How do I empty an ink absorber that is almost full?


The answer is that you don't empty it. Ink absorber or over flow tanks are not usually emptied. They are replaced. The removal process is different for each manufacturer and/or model printer. You didn't say anything about the model and make or I could be more specific.

Contact the maker of the printer, check the price for a replacement ink absorber or over flow tank and they will give you instructions on removal and disposal of the full tank. Depending on what printer you have, it may be more practical and less expensive to purchase a new one instead.

Good luck!

Message about ink asorber full keeps appearing


When the printer is not being used, the print-heads slide to their "resting" position,
in order to keep the ink-jets moist, i.e., to NOT dry-out.

Some ink is absorbed into that INK-ABSORBER.

Now, after a few years of usage, that ink-absorber is "full".

Like taking-out the garbage from your kitchen waste-basket when it gets full, and replacing the full waste-basket with an empty waste-basket, it's time to get your printer serviced -- replace the "full" ink-absorber with an "empty" ink-absorber.

Note that CANON printers do not actually "measure" the fullness -- they electronically estimate the fullness, given information about how much you print, and how often you print, and the "density" of the pages that you do print (text is much less dense than colour-photos).

How to fix my printer? it has message that the ink absorber is almost full


Not all the ink that leaves the ink-cartridges gets sprayed onto the paper. Some of the ink is "wasted", and ends-up in the absorber (a small sponge inside a small garbage-can).

A computer-technician can empty the absorber (or replace it), and reset the "counters" inside the printer, to tell the printer that the new absorber now is only 0% "full".

Error Number: 1700 The waste ink absorber is almost full. What is it? Where do I get a replacement? How do I replace one?


Not all the ink that gets pulled out of an ink-cartridge reaches the paper. Some of the "ink" is "waste". As such, it goes into an "absorber" (a sponge). The electronics inside the printer "predict" when the absorber is getting full, based on the number of pages you print, and the time between printing pages.

So, take your printer to a qualified printer technician.
They will empty the absorber, or replace it,
and "reset" the electronics inside the printer,
to indicate that the absorber has become "empty".

Waste ink absorber is. full. How do I empty it?


The waste ink absorber can sometimes be removed and cleaned out and put back into place. Although it is not always easy to get at. Usually once this happens it is time for a new printer. You can also contact Canon and see if they have a replacement part for this.

Indicates waste ink absorber is almost full on cannon i9900 print


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads cannot be emptied, only replaced.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

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.
