    Hi, my printer is giving me a message "INK ABSORBER IS FULL CONTACT SERVICE PROVIDER". This is the third time in two years. Previously I replaced with a new printer but this time I had used just for eight months. Is there any solution for this? Please help.

    I did receive a message that the ink pad was full of ink. So I took the pad out and cleaned it and replaced it. The yellow light now flashes 7 times. What should I do next? Ralph

The ink absorber (a felt pad) is provided so the ink lost during cleaning has a restricted area to ensure the ink doesn't escape into mechanical areas of the printer.
I haven't seen the inside of your model but this is probably being monitored using reflected light and once the reflection is reduced (pad changes from white to dark) this warning is triggered.

The printer has been disabled to avoid cast-off ink from overflowing the recess in which the pad is installed.

Unless you are very good at finding the sometimes many snaps that hold your printer together, it should be turned over to a professional.

As a retired tech, I need to warn you that the cost of labor and the pad needed will probably exceed the cost of a new printer.

If you decide to replace it, be advised that most printers are supplied with only minimal amounts of ink in their included ink cartridges; please consider buying cartridges along with the printer to have available when the original cartridges run dry.

CANON IP 1300 SERVICE ERROR 5100


ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your ink cartridge carriage that disables it from moving. It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire. You may try cleaning also the encoder strip with a moist tissue paper. Furthermore, you may also try cleaning CAREFULLY the contact points of the cartridge holder and the cartridge itself (those shiny bronze pins) with a moist lint-free cloth.

Its appear " The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center."


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.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

MY PIXMA iP1300 keeps error


since canon printers need service tool to reset the waste ink counter, i suggest that you bring your printer to an authorized service center in your area to have them reset the waste absorber counter and clean it as well.

Printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center


This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.

Canon Pixma ip1300 Ink absorber is full what can i do


another solution for a quick override is to unplug the power lead from the back of the printer. With one hand hold down the power button on the printer whilst simultaneously plugging back in the power lead. When the light is back on, take your finger off the power button. You may need to press the power button once more, but this should 'override' the problem until the next time you turn your printer off.
