SOURCE: ink absorber is full

You would need to take it to a canon service centre..

Or look on ebay, i thinks its just cotton wool type wadding thats in there but i dont know exactly where it would be inside the printer.

Plus for the same of about £15 if anything goes wrong they have to fix it.

Pixma MP 130/110 Printer/Copier/Scanner waste ink absorber full, It neither prints nor copies


Cleaning the waste ink pads is easy.

Are your ink tanks empty and have you been using non Canon cartridges?

What does "the waste ink absorber is almost full.


IT means that the pad in the printer that absorbs excess ink is full. This costs a lot of money to replace, probably more than you paid for the printer. Just resume printing.

Pixma mp 130 Message waste tank absorber is almost full. It wont print


Take the printer to a qualified printer technician.
He/she will empty the waste-container,
and "reset" the electronics inside the printer,
to tell the printer that the waste-ink container has been emptied.
