How do I Turn off my waist ink absorber error message?


You can't. You will need to replace the waste ink tank when it becomes full before it will allow you to print anymore. I had to do that with my Canon at one time too.

There is no way to purchase ink absorber. Because it is already fixed in your computer. But you may fix your ink absorber problem by reset your printer... thanks

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.

Where is the waste ink absorber located and where can I get a replacement


Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the AC poewr.
Lift the lid covering the print-head mechanism.
Look where the ink-cartridges are "docked".
Below that point is the container that holds absorbent material that retains the waste ink.

Take your printer to a qualified technician, for replacement, and to "reset" the printer (to tell it that the new absorber is 0% full).

I get error message 5B00 waste ink absorber full. What should I do?


Hello
Replacing the waste ink absorber is a service procedure which is not documented in the user manual, it is documented in the service manual.

the part needs to be replaced and then the printer needs to be reset, this can be performed with either a button combination or with a service tool, which is only available to service personnel.

it would be best to send this printer to canon for repair.
