This is a purge unit error hence you need to check and make sure the purge unit is working fine. If not you need to clean it.

THE PURGE UNIT IS THE ONE ON THE RIGHT SIDE WHERE THE CARTREIDGE RESTS WHEN YOU TURN OFF THE PRINTER.

And at the same keep the below mentioned error list for your future use.

Error Message: Ink Obsorber is almost full. Any idea how I replace this. Thanks


you need to actually open the printer. the ink absorber is a piece of...thick tissue that;s absorbing the wasted ink. replace it with something else, then use mptool to clear the error message...here;s my email if you need an additional help:  office@pfamm.ro

Error message ink absorber full


Take the printer to a qualified technician, for replacement of the "ink-absorber" unit, and a "reset" of the printer (it has "calculated" when it is full -- unlike the gas-tank in your automobile, there is no actual measurement of the percentage-full status) to indicate that the new absorber is 0% full.

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].
