Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The waste ink is a cotton-like pad at the back of the ink that absorbs all the ink that is unused and whenever you run the printer head cleaning utility. This doesn't really gets full but rather the printer has an internal counter that counts up whenever it is used. There are utilities on the internet that lets you reset this counter and then you can use the printer again. A word to the wise though, this waste ink pad does get soggy over time and might spill over when it can no longer hold any more waste ink. Below are a couple of links that can reset the waste ink counter together with instructions on how to do it.
