My i960 cannon printer stopped working with the message: "The waste ink absorber is full"


When the printer is NOT printing, the print-heads sit above a "waste-bin".
Any "excess" ink drips from the print-heads, and is absorbed into that waste-bin.

After you have printed a large number of pages, that bin is "full", and needs to be emptied, and the page-count for the printer needs to be reset to 'zero' pages.

Take your printer to any qualified computer technician, to get the printer serviced.

Message about ink asorber full keeps appearing


When the printer is not being used, the print-heads slide to their "resting" position,
in order to keep the ink-jets moist, i.e., to NOT dry-out.

Some ink is absorbed into that INK-ABSORBER.

Now, after a few years of usage, that ink-absorber is "full".

Like taking-out the garbage from your kitchen waste-basket when it gets full, and replacing the full waste-basket with an empty waste-basket, it's time to get your printer serviced -- replace the "full" ink-absorber with an "empty" ink-absorber.

Note that CANON printers do not actually "measure" the fullness -- they electronically estimate the fullness, given information about how much you print, and how often you print, and the "density" of the pages that you do print (text is much less dense than colour-photos).

I replaced the clear ink tank on mx7600 and the message "the clear ink is empty" will not go away nor will it print in black. The brand new Canon brand clear ink can be seen on the ink tank itself and in...


Yeah, me too. I fiddled with cycling the power, removing and reinserting the tank, doing maintenance tasks like cleaning the jets, yadda, yadda, no dice. New full Canon tank displays empty. Boo.

I figured "What the heck, I'll try printing anyway" and sent a test page on plain paper. It warned me the tank was empty, then did a bunch of those cartridge moves it likes to do (you hear the carriage moving around cleaning or something). After like 90? seconds of cleaning noises, it figured out that the tank was full, the status went to full, and it printed the page fine.

So my advice is, try printing a page anyway.

My mfc 420 cn receives the print signal but doesnt print anything on the page, just feeds the paper


There may be an error in the printer. Try turning the printer off and turning it back on to do a power cycle on it.

Are you cartridges full? You can get blank pages to print out if you don't have any ink in the cartridges or if the ink is clogged up in the cartridge. If that is the case you may need to buy new cartridges. I buy all my ink and toner supplies from www.lasertekservices.com

They have great customer service and if you give them a call they can help you out with the problem you are having.

Hope this helps :)

The printer does not print when the ink levels say they are ok


Run through the manual to see if you can print a test page . This is by pressing the buttons in a particular sequence. Once thats ok then, connect the printer to a different port in the same computer.
Try reinstalling the drivers. This should help.
If it still doesnt, try the same steps on a different PC, just to isolate the problem

Lexmark X1185


If the ink cartridge is not empty it is probably clogged. The Print nozzles are very sensitive and cleaning attempts can make the situation even worse if carried out wrong. You can try cleaning with dry gas alcohol as it contains no water. Use a piece of leather sham or other non lint material like eyeglass lens cleaner wipes and the dry gas. Wet your cloth and gently hold it on the print nozzles allowing the alcohol to dissolve the dried ink in the nozzles. Do not rub hard or you will ruin the print head. Hold it in place for at least 2 minutes with a generous amount of alcohol in the cloth. Imm
ediately place the cartridge in the printer and perfom the clean nozzle function.
If this does not remedy your problem the print cartridge must be replaced. Hope this helps you out.

Lexmark X1185 feeding not printing


Maybe the cartridges are dry. Try running a test page after running the maintenance nozzle cleaning.
