Here this step by step to resetting waste ink counter Pixma MP130. However remember that this can cause damage to your printer unless the ink absorber pads are replaced. The reason the printer has this is to keep the pads from becoming too full and then dumping the ink inside the printer. So i highly recommend to order the pads replace them then reset the counter. However if you are in a 911 situation then you can use the following to print a few more pages before you have to replace. Just BE WARNED.

  1. Turn Printer On
  2. press button MENU, then SCAN, COPY and again SCAN - they entered into the service regime.
  3. select NVRAM ACCESS and further BY OK.
  4. select SET Abs- m level and advance value equal to zero.
  5. select SET Abs- r level (if there is) and also you will establish into zero.
  6. you will turn off printer by button POWER.

Turn printer back on and it should be reset. Good luck sometimes this does not work on certain printers with higher firmware so try thanks Steven.

SOURCE: How to fix "Ink Absorber Full"??

The ink absorber is a small piece of material that is used to hold the ink that is scraped from print heads on the ink tanks during cleaning.  I suggest, wearing gloves of course, removing the material, which resembles a sponge, and cleaning it with warm water.  Allow sufficient time to dry, clean the sensor with a cotton swab, and reinstall.  Remember to change the ink tanks at the same time, in order to reset the ink counter.  There are new absorbers available for purchase on the web, if you don't want to clean the old one.  Others have had similar problems, Canon suggests sending the equipment to them for repair.

I tried a few times... I have done this alot to many different canon printers. This is what worked for me.

1. Unplug AC (and usb just for good measure)
2. Hold Start while plugging in...
3. While still holding Start press Resume twice.
4. This then allows for Removal of Ink Cartridges(if you are past the limit)... a very important step apparently.
5. Now repeat Step 1... Step 2
6. Now press the Resume 4 times (only blinks for 1st two presses !)
7. Should be ready...

Good luck. I was very happy when this worked for me.

Canon Printer Pixma MX700 All-In-One/ Alert message received. Ink absorber almost full. Contact service. How to get to? Have to replace?


Ink Absorber Full
This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.

Well the error message states that the mx310 ink bucket absorber is full and i cannot print\copy...


This is a reoccuring problem with cannon printers:

The print heads inside your Canon printer can become clogged and dirty over time, both from dried ink and dust particles. Each Canon printer includes a self-cleaning utility that automatically brushes off excess ink. While the feature keeps your printer running smoothly, it also fills up the foam ink absorber inside the printer. When the absorber is full, your printer displays an error message and won't print. To fix the issue, you need to clean out the absorber and reset the printer's ink absorber code.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Gloves
  • Bowl
  • Soap
  • Paper towel
  1. 1

    Grab the plastic lid at the middle of the Canon printer and lift upward so the printer's internal compartment is visible. Wait five seconds for the ink carriage to slide over from the right side of the printer.

  2. 2

    Locate the square rubber frame at the far right end of the printer that houses the ink absorber. Grip the frame and pull it slightly toward you until it detaches from the printer. Pull the frame to the left and lift it out of the printer. Unplug the printer's power cable.

  3. 3

    Pull the two foam ink absorber segments out of the rubber frame. Place all three pieces in a bowl filled with warm water and soap. Gently scrub each piece to release the absorbed ink.

  4. 4

    Dry off the two foam ink absorber segments and the rubber frame. Set them on a paper towel and wait for each component to completely dry. Slide the foam ink absorber segments back into the rubber frame.

  5. 5

    Position the rubber frame back inside the right side of the printer. Press the frame onto its seat until it locks into place. Push closed the plastic lid.

  6. 6

    Hold down the power button on the printer's control panel as you plug in the power cable. Release the power button and wait five seconds. Tap the power button again to reset the printer's ink absorber code.

How to fix my printer? it has message that the ink absorber is almost full


Not all the ink that leaves the ink-cartridges gets sprayed onto the paper. Some of the ink is "wasted", and ends-up in the absorber (a small sponge inside a small garbage-can).

A computer-technician can empty the absorber (or replace it), and reset the "counters" inside the printer, to tell the printer that the new absorber now is only 0% "full".

The ink absorber is full and printer won't print.


Normally when you get the "ink absorber is full" message, you would take machine to a Canon service center. They will either clean the ink absorbers or more than likely they will replace the ink absorbers. After replacement, the ink absorber full message will have to be reset which is done in the service mode.
