"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?


Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.

How do I empty Waste Ink Absorber?>


Please check the following steps:

Step 1: Open your printer.
Step 2: Wear gloves to protect your hands from Ink.
Step 3: Locate the Waste Ink Pads on the inside of your printer. They are on the right hand side and are quite small.
Step 4: You can remove the pads and the holder with a gentle pull.
Step 5: Using a tissue, soak up as much ink as possible and clean the area around the waste ink area.
Step 6: There is one more waste holder in the right back bottom of the printer. A kind of sponge. There are few screws and plastic parts to be removed and this sponge needs to be washed, dryed and placed again. Be careful and patient. This is no understatement. On the iP1500 this requires the dismantling of most of the printer. Take a photograph (even with your cell phone) so you can trace back your steps. On the iP1500 the drive motor on the side (Just behind the waste ink pads) has to be removed to get to the main sponge. You also need to take care as you lift the slide/carriage. Below this you find 5 little springs.
Step 7: Carefully replace the holder and the pads. Close printer.
Step 8: Whilst printer is disconnected from the mains power, press and hold the power button and reconnect to ac power.
Step 9: Release the power button.
Step 10: Press the power button again.

**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

Won't print. I get a message that waste ink absorber is full. What do I do?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Open the cover, move the cartridges to the centre, and then press the pad of absorbent paper towel onto the waste ink pads. You can locate the waste ink pads to the right of the cartridges. This will absorb a lot of ink in the pads and that will remove the warning after you reset the printer waste ink tank counter. To reset your Printer please tell me the model number of your Unit so that I can provide you with model specific information.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.



Thanks

My canon mp 150 has a warning ink refill cartridge


After so many prints the printer gives you this warning because it is possible that the waste ink pads (that collect any spilt ink in the bottom of the printer) are full. You have two options. You can either reset the waste ink counter and the printer will run but might get some ink leakage if it has had a lot of use or replace the pad and reset the counter.

A waste ink kit for this printer is Canon part number QY5-0149-000. A quick search on the will get you the part for about £5. Too fit it you will need to take the printer apart but that is easy with a service manual from here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4589462-canon-pixma-mp150-printer-service-manual The manual will also tell you how to reset the waste counter.

Hope that helps.
