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

1 Answer

Where do I find the ink tank that has to be changed? I've turned the printer in every direction and read the manual upside down, but can't find it. I've got the "warning" for a long time (Almost full) but now it's full, and won't print out anything.What do I do?

Hi Sophie.

The ink tank is the ink cartridge, I am sure you are instead referring to the waste ink tank, which is the reservoir where ink drops from print head are collected.

Below the purge unit reset. This should already get the printer back at work. If the waste ink tank is not cleared, the printer may be start leaking ink from underneath after more prolonged use:

1. Turn on the printer.
2. Press MENU, then press SCAN, COPY and again SCAN - Printer will enter in service mode.
3. Select NVRAM ACCESS, then continue with OK.
4. Select SET ABS-M LEVEL and set its value is zero.
5. Select SET ABS-R LEVEL (if present) and also set it to zero.
6. Turn the printer off by using POWER button, wait one min and turn it back on.
7 The message should be cleared.



Here the parts manual. The waste ink tank is called purge unit, this is located at the right hand side, below the print head (ink cariiage) end position at the right hand of the rail. See pic.2-17 on manual. Accessing purge unit involve almost complete disassembly, the unit will release a lot of ink while cleaning in water.

the absorber, which is soaked in ink , must also be cleaned. The cleaning is not an operation that should be performed by the user. Here purge unit and absorber location:

Read the manual.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "CanonSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and check them on changing the ink cartridge.

Where is the waste ink


You're probably referring to the Waste Ink Tank in a Canon printer. If you've received the Waste Ink Tank nearly full message, there's a workaround.

The waste ink absorber is actually a pad/sponge that absorbs left over ink spray. There's really no precise way to measure the amount of ink these pads hold so when the message first appears, "waste ink absorber is almost full" it's just an estimate.

The workaround for the message is as follows:

Reset ip2000 / 3000

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.

Using the above procedure should clear the message and your printer should function normally afterward. Best of luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Ink from the magenta section of the ink tank tube is drawn back - its not reaching till the cartridge. Hence the color printouts are without the magenta/red colors in it.


In this case what i would request u to do is.......
Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer...........

Good Luck.........

Canon s400 doesnt print only blinks eight times


The tank is situated on the RHS.
The Print Head rests there when not in use.
Open the flap to expose the Print Head,slide the Print head across to the left.
On the area where the Print head rests, there is a black plastic square of plastic which contains 2 narrow vertically positioned ink pads.This is also spring loaded.from underneath.
The pad on the left is for BLACK the other Color.
These become saturated with ink during the cleaning process.
I suspect the Print Head has a built in sensor to detect overloaded waste tank.
The pad can be removed this by hooking it out, sideways.
Unless the pads are leaking ink everywhere I wouldn't remove it.
Use Cotton Buds to soak up the excess ink. I used about 15.

Then.....
Turn off printer
Hold down RESUME button and press POWER button.
Keep holding down POWER button and release RESUME button.
Press RESUME button 2 times, then release BOTH buttons.
The GREEN light will flash and stop flashing.
When the GREEN light goes out, press the RESUME button 4 times.
Press the POWER button and the printer should turn OFF
If not press the POWER button once more.

My experience was when turning the printer on at a later date the POWER and RESUME lights still flashed.
All I did was press the RESUME button and the printer operated as normal.

Change ink cartridge


I just did it a few minutes ago and it's pretty simple. Just grab the thing right in the center, above the print tray (there's a little handle) and pull the top up. The ink carts will be right in there (towards you, on the right) just pull the one you need to replace out, directly towards you, and then pop the new one in. There are little notches on it so you can't put it in backwards/upside-down or anything, and there's no latch or anything physically holding the cartridges down

Error 0502


Re-position the Encoder Strip on your all in one Printer To re-position the encoder strip, perform the following steps: 1. Remove the power cord from the unit. 2. Lift the lid of the unit, just below the scanner portion of the All-In-One, to expose the inside of the unit where the printer cartridges are located. 3. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer. 4. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right. 5. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier. NOTE NOTE: There is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into, which is going to be located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier. 6. Gently press the strip first to the rear and then forward to ensure that it is seated correctly. 7. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right to check the positioning of the encoder strip. 8. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the lid to the unit. 9. Re-connect the power supply to the All-In-One. 10. Press the Power button. If the encoder strip was re-seated correctly, the Hardware Error: 502 code will not appear. See attached pictures, one for an out or place encoder strip, the other for a well placed strip. Other faults that can bring up this error is a carriage rail that needs cleaning and oiling (so you might want to do that while your inside the thing), and also obstructions to the paper ways. Try removing paper jams, and put the printer upside down to shake loose anything that might jam the mechanism. Good luck!
