Question about Canon PIXMA MP170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The waste ink collector/tank is nearly full

I have a Canon PIXMA MP170 all-in-one printer.
I got a message saying the waste ink collector was nearly full, so I obviously need to change the waste ink pad (I think) or it will overflow or whatever !
I don't know how to change the waste ink pad or where it is.
Where can I buy a replacement new one ?

The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.

What is the wasted ink collector? A sentence appears when I try to print out a page. It tells me that the collector for the wasted ink is nearly full.


there is a waste ink tank that stores excess ink from the printing process.

it is almost full and would need to be cleaned or replaced. and then the printer needs to be reset. Recommend Canon service for that problem, there are instructions for it posted online if you care to look around.

The waste ink absorber covers the whole bottom of the machine, under the printer. It is difficult to change, and you have to get into the diagnostic mode to reset the error. A shop repair...

How do you find the waste ink collector on a printer/scanner ?


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.

The waste ink absorption pads are inside the printer, in the very bottom. They are usually soaked with ink when full and are very messy.

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