Question about Canon PIXMA MP130 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Have a Pixma MP130 multifunction printer copier giving me the warning that my "waste ink absorber is almost full, see manual" Trouble with that is, the manual I have does not have an item like that. I look with my flashlight into the inside, and to the far right I think that might be it.... how would I proceed to fix this problem? Please?

I keep getting this error message come up, 'The waste ink absorber is almost full - see manual'.what do I need to do as the manual doesnt give details.


According to the user's manual, "Ink used to clean the print head is absorbed by the waste ink tank. When this message is displayed, the waste ink tank needs to be replaced, or the machine requires maintenance". There is no information about how to replace or empty the waste ink tank.

In any case, you can try the following to clear upo the error, but eventually you'll need the waste tank to be emptied or replaced.

Turn on your MP130.
1) After that press: Menu - Scan - Copy - Scan or Menu-Copy-Scan-Copy-Copy in some models, it depends on the date it was produced)
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Enter NVRAM ACCESS
4) Select SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
5) Select OK
6) Keep selecting OK untill you leave the TEST MODE
Then turn it OFF and again ON. Check if the error message is still there

The following is taken from the Canon website, regarding this specific error:
"Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk."
As I mentioned before, I have not found any way or procedure to replace the waste ink absorber nor the necesary replacement part

Waste Ink Absorber on Pixma MP130 multifunctional is almost full.


You don't have to change the waste ink absorber. There are two in the MP130 and they cost about $15 each. I have found though that you can just reset the counter and let the printer run without any problems. I have done this with three now with no problems. Reset procedure is:

1. Start Printer
2. Press button MENU, then SCAN, COPY and again SCAN – the printer will go into the service menu.
3. select NVRAM ACCESS and further BY OK.
4. select SET Abs- m level and reduce to zero.
5. select SET Abs- r level (if there is) and reduce to zero.
6. Turn off printer by button POWER.

Waste ink absorber is full How do i empty it


You can't empty that one, you need a shop to replace the pads which are under the printer, and they can reset the waste ink counter at the same time.
