You need to have the absorber replaced at a shop where they can reset the count after changing the absorbers, otherwise ink could overflow and make a mess.

My canon printer 1p 1000 says the waste ink absorber is full contact service center


hi

you need to replace the absorber waste container. But to ensure you can work around this, do this first. Remove the square rubber at the end of the right side of your printer. Use cotton cloth absorb the waste ink. Clean and wipe the ink around area and place the absorber back into the tray.
Finally clean your print head by using dry cotton swab. If this deosnt work, try this: if it doesnt solve the issue, you must replace absorber waste ink tank .

  • You can manually override it, but I recommend getting it replaced.

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.

"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?


Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.

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.

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.
