Hi Francis. Welcome to justanswer.
Try resetting the waste ink absorber.

Are you facing any problem ?
What happens when you turn off and then turn on the printer. To turn off, press the power button and then wait for a minute until the green light goes off.
Keep updating me with the status of the issue so that I can help you better.
And what do you see on the LCD screen? The Ink Absorber Full error is displayed or not?
So what error are you exactly getting? Can you count the number of green light flashes if there are any?
Turn it on. Give a print command. If it does not print and you see 10 flashes,then press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Does the paper ejects?
Can you check the status on Canon IJ Status monitor on your computer. Cancel all the prints in the queue if there are any.
And the green light still blinking ten times?
What about the orange LED? If it is not printing, press Resume/cancel.
Is the orange led blinking? If yes, then how many times?
Most probably the ink absorber has become full. When the ink absorber becomes full, no further printing can be performed unless the applicable ink absorber is replaced.
Is your printer still under warranty?
Go to Canon IJ Printer driver, Under Maintenance Tab, you will see power off the printer. Select it. Then turn it ON and check if you get any of the prints that you previously commanded.
The problem is with the ink absorber. This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full and stops printing. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. So if the printer is under warranty, it is advisable otherwise buying a new one would be the best option. You can buy other canon printers as most of the canon printers have same cartridges.
