The answer to this question is yes you can do it but it is a messy complicated job. What it means is that the ink pads are full and need replacing. Sometimes you can reset the counter but I have found that it is not worth it as you could end up with ink flowing from the printer onto your carpet.
The simple answer is to replace the printer......They are so cheap today that it is not worth playing around with.

How can i solve ''absober full on pixma mp160.''??


Greetings,

If your ink absorber is reporting full, you need to take it to a Canon service center to have it replaced and have the counters cleared. When you clean your print heads, the ink is stored in this absorber and it gets full over the lifetime of your printer. Go to the following link to locate a nearby service center.

Thanks

After restoring blank ink in MP145 the computer doesn't recognise


This is mainly a result of dirty contacts. The contacts between the catridge and the connective socket is either loose of not clean or to say Dirty. Try cleaning the contacts with alcohol. Also make sure that the ink catridge is supported by your printer.

Its appear " The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center."


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

I can,t find out how i can tell my comp I have reloaded new ink


Just press the resume button for about 5 seconds if your printer doesn't print. It's ok if the monitor tell you that the ink empty, its just about the ink catridge counter

Waste tank absorber is almost full ~ message


I've taken this from my manual.
This error message indicates that the ink absorber is nearly full.
The machine has a built-in ink absorber to hold the ink used
during FINE Cartridge cleaning, for example.
You can continue printing by selecting Continue*1
on the display on your camera.
However, because printing is disabled once
the ink absorber becomes completely full
and until the ink absorber is replaced, you
are recommended to contact a Canon
service representative as early as possible.
*1 To resume printing, you can press
[OK] (MP180) / [Black] or [Color] (MP160) on
the machine instead of selecting [Continue].
