Waste ink absorber full and wontprint at all orange top light continually flashing was doing this weeks ago to but ijust overrided it pressed button and would print but it has a warning box saying waste...


For that error, the printer has to be opened up, the print engine removed and the pads underneath replaced. About $10.00 for the pads. After that you need to get the service mode and reset the counter to clear the error. Not a good job to do at home...

Waste tank is full, How do fix it, can I clean it myself?


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

You know, I think this is the most common problem in all Canon Printers and yet Canon must do something about this. In my case I already have 3 Canon Printers The first 1 is Canon Pixma MP160 and the problem is "The Ink absorber is Full" then my 2nd is Canon Pixma MP145 still the same problem occurs my 3rd is MP145 also and I know sooner or later I will be facing the same problem.

Sometimes I think the Canon's Printer is Disposable it won't last for a long time. I just hope I can find the right solution to this problem, so that i can fix my printers. I have lost 2 already and maybe sooner the other one will follow.
