Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. I posted to your case by mistake, owing to a system bug. I apologize, and have Opted Out again, opening the case to other Experts again.

Hi Alan. 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."

Can you tell me how old is your printer?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Hi, no more than two years old. It's been working pretty well till this happened. I have a PC engineer living nearby so can call him in now that we know what the problem is. Thanks.

Hi Alan, How did things turn out. Do you require any further assistance.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thanks; I cleaned out the ink tray and printer is working but still issuing the warning. I'm looking at an eventual replacement but it's working well enough so it's not urgent. Prices are quite low at the moment so it won't be a big issue but I may have some cartridges going to waste. Thanks again.
