Open the printer, locate the absorber, wash it, then centrifugate to get it dry, install it again and reset the printer.
The absorber is like a sponge filled with ink when it's used.

My Canon Pixma MP450 keeps reading ink absorber full. What does that mean?


Like peeling potatoes or oranges or apples, and throwing the peel into a garbage-bin, eventually the bin will get full, and you'll have to empty the bin, before you can do more peeling.

Similarly, when printing, some INK is "wasted", and ends up in a small bin, with an ABSORBER pad (like a baby diaper) in the bin.

So, your printer's bin has become full, and a qualified printer technician can properly empty the bin.

Waste ink absorber


You'll always find the wast ink absorber under the printer head after printer head prints and rest, there is a rubber type clip which cleans the head and the ink drips down on the cushion absorber. Disassemble the printer and remove the cushion than dip in the bucket of water until ink dissolves out of the cushion and wash under running tap until clean then dry and finish, put back the item and assemble the printer.
