The first error was waste ink near full which you can bypass with resume button, now the absorber is full which means it won't print until you have the drain pack replaced and the counter reset by a shop.

Reset. Orange light blinks several times. Then Green. Then orange several times, then... on and on. Cannot reset. All ink cartridges have ink.


count the number of orange flashes in between the green light. two flashes = out of paper, 3=paper jam, 4=empty ink tank, 6=print head not installed, 7=print head defective, 8=waste ink tank is almost full
