good day! please go to the nearest service center or technician, you printer need a general cleaning, need to replace their sponge in the waste tank, to avoid overflow, it may cause damage of the internal parts of your printer, like the sensor.
These printers have a waste tank which receives a short squirt of ink every time you use it. This is in order to keep the heads clean. Normally it is recommended that you take the printer in for service but often the cost of a service is almost the cost of a new machine.
It is possible to take the printer apart and look under the park point of the print cartridges when they are at rest. You will find a container or compartment containing either wadding or a sponge. You need to clean or replace this - warning wadding will often disintegrate so you may find it easier to try and replace it!
Once you have cleaned/replaced the material you will need to reset the internal counter - google for an appropriate tool/program for your machine.
This printer needs a service, the waste ink tanks are full. The printer needs to be opened up, and these waste ink spounges need to either be replaced or cleaned. Use disposable gloves and water to flush out the ink. Dry out the sponges in the sun, and reinstall them.
Once unziped and installed, double click the application and find the reset waste ink counter reset it. This should solve the problem.
You will be printing in no time.
Your timely rating of this soloution is much appreciated
Inkjet printer has waste ink absorber inside, sponge alike. The function of waste ink absorber is to localize and keep waste ink safe inside the printer and does not harm the electrical parts. Waste ink is produced from print head cleaning process and borderless printing. When capacity of the ink absorber raise to about 90% then warning message appears. You need to bring your printer to the nearest service center to get waste ink absorber replaced.
The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange
Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used
during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is
nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the
error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank 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 tank becomes completely full, printing will no
longer be possible.
Probably your waste ink counter. Should be cleaned or replaced before resetting but usually you can get away with resetting once. 1. Start with printer OFF 2.

Select functions below with RESUME, execute with POWER
0 presses - green light - Test Print (exit service for i960) 1 press - orange light - EEPROM info print 2 presses - green light - EEPROM initialise 3 presses - orange light - reset waste ink counter.
Your waste tank is full. It is located at the bottom side of your unit. Actually, the tank is a flat sponge or foam like material about 1/4 inch thick. I have experience removing it and cleaning it by soaking it in water and soap, but I wouldn't suggest you do it cause it is hard to remove it and pretty messy to clean it. Take it to the service center.
You need to open the printer, remove the waste tank and sponge, changing sponge and cleaning tank with water and then solvent solution. do it in your bathroom as its gonna be a dirty operation. I think in your printer the tank is located at right hand corner, watching the printer from front side
