Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The waste ink absorber is used to absorb the excess ink during printing. You will have to clean it first to be able to print again. It looks like a sponge pad that is located under the chamber where you insert the cartridges. Remove the cartridge, take a dry cloth and press it against the pad to absorb the ink of it. Keep repeating by using fresh areas of the cloth until you see little or no ink appearing on the cloth. Once done, turn on the printer, turn it off and turn it on again. You will most likely be able to print. If not we can always use the reset code to clear the eeprom's memory.

Thanks for using FixYa. Open the cover, move the cartridges to the centre, and then press the pad of absorbent paper towel onto the waste ink pads. You can locate the waste ink pads to the right of the cartridges. This will absorb a lot of ink in the pads and that will remove the warning after you reset the printer waste ink tank counter. Another thing you can do is to completely replace the waste ink pads or maybe take a hot water towel and clean it till the time you see no ink residue on the towel & then let it dry out. You can reset your Canon Printer by following this procedure—
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 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 on/off lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times for waste ink counter reset.
5) Turn off the printer. (It must be turn off) then turn it on again.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
