My canon printer 1p 1000 says the waste ink absorber is full contact service center


you need to replace the absorber waste container. But to ensure you can work around this, do this first. Remove the square rubber at the end of the right side of your printer. Use cotton cloth absorb the waste ink. Clean and wipe the ink around area and place the absorber back into the tray.
Finally clean your print head by using dry cotton swab. If this deosnt work, try this: if it doesnt solve the issue, you must replace absorber waste ink tank .

  • You can manually override it, but I recommend getting it replaced.

The waste absorber is full

Call Canon at 732-521-7230 and they will sell you a new ink absorber pad. You will need the reset code for your model printer. Find this by searching for canon used ink tank. One of the results should match your machine. You can also take out the pad(It can be messy so wear gloves), wash with water hose, let it dry completely, and reinstall it in the printer.

Printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center

This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.

Waste ink absorber

You'll always find the wast ink absorber under the printer head after printer head prints and rest, there is a rubber type clip which cleans the head and the ink drips down on the cushion absorber. Disassemble the printer and remove the cushion than dip in the bucket of water until ink dissolves out of the cushion and wash under running tap until clean then dry and finish, put back the item and assemble the printer.
