Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Says it needs replaced
Replacing the absorber is a hard task. if this is the first time you have had this problem.
Hold the ON/OFF button down, while holding the Stop/Reset botton down. Look under your finger untill the green LED is on. Then follow these - press reset button twice, wait a few seconds, and then press it 4 times. (You hold the power button down the whole time.) Then let go of both buttons. Then turn off the printer, it takes a while to respond to this. Turn it back on and off you go!!

get your printer serviced so that the technician can clean of the absorber and place it back.the absorber cost is very minor, it is normally covered in the technicians service charges.

This error means that the waste ink pads have filled up to the point where the printer believes the ink will overflow and leak or cause damage to the printer.
To give you a quick primer... Every time you run a cleaning routine or printer borderless photos the printer will dump a small amount of ink into a set of highly absorbent pads that live in the base of the printer.
These pads can only accept so much ink before they become full but experience has shown that you could reset the EEPROM waste counter if you locate the appropriate codes for your printer.
I'd recommend asking on nifty-stuff.com in the forums and see if someone can provide the information and code you need.
Hope that helps.

You need to disassembling the hole printer to find and replace the ink absorber.It's on the bottom from right side under the pump station.
Also you need to reset the ink counter:
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

You might want to try just resetting your printer rather than changing the ink pad. The warning is based on a count of how much printing is done, not a measure of full the ink pad has become. Consequences of not changing the ink pad, if truly filled to capacity, could be ink leaking from the bottom of the printer.
The following video show how to perform a reset that should work for your printer. The second video will give you an appreciation for how to change an ink pad and help you to decise whether you wish to attempt.
