Beware that doing the below may cause other issues with your printer - your waste absorber can overflow and spill ink into your printer causing more issues. It is best to replace this component via an authorised repair center or at least try and clean it out.

Give this a go, with the printer off, press and hold the resume/cancel/stop button, now press and hold the power button.
While holding the power button, release the resume/cancel/stop button.
While still holding the power button, press the resume/cancel/stop button 2 times and then release both buttons.
The power light should be on. Press the resume/cancel/stop button 4 times and then press the power button.

This should reset your Waste Absorber count, at least it does on my MP830 and also Pixma 4200.

Error message 1700, waste ink absorber nearly full. Can I get the part to repair this myself?


Unable to advise about part availability, but..
This is a very mucky job and requires printer to be almost fully dismantled. This can be done if you are good with this sort of thing.
Then all waste ink would need to be washed out with water, pads fully dried and then rebuild printer.

Message" waste ink absorber"


There is an absorbent sponge in the bottom of your waste ink container to help contain the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans the print head nozzles. That sponge is probably full and has triggered a "most informative" error message!

Check your user's manual about the procedure for changing the absorber and where to buy new ones.

You know, I think this is the most common problem in all Canon Printers and yet Canon must do something about this. In my case I already have 3 Canon Printers The first 1 is Canon Pixma MP160 and the problem is "The Ink absorber is Full" then my 2nd is Canon Pixma MP145 still the same problem occurs my 3rd is MP145 also and I know sooner or later I will be facing the same problem.

Sometimes I think the Canon's Printer is Disposable it won't last for a long time. I just hope I can find the right solution to this problem, so that i can fix my printers. I have lost 2 already and maybe sooner the other one will follow.
