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 full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

I'm getting a message from my Canon MP160 printer that says, "The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center." What can I do? Thanks


It's called E8 error.

Turn on your MP160.
After that press: Menu - Scan - Copy - Scan.
It will enter in Service Mode.
SERVICE MENU
NVRAM ACCESS
SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
OK
Then turn it OFF and again ON and there it is, as good as new.

Do you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needle are needed.

How can i solve ''absober full on pixma mp160.''??


Greetings,

If your ink absorber is reporting full, you need to take it to a Canon service center to have it replaced and have the counters cleared. When you clean your print heads, the ink is stored in this absorber and it gets full over the lifetime of your printer. Go to the following link to locate a nearby service center.

Thanks

"ink absorber is almost full, contact service center" - what does this mean?


Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts.
Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears.
You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.

Waste tank absorber is almost full ~ message


I've taken this from my manual.
This error message indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used
during FINE Cartridge cleaning, for example.
You can continue printing by selecting Continue*1
on the display on your camera.
However, because printing is disabled once
the ink absorber becomes completely full
and until the ink absorber is replaced, you
are recommended to contact a Canon
service representative as early as possible.
*1 To resume printing, you can press
[OK] (MP180) / [Black] or [Color] (MP160) on
the machine instead of selecting [Continue].
