Please double check now for me and make sure it says almost and does not just say full.

The message on the printer screen is 'The absorber is almost full'

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.
Ok good because if it says just full you would need to replace the absorber.
Hopefully you will not need to now, Switch off the printer

Push and hold the "Resume" button
Push and hold the "Power" button

Hold both buttons for about five seconds
Let go of the "Resume" button

Press the "Resume" button twice
Let go of the "Power" button

When the green LED stops blinking and lights continuously the printer is in service mode.
Press the "Resume" button four times.

Press the "Power" button.
Now restart the printer and see if the error is still there.
