Hi Hans. Welcome to justanswer.
Canon printers use small, spongy pads to absorb excess ink that accumulates while printing and cleaning the print heads. When these pads are saturated, the printer will notify you with an error message such as "Ink Absorber Full."
But this usually happens after 2-3 years of use. You said that you acquired this printer few months ago. So is it still under one year warranty?
Reply so that I can guide you further
