Hello and thanks for your question.You will have to order new waste ink pads from Epson and replace accordingly to get everything back to alright.
Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Its not recommended for users to replace the waste ink absorber tank.
If you want you can also take the help of a local printer repair shop to replace it at a less cost.
If you want to repair it in local repair shop; I can give you the contact of a local printer repair shop near your area, if you tell me your city name.
