Pixma mp198 e2

My canon MP198 shows Error 5, 'E' alternating with '5' on printer LED. It could not recognised my cartridges. I want to reset the ink counter but when i tried to eneter service mode (Press both power+ stop, release stop, press stop twice, and release both power and stop buttons), i did not get the LED to show '0'. It was just blank. I used the service tool, but i think the printer did not get the service tool's actions, even thought the page showed 'action finished.'. Please help me get into the MP 198 service mode. Thanks

SOURCE: have problem with my printer canon pixma mp198,

Some have posted reset instructions here, but I wouldn't do that since the ink can overflow and make a mess. You should have the absorbers replaced by a repair shop and the reset done properly.

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.
