Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The waste ink absorber is the place where the head rests to the side of the printer (under where the heads are when you change the ink). There is a way to empty them.
Call a print job. When the heads move away, gently stop them with your hand. They should stop, and an error will come up. Soak up the sponge in the original location with a paper towel. Then reset the printer, and the heads should return to normal, hopefully without the error message
OR you can also try this.
Before we start what needs to be done is that the two little filters under the printer carts need to be cleaned as well as the two little rubber parts housing the filters; wash these in water (after taking out of the printer) the filters should come up white-ish.
Also make sure that while you have the filters out to clean in and around that area with a cloth / tissues something to absore excess ink. After you clean this however you still need to service resert your printer.
The method for doing so is worded very badly on alot of sites so I will explain my way.
(1) have your printer power down ie. off, just to make sure pull the plug out and wait 10 seconds.
(2) plug printer back in, now Hold down the Stop/Reset button don't let go.
(2a) push and hold the on/off button
----at this point both fingers are holding down the buttons.----
(3) take your finger of Stop/Reset, pause maybe a second now press stop/reset button once and then press again and hold.
--- both fingers at this point are hold down both buttons----
(4) take your finger off on/off and now finally take your finger off stop reset.
---wait for the printer to go into its service mode ie. wait maybe 30 secs a min whatever till the printer carage has moved back into ints original spot.
---after this has occoured you should be able to press Stop/reset to cycle though the options
each time you press Stop/Reset Alarm and on/off should alternate lighting up. Hope this helps.

Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber for the ink used during Print Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible
