    I have the same problem and am told it is cheaper to buy a new printer than to have the absorber replaced. Is there a way around this?

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.
