Not good advice, first the steps to reset are wrong, and if you reset without changing the drain pack assembly you run the risk of ink leaking out of your printer making a huge mess. Not all advice on this site is correct and some get you more trouble.

Green light flashes 8 times


IF THIS IS A PIXMA IP2000, then
Eight flashes = Waste ink absorber* almost full. The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink consumed during Print
Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.
Press the R R ESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error so printing can continue for a while.
A longer term RESET IS possible BUT without changing the blotters, you're exposed to ink eventually running out of the printer without warning but... if you still want to continue, here are the reset instructions. Good luck!
1) With the printer powered off, hold down the resume button and press the power button.
2) While holding down the power button, release the resume button and press the resume button twice in succession. Now release the power button. The indicator will blink in green and remain lit in green.
Now press the resume button 4 times and then the power button. You've just reset the waste ink counter. Good luck. Just hope it doesn't come back to bite you!

Ink absober is full


Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber for the ink used during Print Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible

Hi, We have had the Canon ip3000 pixma for about 5 years now. No probs., very pleased with it. It is sending me a message which I have never, ever seen before, and I can find absolutely no reference to it...


Hi,
when you sprint something, there is some time delay in printer, wich is used by printer to replenish color on print head.That means that purge unit, purges the ink from print head, to optimize printing or just clean the print head. Then the waste ink, ink wich is purged goes into absorber, its some kind of absorbing cloth under purge unit.
After certain number of purging, printer will automatically report absorber full.
You can clear the error in printers service mode:

<Service mode operation procedures>
1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the
Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function
is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the
Power button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release
both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed,
the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)
according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is
pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.)

4 times Green Waste ink counter resetting

Green means LED .

But 100% soulution would be to replace waste ink absorber.

Hope that helped!

Where does the waste ink go? It's telling me that it's almost full, but i don't know what to do.


Here is the link for the Canon website for your product. If you click on the support tab you can put in a question to help you resolve problems.

Here is what I found:

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 <Stop/Reset> 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."

I have found out how to reset the counter :-

1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
(DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)
4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button FOUR times
5) Press the Power button to turn the printer off.

This should reset the counter.

The replacement kit for the absorber is
Ink absorber kit (QY5-0146) I am still trying to ascertain exactly where the pad is located.

Hope that will help you.

Ink absorber is full and printer won't print


Dear caucoin,
This message appears when waste ink absorber capacity rise to about more than 95 %. To fix this problem you need reset waste ink counter and it strongly recommended that you replace waste ink absorber (integrated in print base unit). Due to complicated disassembly process i suggest you to take the printer to nearest service center. For emergency reason you may perform below procedure to reset waste ink counter:
  • Plug in power cable
  • Press POWER button while holding down RESUME/CANCEL button then release RESUME/CANCEL button (do not release POWER button)
  • Press RESUME/CANCEL button two times while holding down POWER button then release all button (printer entering service mode and light stand by in green).
  • In stand by condition, press RESUME/CANCEL button 4 times (light will flash alternately in orange & green each time the button pressed).
  • Turn off printer and turn on again.

Now your printer back to normal condition. Hope this will be useful for you and don't forget to rate me.
Regards,

Waste ink absorber is full


Hi!
The printer counts every single droplet ejected by the print head due to waste ink absorber capacity. When the waste ink counter rise to about 90 % the printer shows message 'Waste Ink Absorber Near Full'; in this stage we can still continue printing by pressing Resume button until waste ink absorber capacity reach 100% and 'Waste Ink Absorber is Full' appears.
To fix this problem you have to reset waste ink counter to 0%. Even though we can just reset waste ink counter without resetting waste ink counter, it strongly recommended that you replace waste ink absorber to prevent ink flooding inside the printer.
To reset waste ink counter, perform the following steps:
  • Plug in power cable
  • While pressing Resume button press and hold Power button (do nor release the buttons)
  • Release Resume button (still hold Power button)
  • Press Resume button twice in a row (still hold Power button), after that release both Resume and Power button (then the printer standing bye)
  • Press Resume button 4 times then turn off the printer
In this stage your printer has operated as usual.
Regards,

Cannot find information on waste ink absorber for Canon i80


The waste ink absorber collects any spilt in from the head and stops it leaking out or sitting in the bottom of the printer casing. The printer is telling you that the one in yours in nearly full. You know have two options:

1. Replace the waste ink absorbers and reset the counter (will require taking the printer apart)
2. Reset the counter only (you run the risk of ink leaking out)

The waste ink absorber for the I80 can be got quite cheaply if you google about.

You can reset the counter by:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press
the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is
selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power
button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 3 times, and then release the Power
and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights
alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in
green.
4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times.

Hope that helps
