The absorber part # is qy5-0241-000, about $10.00. It is under the printer frame assembly and if you change these pads you still have to use diagnostic mode to reset the counter for the absorber. A messy job that is best done in the shop. Our shop charges $69.00 for labor.

SOURCE: printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center

This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.

SOURCE: Its appear " The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center."

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

Canon Printer Pixma MX700 All-In-One/ Alert message received. Ink absorber almost full. Contact service. How to get to? Have to replace?


Ink Absorber Full
This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

Displaying error message: waste ink well almost full. What does this mean, & how do I fix it? Dave


Unfortunately you will need to take this type of printer into a Canon certified repair center. You have a total of 8 pads inside the printer located on the bottom of the printer and the only way to replace them and reset the waste ink counter is to take it in.

This is where you will want to debate the cost of repairing it or just buying a new printer. Depending on where you take it and how much they charge you for it will vary quite a bit. The company I work for does these but we charge roughly $89 an hour plus parts which alot of places dont keep in stock. So your looking at around a week for the absorber kit to be mailed out.

If your still able to print and its not saying that the ink absorber is full you can contact the nearest Canon repair center and have them pre order the absorber pads and when they come in you can just bring your printer in and they can change them out. It should not take them more then an hour to do this.

Here is the part numbers for each pad:
QC1-4264-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4224-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4223-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4263-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4257-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4222-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4864-000 ABSORBER, INK
QC1-4221-000 ABSORBER, INK

Best of luck!

How do i trouble shoot waste ink absorber full in a canon pixma ip1600


Solution: Ink Absorber Replacement Options iP1600

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.

The ink absorber is full and printer won't print.


Normally when you get the "ink absorber is full" message, you would take machine to a Canon service center. They will either clean the ink absorbers or more than likely they will replace the ink absorbers. After replacement, the ink absorber full message will have to be reset which is done in the service mode.
