Canon pixma mp130" waste


As a short term fix you can reset the counter.

If you reset the waste ink counter without replacing ink absorber, this means that you are may be about to overload ink absorber. If you only do this one time, it may be tolerable. Be careful if you do this more than one time, because it can flood your printer and harm other part.


To reset the ink absorber counter on the MP130

1. Turn on the printer,2. Press the MENU key, and the SCAN, COPY and SCAN again - entered the service mode

3. Select NVRAM ACCESS, pressr OK

4. Select SET ABS-M LEVEL and set value equal to zero

5. Select SET ABS-M LEVEL and set value to zero

6. Turn off the printer POWER button

7. Your printer can now be turned on and is in normal mode


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 carrier move to the center of the printing unit. Unplug the printer so that the carrier will remain centered.
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 standby mode.
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 rubber frame.
6. Insert new ink absorber pads firmly into the rubber frame. Replace the rubber frame in its original position and close the printer.
7. 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.
8. 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.
Let me know if you have any other problems or questions. Thanks.

Mp130 waste ink absorber almost full. how to fix?


There are two possible ways to remove the error from your printer. First is to actually clean the absorber pads that are full of waste ink. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.

Clean the two absorber pads
. Its is actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when it is in home base position.
How to access the pads and remove it for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base.. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezer and extra cloth for some ink spill. Using the tweezer, lift up the pads sitting on a rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing it under a running water. Warm water will be nice to remove the ink from the pads. After this, you can now return the pads. However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error or E-27.

Use a reset procedure to clear the error in your printer
and start printing again
1. Turn on the printer
2. Press the MENU key
3.
Press SCAN button
4.
Press the COPY button
5. Press the SCAN button then wait until it enters the service mode.
6.
Select NVRAM ACCESS further OK
7.
Select SET ABS-M LEVEL and set value equal to zero
8.
Select SET ABS-R LEVEL (if any) and is set to zero.
9.
Turn off the printer
Do this as many times if the first attempt didn't work until it fully reset.

Waste ink absorber is full and need to be replace unable to print


The waste ink absorber is a pair of pads at the bottom of the printer paper path (one on each side). You can order replacement pads from a service center. Alternatively, you can resuse them. First, you need to pull the old pads (have plenty of paper towels handy). This can take nearly disassembling the printer. Then rinse the pads with running water until they are clean and then let them dry, if you want to reuse them. Once dry, reinsert them and reassemble the printer.

Next you need to reset the counter for the waste ink absorber. With the printer plugged in but off. Press and hold the Stop/Reset button then press the power button. Once the Power light is lit, press the Stop/Reset button twice while holding the Power button. Release the buttons in any order and the printer is in a service mode. With the lights Green, press and release the Stop/Reset button four times (the light will go orange and green alternately and will be green at this command). Set the counter to zero. Press the Power button to save the setting. Then turn on the printer normally.

Do not reset the counter until the waste ink absorber is cleaned/replaced, you will get ink everywhere.

Please note that the printer was designed to fail about the same time that the waste ink absorber counter hits the point that locks the unit. (ie the waste absorber doesn't get full while the unit is under warranty), the printer may have additional failures soon.

I hope this helps.

The waste ink disposal is almost full and it won't print


The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press [OK] to continue but early replacement recommended. <See manual>
WASTE INK NEAR FULL The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning, for example. This error message indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon1.gif service representative. (You will need to replace a particular part of the printer.) Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be performed until the Waste ink tank is replaced.
