Canon pixma printer mp280 !!error code p08 tried suggested answers, take off electricity, when on again hold on button ect. need help ! thanks chris

The standard info on this code is:
5200/P08 - Orange and green light blinking 8 times Description: A service error has occurred. Resolution: 1. Turn off the printer. 2. Disconnect the power cable. 3. Open the printer cover. 4. Check for any orange protective tape or white polystyrene and remove if necessary. 5. Check that there are no foreign objects in the printer (such as a paper clip) and remove if necessary. 6. Close the cover. 7. Reconnect and turn on. If the above solution has not resolved your error, please contact your nearest Canon authorised service facility using the link at the top of the page.
That said, it is often a generic response meaning the machine has a problem but doesn't know what.
In the first instance check inside the machine at both ends of the carriage bar - look for a soggy black mass of crumpled up paper and remove if found. If there is nothing to find, it is possible that there is a printhead fault although typically this gives a P05 error. Try swapping out the cartridges with an old used one. Change one at a time to identify if one or both are faulty. If that fails, it is probably worth replacing the machine as it is relatively aged and new equivalent versions are really cheap.

Canon printer ink absorber full

Hello, The absorber is triggered by printer count, not a moisture meter, so chances are that it is not really full. I have never cleaned or replaced my mp470 pad and have not had a problem. To by-pass the message try thie following. It works fine on my mp470 and may work on your mp280.
Waste ink full reset

These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:

1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)

6) Power off then back on and test.

Light under letter b

This will be in relation to the ink levels in the black cartridge. If the light is orange it will be low if not empty. I would suggest checking the ink status on your computer.
To do so:-Open control Panel-Devices and printers-Right click on the printer-Select maintenance -select check print status

2003 beetle a orange symbol came up on the dash and has a lighting bolt going into a shape like an engine,wont go away what dose this mean thanks

That light means that there is a trouble code currently on your cars computer or (OBD) On Board Diagnostic system . If you go to Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts, they will scan it for free, and erase it if its something simple. IF its something important, they should be able to give you SOME insight, but I would post back here with the trouble code number for better assistance. Thanks.

The second light from the left in the lower left hand corner of my Vostro 1510 is flashing. It looks like it might mean the battery is charging - ie it has a lightening -like symbol in the middle of the...

A flashing orange battery charging light is a failry universal symbol that means the battery is detected, but NOT charging. Usually, this means the battery has gone bad. In some cases, a slow orange flash means bad, a fast flash means very very low charge (or vice versa)

For your laptop in particular, go here for official illustrated documentation on the battery lights and meanings :
