Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Message 'waste tank full' what does this mean Waste ink absorber is full - is my message on my Canon MP150. I was told it is cheaper to get a new one than try to fix it. I do not even see where the part is. I am told that it will probably just quit working one day and today I have a major papaer jam under the ink cartridge. This has never happened and I have used it daily for 3 yrs!

Important to understand there is no waste tank and certainly no sensor. There is an area under the vacuum pumps where waste ink collects and is hedged in by walls of foam. The message must be created by a count on the number of times the cartridges have been purged so the key thing is to reset this counter as well as mopping up the ink. Not tried the solution 1 method, mine responded to pressing the color scan button !

Sign showing Waste Ink Absorber is almost full. What should I do?


It means that your well used printer has reached the point that it needs maintenance: your printer waste ink pads and reservoir need to be removed and cleaned/replaced AND the internal counter reset.

It is 'officially' recommneded that you take your printer to Canon prnter service centre but I think that buying a new cheap printer would be a cheaper option!

You an also try to maintain and fix the problem your printer yourself: resetting the counter is 'relatively' simple (by going to the Service menu) BUT YOU MUST clean the waste ink pads and reservoir or RISK A MAJOR INK OVEFLOW DISASTER.

If you want to do it yourself, just Google for 'MP150 Waste ink counter' ....

Hope it helps!

The waste ink absorber is full


To reset your Canon IP1000 just simply pull out power cord then press-hold power button, while holding power button insert back power cord. You will notice that the power button indicator lights up upon inserting power cord. then you may release power button and start printer. That will solve your "The waste ink absorber is full" message.

Downside is: you may have to do this frequently if your printer looses power. You will understand what i mean.

Message" waste ink absorber"


There is an absorbent sponge in the bottom of your waste ink container to help contain the waste ink your printer generates when it cleans the print head nozzles. That sponge is probably full and has triggered a "most informative" error message!

Check your user's manual about the procedure for changing the absorber and where to buy new ones.

Printer says ''waste Ink absorber is full'' see service center


This is what the manual says: Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the machine. Press [OK] to cancel the error so that you can continue printing. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be done until the waste ink absorber is replaced.
Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible.
