Question about Canon Printers & Copiers
The waste ink pads require replacement and the counter needs to be reset. You will need to take the unit to a canon service centre to be repaired. The replacement of the waste pads is a nasty, dirty job and should only be done by a trained technician as you are required to reset the counter using the service software. Canon do not release this to anyone but their service centres and they will not allow any body else to have them.

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
