My Canon Pixma MP 170 tells methe waste ink absorber is full...

It is a shop repair since you have to use Canon diagnostics to reset the count and clear the error. The new part is around $10.00 only.

Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

Just press the resume button for about 5 seconds if your printer doesn't print. It's ok if the monitor tell you that the ink empty, its just about the ink catridge counter
