Canon Service representative.

See "Replacing a FINE Cartridge" on page 33.
The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used during Print
Head Cleaning, for example.
This error code indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the Black or Color button to cancel the error so you can continue
However, because printing is disabled once the ink absorber becomes
completely full and until the ink absorber is replaced, you are
recommended to contact your Canon service representative as early as
possible. (You will need to replace a particular part of the machine.)
A communication time out occurs if an operation takes too long or if it takes
too much time to send data. This may cancel printing. In such cases,
disconnect and reconnect the USB cable.
When printing from a PictBridge compliant device, depending on the model
or brand of your device, you may have to select a PictBridge compliant
print mode on the device before connecting it to the machine. You may also
have to turn on your device or select Play mode manually after connecting
the device to the machine. Perform necessary operations before
connecting your device referring to its instruction manual.
If the error is still not resolved, check if you can print another photograph.
