Firstly, it might be important to note that the waste ink absorber is a little pad that sits under the cartridge's "home" position and collects any loose ink that may be on the cartridge. This prevents smudges, so it's a good thing to have. Many ink jet printers have them, but as far as I know, only Canon PIXMA printers display an error when a certain internal counter suggests that the ink absorber may be full. If you've done a lot of printing, the ink absorber may actually be full and you might need to have it cleaned or replaced to ensure the best printing quality. However, if you haven't printed that much or you have and you just need to print something right this minute, there is a way to reset the counter and stop the error from showing up again. Until the counter reaches a certain unknown point, that is, in which case you'll have to repeat the procedure.

Heres a canon link for finding your nearest service centre http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/services_locator/index.aspx However, you may want to review the following links - which explain how to do the cleaning yourself Theres a number of solutions on this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t181480-waste_ink_absorber_canon_ip_1600 This is not your exact model - but maybe useful to watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVpjqBr7KjU http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IrBdw7el2E Theres some instructions on this post on how to clean http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/41279 But Beware of causing any damage
