SOURCE: ink absorber full
I disagree with the advice at printerhelp.me.uk. It is not simple to clean out the ink absorber, but it is certainly possible. First, disassemble the printer,
then remove and squeeze out the pads of the approx 60 ml (1/4 cup) of condensed ink therein, then rinse them out with water and allow them to dry. Later, reassemble printer and perform a reset as per other articles on this site and others, or use downloadable resetting tool.
As others have pointed out, Canon and other companies are doing a service to us through the error message. If we don't clean the pads, eventually the ink would overflow and leak onto our desks. However, that would probably require 150% of the actual time or ink flow that they have used to activate the alarm.

Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
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.
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible
