Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have just repaired my DX7450 (faulty power supply) and I thought ''whilst the printer is dismantled, I'll just check out the waste ink pads''. The problem is, I cannot see any way to access the waste ink pads (other than see the waste ink pipe through the tiny rear access panel - which is no use for anything really). To get to the ink pads in the bottom of the INNER plastic casing seems to require complete disassembly of the printer mechanism. This is not practicable without special re-assembly tools/jigs I think. Does this mean that the DX7450 (and similar models) is junk once the waste ink pads protection counter reaches its limit? Or am I missing something? No-one seems to have a copy of the service manual - for free or for sale.
For the Epson C62 the Service Manual says that in order to get at the Waste Pads "Release total seven hooks of the Upper housing by using the precision screwdriver etc."
But how to do this is by no means clear. I imagine it's the same problem with your DX7450. Have you got any further with this?

Even if you had the manual there would be no mention as to how to replace the waste ink pads! This is a common problem to all ink-jet printers. The best way to clean it is to just get the carriage out of the way by pulling the power while it is initializing and wipe the pad with a flat head screwdriver to remove the built-up black ink. The black ink is organic material & will build up as the color inks are dyes and will not build up!
Use warm water on a paper towel to clean up any messes made.
