Your ink absorber pad is full and needs to be replaced.
Canon will sell you a new ink absorber pad.
or you can take it in for repair for about $60 or try to do it yourself.
With the cost of the repair, I would try it myself. For $60 you can get a new printer it it doesn't work.
Remove the pad and take it out (do this outside, with disposable gloves and old clothes), wash it out with a hose, let it dry completely, and reinstall it in the printer.
But you will still need the code to reset the printer. I have not found it yet for your machine.
This is not your model, but it might work:
Reset Waste Ink
1) Enter SERVICE MODE.
By pressing Menu Copy Scan Copy Copy
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select  PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR].
5) Select 0. [INK COUNT].
6) Press the [Set] key.
7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.

There is you problem!
You can refill it to a serten level, after that the chip on the cardridge whon recognize the filling any more.
Time to buy a original cardridge and replace that one.
Then you can refil the new one again until the chip says stop again
Good luck to you M8!
