You know, I think this is the most common problem in all Canon Printers and yet Canon must do something about this. In my case I already have 3 Canon Printers The first 1 is Canon Pixma MP160 and the problem is "The Ink absorber is Full" then my 2nd is Canon Pixma MP145 still the same problem occurs my 3rd is MP145 also and I know sooner or later I will be facing the same problem.

Sometimes I think the Canon's Printer is Disposable it won't last for a long time. I just hope I can find the right solution to this problem, so that i can fix my printers. I have lost 2 already and maybe sooner the other one will follow.

are your rubber washers still in place? Are you using OEM cartridges or refilled?

You can wash the ink absorber under warm water,dry it out and put it back.Usually you have to restart your printer too

Unable to advise about part availability, but..
This is a very mucky job and requires printer to be almost fully dismantled. This can be done if you are good with this sort of thing.
Then all waste ink would need to be washed out with water, pads fully dried and then rebuild printer.

You can clean the waste ink absorber (dirty job) and reset the waste ink counter.
