Canon Pixma MP130 waste ink absorber full? Can this be changed?

Our Canon Pixma MP130 printer is saying that the waste ink absorber is full. Having spoken to Canon they suggest our best option is to buy a new printer. Is it possible to obtain another waste ink absorber and install this ourselves?

    You can get your hands on waste ink absorbers through canon, however they generally will not release the reset codes. The reset codes will tell the printer that you have installed a new absorber getting rid of that error message. Unless you take the printer to a canon authorized technician you are pretty much S.O.L. Your printer will not work without reset codes and they are damn near impossible to find.

    Buy a new one.
