Does anyone know a way to clear error E27 (ink absorber full) on Canon
MP190? I have cleaned the ink absorber. Turned the printer off and
on, using various code-clearing procedures online with no success. E27
Below are some steps I have tried with no success.
Thanks in advance.
* None of these below have worked for me.....
Press and hold the "Power" button and reconnect the power cord. When the
printer comes on, release the button. Wait five seconds and push the
"Power" button again. This resets the printer's internal memory and
overrides the "Ink Absorber Full" error code.
If your absorber is full, call Canon at 732-521-7230 to order the
replacement pads for the ink absorber.
If you do not have access to new ink absorber pads, you can extend the
life of your current pads by rinsing them thoroughly and allowing them
to dry before reinstalling them.
To replace the pad:
1 Open the printer as though you were going to install new ink
cartridges, letting the cartridge cradle move to the center of the
printing unit. Unplug the printer so that the cartridges will remain in
2 Locate the waste ink absorbers in their black rubber frame. They will
likely be on the right side of your printer, and will be located
underneath the area where the ink cartridges rest when the printer is in
3 Use a paper napkin or other disposable and absorbent material to soak
up any excess ink that may be in the pads by pressing it down onto the
top of the frame.
4 Pull the rubber frame free from the printer, wearing gloves to keep
your hands clean. Carefully remove the ink absorber pad or pads from the
5 Insert new ink absorber pads firmly into the rubber frame. Replace the
rubber frame in its original position and close the printer.
6 Hold down the power button, then plug the printer back in. Continue
holding the power button down until the printer begins to reset itself
and come online.
7 Wait for the green power light to turn off, then press and release the
power button again. It should blink for two to three seconds, then stay
lit; this will indicate that the printer has been reset and is ready to
print again without errors.
