Hi
The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it or it will still not work, I not know about your printer I have only looked it up for you. It may be screwed down inside so you need to open all up or get a shop to de it for you.

INK ABSORBER FULL


Your waste ink absorber is FULL. So you need to replace your waste ink absorber to the new one.
This problem can not be solved by the user. You must take or send it to a service centre, where a technician will remove the old ink absorber, clean up any internal ink mess and enter a reset code to clear the "ink absorber full" condition.

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).

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.

Empty waste ink absorber IP4000


I found this at the Canon website. www.canon.com
I also have a Canon Pixma, seems my turn is up and coming too.
Ink Absorber Replacement Options This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.
