    It says to contact service center for replacement of waste ink absorber. What service center? I couldn't find a phone number or address anywhere in the manual. If waste ink absorber must be replaced, I have no idea where to find the replacement.

The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that this absorber is nearly full.

Press the <RESUME/CANCEL> button on the printer to clear the error, so you can continue the print job. The printer will need to be serviced as soon as possible.

SOURCE: When I try to print, I can't; it says "The waste ink absorber is full. Contact the service center for the replacement of the waste ink absorber."

This error means that the waste ink pads have filled up to the point where the printer believes the ink will overflow and leak or cause damage to the printer.

To give you a quick primer... Every time you run a cleaning routine or printer borderless photos the printer will dump a small amount of ink into a set of highly absorbent pads that live in the base of the printer.

These pads can only accept so much ink before they become full but experience has shown that you could reset the EEPROM waste counter if you locate the appropriate codes for your printer.

I'd recommend asking on nifty-stuff.com in the forums and see if someone can provide the information and code you need.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Waste ink absorber full - contact service center for replacement

STEP 1:
- Disconnect printer from AC power

STEP 2:
- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and
connect printer to AC power

This simple power off procedure worked on my IP1500!

Cleaning the absorber was also easy. Power up with the cover open until the head moves to the left side then disconnect the power cord so the head is now positioned away from the pads.
The two pads can be lifted up easily with a pair of sharp tweezers then rinsed in running water. They will become white again and can be blotted with paper napkins then air dried in a warm location (I used an industrial oven set to 40°C). The wells in the rubber holder can be cleaned with cotton swabs before returning the two pads (left side first, then press down the right side).

My canon printer 1p 1000 says the waste ink absorber is full contact service center


hi

you need to replace the absorber waste container. But to ensure you can work around this, do this first. Remove the square rubber at the end of the right side of your printer. Use cotton cloth absorb the waste ink. Clean and wipe the ink around area and place the absorber back into the tray.
Finally clean your print head by using dry cotton swab. If this deosnt work, try this: if it doesnt solve the issue, you must replace absorber waste ink tank .

  • You can manually override it, but I recommend getting it replaced.

    Reset waste ink tank counter CANON PIXMA iP 1000
    Disconnect printer from AC power
    Press and HOLD the POWER button, and connect printer to AC power
    release the the POWER button
    Press the POWER button again

What is e 27 and e 8??


Those two are error codes, and they mean the following:

E8 - The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press the OK button to clear the error.
Printing can be done until the waste ink absorber becomes full. If the waste ink absorber becomes full, please contact your local Service Center for replacement of the absorber and machine maintenance.
The waste ink absorber is a part inside the machine, which absorbs ink used in the cleaning operations, etc.

E27 - Manual does not specify what this means, but tells you what you should do: Turn the machine off, and remove the power plug from the outlet. About ten minutes later, plug it in again, and turn the machine on. If the problem is not resolved, the machine may require servicing. Please contact your local Service Center.
You can read more about the error codes on Canon website.

"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?


Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.

Message" waste ink absorber"


There is an absorbent sponge in the bottom of your waste ink container to help contain the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans the print head nozzles. That sponge is probably full and has triggered a "most informative" error message!

Check your user's manual about the procedure for changing the absorber and where to buy new ones.

Its appear " The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center."


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.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

Printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center


This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.
