I'm getting a message from my Canon MP160 printer that says, "The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center." What can I do? Thanks


It's called E8 error.

Turn on your MP160.
After that press: Menu - Scan - Copy - Scan.
It will enter in Service Mode.
SERVICE MENU
NVRAM ACCESS
SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
OK
Then turn it OFF and again ON and there it is, as good as new.

Do you refill your cartridge by yourself?
Try "ROADINK" inkjet refill kit. No drill or sharp needle are needed.

"The Ink Absorber is Full"


Good day to you..

Error Code E8 right? Just press 'black' button one time. The E8 message will dissappear and replace to no 1. Then you can print as usual. I just try it just now!

I had the same problem.Adding twain_32.dll to the Windowsfolder solved the problem.For people who don't want to search for it: Look Here.
Then you won't get this error but one saying to reinstall the printer driver. Just do it and the problem is solved.
