According to Canon's website, they say that your printer needs to be serviced. I would recommend sending it back to Canon if the printer is still under warranty. They state that there are some websites out there that give you step-by-step directions, but it will void the warranty. Here is the link to Canon's article:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=232&modelid=9388

This website is for the i80 series, but it has a step by step instruction on how to reset the absorber code.

Here's what I would do if it is not under warranty, but it is very messy. Take the printer apart to get the absorber pad out. Rinse out thoroughly with rubbing alcohol. Once it appears clean, rinse out with water and let the pads dry. Put the printer back together and reset the code through the directions on the website.

If you have any questions, or my answer isn't clear, please feel free to respond to my solution. :)

Let me know if this helps! Good Luck! Please don't forget to vote!

That is actually a secret code that you need a new printer!

Here is a video. It is not your Canon, but it shows you just how deep they are inside a machine.

Hello,
I cleaned the waste tank pad following the directions at
http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/421538-solved-printer-used-ink-tank.html

These were from Lanmaster.

Note carefully how you take it apart - with photos if necessary - so re-assembly goes well.
Wear gloves!

I get an error message on Canon i960 printer that tells me the waste ink tank full. How can I empty this myself?


Read it all here.
Scroll about half the page, to:
WASTE TANK ALMOST FULL or FULL ERROR MESSAGE PROBLEMThere is explained how to get rid of the error message very easy, and how to clean the waste ink pad manually. The latter seems not to be necessary, though.

Ink waste absorber


Here's what I did for i250...

1. Disconnect printer from AC power (take out AC cord or power off your power strip). Disconnect USB PC cable from printer.
2. Press and HOLD the POWER button (untill step 7).
3. Reconnect power cord (turn on power) to the printer.
4. The indicator should be green.
5. Press and release the RESUME button , the indicator should be orange.
6. Press and release the RESUME button again, the indicator should be green.
7. NOW Release POWER buttons.
8. NOW Connect the printer to PC (USB cable).
9. NOW...I opened "Printers" and saw that a "copy" of my printer (i250 or i350) had been made. Make that COPY your default printer and all should work...It did for me.

You might have to go through the "GUTS" of the beast and cleaned out the PADS (they are actually vacuum pads that the INK is sucked through during a HEAD cleaning). I heard it can be a very messy undertaking.

I'm not sure how much life this will add to your printer.
Good luck!!!
