Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
There are two
possible ways to remove the error from your printer. First is to actually clean
the absorber pads that are full of waste ink. The second is to reset the
printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.
Clean the two absorber pads. Its is actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when it is in home base position.
How to access the pads and remove it for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base.. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezer and extra cloth for some ink spill. Using the tweezer, lift up the pads sitting on a rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing it under a running water. Warm water will be nice to remove the ink from the pads. After this, you can now return the pads. However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error or E-27.
Use a reset procedure to clear the error in your printer and start printing again.
1. Turn off the printer
2. Press and Hold both the Power and Reset button for 10 sec
3. While Holding the Power button, release the Reset button
4. Press the Reset button twice then release the Power button
5. Wait until the printer display " 0 " (or RESTART) on the led screen
7. Press Reset button 4x
8. Press Power button 3x and wait for printer to power off
9. Press the Power to turn on the printer
Do this as many times if the first attempt didn't work until it fully reset.

1. How to clean the MAIN ink absorbers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVpjqBr7KjU&feature=fvwrel
But there's a second ink absorber - the PLATEN one - which he does not talk about. The PLATEN is in the black plastic directly underneath the printhead as it slides back and forth. CLEAN THE PLATEN TOO before following the Part 2 video to reset both the MAIN and PLATEN ink absorbers in your software. And don't repeat his mistake when putting the printer back together - the springs he points to at 4:30 WILL fall out!

P.S. Of course it is much easier to bring it to ther printer service (even better if your warranty service can do it for free, if the full ink absorbers error was not caused by too intensive printing, i.e. not your fault).
