The ink absorber is almost full -- MX892

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your printer? How old is it?

Canon MX892 inkjet printer

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

About a month. I just override it and keep going. It still prints fine. I have no idea what led up to the beginning of the warning message.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I assume the printer will stop printing properly once the ink absorber is full. How do I replace the ink absorber, or empty it, or in some other way keep the printer working well?

Are you there? Is this too busy a time for you?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Please cancel any contract I may have inadvertently signed up for. I don't seem to be connected to anyone who is trying to help me and answer by questions -- very unsatisfactory relationship -- good night!
