With the Canon PIXMA MP150 I found that the colour button fix was best for removing the error message. There is no such thing as an absorber tank. The print cartridges come to rest against a pad each of the 2 pads has a suction pump attached to its underside and this feeds down to the base of the machine where there is a corner boxed off by pads to soak up the residue. None of this has any electronic sensors so "Tank Full" must come a count of the number of times the system is purged.

From Google, they say this When you often do deep cleaning and cleaning for your printer, the waste ink tank will be full and you will get E8 on the control panel.  It’s means your waste ink tank is full.  To fix this you must empty waste ink tank it will be permanent fix for E8 error message.  But if you are not a technician you can ignore this message by pressing Color Copy Button, It will help for a while but not forever.
My experienced, This message will appear when you turn on your printer, press 1 Color copy button.  But when you turn off your printer and turn on again the message will appear again.
I suggest you to bring your printer to the service center or technician to permanent clear the error message.

Ink absorber is almost full (Cannon MP 145)

for first aid you can reset it in service mode.
Service mode operation procedures:
1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding
the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a
service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the
function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in
orange and green, starting with orange.)

Then press 4 times the reset button and then press 2 times the reset button.


Hope that helps!

I have a cannon mp 145 printer, but ink absorber is full

this printer isnt and easy fix of changing the waste ink absorber. You will need to take it into a Canon repair center and have them do it. It should take them no longer then an hours labor and the cost of the kit to fix. If you think you can technically do it yourself you can find the parts on ebay and the service manual. But be warned this can be a messy job and could possibly not work if you dont really know what your doing.

Best of luck...

Error code means
E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full

Yes, you can do this yourself.

YOu can do a search on here for the error code, there are instructions on how to reset the error and clean the absorber..

Or you can do a search for the "SERVICE" manual for your printer and order it, then follow it's instructions to clean the pads and reset the error.

Let me know if you can't find the solution on here, and I will post it for you.
