Have you put in new ink cartridges? It may be all you need.

    It is also possible that the ink tank(s) are not seated properly. Take them out and re-seat them. If they are old, replace them.

To reset waste ink counter:

To clean physical pads (optional):
-Open cover (as if replacing ink cartridge).
-Locate waste ink pads, they are far right under cartridge slider.
-Pry up waste ink pads (inky, might want to wear gloves).
-Rinse pads in sink or with alcohol, dry.
-Replace pads. Make sure pads are fully seated.

Tip

"The waste ink absorber is almost full" message?


This applies to the CANON PIXMA MP130 and other ink-jets made by Canon/Pixma.

According to the user's manual, "Ink used to clean the print head is absorbed by the waste ink tank. When this message is displayed, the waste ink tank needs to be replaced, or the machine requires maintenance". There is no information about how to replace or empty the waste ink tank.

In any case, you can try the following to clear up the error, but eventually you'll need the waste tank to be emptied or replaced. And as far as I know, you can't find the replacement parts to buy, nor the instructions to empty the waste tank.

Turn on your MP130.
1) After that press: Menu - Scan - Copy - Scan or Menu-Copy-Scan-Copy-Copy in some models, it depends on the date it was produced)
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Enter NVRAM ACCESS
4) Select SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
5) Select OK
6) Keep selecting OK untill you leave the TEST MODE

Then turn it OFF and again ON. Check if the error message is still there.
The following is taken from the Canon website, regarding this specific error:

"Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk."

As I mentioned before, I have not found any way or procedure to empty or replace the waste ink absorber nor the necesary replacement part.

Message-the waste ink absorber is almost full on pixma MP130


That is usually Canon's sneaky way of telling you that is nearing time to buy new printer. Used on older machines without chips on cartriges. After "almost full" msg, usually follows "waste ink tank full" after which printer becomes unusable. Solution: Google "waste ink tank full" reset tool and run it, that should do the thing.

Canon PIXMA MP130 'waste ink absorber' message


If the error message is ""ink waste absorber almost full"

1) Enter SERVICE MODE By pressing Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan
2) Enter NVRAM by pressing OK
4)Enter ABS-M LEVEL by pressing <--- or ---> then OK
5)SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
6)OK
7)STOP/RESET"

If the error message is "" bottom ink waste absorber almost full"
Set "ABS-P" level to 0. Then "OK" and "STOP/RESET"

To clean the absorber, open the cover, and there are 2 small pads under where the cartridges normally sit. Put a pad of absorbent kitchen towel on top of the pad and press down a few times. The towel should absorb most of the ink. To give it a really good clean, turn the printer upside down while holding the kitchen towel over the pads and press a few times. You'll get more ink out.

It's a good idea to wear disposable gloves when you do this.
