SOURCE: ink absorber full

I disagree with the advice at printerhelp.me.uk. It is not simple to clean out the ink absorber, but it is certainly possible. First, disassemble the printer, 3fb11e6.jpg then remove and squeeze out the pads of the approx 60 ml (1/4 cup) of condensed ink therein, then rinse them out with water and allow them to dry. Later, reassemble printer and perform a reset as per other articles on this site and others, or use downloadable resetting tool.

As others have pointed out, Canon and other companies are doing a service to us through the error message. If we don't clean the pads, eventually the ink would overflow and leak onto our desks. However, that would probably require 150% of the actual time or ink flow that they have used to activate the alarm.

There are some links on how to clean it yourself or to bypass the alarms on this site. Just do a search for ink absorber and you should find them. I wouldn't try this unless you are mechanically inclined.

How to solve waster ink absorber full problem in canon ip3300


You need to replace the waste ink absorber and then reset the counter. Generally when these errors occur the waste ink absorber needs replacing, if not your images will start to degrade in quality and you will start to see ink splays / splodges appearing as well as random spots and ink patches. In the mean time press RESUME /CANCEL to continue printing.
