Question about Epson Stylus 1000 InkJet Printer
I have just got my printer back after having the waste ink pads replaced, I did print 1 CD label & then colour bad on next so I replaced with Epson cartridges & printed another 12 or so, next day I changed cartridges to generic as didn't need best ink. Tried to do CD's - the tray kept ejecting with message "not set correctly - reload & press maintenance button" - I then tried to print on paper but the paper fed in & then I got message "paper jam etc. Tried all I could think of, turned off & on numerous times, checked all - next got General Error, told by friend to hold power/maintenance/stop & get LCD screen message -
CLEAR WASTE INK CTR.
Also have removed far left ink pad, washed/dried/replaced
Hope you can help,
Those generic refills are not worth i, plus they may void the warranty. Try removing them and cleaning the little circuit board sensor. Make sure leaked ink hasnt covered them.

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.
