Have the service manual for your model, but replacing the ink absorber doesn't look easy. You might want to consider seeing a Canon repair person.
If it is possible to e-mail the service manual I will do so to you if it helps!

Where is the ink absorber located


The ink absorber in the MP160 is located in the rear righthand corner in the base of the printer. It is a thick felt pad which gradually gets saturated with ink which is sucked from the cartridges each time you hear the whirring noise before printing. I dismantled my printer once and washed and dried the pad before putting it all back together again. If you ignore the "waste ink adsorber full" warning for too long there is a risk excess ink will leak from the base of the printer. Dismantling the printer to get at the absorber pad is a major exercise. Some newspaper placed under the printer will buy you some time and stop damage to your desktop.

Ink absorber full


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.

This just resets the error message - it does not remove excess ink from the waste tank!

Good luck...

What does "the waste ink absorber is almost full.


IT means that the pad in the printer that absorbs excess ink is full. This costs a lot of money to replace, probably more than you paid for the printer. Just resume printing.
