My Pixma iP1200 is reading ink absorber is full - can I fix this myaself? How do I empty it?


This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

My Canon Pixma MP450 keeps reading ink absorber full. What does that mean?


Like peeling potatoes or oranges or apples, and throwing the peel into a garbage-bin, eventually the bin will get full, and you'll have to empty the bin, before you can do more peeling.

Similarly, when printing, some INK is "wasted", and ends up in a small bin, with an ABSORBER pad (like a baby diaper) in the bin.

So, your printer's bin has become full, and a qualified printer technician can properly empty the bin.

Tank absorber full and lights blinking


The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Note
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.

Waste ink absorber


You'll always find the wast ink absorber under the printer head after printer head prints and rest, there is a rubber type clip which cleans the head and the ink drips down on the cushion absorber. Disassemble the printer and remove the cushion than dip in the bucket of water until ink dissolves out of the cushion and wash under running tap until clean then dry and finish, put back the item and assemble the printer.

Canon Printer Problems


Open the printer, locate the absorber, wash it, then centrifugate to get it dry, install it again and reset the printer.
The absorber is like a sponge filled with ink when it's used.
