Cleaning or replacing the ink absorber is not for the faint of heart, it's a messy job,wear rubber gloves and old clothes. After the cleaning you still have to reset the counter so it will let you print again, so don't forget that part.
Here is a link to a web page with the full instructions for both procedures.

Well, at some point you will need to either replace or wash the absorber pads in the printer - but you can reset the warning as follows:
1) Turn the printer off
2) Press and hold the <resume>button
3) Press and hold the <power> button
4) While holding down <power> release <resume>
5) With the power button still held down, press <resume> twice more
6) Release the power button
7) Press and release the <resume> button 4 times
8) Press and release the <power> button twice
At this point, the printer should come back online with the waste ink warning reset
Personally, I would only do this once before actually changing the ink absorber pad...

A special service software program is needed to reset the internal counter for the ink absorber.
