You could order them from an authorized Canon Delaer, it's a part, not a supply item.

    No seriously Tim if you want to purchase the waste ink absorbers email me and I'll give you my phone #. Not too sure if we have them in stock, but I can check it out if you still need them. Thanks, P

My Canon i965 is not working but I get a message that says "the used Ink tank is full" and the orange light is flashing all the time -


Canon printers have a waste recepticle bin that catches the overflow ink which is used to lubricate the print heads. The print heads need to be primed to stay wet for the printer to work on command. When the overflow tank is full, you get the warning notice that you mentioned in your question on Fixya. It means the tank needs to be removed & a new empty one should be installed in its place in order for printing to continue.

To solve this issue, you need to contact Canon's customer service department. You can request service on the printer & have them replace the waste recepticle, or you can order the part with replacement instructions and complete the task yourself. Their are disposal instructions that need to be followed for the used ink in the tank and Canon can provide them when you contact them.

Good luck!

Tip

"The waste ink absorber is almost full" message?


This applies to the CANON PIXMA MP130 and other ink-jets made by Canon/Pixma.

According to the user's manual, "Ink used to clean the print head is absorbed by the waste ink tank. When this message is displayed, the waste ink tank needs to be replaced, or the machine requires maintenance". There is no information about how to replace or empty the waste ink tank.

In any case, you can try the following to clear up the error, but eventually you'll need the waste tank to be emptied or replaced. And as far as I know, you can't find the replacement parts to buy, nor the instructions to empty the waste tank.

Turn on your MP130.
1) After that press: Menu - Scan - Copy - Scan or Menu-Copy-Scan-Copy-Copy in some models, it depends on the date it was produced)
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Enter NVRAM ACCESS
4) Select SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
5) Select OK
6) Keep selecting OK untill you leave the TEST MODE

Then turn it OFF and again ON. Check if the error message is still there.
The following is taken from the Canon website, regarding this specific error:

"Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk."

As I mentioned before, I have not found any way or procedure to empty or replace the waste ink absorber nor the necesary replacement part.

Hello,

You need to replace the ink service module BEFORE it gets completely full.

You can go to this web page for instructions:

Replacement of Ink Service Module

The part number is CB026-67043 for the Officejet H470 printer. You can order it from HP or check for availability from a local office supply store such as Staples or Office Max.

Here is the HP page to order:

HP H470 Ink Module

Thanks for using Fixya.

Parts inside your printer are coming to the end of their life


It could be the Waste Ink Pad. Call Epson tech support for the correct answer. If it is the pad go to the site below and get a Waste Ink Container. It sits outside the computer. Lood at the CISS, it will save you Tons of money.

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.
