I am guessing that their is an electricial connection from that tray.Find that contact inside of the tray and either spray it with tunner spray(you get  a can from an electronics place like radio shack) or try cleaning it with a pencil eracer. That sensor is still reading ink in the tray.

My problem of my printer canon M198 is the ink absorber is full. give me the solution for this problem. thanks

Not all the ink that leaves the ink-cartridge reaches the paper.
Some of the ink goes into the "waste-absorber".

Take your printer to a qualified printer technician, for replacement of that component,
and resetting of the printer.

E8 Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full WHAT MUST DO?

I am told that this will reset your counter and eliminate the full absorber warning that you are getting.

Cleaning the pads is messy, sending the printer to Canon is expensive,

I used a simular reset code for my MP470 and haven't had any problems.

1. To clean physical pads:
Open cover (as if replacing ink cartridge).
Locate waste ink pads, they are far right under cartridge slider.
Pry up waste ink pads (inky, might want to wear gloves).
Rinse pads in sink or with alcohol, dry.
Replace pads. Make sure pads are fully seated.

2. To reset waste ink counter:
Press Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan to enter service menu.
Use arrow keys to scroll to "Service menu counter access".
Press OK.
Use arrow keys to scroll to "ABS-M DOT COUNT"
Press Copy.
Use arrow keys to reset count to zero.
Press OK.
Press Stop/Reset.

Waste ink absorber is full. where can i get a reseter for canon MP190

been googling for quite a while looking for the correct reset of this canon MP190. but none found that works for MP190. obviously CANON, don't want anyone to reset and make use of their printer but to buy instead.

based on the logic of MP160 and similar MP series canon printer. The same will apply for MP190, the resetter should be able to access the printer's eprom chip and erase or over write those counters stat stored.
there are couple of IC chips at the back of the printer to start on.

My printer displayed: the ink absorber is full. i then cleaned the absober but its now not displaying anything. so how best do i solve this problem?

For Canon MP190 ONLY it worked that software but I used a software named Resetter Canon MP198. First put the printer in service mode. Press and hold the RESUME button (Is the red one ), then press and hold the POWER button, wich became green.
While still holding the POWER button, Release the RESUME button, then press and release the RESUME button two more times. Ast the first press the green power button turns off and a orange led turns on. At the second press the orange led turns off and the power became green. Now the printer is in Service Mode. So with printer conected to PCstart the software and reset the ink absorber level. It worked for me.

Printer warns waste ink near full. Cannon

The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it or it will still not work, I not know about your printer I have only looked it up for you. It may be screwed down inside so you need to open all up or get a shop to de it for you.
I not find your model printer on the internet but I found one and it same type of printer as yours MP210 but a different number it canon MP190 and it have a reset waste ink for it you can try it may work for you, try resetting it first before you try clean it, if this not work you will have to find the right reset for it.

Waste ink near full

That's the early warning for nearly full, in a little while it will change to waste tank full and will stop printing. You need to take it to a shop for new absorbers, and then have the counter reset.
