Question about Computers & Internet
Please give more information, Name and model of printer etc.
Do you want dismantle instructions?
Can you just take out the absorber?
If you can, then you can clean it out with warm water. Ink jet inks are water soluble.

Tips for a great answer:
Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber for the ink used during Print Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible
