How to replace ink absorber canon mx310


Hello,

Unfortunately this is not an end user item. The ink absorber is basically a big felt pad. When the printer cleans the print heads at the beginning of the print cycle it spray ink on the pad o clean the printhead nozzles. The printer is programmed to count these cleaning cycles and when the number is up it gives the ink absorber error on the display. The printers use the ink absorber to prevent the used ink from dripping out of the printer onto you table or desk. By the time the absorber registers that it is full it really is soaking wet with ink, you don't want to deal with that mess. It really is like an end of life for the printer notification. You would have to open the printer, remove and wash the absorber and clean the holder then reset the counter in the printer just to get t going again. The manufacturers don't even sell the absorbers because they treat this as a non-repairable printer. Sorry for the news but I have been a printer tech for 15 years and that's really the best thing to do, get a replacement printer.

WHAT IS AN INK ABSORBER


The ink absorbers are a set of rubbery pads that absorb the ink during the printer cleaning cycle. They can also absorb ink from borderless prints (where the ink goes out to the edges of the paper). Some of these pads are below where the print head goes when in standby mode. Additional pads are further down inside the printer.

To get at them, you need to disassemble the printer and it's a messy job to replace or clean them. The counter for the waste ink pad full is set to a value that usually should be reached near the expected end of life of the printer.

If the printer is still under warranty, contact Canon to have them deal with the problem and reset the printer.

I hope this helps.

(You may be able to find the reset command by Googling waste ink full and your model number.)

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.

"ink absorber is full contact


while the ink on the ink absorber is submitted and must be cleaned. disassemble the printer until the ink absorber is reached, remove the ink absorber, with an alcohol solution to clean the ink dissolve deposits. It is better to make this a specialist

Triangle and ON/OFF switch both flashing. Window reads 'CHECK PRINTER'. What exactly do I check? Window had been reading 'WASTE INK NEARLY FULL' for a fortnight, but I couldn't find out how to deal with...


The waste ink absorber is getting full.
Press the OK button to clear the error.
Printing can be done until the waste ink absorber becomes full. If the waste ink absorber becomes full, please contact your local Service Center for replacement of the absorber and machine maintenance.

The waste ink absorber is a part inside the machine, which absorbs ink used in the cleaning operations, etc. http://support-nz.canon.co.nz/contents/NZ/EN/8000137103.html

Absorber is full


Hi ....

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.

Please vote if this helps .... Cheers :)
