SOURCE: Waste ink absorber on canon iP 1600

I tried a few times... I have done this alot to many different canon printers. This is what worked for me.

1. Unplug AC (and usb just for good measure)
2. Hold Start while plugging in...
3. While still holding Start press Resume twice.
4. This then allows for Removal of Ink Cartridges(if you are past the limit)... a very important step apparently.
5. Now repeat Step 1... Step 2
6. Now press the Resume 4 times (only blinks for 1st two presses !)
7. Should be ready...

Good luck. I was very happy when this worked for me.

How can I rectify canon mp210 printer ink absorber full

Where are the "ink absorbers"?


Ink Absorber Full
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 MP210 printer [ USB001 ] said the Ink absorber is Full contact the service center. Guess what, the service center just gave information. I need to know if will be able to fix or will...


There are two possible ways to remove the error from your printer. First is to actually clean the absorber pads that are full of waste ink. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.
Clean the two absorber pads. There are actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the
ink cartridges when the carrier is in the home position.
Accessing the pads and remove them for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezers and extra cloth for some ink spillage. Using the tweezers, lift up the pads sitting on the rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing them under running water. Use warm water to remove the ink from the pads. Dry the pads and reinstall them. Same procedure if you are installing new pads.

However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error or E-27.

How to tell if absorber is really full on MP210


These are the solutions from Canon:

1. Load paper correctly then press black or color button (MP210)
2. Press on/off switch to reset the multifunction device
3. Remove Packing Material MP210 (new printers)
4. Reset ink cartridge MP210
5. The MP210 may require repair

The ink absorber is generally a pad in the bottom of the printer and after a number of passes printing, the counter indicates it is "full", however it can likely be reset and used for a period of time even when "full". The worst that will possibly happen is ink may leak out of the bottom of the printer when it will no longer absorb ink. If you are a bit technical and able to remove the pad, the pad can be washed in warm soapy water, even add a bit of bleach to get it white again works, and reused after the counter (printer) is reset.I am not familiar with that particular model, but I have washed and reused the ink pads on other models of Canon with no problem as well as Epson and HP.
