Hello,

Things you will need.
Needle nose pliers.
Paper towels
97% rubbing alcohol
Plastic gloves.
Flashlight
Disposable waste container, lined with plastic.
Disposable plastic tray about 6x9 or thereabouts.
Plenty of ventilation, outside if need be.

a. With the printer on, open this lid as if to change cartridges.

b. Turn Printer off. Unplug the printer. Unattach the communication cable. You will be moving it to a work area with excellent ventilation, such as outside.

c. At the far right where the the cartridges normally park themselves when not printing you will see a platform with rectangular compartments. When the cartridges park, this platform rises, seals off the nozzle area and captures any leaking ink, which till happens today.

d. Examine the platform with your flashlight and you will see what looks like sponges in the compartments. This material with holes in it, like a sponge, is plastic.Put on your gloves.

e. Place a paper towel folded over on itself underneath this platform as best you can to catch any spilling ink.

f. Use paper towels soaked in alcohol slightly and your needle nose pliers to push the paper towel into each compartment, gently at first, until the majority of ink is removed.

g. This will take quite a long time and plenty of paper towels and patience. So be patient and ready for the long haul. Avoid smoking and the fumes.

h. At some point the sponge material, itself, may become dislodged and loose. When you witness this, go ahead and remove it carefully using your needle nose pliers and place it on some paper towels placed inside your disposable plastic tray.

i When you have one or both, if needed or more sponges removed and in the tray, pour alcohol over these until the ink runs pretty thin. Leave to everything to dry.

i. Use a paper towel damp with alcohol and your pliers to clean out the compartment and its sides as best you can.

j. When you have completed these tasks allow the compartments and sponges to dry.

k. You are ready to reassemble the sponges into the compartments. Do so now.

l. Nearly done; take a towel wet with alcohol and hold it very gently against the bottom of the ink cartridge until ink flows freely onto the paper towel. If its stubborn, knock the cartridge gently but sharply against a hard surface with the alcohol soaked towel held against the nozzle area.

k. Re insert the cartridges now.

l. Return the printer to its working location, attach power, attache the comm cable and with the lid closed apply power.

m. Run your printer through its normal setup routine, deep clean the print heads, run a nozzle check and finally do a print head alignment.

m. Your Printer is now ready to be used again.

Please rate this solution as Fixed instead of Helpful, although as helpful as it is, the point it to return the printer to working order.

Thank you,
Worldvet

In printer canon ip 1800 is showing ink absorber is full cant use the printer


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

DCP j125 Inkjet printer stopped printing showing msg. ink absorber is full. What to do?


well, cut the small piece of black tape (or you can use black permanent marker) and then cover the sensor of the cartridge, once the device will ask you to reinstall the cartridge and new system will detect as a new cartridge

Everytime i print documents, the windows show THE INK ABSORBER IS ALMOST FULL CANCEL PRINTING ..pls help me to fix this problem ..thanks


So you probably have a Canon Pixma printer with an error code E27 = "Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full".
These two tutorial videos will teach you:
1. How to clean the MAIN ink absorbers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVpjqBr7KjU&feature=fvwrel
But there's a second ink absorber - the PLATEN one - which he does not talk about. The PLATEN is in the black plastic directly underneath the printhead as it slides back and forth. CLEAN THE PLATEN TOO before following the Part 2 video to reset both the MAIN and PLATEN ink absorbers in your software. And don't repeat his mistake when putting the printer back together - the springs he points to at 4:30 WILL fall out! 2. How to reset your printer's internal firmware to remove error alert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IrBdw7el2E&feature=fvwrel
P.S. Of course it is much easier to bring it to ther printer service (even better if your warranty service can do it for free, if the full ink absorbers error was not caused by too intensive printing, i.e. not your fault).
