This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move. To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer. Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber. Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.
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.
You'll always find the wast ink absorber under the printer head after
printer head prints and rest, there is a rubber type clip which cleans
the head and the ink drips down on the cushion absorber. Disassemble
the printer and remove the cushion than dip in the bucket of water
until ink dissolves out of the cushion and wash under running tap until clean then dry
and finish, put back the item and assemble the printer.
