Most likely your flush box is full of ink, the pads will need to be replaced by a service center.

The purge counter needs to be reset to zero. it is trying to say that your ink filter box is full and it may not actually be full and you may get away with resetting the purge counter instructions listed below.
Fax models with numerical keypads: press *, 2, 8, 6, and 4 keys within 2 seconds . (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence with two seconds, press stop key to try again)
other non fax models: press the menu/set button and black start keys. next press the up arrow key 4 times to enter maintenance mode
2). press the 8 then 0 keys in the intial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machines log information list (function 80)
3) press the black start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is around the 25 item in the list
4)then press 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge counter to zero
5) press the stop/exit key top return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.
6) press the 9 key twice to return to standby state
You may still need a new ink filter box which is easy enough to install. I found that this message can appear several times before needing to replace you may find more or less so check that the filter is not full. You can do this by lifting off the scanne top and undoing a few screws. your local pc/printer shop will change a filter for you without the need to pay a lot of money for a service engineer.
