Most of the time, the best thing to do in this case is to buy a new one, they usually come in packs of two and due to the nature of the ink being so small of particles will help ensure the quality of printing that you have. If you need a link from where to purchase this, please let me know the model number of the canon printer in question.


If you need anything else, please let me know

    The ink absorber will be towards the bottom of the printer

    It's very simple to replace, I would first go and order it and if you still can't figure out how to replace it, just ask once you have the replacement

    if you want more assistance please post your printers .. Canon? Brand and model.

  • Ekse Jun 05, 2008

    Canon can replace the ink absorber, need to know the model to see if we can do it ourselfs.

  • Ekse Jun 06, 2008

    Open cover (as if replacing ink cartridge).

    Locate waste ink pads, they are far right under cartridge slider.


    Pry up waste ink pads (inky, might want to wear gloves).


    Rinse pads in sink or with alcohol, dry.


    Replace pads. Make sure pads are fully seated.







    When they have been cleaned you have to reset the counters







    Press Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan to enter service menu.

    Use arrow keys to scroll to “Service menu counter access”.
    Press OK.

    Use arrow keys to scroll to “ABS-M DOT COUNT”
    Press Copy.

    Use arrow keys to reset count to zero.
    Press OK.
    Press Stop/Reset.





    Done

SOURCE: how to reset waste ink absorber full ip3300 warning?

I have the same problem, but Jet Tec waste inks. When I first replaced black (pgi 5bk)-don't forget to place the small chip from the original cartridge to replacement; it worked fine. But now, it has a lot of problems because this **** printer from canon only want original inks (and the original are tooooooooo expensive). I'll never bought anything else from canon.

SOURCE: Ink wast absorber almost full

Hi there
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

I have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need.
with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink coming out your printer.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Absorber is full


Hi ....

This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the <Resume> button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

Please vote if this helps .... Cheers :)
