Hi I have a Cannon printer MP180, it stopped working and a message came up "ink absorber full service required". I stripped the printer down and cleaned the "ink absorber" but it still comes up with "service required" and the ON/OFF and another orange light continue to flash.

Is there a reset code to reset the service state?

Look forward to your thoughts.
