Epson 2200 printer ink pads

I just purchased a used Espon 2200. Seemed packed well. Set it up, turned it on, all the lights are flashing and it won't print. Contacted Epson support and they said "The error condition that you are experiencing is the INK PADS." Is replacing the ink pads something I can do on my own? Where can I purchase the ink pads?

Espon printer's ink pads are at the end, how do i reset or fix it? thank you


Try unplugging the printer for a few minutes. Then plug it back in. When it runs through the initial set up it should reset.

Espon T 11 has "Service


Usually when you receive this error its either the waste ink pads,has already to much ink on it where the inks go to when you clean the printhead.
Try going in this site http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html and download the SSC service utility. then reset all the counters. After that the printer will be working fine, but there is a possibility that the excess ink will leak out on your printer. Hope this would help

Hi expert of ESPON CX4400 machine: after I did change a new black ink pack on it, why the on and ink light flash so i couldn't let it work?


Ink cartridge is not seated. Take it out and push in until you hear a click. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Epson 2200 ink replacement light stays on


I had the same problem with the light black and light magenta as well. It took trying only one new cartridge with the light magenta before it worked.
The light black took 4 new cartridges before it worked. I had called the Epson support center on this problem and after going through suggestions they made that did not work, I told the guy I had another new cartridge on hand. He said to go ahead and try it. This time the printer worked. He took my name and address and said the other cartridges were faulty. Epson is sending me new replacement cartridges at no charge.

I have an Epson 2200 and the Light black ink light is on even thought I have a new cartridge in there. This is the second cartridge I've tried. Same thing. Any suggestions?


this means that your printer wast pad is full this is how you can reset your printer
  1. Turn off the printer power and unplug the power cord from the wall. Disconnect the computer interface cable at the back of the printer.
  2. After one minute reattach the power plug to the wall, but don’t reattach the computer cable.
  3. Hold down the ROLL and the PAPER ADVANCE buttons simultaneously.
  4. Turn the printer on. after 2 blinks, all the ink lights come on, then release the buttons being held down.
  5. Press and hold the ROLL button for 10 seconds.
  6. Release the ROLL button and the printer will initialize, which resets the Waste Ink Pad Counter.
  7. Once initialization is complete, turn the printer power off.
  8. Reconnect the interface cable.
  9. Turn the printer on and print a document.
  10. make sure you have got new wast pads in

EPSON 2200 - Waste Ink Pad Replacement


You can replace the pads yourself.... I wouldn't really mess with it though. There are other ways Google search "Waste Ink Epson 2200" to see how to setup an external tank.. I have mine setup this way and its been no problem.... If you're set on taking them out remove the screws from the sides and middle and the bottom will drop away and reveal the pads.

2200 locked up


disconnect the printer from the computer - power off printer - check for obstructions / torn papers - power on

if paper light is still on/flashing and pressing it does not do anything - you got a hardware issue - call manufacturer for reccomendation

this might help also - http://www.epson.com/loyalty
