Apears:ink threshold exceeded. do not ship unit in its current state

not enough details but at a guess from the reference to ink and do not ship , I would say that the tray that collects the excess ink is full and needs attention

Printer won't print B&W even though black cartridge is full but 2 colours are empty.

Although you are only trying to print a B & W picture, the color print cartridge/cartridges must also contain ink in order for the printer to work. All print cartridges must contain ink for printing of any type to take place.
Load the color print cartridges and the B & W picture will print.
If you were trying to print a color picture and the B & W cartridge was empty, the printer also, would not print.
I hope this helps you out.
Good Luck

Waste ink nearly full

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
If the waste ink pad is nearly full you will need to have it replaced or reset the purge counter to get rid of the message. Please be informed that even the message is resetted theres a tendency that the inkpad will overflow and you may find spill at the bottom of the printer.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

My Canon MP390 Printer has come up ''Waste Inn Tank nearly full'' What should I do

CANON printers "compute" the "fullness" of the waste-ink container, based on the number of pages printed, and the "density" of the ink on each page. So, this calculation has produced a "nearly full" prediction. Take the printer to a qualified technician.
They will empty the waste-ink container, and "reset" the electronics in the printer, back to "zero-per-cent-full".

I am getting E 2 and E 7 and a message comes up saying ink absorber is full?

Compare it to having a garbage-bin in your kitchen.
Eventually, it gets full, and you must take its contents, and put them into the garbage-bin outside your home.

Similarly, when your printer prints, some "extra" ink is produced (in addition to that ink that reaches the paper), and that ink is saved inside the printer, in an absorbent container. That container is monitored, and the printer is reporting that the container is full.
So, "empty" the container, by replacing it, or getting a qualified printer technician to replace it.

Message" waste ink absorber"

There is an absorbent sponge in the bottom of your waste ink container to help contain the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans the print head nozzles. That sponge is probably full and has triggered a "most informative" error message!

Check your user's manual about the procedure for changing the absorber and where to buy new ones.

Ink tank error message Canon iP3500

Canon ink tanks contain a chip allowing the printer to identify genuine ink tanks. You need to buy reasonable quality replacement ink tanks i.e. from (Google) 'Inkjets & Toners'
