Question about Canon PIXMA MP130 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Here this step by step to resetting waste ink counter Pixma MP130. However remember that this can cause damage to your printer unless the ink absorber pads are replaced. The reason the printer has this is to keep the pads from becoming too full and then dumping the ink inside the printer. So i highly recommend to order the pads replace them then reset the counter. However if you are in a 911 situation then you can use the following to print a few more pages before you have to replace. Just BE WARNED.
Turn printer back on and it should be reset. Good luck sometimes this does not work on certain printers with higher firmware so try thanks Steven.

SOURCE: How to fix "Ink Absorber Full"??
The ink absorber is a small piece of material that is used to hold the ink that is scraped from print heads on the ink tanks during cleaning. I suggest, wearing gloves of course, removing the material, which resembles a sponge, and cleaning it with warm water. Allow sufficient time to dry, clean the sensor with a cotton swab, and reinstall. Remember to change the ink tanks at the same time, in order to reset the ink counter. There are new absorbers available for purchase on the web, if you don't want to clean the old one. Others have had similar problems, Canon suggests sending the equipment to them for repair.

I tried a few times... I have done this alot to many different canon printers. This is what worked for me.
1. Unplug AC (and usb just for good measure)
2. Hold Start while plugging in...
3. While still holding Start press Resume twice.
4. This then allows for Removal of Ink Cartridges(if you are past the limit)... a very important step apparently.
5. Now repeat Step 1... Step 2
6. Now press the Resume 4 times (only blinks for 1st two presses !)
7. Should be ready...
Good luck. I was very happy when this worked for me.

A special service software program is needed to reset the internal counter for the ink absorber.

The print heads inside your Canon printer can become clogged and dirty over time, both from dried ink and dust particles. Each Canon printer includes a self-cleaning utility that automatically brushes off excess ink. While the feature keeps your printer running smoothly, it also fills up the foam ink absorber inside the printer. When the absorber is full, your printer displays an error message and won't print. To fix the issue, you need to clean out the absorber and reset the printer's ink absorber code.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:
Grab the plastic lid at the middle of the Canon printer and lift upward so the printer's internal compartment is visible. Wait five seconds for the ink carriage to slide over from the right side of the printer.
Locate the square rubber frame at the far right end of the printer that houses the ink absorber. Grip the frame and pull it slightly toward you until it detaches from the printer. Pull the frame to the left and lift it out of the printer. Unplug the printer's power cable.
Pull the two foam ink absorber segments out of the rubber frame. Place all three pieces in a bowl filled with warm water and soap. Gently scrub each piece to release the absorbed ink.
Dry off the two foam ink absorber segments and the rubber frame. Set them on a paper towel and wait for each component to completely dry. Slide the foam ink absorber segments back into the rubber frame.
Position the rubber frame back inside the right side of the printer. Press the frame onto its seat until it locks into place. Push closed the plastic lid.
Hold down the power button on the printer's control panel as you plug in the power cable. Release the power button and wait five seconds. Tap the power button again to reset the printer's ink absorber code.
