My name is Steve and I work for a Canon service company. The ink absorbers need to be replaced. However due to the size of your machine it is advisable to purchase a new machine as they are extremely difficult to change.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

The wast ink absorber full, if you want to clean the ink absorber at home without wast money, i will provide you the example in Canon printer,how clean you ink absorber follow the mention below instruction and remove the error of ink absorber.
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.

The Canon inkjet I had required that a service facility perform that task as there is a reset of the firmware that must be done. Try contacting a Canon service provider or tech support to see if they will assist you. I had taken mine completely apart, disconnecting the electronics board and changing the printhead as well before that error cleared but I am not sure if you have to go that far.
