The ink absorber is to the right of the printer. It collects ink everytime the printer is used to clean the printing heads on the ink cartridges. So, get some kitchen towel and dab out as much of the ink as possible, then do this. I found this on another website:

Procedure to Reset Ink Tank Full Error for Canon IP1700
First Step (Hardware Reset)

1. Turn Off the printer, and then take off the cable power.
2. Push and hold the power button (use your fore finger to hold the power button).
3. Connect again the power cable.
4. Use your middle finger to push the resume button 2 times.
5. Release the power button.
6. Finish. you have finised the first step to reset Ink Tank Full Error (Blink Error).

It worked for me. Beware, this will tell your PC you have a new printer, so you will have to go to the printers folder and set this 'new' printer as the default, otherwise it won't print.

Hope this helps.
