SOURCE: Need To Replace The Waste Ink Pad on my Epson Stylus C66

I modified a little what Worldvet had done. I opened the door as if to change the ink cartridges. I first used a pair of needle nosed pliers and carefully took out the sponge type pad which is along bottom of the printhead travel lane. One will see the two center plactic guides within this lane. The sponge is very delicate, so be very gentle in removing it. It has ink residue in it so use gloves if necessary and upon removal place the sponge on a paper towel folded in triplicate so the ink does not bleed through the towel. Remember to what position it was before removal, so there is no problem when you try to replace the sponge after cleaning.
The second sponge I removed as follows: With the power on, I pressed the ink cartridge removal light (red) (far left) once. This moved the print head to the "far left", before the position to change cartridges. With the power still on and the printhead to the far left, I was able to very gently (with the same needlenose Pliers) remove the sponge under where the printhead was parked. It too is very delicate and be careful not to rip it. It too, one will find, has two plastic slots on the botton which the sponge will have to be returned into. I then turned the printer off, which caused the printer head to return to the parked position.
I took both sponges, and with Alcohol (Pharmacy type), I placed the sponges in a disposable plastic bowl and filled it with the alcohol. I gently used the needle nosed pliers (Closed) as a device to gently press on the sponges which were submerged into the alcohol. I continued to alternate up and down the sponge pads, causing the alcohol to dilute and clean the pads. When the alcohol became saturated with the ink from the pads, I took the pads out of the alcohol bowl and placed the pads on a triple folded paper towel so the remaining ink would not bleed through anything.
I then took the bowl of alcohol/ink and while I flushed the toilet and the water was going down, I emptied the alcohol down the middle of the water spout as the toilet water was completing its flush. This keeps any ink from touching any porcelion.
I then refilled the plastic bowl again with fresh alcohol and resubmersed the pads, just incase there was any ink still left in them. Upon pressing on the pads and the alcohol remained clear (indicating all the ink was removed) I again used another set of paper towels, trippled, and placed the pads onto the paper towels, and squezzed them dry. I disposed of the alcohol the same as before.
I then, first replaced the large pad onto the printhead travel lane, back into the same position, being careful that the holes and slots fits back into its proper position and the edges are tucked under the proper hooks (little plastic hooks attached to the side of the travel lane).
Upon reinstallation I pressed gently on the pad to make sure it was secure.
Replacing the second pad, I again turned on the printer and pressed the ink replacement light (red), same as before, causing the printhead to travel to the far left as before. I then very carefully replaced the second pad into the slot from which it came from.
After I made sure the second pad was secure in its proper position, I pressed the ink replacement light twice, causing the printhead to return back to the parking position. I had already reset the counter, so that was not neccessary. I returned to the computer and printed a test page to make sure the printer was working properly, at which time it was, so I therefore returned to what I was doing and the Service Warning was cleared. My fingers got a little ink; but what the heck, soap will take care of that! Good for another 20,000 pages. Hope this helps, not as bad a it sounds.

Turn off the power and look inside the machine to the right hand side. Just in front to f the print head you will see a white plastic dowel (see photo). Use something technical - like a finger, pen or screwdriver - to push this dowel in. You can then move the print head by hand to the middle of the carriage.

Once moved, turn the printer on and watch it travel back to the home position. If after returning home the dowel pops back out and does not retract itself, you will need to strip the machine out and rebuild the ASF section. Sounds hard but its just a few plastic parts to take apart and reassemble whilst looking to see if anything is broken.

Get a service manual; for the machine HERE if you need to strip it out.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: reset ink-pad counter on epson stylus photo 1400

Hi,

The simplest way to do this is to grab a copy of the A10_IPR utility that Epson distribute to their customers...

The utility is available to North American customers if you register no this site page http://www.epson.com/ipr/

The utility is also know to be available in the wild if you search for "waste ink ipr".

Just remember to scan any download using a virus and malware scanner before you attempt to use it as some utilities contain trojans or similar nasties.

Hope that helps.

1 Answer

How do I reset the sensor after a waste pad error message for an Epson 7000? The pad is not full and I need to reset so I can print.


Hi


Normally your remedy is to replace the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the "Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer, towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need a service manual, for the removal procedure.


Also Replace the following parts and reset the counters as described below:
- Waste Ink Pads
- F Box
- Pump Assembly
- Cap Assembly
- Cleaner, Head
- From Maintenance Mode 2 enter the Counter Init. Menu and initialize the Waste Ink counter and Cleaning counter.

Also check the end article at this given link for the resolution of the problem:-

Waste ink error message where is the waste ink?


The waste ink is in a pad that covers the whole bottom of the printer, underneath the print engine. You need a shop to remove all covers and the printer and replace the pads. Once changed they have diagnostic access to reset the ink counter. You can find instructions to reset the counter but soon ink will overflow and ruin the printer and possibly furniture.

