Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer
The ink absorber is full, printer no longer copies or prints.
Waste ink is full. The printer needs servicing. Can be done yourself, though EXTREMELY MESSY! And you'll need to find how to reset the counter, or just look here:
The waste ink pad is a huge and dirty job. It requires nearly full disassembly of the machine and full washing and drying of the waste ink pads. Resetting the counter without cleaning the pads will result in waste ink overflowing out of your printer and on to what ever the printer is on. As for printer disassembly, service manuals are not generally available for consumer grade machines, which means you're on your own. Having torn down many machine's myself I can tell you it takes time, patience and a good memory. Take good note of where everything came from and how it goes back together.

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
