Cannon Pixma mp130 Printer

My printer had been out of action for about a week. I then found this site and cleaned the waste ink absorber to the best of my ability. Now the printer has been reset as you described, but I am not getting any ink through at all on my printing. Please can you help?

Hi There
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.

How to take apart Cannon PIXMA iP3000 to clean the waste absorber


You need to replace the ink absorber kit and to completely disassemble the printer to replace the absorber. Attempting to clean the ink absorber is not recommended. Self servicing the absorber can be a very messy operation. I would check with a Canon repair center to see what the cost to have the servicing done by a trained technician. In some cases, it is cheaper to replace the printer.

Waste Ink Absorber on Pixma MP130 multifunctional is almost full.


You don't have to change the waste ink absorber. There are two in the MP130 and they cost about $15 each. I have found though that you can just reset the counter and let the printer run without any problems. I have done this with three now with no problems. Reset procedure is:

1. Start Printer
2. Press button MENU, then SCAN, COPY and again SCAN – the printer will go into the service menu.
3. select NVRAM ACCESS and further BY OK.
4. select SET Abs- m level and reduce to zero.
5. select SET Abs- r level (if there is) and reduce to zero.
6. Turn off printer by button POWER.
