Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
The waste ink absorber is a little pad that sits under the cartridge's
"home" position and collects any loose ink that may be on the
cartridge. This prevents smudges, so it's a good thing to have. However, it may not even be a problems yet. The error is similar to a "service engine soon light" on a car and as far as I know, only Canon PIXMA printers display an error when a
certain internal counter suggests that the ink absorber may be full.
However, I don't believe Canon makes ink absorbers for this model printer any longer and having it serviced is generally not a good option, since it will likely cost almost as much as the original cost of the printer and is not covered under warranty, since it's considered normal wear and tear and not a defect.
