Re: how to reset waste ink absorber full ip3300 warning?
I have the same problem, but Jet Tec waste inks. When I first replaced black (pgi 5bk)-don't forget to place the small chip from the original cartridge to replacement; it worked fine. But now, it has a lot of problems because this **** printer from canon only want original inks (and the original are tooooooooo expensive). I'll never bought anything else from canon.

I am told that this will reset your counter and eliminate the full absorber warning that you are getting.
Cleaning the pads is messy, sending the printer to Canon is expensive,
I used a simular reset code for my MP470 and haven't had any problems.
1. To clean physical pads: Open cover (as if replacing ink cartridge). Locate waste ink pads, they are far right under cartridge slider. Pry up waste ink pads (inky, might want to wear gloves). Rinse pads in sink or with alcohol, dry. Replace pads. Make sure pads are fully seated.
2. To reset waste ink counter: Press Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan to enter service menu. Use arrow keys to scroll to "Service menu counter access". Press OK. Use arrow keys to scroll to "ABS-M DOT COUNT" Press Copy. Use arrow keys to reset count to zero. Press OK. Press Stop/Reset.
You need to replace the waste ink absorber and then reset the counter. Generally when these errors occur the waste ink absorber needs replacing, if not your images will start to degrade in quality and you will start to see ink splays / splodges appearing as well as random spots and ink patches. In the mean time press RESUME /CANCEL to continue printing.
The waste ink absorber is a piece of sponge that (as its name implies) absorbs waste ink. On many Canon printers it an be removed if you are fairly dextrous. Wash it out and dry it and then refit. It may well be a fiddle but it will go back in.
The difficult bit is resetting the printer so that it knows the absorber is empty.
Do a google on resetting the waste ink warning for your particular printer (it's not the same for every Canon).
It's done with various combinations of button pressing and light sequences and generally works first time (though one of mine took 4 or 5 goes before it actually reset).
Reset ip2000 1. Turn off printer 2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button. 3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go. 4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go. 5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking. 6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times. 7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more. 8. Your printer should respond as normal.. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
