. One set of pads is below where the print cartridges rest when not in use. There is another set of pads at the bottom of the printer. If the error is "waste ink nearly full", press OK to clear the error temporarily.

Cleaning these or replacing them is a messy job and may not be worth it. If the printer is under warranty, get Canon to do it for you. If you decide to do it yourself, have plenty of newspaper (or other absorbant material) ready. Take apart the printer from the top; there are some screws you may have to remove to get at the pads. Then blot off most of the ink. Blot the excess ink from within the areas where the pads sit. Place the pads under running water until the water runs clear. Dry the pads; you can use a hair dryer to speed this step if you want. Then reassemble the printer.

Next reset the waste ink counter. Do not start this step before cleaning or replacing the pads; waste ink will get everywhere after a short time.
Power off printer
Hold down STOP/RESET button then Press and Hold down Power button
Keep Power button down and Release STOP/RESET button
Push STOP/RESET button twice
let go of power button

Wait 20-30 seconds - my display shows "canon Idle"
Push STOP/RESET button four times
Push Power button twice
Power off
Next time the printer is started the waste count will have been reset.

Please note that the counter is designed to be a number of pages that will be reached when the printer is reaching its end of life. Additional failures may occur soon.

I hope this helps.

Ink abssorber is full,what i do?


- If you really need to clean the waste pads, here is the procedure, but don't forget you still have to reset the printer to clear the error message.

Cleaning the Waste Ink Absorber on a Canon PIXMA ip3000

With the printer on, open the lids and wait for the ink tanks to center, as when you put new ink tanks in. Unplug printer. With a flashlight, good tweezers, and small hands (or enlist the help of someone who has them, or get loooong tweezers), reach in over the right where the ink tanks usually rest. Carefully remove the two pads which are held in only by a formed rubber foot. These two pads are porous but stiff plastic. Rinse them in water (in a bowl and carefully so that you don't lose them down the sink!) until the water stays clean. Thoroughly dry them by gently squeezing between paper towels. Swab area that they were sitting in with cotton swabs if you see any pools of loose ink. Replace pads. Reset printer's computer

Reset ip2000 / 3000

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..

Epson stylus R 310 "general error" message


Those generic refills are not worth i, plus they may void the warranty. Try removing them and cleaning the little circuit board sensor. Make sure leaked ink hasnt covered them.

RX620 Error Message


This message comes up after about 40000 registers on a use counter. I posted what I did on the Epson RX620 forum. Look it up. Basically I bought a repair manual on the net for about $10.00 I used this to take the RX620 apart down to the waste ink catch pads which I removed cleaned dried and replaced. It was a long job the first time and you need the manual in order to figure out how to do it. My pads were only about 1/3 used but I live in a dry climate. So punch those override buttons and keep going. You might put a plastic sheet or pan under the printer to catch the waste ink when it actually does leak out.
