I found this at the Canon website. www.canon.com
I also have a Canon Pixma, seems my turn is up and coming too.
Ink Absorber Replacement Options 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.
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.

Testimonial: "The cost to let this repair: 100-150 Euro for a five years old printer. I like the device but that's too expensive."

SOURCE: Ink waste absorber is full. Canon IP2000. How do I repair it?

Well, at some point you will need to either replace or wash the absorber pads in the printer - but you can reset the warning as follows:

1) Turn the printer off
2) Press and hold the <resume>button
3) Press and hold the <power> button
4) While holding down <power> release <resume>
5) With the power button still held down, press <resume> twice more
6) Release the power button
7) Press and release the <resume> button 4 times
8) Press and release the <power> button twice

At this point, the printer should come back online with the waste ink warning reset

Personally, I would only do this once before actually changing the ink absorber pad...

Hi there
You can try to reset the cartages this may do it Please call back let us know if it worked for you, PLEASE.

But some time when you get the chance do clean the waste tank out.
 

  1. Start with printer off

  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click "Power" button. Green led should be on

  3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.

  4. Without releasing the Power Button, click "Resume" button for two times and release Both Buttons.

  5. Click "Resume" for four times then soon click "Power" button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).

  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

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.

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.

My Canon PIXMA iP4000 stopped working with the following messages; (1) error no. 5200 a problem has occured with the printer mechanism (2) cannot print properly because of print head overheating (3)...


first of all the error message is correct when it said that the print head is overheating, this may be cause or triggered by a full waste ink.

will be able to see the steps on how to do it when upi download the Service Manual for your printer.

The waste ink disposal is almost full and it won't print


The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press [OK] to continue but early replacement recommended. <See manual>
WASTE INK NEAR FULL The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning, for example. This error message indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon1.gif 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 waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be performed until the Waste ink tank is replaced.
