SOURCE: Waste ink absorber almost full-Canon S900 inkjet

It doesn't matter if you change (wash) the waste ink pad absorber or not, if you reset the error code il will work ok. The waste ink sponge can be full if you had a lot of cleaning done since using the printer, fact is that latest after the error appears the second time, you had to clean it.

  • 1) Figure out how to open the printer by removing the side and inside top plastic panels. Just look at the thing and use your brain. Its all pressure clipped in place, no screws (at least on the S900 and similar models, probably still the same on this years models.) Look for slots and triangles on the 960.
  • On the i960 you'll have to remove the power buttons assembly on the front- take out the two screws, unplug the internal white electro connector plug CAREFULLY, then you can undo the last clip that holds the top in place.
  • 2) No need to remove the ink cartridges in this process- so don't. The mechanism is held down in place in the case by two screws at the very bottom on the outside bottom of the metal chassis inside. Remove these screws then lift up the mechanism. It should lift out fairly easily, but remain attached by wires-- just place it on the top edge of the case.
  • 3) You'll see the blackened (from waste ink) felt pads on the bottom. WEAR GLOVES-- this is skin indelible ink, the only thing that will get it off your hands is CLOROX. Period. There are two skinny pads that sit on top of a larger pad. Note how they fit together.
  • 4) Lift the pads out and rinse out thorough in a sink until very little or no ink comes out. There's no need to use chemical or soap cleaners, just use plain water from the tap and the spray nozzle. Keep rinsing and squeezing the pads, but don't twist them like a towel, squeeze and fold in half however to really get the ink out.
  • Lay flat in the sun for a few hours to dry. Use a hairdryer to get the last bit of moisture out then replace in the printer, and put everything back together.
  • 5) RESET the printer electronics, so you won't get the stupid "waste ink tank full" message any more.

    Turn off the printer.
    Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button.
    Release the RESUME button, then press and release the RESUME button two more times in succession. (youre still holding the POWER button during this). The printer mechanics will move momentarily.
    You are now in Service mode.
    Pressing the RESUME key will select a function; for example, pressing RESUME 4 times will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate color with each key press.
    1. service/factory test printout, including ink sensor check
    2. EEPROM info printout
    3. EEPROM initialization
    4. Clear the waste-ink counter
    5. Printer model setting. (more selections beyond this- leave this alone)
    After selecting mode, press the POWER button to commit the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Pressing the POWER button again turns off the printer for a restart.

    SOURCE: Epson DX7450 won t charge ink

    In some cases the chip on the cartridge will work for multiple models but this doesn't always mean that ALL cartridge colours will be the same.

    It sounds like you either have the wrong magenta type or you have a cartridge which is incompatible. I'd look for a supplier that can confirm 100% that they have the correct chip for your printer and try that.

    I should warn you that you may find that fixing the magenta provides you with a warning on a different cartridge as sometimes the chips interact with the printer in rather odd ways that give false positives or error indicators.. So be prepared.

    Hope this helps somewhat.

    Printer ink

    New printers are putting microchips in them so you cant use compatable inks ,so make sure when you buy one that it definately accepts compatable ink or it will cost you a fortune , or you can take it to a computer shop and they will fit a microchip so it can accept compatable ink.

    Clear an F4 error message

    Error F4 is caused by a loss of voltage on the printhead!
    The printhead must be replaced, and it costs alot, also is so difficult to change, so much as some printer technicians don't accept to repair them.
    Sorry, but you need a new printer

    If you buy genuine ink cartridges take an EPSON printer
    If you prefer to buy compatible ink cartridges look for a Canon ;)

    Printer doesnot accept the black ink cartridge,

    Please perform the following steps:

    1. ‘Turn on the power’ to the unit and raise the ‘cartridge access cover’. The cartridges will move towards the ‘center’.

    2. After the carriage (the cartridge holder) stops, unplug the ‘power cord’ from the back of the unit. This will keep the cartridges from moving back to the ‘capping station’.

    3. Remove the cartridge(s) from the carriage.

    4. Using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth or a cotton swab lightly moistened with distilled, filtered, or bottled water and gently clean the ‘face’, ‘edges’ and the ‘electrical contacts’. (Change to a clean cotton swab as needed).

    CAUTION: Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles on the bottom of the print.

    5. Inside the All-in-One, clean the contacts in the print carriage with a slightly dampened soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Allow the electrical contacts to dry completely.

    The information provided above is also available in a graphical format at:

    Note: Please do not insert the cartridge before performing the steps given below.

    Check if the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, please perform a power-cycle on the unit.

    1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.

    2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.

    3. Wait at least 20 seconds, then plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.

    4. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.

    5. Press the power button to turn the printer on.

    Now verify the result.

    If the issue persists, please replace the cartridge and verify the result.

    Dead printer after replacing Cartridges in Kodak ESP3 AiO Printer

    You should never use a COMPATIBLE ink cartridge or a ink cartrdge from different manufacturer......if you do then you are damaging your printer yourself and no one can help you not even kodak tech support.........try using genuine ink cartridge if you look on side of the ink cartridge then you will see a code which will indicate if its genuine or not try and match those codes with the codes that i will mention if it does not match then its not genuine...........

    My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks

    My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
    Thanks Padgy
