SOURCE: how to reset waste ink absorber full ip3300 warning?

I have the same problem, but Jet Tec waste inks. When I first replaced black (pgi 5bk)-don't forget to place the small chip from the original cartridge to replacement; it worked fine. But now, it has a lot of problems because this **** printer from canon only want original inks (and the original are tooooooooo expensive). I'll never bought anything else from canon.

Why was ink obserber near full

Ink Absorber is a big reservoir which fills over time every time your printer does a Printhead clean. This is a built in system of Obsolescence with Printers. However people like to keep printers long after they are considered out of date. Depending on what model of printer you have you can reset the Wast Ink Absorber counter however you do this at your own risk as eventually if the waste ink absorber is not emptied when the reset is done it will overflow and cause damage to the printer, the furnishings near where you keep the printer etc.

How do I empty the ink absorber on a Canon Pixma MP 800

This message means that the Waste Ink Absorber (Where all the ink that is used during Printhead Cleaning goes) is nearly full.

This will require the ink counter to be reset and the Waste Ink Station to be cleaned out. Resetting the counter and not cleaning it out will cause it to eventually overflow creating an enormous mess and damaging property.

If you are unfamilure with dissasembly and reassembly of printers I advise you to take it to someone that has experience with this process.

The Waste Ink Station is effectively a large sponge sitting under the chassis of the printer once you have disassembled the machine enough to get this sponge material out and cleaned it out and put it back in (Or replaced it entirely) then follow these instructions to reset the waste ink counter:

1] Turn off; hold Resume (red triangle in a circle)
2] Press and hold the Power button
3] Release Resume while still holding Power
4] Press Resume twice then release Power,
5] Printer will start in Canon Mode, wait till 'Idle' is displayed
6] Press Resume 4 times
7] Press Power to confirm
8] Press Power to turn off
Once restarted the machine will function as normal.

I stress again. If you do not clean out the waste ink station it WILL overflow and cause damage. Do this at your own risk.

When printing coming on the screen "The Ink

When turned on, the printer initializes the cartridge, and perform inkcharge. So there is some ink discharged to waste ink pad. The printer calculates the amount of waste ink, and when the waste inkreaches a certain amount, which approached the waste absorptioncapacity pad, then the printer will stop printing command. Intendedto waste ink does not overflow from the waste pad. To be able to re-use the printer must be reset waste ink counter., and replace thewaste pad. Or it could also extend the exhaust hose to outsidebottle.

There is ink leaking out of the back of my printer. Why is it doing that?

Probably the waste ink absorber is past full. (Most printers have a counter that will lock the unit when you approach this point. So if you did a counter reset, it is more common.)

The waste ink absorber is a pair of pads inside little plastic surrounds. The manufacturers recommend replacing the printer at this point (since under normal use the rest of the printer will probably fail soon).

If you disassemble the printer you may be able to reach the pads and clean them. Have lots of newspaper available. The pads are on the edges of the paper path below the print head. So carefully take apart the printer (often small screws hold the print head and it just needs to be moved out of the way). Then put them under running water until the water runs clean. Blot the excess ink from inside the printer. Then let everything dry (a blow dryer can speed the process up if you are careful). Finally reassemble the printer.

A bad cartridge (non-HP most often) or powering down the printer daily can also cause excess ink in the printer that would overflow.

I hope this helps.

Ink absorber full

This is a very common problems with canon printers. They are set for a certain number of prints and they need the ink absorber serviced. Now along with resetting the printer its best to replace the absorber. Here is link to site that has reset instructions.

Power lamp always red. The waste ink absorber is full. Contact the service center for the replacement of the waste ink absorber.

You need to have the absorber replaced at a shop where they can reset the count after changing the absorbers, otherwise ink could overflow and make a mess.

When I try to print, I can't; it says "The waste ink absorber is full. Contact the service center for the replacement of the waste ink absorber."

This error means that the waste ink pads have filled up to the point where the printer believes the ink will overflow and leak or cause damage to the printer.

To give you a quick primer... Every time you run a cleaning routine or printer borderless photos the printer will dump a small amount of ink into a set of highly absorbent pads that live in the base of the printer.

These pads can only accept so much ink before they become full but experience has shown that you could reset the EEPROM waste counter if you locate the appropriate codes for your printer.

I'd recommend asking on in the forums and see if someone can provide the information and code you need.

Hope that helps.

your problem is waste ink absorber is full,you need the canon mp tool which is use to reset the counter of your printer,but you must dismantle your printer to clean the waste absorber because if you will reset the counter without cleaning it, all waste ink will overflow on your printer.
