The "waste ink absorber" in these models is just a length of cotton inside the printer that absorbs the waste ink. Usually they are rinsed and dried and replaced, and the printer is reset. I do not know of anywhere to get new ones

The waste ink absorber error (5B00 error code accompanied by 7 blinks/beeps) basically says your waste ink reservoir is full. The logic assembly has a counter that works to approximate how much ink has been used while purging the ink nozzles. This error stops the machine cold! The good news is that the "counter" can be reset very easily from the control panel. Also good news is that the part QY5-0153 is about $6 and $6 ground ship for a $12 fix! Now for the bad news...the waste ink absorber kit is buried in the printer and not easily accessed. Unless you are very adventurous and willing to spend a few hours pulling it apart to clean, lubricate, repair and then reset the logic board (you can do all the physical repair work but if the logic board "waste ink amount" counters aren't reset then the printer still won't work) then this is work best left to a service center. I found a local service center willing to do the work for $85. Frankly, my time is worth more than the $$ he wants...besides, he has to eat too! :)

Message" waste ink absorber"


There is an absorbent sponge in the bottom of your waste ink container to help contain the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans the print head nozzles. That sponge is probably full and has triggered a "most informative" error message!

Check your user's manual about the procedure for changing the absorber and where to buy new ones.

How do I find the waste ink absorber


The waste ink absorber is usually in the right side of the printer where the cartridges reside when the computer is off. To find the waste ink absorber you need to lift the cover of the printer remove the screws or some printer unlock the clip to remove the cover. After you remove the cover in the right side of the printer. The waste ink absorber is in the bottom of the printer head. Some printer you need first to remove the head before you can remove the waste ink absorber. The waste ink absorber is like a foam that we using in the dish washing you can wash and dry also. But before you can remove the waste ink absorber try first to solve the problem by using some guide how to reset the waste ink absorber problem. If you encounter this search in the internet about how to reset the waste ink absorber.

Waste absorber is full ip5000 and also ip200


Beware that doing the below may cause other issues with your printer - your waste absorber can overflow and spill ink into your printer causing more issues. It is best to replace this component via an authorised repair center or at least try and clean it out.

Give this a go, with the printer off, press and hold the resume/cancel/stop button, now press and hold the power button.
While holding the power button, release the resume/cancel/stop button.
While still holding the power button, press the resume/cancel/stop button 2 times and then release both buttons.
The power light should be on. Press the resume/cancel/stop button 4 times and then press the power button.

This should reset your Waste Absorber count, at least it does on my MP830 and also Pixma 4200.