What does it mean when the power light and the printer light are blinking on an Epson c60 model?


If all the Led's/Light's are blinking/flashing on an Epson Printer, that indicates "Maintenance Request Error". The maintenance request error is actually a "Waste Ink Pad Overflow Error". Normally your remedy is to replace the Waste Ink Pads with a new ones and then reset the INTERNAL WASTE INK PAD COUNTER...The need to replace the waste ink pads is measured by the amount of ink uses, which is determined based on the number of Head Drive Pulses, accumulated in the waste ink counter. When the total quantity of ink deposited onto the waste ink pads, during cleaning and flushing, reaches the set limit, the printer generates a maintenance request error and stops printing. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow and normally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer.I know this information is not much help, but at least you will know what your ERROR is.

Epson R200 printer error, Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See your printer documentation.


A Service Error where you get a message telling you that "Parts inside your printer at the end of their service life, contact your dealer for replacement", or "Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement, call your service company", is normally a Maintenance Request Error. The maintenance request error is actually a Waste Ink Ink Pad Error and usually your remedy is to replace the Waste Ink Pad/Pads with a new one/ones and then reset the Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow and normally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer.Some people actually wash the ink out of the old pads, by holding them under running cold water. Then they simply dry them out and reinstall them back into their printer. The choice on what to actually do, is yours to make. I would at least recommend getting that Waste Ink Counter reset procedure and performing it first, to make sure your printer will then work.

Try this reset app

Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement. Contact your dealer...... epson stylus c40ux both lights are flashing ... won't print


A service error where you get a message telling you that "Parts inside your printer at the end of their service life, contact your dealer for replacement", or "Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement, call your service company", is normally a Maintenance Request Error. The maintenance request error is actually a Waste Ink Ink Pad Error and usually your remedy is to replace the waste ink pad/pads with a new one/ones and then reset the Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow and normally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer. You can see exploded parts diagrams for most epson ink jet printers and can also check on possible parts ordering, by Compass Micro Inc, at http://www.compassmicro.com/parts_select.cfm . Some people actually wash the ink out of the old pads, by holding them under running cold water. Then they simply dry them out and reinstall them back into their printer. The choice on what to actually do, is yours to make. I would at least recommend getting that waste ink counter reset procedure and performing it first, to make sure your printer will then work. There is an "Epson Stylus C60 Printer Information Page", that also includes the C40 & C42 series, that you can view at http://epsonhelp.freehttp.com/C60.html . It does have a section on the left side you can click-on, titled WASTE INK PAD SERVICING and also a section titled HOUSING REMOVAL, that will be of some help to you, if you want to try the needed servicing. However, you will still need to actually reset that Internal Waste Ink Counter, to clear the actual service error condition. You may be able to reset that waste ink counter, using the SSC SERVICE UTILITY available at http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/sscserve.exe . Unfortunatly, that utility only works using a windows operating system. You can check and see if your particular epson printer is compatible, by going to http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html ...Here's some previously posted info that may also help. To reset the error download this utility: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html . Once installed run the program and configure it, closing the main window and right clicking the icon in the tray area, from there choose Configure and select your printers model. After configuration, select Protection counter -> Reset protection counter, it should be able to clear the error message. If that does not actually work, then the only suggestion I can give is to perform a soft-reset before resetting counter. Remove also the Epson status agent, it detects errors and it may hinder communication with the printer, then reboot your pc. As profile choose the one sscservice didn't use after autoconfiguration, check for printer response. Remember that you should also clean the waste ink pads located at the printer bottom. For a more in-depth procedure go to his site at http://myprinter.altervista.org/simplefaq/mysimplefaq.html#counter "....Unfortunately, that ssc service utility may not actually work on all epson printers and not on all operating systems, so you will have to check it out for yourself. Just in case that source does not work: You may then need to go on-line to try and locate the actual reset procedure, to buy and download to actually reset that waste ink counter

Printer blinks alternate red and yellow lights, error in commun


If both lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C43 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40, 41, 42, 43,or 44 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.

Please don't hesitate to report back if you have any other queries.

Epson C43SX communication error


It is presumed the 6 posts in this problem are all from the same person. If one (or more) isn't, and my response below doesn't help, would you you start a new separate post on your particular problem.

A solitary blinking red light means that the ink level in one of your cartridges is low, but printing can continue normally until the ink runs out, at which point the red light becomes permanently on. You must now change the ink cartridge before the print will work again.

If the green light is flashing at the same time as the red one, this means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C43 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40,42,44,60,62 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

The reference manual is at

http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/ij/stylusc43/REF_G/INDEX.HTM

which provides good information on the meanings of the error lights.

Please report back with further information if the above advice doesn't help.
