Question about Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer
I read quite a few blogs looking for this problem, and one fellow had the same problem after replacing a cartridge, but noone knew of a solution. I'm inclined to think it's a tricky problem like a loose ribbon connector connected to the print head, or possibly a faulty print head (even though new). I couldn't find a clue on the net, but if I stumble across something I will report back in a followup.

Normally you will need to let the printer know that you have preformed any maintenance on it by clearing the error count after such an error occurs and is fixed it is normally listed under general or service options on the printer menu but you may need to look through the users manual
hope this helps

I know you already reset the ink absorber, but be certain you followed:
1) With the printer powered off, hold down the resume button and press the power button.
2) While holding down the power button, release the resume button and press the resume button twice in succession. Now release the power button. The indicator will blink in green and remain lit in green.
3) Press resume 4 times (Green) for Waste ink counter reset.
4) press the power button. The printer will switch itself off after performing the function.
If you have already performed those steps, I'd suggest to reinstall the printer driver:
Go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon.
Note: Here's how to delete a printer icon in Windows 7:
1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Disconnect the USB cable.
Restart your computer.
Reconnect the USB to your computer.
Your computer should see your printer. Install the printer driver.
Hope this helps.
