Servicing the, waste ink absorber, on a Canon printer

When I try to print anything with my Canon Pixma MP130 I'm told the "waste ink absorber is almost full, check owners manual". But I don't know anything about this and I can't find the manual. I checked online to order another manual but was unsuccessful. I therefore have 2 questions;
a) how do I rectify my waste ink absorber problem, and,
b) where/how can I get another owners manual?
Also; I've never heard of FixYa before does FixYa help with non-electronics problems too? Is it like the JUST ANSWER site?
Thanks; Herb Eichner of or ph# 780-433-5521

Have some info for you:

a) If waste ink absorber almost full it will eventually need to be serviced. For now you can hit ok to error, unplug printer for a minute or two and power back on. If it prevents you from printing at all you should call Canon or bring to a certified Canon Repair Center.

Telephone support for Canon:

If the printer is within a year of purchase you can try and get an exchange.

b) Owners Manual:
Found on the install disk if you still have it or you can download from this direct link:

Have put new cartridges in and only prints yellow lines

Remove all cartridges, make sure any tape has been removed from over the nozzle. Ensure that everything has been installed properly, then use your printer (prompts on device, or in printer>control panel) to print some test pages, realign heads, etc.

It says replave watse toner...what does that mean and where do i find that on the copier

Laser-printers work by putting a static-electricity charge on a drum, and then putting dry toner ink onto the drum. The toner sticks ONLY to the charged spots on the surface of the drum.
The rest of the toner falls into a "waste" receptable.

So, the container that holds the "waste" has become full, and needs to be physically emptied.

Follow the on-screen instructions on the display-panel on the printer, or call your local CANON office, to have a technician make a service-call, to do it, and show you how to do it, the next time.

D Link DP301U not working with a Canon MXF series printer

dont' worry about what the d-link site says. its because they haven't tested it. i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different workstations with the following steps.

1. install printer locally via usb and test.
2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it.
3. once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the port to something local - anything will do to free up the port.
4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server.
5. test print. should work fine.

How do you set up wireless printing w/the canon PIXMA MX700?

Hi Coach!

Here is a tutorial that will explain most of the basic steps to sharing your printer. It will walk you thru how to set it up.
With the Canon, MX700, on each machine you connect to the printer, you will have to have the driver CD. When XP asks for the drivers, just put the CD, and XP will find it drives it need. This whole process will go smoother, if you use a printer cable and not the USB. If you need the drivers, you can get them on the Canon site.
Good luck,
