Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
How do i fix or change
Ink Absorber Full
This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

SOURCE: Waste ink absorber
This is actually a very easy fix. Two absorber pads are located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges. With the printer on, lift the top to expose the cartridges. They will automatically move out of the way. You can move them to the left side by hand if the printer is not on. You will probably need a flashlight to see the pads. They each sit in a rubber retainer. The pads can be removed very easily and cleaned. Take the pads out of the retainers with tweezers. They clean up nicely with warm water but you can use something like Simple Green if they are stubborn. It is best to use a spray bottle (on stream) and blast it through the pad until it is white. Sometimes just putting it under a running faucet will do the trick. If there is ink in the rubber retainer after taking the pad out, it can be cleaned up with a paper towel. Put the pads back into the retainers and you have successfully cleaned the ink absorbers. Now you may have to reset the error message so you can get back to printing. This is how to do it.How to clear E27 Code

SOURCE: How to fix "Ink Absorber Full"??
The ink absorber is a small piece of material that is used to hold the ink that is scraped from print heads on the ink tanks during cleaning. I suggest, wearing gloves of course, removing the material, which resembles a sponge, and cleaning it with warm water. Allow sufficient time to dry, clean the sensor with a cotton swab, and reinstall. Remember to change the ink tanks at the same time, in order to reset the ink counter. There are new absorbers available for purchase on the web, if you don't want to clean the old one. Others have had similar problems, Canon suggests sending the equipment to them for repair.

Printer are blind, they just depend the on commands,every time you clean the head, printer will register that there is an ink sucked from the head,to reset the invisible ink, unplug the printer, press and hold power button, press feed button 3 times with 1 sec. interval (notice the light will change color every time you press feed button)release both buttons and press power.If the ink is visible, syringe can help, remove ink hose and **** the visible ink.

Tips for a great answer:
This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible. Press the button to cancel the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. 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. I will not advise you as it is not a permanent solution.
