SOURCE: my canon ip4500 says that the ink absorber is full contact the service centre

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.

Do vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

SOURCE: My Canon MX300 printer is telling me that the ink

Hi there
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

I am not sure what canon you have so I cant tell you the tools you need for yours, i have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need.
with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink coming out your printer.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hello ihave canon pixma mx328 i moves to other country but i can't find the correct ink for it i used cl211&amp;pg510 but not work any one help to fix my problem, the service tool not worked v1050????...


You are actually using a wrong type of cartridge for mx 328.

The right ones are PG-810, CL-811 (PG-810XL, CL-811 Optional)
These are the types of black and color cartridge type for canon pixma mx328.

If you still have the original cartridge that comes with your printer when you purchased it, you can still use it by refilling it with commercial ink that you can purchase from an ink refilling store.
Of course errors will appear on your printer when you do that.....but there is also a way to fix that by resetting the ink cartridge.

Use the old cartridge... then PRESS and HOLD the STOP/RESET button and wait untill it self restart.
When its done you can print again.

Hope this help you.
