SOURCE: waste ink absorber is full
The printer counts every single droplet ejected by the print head due to waste ink absorber capacity. When the waste ink counter rise to about 90 % the printer shows message 'Waste Ink Absorber Near Full'; in this stage we can still continue printing by pressing Resume button until waste ink absorber capacity reach 100% and 'Waste Ink Absorber is Full' appears.
To fix this problem you have to reset waste ink counter to 0%. Even though we can just reset waste ink counter without resetting waste ink counter, it strongly recommended that you replace waste ink absorber to prevent ink flooding inside the printer.

This error means that the waste ink pads have filled up to the point where the printer believes the ink will overflow and leak or cause damage to the printer.
To give you a quick primer... Every time you run a cleaning routine or printer borderless photos the printer will dump a small amount of ink into a set of highly absorbent pads that live in the base of the printer.
These pads can only accept so much ink before they become full but experience has shown that you could reset the EEPROM waste counter if you locate the appropriate codes for your printer.
I'd recommend asking on nifty-stuff.com in the forums and see if someone can provide the information and code you need.
Hope that helps.
