Ink absorber full


There are two possible reasons for an error ink absorber full. First, is the ink absorber pads is actually full of waste ink and needs cleaning. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.

Clean the two absorber pads
. Its is actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when it is in home base position.
How to access the pads and remove it for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base.. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezer and extra cloth for some ink spill. Using the tweezer, lift up the pads sitting on a rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing it under a running water. Warm water will be nice to remove the ink from the pads. After this, you can now return the pads. However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error.

For the paper jam you remove the back cover and clean the 4 rubber rollers with alcohol, you can rotate the rollers forward while you clean. For carriage jam you start by cleaning the encoder strip that runs across behind the carriage unit, the clear strip with black bars on it, you can wipe with a Q-tip damp with alcohol. If no help you may need to take apart and clean dried ink off of the service station on the right.

Paper Jam - HP G85 Ink Jet Printer


You open the door from the back of the printer (turn the knobs) and the paper can be removed from the back. After removing paper jam, replace the door. It is a long door as wide and the printer, but about 2 1/2" wide.

Printer Cartridges


Since this is an all-in-one. It could be any of the following: A software glitch since these are software driven. Check HP for updates. A clogged nozzle on the cartridge- try cleaning the cartridge print nozzle with a foam tip swap or coffee filter soaked with ink jet cleaner or 90% isopropyl alcohol. Try a different cartridge. Try cleaning the contacts. Try using the HP image zone software. Go to Setup, Tools, and Clean print cartridge. Worst case scenario bad flex cable or board.
