Two possibilities of solving this by yourself.

First solution: Clean the absorber pads
Look inside the printer, while the ink cartridge seated on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridge is two absorber pads. Open the cartridge cover, to position the cartridge carrier in the middle. Leaving the right portion open and expose the absorber pads. Lift it up using a tweezer. Now clean this pads on a running water. And when its clean return it back to its place. Close the cover.

Second solution: Reset the Printer after cleaning the absorber pads.
These are the steps to reset your printer and clear all the errors including ink absorber full.
1. Turn on the printer
2. Press the MENU key
3.
Press SCAN button
4.
Press the COPY button
5. Press the SCAN button then wait until it enters the service mode.
6.
Select NVRAM ACCESS further OK
7.
Select SET ABS-M LEVEL and set value equal to zero
8.
Select SET ABS-R LEVEL (if any) and is set to zero.
9.
Turn off the printer
Do this as many times until it fully reset the printer

Please give this solution a 4 thumbs up to help me improve my ratings.

Waste ink absorber full


Hi There you can try
How To Reset Waste Ink Canon Pixma MP130

The waste ink take is actually just a felt pad that sits under the printer mechanism inside the case and absorbs the ink from your cleanings.
From what I gather, it’s both a time consuming and expensive proposition to take to Canon to fix.
And they won't tell people how to do it themselves.

Remember of course, you've got to cycle the cleaning process a huge amount of times to get this to occur.

But when it does, there is a fix-it-yourself solution that is both safe and effective for the printer, and free.
You have to be slightly mechanical to do this.
If you you've never used a screwdriver and are all thumbs, but give it a shot or give it to someone halfway coordinated to do this for you.

You may RESET the printer code first if you like or do it after you clean the pad

Here this step by step to resetting waste ink counter printer Canon Pixma MP130

1.You will include printer
2. Press button MENU, then SCAN, COPY and again SCAN - they entered
into the service regime
3. Select NVRAM ACCESS and further BY OK.
4. Select SET Abs- m level and advance value equal to zero
5. Select SET Abs- r level (if there is) and also you will establish into zero
6. You will turn off printer by button POWER.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

"the waste ink absorber is almost full"


Although the instructions posted here are for a different model, the procedure is almost the same for all ink printers. (I used it to fix my HP printer.)

Even if you can't get the ink pads out, you can try to dry them with paper towels.
Important: DO WEAR GLOVES!!! Put plastic bags around your work space. The ink IS evil and will not come off of anything it gets on.
The first time I did it without and it took forever to get my hands clean again.

Good luck!

The waste ink disposal is almost full and it won't print


The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press [OK] to continue but early replacement recommended. <See manual>
WASTE INK NEAR FULL The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink used during print head cleaning, for example. This error message indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full.
Press the OK button to cancel the error so you can continue printing.
Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon1.gif service representative. (You will need to replace a particular part of the printer.) Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing cannot be performed until the Waste ink tank is replaced.
