Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
It depends on how much the sponge have soaked up but you may still reuse it. I found the link below very useful when I had the same issue. The english text are just towards the lower part of the page.
Another solution is to divert the waste in to a container but this may have implication to your printer's warranty.

Hi, just look in your manual, you will need to empty the ink sponge.

Hi Frances... Your problem is simple... all you need to do is to reset the printer's print counter... your printer is programed to be serviced after a certain number of print count. You probably have reached the limit. All you need to do to get rid of the Sponge is full message is to reset the printer's print counter. pls visit http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and download the couter reset tool. (you need to reset the waste ink counter)
Take note, you may need to change the sponge that absorbs waste ink so that your printer's waste ink storage will not overflow. You can have a technician do this for you or you can just probably search the forums from the link that I gave you.
I've had the same problem before but this tool helped me, i do hppe that it helps you too. have a great day

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To address your concern and reset all counters, download and install Epson SSC Utility. Of course the reset / bypass must be done at your discretion and it would not matter whether the ink waste pads have been replaced or not.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
