I am sorry to say that you cannot reset the ink absorber counter. It can only be done by an Canon engineer or a canon trained engineer as the software required to perform the reset is personalised by Canon to the individual engineer. You will have to take it to an authorised canon repairer. Any way you cant change the absorbers yourself as they are in bottom of the machine and it needs to be stripped.
Almost all printers nowadays have a special integrated circuit inside the cartridges that decreases a counter each time they are used and that is how they know the ink is empty. They also DO NOT reset when you refill the cartridge - this is a way to force you to buy brand new ones...
There are ways to reset the printers after installing refilled cartridges - some need special electronic devices to do it, others only need to push some buttons in a specific order. Please, check these four links and tell us if they helped you solve this problem:

Thats funny, cause I took the cartridges out and left the lid up, unplugged it, plugged it back in with my finger on the power button and tapped the stop/reset button twice. Put the cartridges in, pressed the color start, after some moaning a test page printed. I unplugged it again, plugged it back in and I had full ink Levels!!!
