EWrror message when printing : 'waste ink absorber full'. What is this?
Canon website utterly useless, manual CD won't run on Vista. What the hell is a waste ink absorber? Why won't my printer print?

Some padding in the bottom of the case for soaking up excess ink. The i250/350 is easy to pop open, the pads can be washed through and put back when dry.

Its probably a small sponge which sits below the print head and absorbs excess ink. My MIL has this printer. Will have a look on Friday.
