Epson xp-520 "ink pad needs service" How do I get to it and than what?

When the ink cartridges park there is an absorbent pad that catches ink when the printer is in the cleaning mode. Put the printer on the clean mode and when the cartridges move off the park position, unplug the printer (do not turn the printer off with the power switch). Now you have access to the pad. It's full of ink, so be careful of the mess it's going to make. I use a toothpick or a straightened out paper clip to stab the pad to get it out of the printer. Once out, just wash the excess ink out then put the pad back. IMPORTANT: push the cartridges back to the right or the park position before plugging in the printer.

Cleaning the waste ink pad on most printers.


Assuming that you have already removed the Waste ink pad from your printer. Place it in hot running water and i mean lots of water. when you think enough of the ink has been cleaned, start squeezing the waste ink pad in the running water do this until no more ink comes out and the pad is White in color. Replace it your printer and you are good to go.

Epson L210 printer's ink pad is at the end of life service, how to reset

Buy a new ink pad. That's the part directly under the print head when the cartridge is parked. It's an absorbent pad that catches the ink when you clean the nozzles.

Epson stylus photo rx685 the problem is, waste ink pad in the printer is saturated, I have removed all the wested ink in the priter, but is the same problem that am experiencing. Please help me solve this...

go to to download one of their inkjet ink pad reset utilities. It may just solve your problem. I couldn't clean or replace the ink pads on my epson RX700, so I bought their special adaptor kit. It solved the problem for me. If you already have cleaned the ink pads, maybe you can just download the reset utility. I hope it works for you.

What does it mean when the power light and the printer light are blinking on an Epson c60 model?

If all the Led's/Light's are blinking/flashing on an Epson Printer, that indicates "Maintenance Request Error". The maintenance request error is actually a "Waste Ink Pad Overflow Error". Normally your remedy is to replace the Waste Ink Pads with a new ones and then reset the INTERNAL WASTE INK PAD COUNTER...The need to replace the waste ink pads is measured by the amount of ink uses, which is determined based on the number of Head Drive Pulses, accumulated in the waste ink counter. When the total quantity of ink deposited onto the waste ink pads, during cleaning and flushing, reaches the set limit, the printer generates a maintenance request error and stops printing. 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.I know this information is not much help, but at least you will know what your ERROR is.

Epson stylus 830Uink pads full not printing help

The Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. Should you decide to have a go at changing the waste ink pads, the 830 service manual can be downloaded from here:

Error message parts need servicing

The error message you are getting is because the printer thinks you have gone through too many cleaning cycles and assumes the waste ink pads at the bottom of the printer are full. sometimes this is correct but not always. the only way to know for shure is to remove the cover and physically look inside at the waste ink pads. if they are saturated with ink you can do one of three things
1 remove pads and clean in water and dry (very messy)
2 get replacement pads (probably not economical)
3 take a chance and use utility (printer don't work anyway)
If waste ink pads are full and you leave them it may cause problems later when you run more cleaning cycles as the surplus ink now has nowhere to go.
hope this helps
