There are two possible ways to remove the error from your printer. First is to actually clean the absorber pads that are full of waste ink. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.

Clean the two absorber pads. Its is actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when it is in home base position.

How to access the pads and remove it for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base.. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezer and extra cloth for some ink spill. Using the tweezer, lift up the pads sitting on a rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing it under a running water. Warm water will be nice to remove the ink from the pads. After this, you can now return the pads. However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error or E-27.

Use a reset procedure to clear the error in your printer and start printing again.
1. Turn off the printer
2. Press and Hold both the Power and Reset button for 10 sec
3. While Holding the Power button, release the Reset button
4. Press the Reset button twice then release the Power button
5. Wait until the printer display " 0 " (or RESTART) on the led screen
7. Press Reset button 4x
8. Press Power button 3x and wait for printer to power off
9. Press the Power to turn on the printer

Do this as many times if the first attempt didn't work until it fully reset.

Ink absorber full brothers


(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

The ink absorber is full


So you probably have a Canon Pixma printer with an error code E27 = "Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full".
These two tutorial videos will teach you:

1. How to clean the MAIN ink absorbers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVpjqBr7KjU&feature=fvwrel

But there's a second ink absorber - the PLATEN one - which he does not talk about. The PLATEN is in the black plastic directly underneath the printhead as it slides back and forth. CLEAN THE PLATEN TOO before following the Part 2 video to reset both the MAIN and PLATEN ink absorbers in your software. And don't repeat his mistake when putting the printer back together - the springs he points to at 4:30 WILL fall out!

2. How to reset your printer's internal firmware to remove error alert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IrBdw7el2E&feature=fvwrel


P.S. Of course it is much easier to bring it to ther printer service (even better if your warranty service can do it for free, if the full ink absorbers error was not caused by too intensive printing, i.e. not your fault).

Error 46,the ink absorber pad is full.


first, try to establish if this really is full absorbent pad, remove power cable from the back, wait 20sec, press menu/set key, insert power mains - in most brother printer/faxes this will display machine error code. if this is code 46, you are on the money, your absorbent pad is full (not necessarily, only counter is showing it as such in most cases).

we will asssume that counter is showing full and therefore reset it again to zero:

1. after machine code is displayed, key in "80",
2. go down with arrow key till you find "purge counter"
3. type "2783" this should set counter to "0"
4. press "stop/exit"
5. press "9" twice
6. remove cartridges from craddle
7. remove power cord
8. insert power cord back
9. switch on printer
10. insert cartridges back

if that do not work, then maybe really you need to replace absorbent sponge... it is done under warranty and if not technician in service centre.

if you want to do it yourself, remove cartridges, remove fron cover and on the right hand you will have "offending" sponge. either clean it (absorbent, lint free tissue is fine to remove excess first, then few drop of water and repeat draining process with tissue several time, at least till "cake" from the top is removed. best of course will be to replace the sponge with new one.

after that you still need to reset counter. in another way - follow steps...

The waste ink tank is near full


Hi
I found this in a forum you can try it see if it work for you.

To reset waste tank full error in MP730.

1. Hit the "menu": Key
2. Hit "Copy" Key
3. Hit "#" Key
4. Scroll thru the menu headings until you come to "Test Mode" - 12th heading
5. Hit the "3" button- this will bring up Eprom Clear
6. Hit "0" button
7. Hit the "Stop" button



Also I found this.

First Clean and Dry the Print Head:
I used a cotton swab dipped in 70% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol). Do not use too much alcohol.
Then dry the heads, again using dry cotton swab. Be careful not leave any cotton threads on the print heads.
Then I padded dry the spongy Ink Absorbers (one for black ink and the other for color ink) using
Separate cotton swabs for each absorber. Do not displace the absorbers. Or you can replace the ink absorbers at this point if you do not want to pad them dry.

Then Proceed to the Waste Tank Reset procedure below:

To reset waste tank full error in MP730.

1. Press the "menu": Key
2. Press "Copy" Key

4. Scroll thru the menu headings until you come to "Test Mode" - 12th heading or select (-) as a short-
cut to the last setting.

CF-FH3 :WLD-11-02

4b. Press “8” and the display changes to:

***note*** you have to wait until the display changes

Then the display changes to:
8: PRINTER TEST
[2]---[8]

5. Then Press the "3" button and the display shows:

8 – 3 : EEPROM Clear

*** the display scrolls to [0] : INK COUNT
[1] : 2PURGE FLAG

6. Press "0" button – for INK COUNT
7. Press the "Stop" button
8. Press Off then On to set new changes.
9. Printer feeds a blank page after it is turned on again.

This should Reset the printer and remove the WRONG CARTRIDGE error and save you a few dollars.

The waste ink absorber is full


To reset your Canon IP1000 just simply pull out power cord then press-hold power button, while holding power button insert back power cord. You will notice that the power button indicator lights up upon inserting power cord. then you may release power button and start printer. That will solve your "The waste ink absorber is full" message.

Downside is: you may have to do this frequently if your printer looses power. You will understand what i mean.
