Hi everybody! In the previous post I have told you how to reset waste ink counter for group A. Now I will explain how to fix Waste Ink Absorber Error for printer categorized in Group B (see also ..). One of type of this group is ip1000. Well, here is the procedure.

To reset waste ink counter for group B, perform the following step:
  1. Enter service mode.
  2. Connect USB cable (you may also connect USB cable before entering service mode, no problem).
  3. Run General Tool for each series from your computer; select below procedure which appropriate with your printer model.

For i320/xnu i320

  • Select USB port
  • In destination set: choose 1 for xnu i320, or choose 2 for i320.
  • Exit general tool and run your printer as usual.

For i250 series (255/350/355), ip1000,ip1500

  • Select USB port
  • Mark EEPROM clear check box.
  • Click Test Pattern button, wait until a pattern completely printed.
