SOURCE: waste ink absorber is full

Guess you might have sorted this by now, but...

Hold down the power button.

Pull out the mains lead.

Plug it back in again still holding down the button.

Now release the button and turn it on again.

You can now print.

You have to do this everytime you turn it on.

Full waste tank canon i250


Hi Eli,

Canon i250 & i250 waste ink tank counter reset. by BSF (12/10/04 10:13 PM) +1 + / -

1. Disconnect printer from AC power (take out AC cord or power off your power strip). Disconnect USB PC cable from
printer.
2. Press and HOLD the POWER button (untill step 7).
3. Reconnect power cord (turn on power) to the printer.
4. The indicator should be green.
5. Press and release the RESUME button , the indicator should be orange.
6. Press and release the RESUME button again, the indicator should be green.
7. NOW Release POWER buttons.
8. NOW Connect the printer to PC (USB cable).
9. NOW...I opened "Printers" and saw that a "copy" of my printer (i250 or i350) had been made. Make that COPY your default printer and all should work...It did for me.

I must say...I went into the "GUTS" of the beast and cleaned out the PADS (they are actually vacuum pads that the INK is sucked through during a HEAD cleaning) a very messy undertaking.




Regards,

Sean

Message about ink asorber full keeps appearing


When the printer is not being used, the print-heads slide to their "resting" position,
in order to keep the ink-jets moist, i.e., to NOT dry-out.

Some ink is absorbed into that INK-ABSORBER.

Now, after a few years of usage, that ink-absorber is "full".

Like taking-out the garbage from your kitchen waste-basket when it gets full, and replacing the full waste-basket with an empty waste-basket, it's time to get your printer serviced -- replace the "full" ink-absorber with an "empty" ink-absorber.

Note that CANON printers do not actually "measure" the fullness -- they electronically estimate the fullness, given information about how much you print, and how often you print, and the "density" of the pages that you do print (text is much less dense than colour-photos).

Waste ink absorber is. full. How do I empty it?


The waste ink absorber can sometimes be removed and cleaned out and put back into place. Although it is not always easy to get at. Usually once this happens it is time for a new printer. You can also contact Canon and see if they have a replacement part for this.

I have been getting the following message from my Canon iP90 portable printer: ''Waste Ink absorber is full'' What do I do to fix the problem? Harvey


If you peel apples, the apple-peel becomes "waste", and you put the waste into a bin. When the bin is full, you have to do something, i.e., empty the bin into a composter, or send the bin to the land-fill, or you get another bin.

Similarly, when your printer "wastes" ink, the ink is retained inside the printer, until the waste-absorber unit becomes full.

Take the printer to a qualified technician, to either "empty" the bin, or to "replace" the bin.

Tank absorber full and lights blinking


The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Note
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.

Waste full


The waste ink absorber is a piece of sponge that (as its name implies) absorbs waste ink. On many Canon printers it an be removed if you are fairly dextrous. Wash it out and dry it and then refit. It may well be a fiddle but it will go back in.
The difficult bit is resetting the printer so that it knows the absorber is empty.
Do a google on resetting the waste ink warning for your particular printer (it's not the same for every Canon). It's done with various combinations of button pressing and light sequences and generally works first time (though one of mine took 4 or 5 goes before it actually reset).

Indicates waste ink absorber is almost full on cannon i9900 print


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads cannot be emptied, only replaced.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.
