My ink absorber is full on mx310


When the cartridges are parked, there is a pad that absorbs ink when the nozzles self-clean. After a while it gets full. Put the printer in the change ink mode to move the cartridges away from their parked position. If there is a plastic cover over the absorber, remove it. Then take a straight pin and pull the absorber pad out. Wash out the excessive ink and let it dry before reinstalling.

INK ABSORBER FULL


Your waste ink absorber is FULL. So you need to replace your waste ink absorber to the new one.
This problem can not be solved by the user. You must take or send it to a service centre, where a technician will remove the old ink absorber, clean up any internal ink mess and enter a reset code to clear the "ink absorber full" condition.

Ink absorber is almost full problem is for cannon 1800


Hope you find this information helpful. The printer has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used during Print Head Cleaning, for example. Eight flashes indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.Before the ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative. (You will need to replace a particular part of the printer.) Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be performed until the ink absorber is replaced

Well the error message states that the mx310 ink bucket absorber is full and i cannot print\copy...


This is a reoccuring problem with cannon printers:

The print heads inside your Canon printer can become clogged and dirty over time, both from dried ink and dust particles. Each Canon printer includes a self-cleaning utility that automatically brushes off excess ink. While the feature keeps your printer running smoothly, it also fills up the foam ink absorber inside the printer. When the absorber is full, your printer displays an error message and won't print. To fix the issue, you need to clean out the absorber and reset the printer's ink absorber code.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Gloves
  • Bowl
  • Soap
  • Paper towel
  1. 1

    Grab the plastic lid at the middle of the Canon printer and lift upward so the printer's internal compartment is visible. Wait five seconds for the ink carriage to slide over from the right side of the printer.

  2. 2

    Locate the square rubber frame at the far right end of the printer that houses the ink absorber. Grip the frame and pull it slightly toward you until it detaches from the printer. Pull the frame to the left and lift it out of the printer. Unplug the printer's power cable.

  3. 3

    Pull the two foam ink absorber segments out of the rubber frame. Place all three pieces in a bowl filled with warm water and soap. Gently scrub each piece to release the absorbed ink.

  4. 4

    Dry off the two foam ink absorber segments and the rubber frame. Set them on a paper towel and wait for each component to completely dry. Slide the foam ink absorber segments back into the rubber frame.

  5. 5

    Position the rubber frame back inside the right side of the printer. Press the frame onto its seat until it locks into place. Push closed the plastic lid.

  6. 6

    Hold down the power button on the printer's control panel as you plug in the power cable. Release the power button and wait five seconds. Tap the power button again to reset the printer's ink absorber code.

What is the ink absorber. a message keeps coming up to say it needs emmptying


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 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.
If you feel your product might require service, Canon has excellent service options and we are eager to provide any assistance you may need. Click the link below to locate an authorized service facility and obtain further instructions.

How to take apart Cannon PIXMA iP3000 to clean the waste absorber


You need to replace the ink absorber kit and to completely disassemble the printer to replace the absorber. Attempting to clean the ink absorber is not recommended. Self servicing the absorber can be a very messy operation. I would check with a Canon repair center to see what the cost to have the servicing done by a trained technician. In some cases, it is cheaper to replace the printer.

My Canon Pixma MP780 is saying "waste ink absorber is near full"


Under the place where the inks park is a tray full of asorbent pads. It was the most awful thing to get to in my Pixma ip 2000. If you have a day to spare, and a work table, and some long needle nose pliers or maybe hemostats, and the usual tools, you can take the machine apart to get at it. Note which pads (and parts) go where, everything has to go back where it came from. The pads will rinse out with water, lots of it.

I860 used ink tank full


The Canon website states that the "ink absorber" needs replacement. The printer will not function when the absorber is "full" They discourage self-servicing the absorber, as "replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure," and lists authorized service locations based on zip or address. One authorized shop quoted $59 labor plus parts to replace. Almost better to buy a new printer.
