Question about Canon PIXMA MP130 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My waste ink absorber is almost full. Where is it?
Doesn't anyone help anyone anymore for anything better than that lousy dollar.
Someone else asked same question on this site and got answer:
I also had that message. This seemed to work to clear the message and let you carry on printing.
Also, I may be wrong, but the actual ink absorber is the sponge part by the rollers underneath when it prints. I dont know if it has sorted the actual problem, but I took the sponge part out (I have an MP130 and the sponge part lifts straight out if you carefully put your finger underneath it on the left hand side) and let it soak in water, sqeezing it to get the ink out (It was full of ink so careful not to get it everywhere as it can be a little messy). When it had dried, I carefully put it back in (make sure you put it in the right way around).
Hopefully that now means the ink absorber is again empty AND the error message has gone.
Not sure about the whole cleaning the sponge idea, but I did it and according to the manual that sponge is labelled as the ink absorber so technically I have emptied it?
I haven't seen any posts about actually cleaning the sponge so take that part as you will.
