How to access waste pads in Epson rx425

Followed links to ssc utility and reset counter, printer now functioning fully. Where within the printer are waste pads located and how to extract, wash and replace?

    Have managed to download full service manual from printer1.blogspot.com. Which suggests removal of document cover/ paper support assembly/stacker/scanner unit/panel unit/ housing upper/printer mechanism before being able to access the waste ink pads, about 12 pads in total.

    Think the answer may have understated the job a touch, but appreciate the speed of reply.



    Regards,

    Garry

Both the red and green light are on and blinking.What is wrong with my Epson C60?


kiryakitsa1 You should download the SSC Service Utility as pineworks says. Read the instructions and warnings. Go to Reset counter protection and press reset. You may recieve a warning about replacing your waste ink pads. I have always reset the protection counter without replacing the waste ink pads and I have never had a problem. If you see ink drainage then you should replace the waste ink pads and then reset the protection counter. I have never had a problem with ink heads and I have done this many times.

How to reset 73/91 Cartridges for Epson CX5500


SSC utility is used for resetting waste ink counter, not for ink level counter (chip at ink tank). If you wish to reset ink level counter (chip), you must use hardware resetter, or use CISS chip with autoreset function.

Stopped printing service required? how to get around


Ok, the key problem here is that your printer has indicated the waste ink pads in the printer need changing because they're full of waste ink.

Resolving this is a two pronged attack.

1. Download the SSC utility from here:
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Install then run.

Under configuration choose you RX425 printer then in the "printer model" field choose the "Epson Stylus CX4600(4500)/CX36x0(3500)/RX42x(430)/MP-A700" option.

Click on the top right X as if you were closing the utility and you'll see a little printer icon appear in the system tray (series of icons in the bottom right hand corner of your screen usually).

Right click on this and locate the "Protection Counter" and under this the "Reset Protection Counter" and "Clear counter overflow"

Then turn off your printer and turn it back on again. You should be able to print again now.


2. BUT... You still have a printer with close to full waste pads so you need to deal with that. WARNING: Ignore it and expect to get a puddle of waste ink flowing out of your printer at some point!

Various instructions for dealing with this are available here:
http://www.continuousink.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4128

... and you can opt for a pre-built kit or just do a DIY with parts you've sourced yourself.

Hope that helps :)

Finally figured out the problem.
1. Took waste pad out and cleaned with paper towel. Couldn't find a replacement waste pad, so needed to clean it instead.
2. Downloaded SSC Service Utility software (free) in order to "Reset the Protection Counter". This is an option within the utility.

Printer must be on when running the SSC utility.

Good luck!

Epson stylus 1400 service utility SSC


The free SSC utility which will reset the waste ink pad protection counter in most Epson inkjet printers can be downloaded from
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml. Remember though, if you don't change the ink pads, there will be an increasing danger of ink leakage from your printer, particularly if you tip it up for any reason - VERY messy, and it can clog up your printer mechanisms.
