The waste ink pads are under the printer and cover the whole bottom of the case. You need to remove the scanner from the top, the side covers, the main case middle cover, unplug all cables from the logic board, lift the print engine up and out and replace the pads. After that you need the service mode to reset the counter if it runs after re assembly.

The waste ink absober is full. If a service


You really need a service center for that, some have posted methods to reset here, but when the ink overflows it ruins the printer, and anything it leaks on.Canon customer service can tell you the nearest center. 1-800-828-4040.

My Canon Pixma MP 170 tells methe waste ink absorber is full...


It is a shop repair since you have to use Canon diagnostics to reset the count and clear the error. The new part is around $10.00 only.

Ink absober is full error 2 and 7 canon MP 160


it looks like you will need to take to a service center to get it replaced. You probably have used your machine a lot and the waste pads are full.

My canon mp 150 has a warning ink refill cartridge


After so many prints the printer gives you this warning because it is possible that the waste ink pads (that collect any spilt ink in the bottom of the printer) are full. You have two options. You can either reset the waste ink counter and the printer will run but might get some ink leakage if it has had a lot of use or replace the pad and reset the counter.

A waste ink kit for this printer is Canon part number QY5-0149-000. A quick search on the will get you the part for about £5. Too fit it you will need to take the printer apart but that is easy with a service manual from here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4589462-canon-pixma-mp150-printer-service-manual The manual will also tell you how to reset the waste counter.

Hope that helps.
