Question about Printers & Copiers
there is an absorbent pad in the bottom of the printer starting under where the print head rests, this is to absorb the ink that the printer sprays out during a cleaning cycle or a startup cycle.
the manufacturer knows the capacity of the pad and how much ink they spray out during the cycling, they keep track of this because when the pad becomes over full the ink will start to puddle under the printer making a very nasty mess.
sometimes one can order a replacement pad from the manufacturer and replace it yourself, sometimes they wont sell it to an individual because the printer needs to be disisembled to change it.
if they send you the pad it usually comes with directions on replacement and re-setting of message.
