I have a Canon MX300 Printer. When I want to print from computer it is showing Ink Absorber is full. Please advise what I need to do?
Thank you
Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this.
There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure.
How old is the machine? Does it say full or almost full?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Canon Pixma MX300 Printer purchased January 2008. It says Ink Absorber is almost full.

Start with the machine turned off.
Hold down the stop/reset button and press the power button, hold down both.

The power light should turn green.
While still holding the ON/OFF button, release the Stop/Reset button.

While holding the ON/OFF button, press the Stop/Reset button 2 times, and then release both the ON/OFF and Stop/Reset buttons.
When the Power LED lights in green (and "ServiceMode Idle" is displayed on the LCD), press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.

If this did not work, please come back and let me know what happened when you tried it by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.
