Canon pixma mp180/mp160 won't print

After reading the troubleshooting portion of my manual, I'm assuming that my ink absorber is full. How do you take care of that?? I have installed new ink, the maching is running okay (except for the not printing part!) It starts up fine (makes all the right noises) but won't feed the paper through the roller. We've had it over a year and not had a problem until now. Help..two teenagers with papers to write!

Received message ''the waste ink absorber is full'' What can I do?

You will have to replace the waste ink pads. There should be two of them on the right under the print head in rubber containers. It could be a messy job though. I think the pads on that printer has a metallic strip for detecting full condition. So you can't reuse the pads even if you clean them up.

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].
