It's not easy, and you need to access service mode to reset the counter after replacing the ink absorbers. They are pads underneath the entire print engine for soaking up the waste ink. There are methods for reset posted here bu you risk an overflow of old ink if you do manage to reset. Sorry...no quick fix

"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.

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.
