E 5 error

I have seen your previous answers to this but I must be a bit thick as it says next to the waste ink counter reset answer that I should look below for the procedure but there isn't anything below. I can get into the maintainance menu but can't seem to have any effect on the problem

Ink pads end service life


Such an open ended question is difficult to answer but to cover the basics, here's your options:
  1. Take the printer to a service centre and ask them to replace the waste ink pads and reset the waste ink counter.

  2. Reset the waste ink counter using a compatible tool (specific information about your printer model is required to determine if one is available).
    BUT... if you just reset, be prepared for the waste ink pads to overflow and cause damage/problems.

  3. Reset as per 2. but also install an external waste ink tank like a Printer Potty kit.
If you want more specific information, please provide your printer model and we can go from there.

How do I clean the ink absorber from a Canon Pixma iP4500 printer


First off, this is a VERY messy job. It likely requires full disassembly to chassis of the printer. The waste ink pad likely spans the entire foot print of the printer and is many pads thick, at least it does on other similar models. When we clean these, at a Cartridge World store, we rinse the pads, which are special dense felt material and then centrifuge the water and ink out, which can take multiple cycles. Low end ink printers generally do have have service manual readily available to aid in disassembly so you are on your own.

It is doable but be aware of what came from where and in which order.

Here are the instruction for how to reset the counter. Warning: Resetting the counter without cleaning the pads WILL result in waste ink overflowing out of your printer and onto whatever the printer is on, eventually.

Canon i860 used ink cartridge full error message


When the absorber is full, you need a shop to replace the absorber pads and reset the waste ink counter. In our shop the pads are $19.95 and the labor is $69.00. Sorry about the first stupid answer to your problem.

Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement. Contact your dealer...... epson stylus c40ux both lights are flashing ... won't print


A service error where you get a message telling you that "Parts inside your printer at the end of their service life, contact your dealer for replacement", or "Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement, call your service company", is normally a Maintenance Request Error. The maintenance request error is actually a Waste Ink Ink Pad Error and usually your remedy is to replace the waste ink pad/pads with a new one/ones and then reset the Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow and normally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer. You can see exploded parts diagrams for most epson ink jet printers and can also check on possible parts ordering, by Compass Micro Inc, at http://www.compassmicro.com/parts_select.cfm . Some people actually wash the ink out of the old pads, by holding them under running cold water. Then they simply dry them out and reinstall them back into their printer. The choice on what to actually do, is yours to make. I would at least recommend getting that waste ink counter reset procedure and performing it first, to make sure your printer will then work. There is an "Epson Stylus C60 Printer Information Page", that also includes the C40 & C42 series, that you can view at http://epsonhelp.freehttp.com/C60.html . It does have a section on the left side you can click-on, titled WASTE INK PAD SERVICING and also a section titled HOUSING REMOVAL, that will be of some help to you, if you want to try the needed servicing. However, you will still need to actually reset that Internal Waste Ink Counter, to clear the actual service error condition. You may be able to reset that waste ink counter, using the SSC SERVICE UTILITY available at http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/sscserve.exe . Unfortunatly, that utility only works using a windows operating system. You can check and see if your particular epson printer is compatible, by going to http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html ...Here's some previously posted info that may also help. To reset the error download this utility: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html . Once installed run the program and configure it, closing the main window and right clicking the icon in the tray area, from there choose Configure and select your printers model. After configuration, select Protection counter -> Reset protection counter, it should be able to clear the error message. If that does not actually work, then the only suggestion I can give is to perform a soft-reset before resetting counter. Remove also the Epson status agent, it detects errors and it may hinder communication with the printer, then reboot your pc. As profile choose the one sscservice didn't use after autoconfiguration, check for printer response. Remember that you should also clean the waste ink pads located at the printer bottom. For a more in-depth procedure go to his site at http://myprinter.altervista.org/simplefaq/mysimplefaq.html#counter "....Unfortunately, that ssc service utility may not actually work on all epson printers and not on all operating systems, so you will have to check it out for yourself. Just in case that source does not work: You may then need to go on-line to try and locate the actual reset procedure, to buy and download to actually reset that waste ink counter

Canon mp780 -waste ink near full??


Dear mr perfect,
Few days ago I have answered the same question about this for Canon MP700. Here is my answer:
Waste ink absorber capacity of your printer has rise to about 90-95 %. Tentatively, you can continue printing by pressing STOP/RESET button. When ink absorber capacity reach about 100%, the printer stop working and message 'Waste Ink Tank is Full' appears.
To fix this problem, you need to reset waste ink counter. It strongly recommended that you replace waste ink absorber after resetting waste ink counter.
Here are steps resetting waste ink counter of this printer:
  • With the machine power off, while pressing STOP/RESET button, press and hold the ON/OFF button. (Do not release the buttons).
  • While holding ON/OFF button, release the STOP/RESET button. (Do not release the ON/OFF button).
  • While holding the ON/OFF button, press the STOP/RESET 2 times and then release all buttons. (Each time STOP/RESET is pressed, the alarm LED and COPY lights alternately starting with alarm LED).
  • When the COPY button lights in green, press STOP/RESET button 4 times. (Each time STOP/RESET is pressed, the alarm LED and COPY lights alternately starting with alarm LED).
  • Turn off the printer.
Your printer should work normally now.
Regards,
