PIXMA MP990 ink absorber is almost full message

I have this message PIXMA MP990 ink absorber is almost full. I used a paper towel to absorb the ink on the ink absorber pad until I got very little on the towel Can I reset the ink absorber counter? I just bought ink for the printer and it works very well. Thanks.
