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).

My Xerox 8400 is printing the wrong colors. Where it's red, it's printing a brown shade and where it should be grey, it's printing green. My logo is grey and red and it's printing all grey, but not the...


Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).

If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.

This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour.
Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properly and is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that your printhead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

Dell 2135 full memory error message cannot print PDF files.


All three replies are incredibly stupid, but especially Frank's. The issue is simply that you're trying to print something that has too much complexity in it for the printer's pre-installed memory to store the final rendering of before printing. The way a laser printer works, unlike an ink jet, it has to take the entire page to be printed and render the final output in memory before the page can be fed through since it doesn't go line by line. If you're trying to print something that has a very complex page in it, such as a full 8x10 photo, the base amount of memory may not be enough. Dell sells a 256MB add-on memory chip you can put in the printer to get around this. Unfortunately the only other way around the issue would be to reduce the complexity of the page; perhaps try printing the PDF scaled down to 70% so the printed output is a lot smaller but also takes up less of the page, meaning the printer may be more likely to be able to fit the page into the existing memory.

My epson px700w will print full 3 pages out of 4 and the fourth one will be half a print. also when i print a disc it will only print 2 thirds of the way down.


I'm sorry I have no answer but I also have the same printer with exactly the same problem. I have tried new cartridges. The same problem occurs with b+w printing and colour. I've tried both wireless and usb connection. It will print a single 4x6 colour print but will NOT finish a 5x7 print. It will print 3 pages of document but will not complete 4 pages consecutively. If you ask it to print 1 page and send the message 4 times through the print dialogue it will print that. Very frustrating. Have you tried epson support site. I have found that their website won't respond when I input the model number.

All toner cardridges are at least 1/2 full but


in the printer menu, scroll to Special Pages and print a Config page, Menu Map and also the Test Pages. If these appear to print colour properly the problem may be in the driver. Check the quality tab in the preferences is not set to B/W. If the problem still appears to be with the printer after printing the internal pages then recheck after restarting the printer.

The effecds like 'banding' very often this happens when the ink is running low.

When you say 'full color' do you mean at the 'best' [i.e. most ink used] setting or the you are printing the image on a full sheet of paper?

How do your images appear when you print small, say wallet sized, single image only on the page? draft mode? Gray scale?
