Question about Epson Stylus Pro 9600 InkJet Printer
SOURCE: ink pad woes
Sorry to be a few days in getting back to you. We had a death in the family and settling all the affairs has occupied most of my time for most of this past month or so. All is settled now, except for the memories.
As to your question, there is some variance from one maker to another and from one model to another.
I believe in your case, excess ink is carried out a flow tube to a reservoir and after printing a fixed number of times the Epson software gives you a warning message that the ink tank is full and to empty it.
Is this the case in your model? You are not seeing absorber pads?
When the print head cartridge is at rest a platform rises to seal off the print heads and prevent them from drying out. It is this platform that has the excess ink overflow tube that runs to a reservoir.
So, let me know if I'm spot on or way off base and if the later, give me a hint as to what you are seeing and what the problem happens to be. I'll be glad to help you get through this and if need be I can bring another expert into this discussion.

Are you getting an error code or message when you try to print that the ink pads need to be cleaned again?
I just need this feedback to point you in the right direction and not just assume any thing. Thanks, and thanks for using FixYa. I'm here to help.

Sounds like you knocked the vacuum pipe off at the pump cap when you had it apart. Take it apart again and check the vacuum pipe for connection, blockages and being trapped between cases when you reassembled it.
