Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer
Canon Printer ink absorber is almost full. Please advise how we can service this alternately replace it. Thank you.
You can follow the below procedure to Reset the message :-
1: Power off printer
2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3: Hold POWER and release RESUME
4: Press RESUME twice
5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The
indicator should be orange.
6: Press Power to set data.
The above one is taken from the Service manual for the above error message.
I have read that you can do at least one reset without cleaning the waste ink pad. That pad is at the bottom of the printer case. If you are
mechanically adept at taking things apart and putting them back together you can get to it. These pads can be washed out, but I understand that it is a real mess. You may be able to find a source for new ones.

Tips for a great answer:
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 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. 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 will not advise you as it is not a permanent solution.
