SOURCE: Need to change ink pad. Where to buy and how to fix? thanks. Beverly

Hi Beverley

You will need the C86 Service Manual to help you remove the printer top cover and Automatic Sheet Feeder (ASF). The C63/64/65/66/83/84/85/86 service manual can be downloaded from here:

You don't need to buy replacement waste pads - just wash out the old ones and dry them (use a bucket and latex gloves if you want to avoid destroying your sink and nicely manicured hands). Note their order and orientation as you remove them otherwise refitting can be a bit confusing.

You will also need to reset the waste ink protection counter by using the SSC utility - download from:

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type, then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose Protection Counter. Check the current count value - if it is greater than the limit shown it will confirm
this is your problem. Then choose reset to set it to zero. Turn the printer off then back on again. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

Please post a new comment if youe require further assistance.

SOURCE: Where can I buy the waste ink absorber pads for both printers?

The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it after you cleaned it or it will still not work, you may not have to get inside to clean it try this first to reset it.
Reset CANON PIXMA IP5000 printer To reset the counter or to find out about it’s reading you have to use the service mode.
Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Need replacement ink pad

I cant see what country you're in, but the following company in the UK can supply most Brother spares:

Word of caution: replacing parts like ink pads/waste ink containers on Brother machines isn't intended to be a "user replaceable part"; the machine has to be significantly dismantled in order to get to them.

Brother parts are very expensive, and their authorised agents' service charges are very high, so it's not unusual for Brother machines to be rendered uneconomic to maintain when these type of parts need replacing.

Need a user manual for adding machine EC-3017

The feed roller turns to mush on these old calculators. I suspect that is the problem with this one. You might get it to work if you replace the mushy roller by a new piece of rubber tubing. However, you have to be mechanically inclined to take the printer apart enough to get to the mushy roller. I have this exact same calculator in my hand right now and when I folded printer paper on a 45 degree angle and forced it through the printer until I could pull it through, the paper was gooed up down the center where the mushy roller rubbed off onto the paper. The calculator still works great electronically!

The printer's ink pads are nearing the end of their service life. Please contact Epson support.

That means the cleaning pads are old and need replacing. Contact Epson.
I had that and it worked out cheaper to buy a new printer.

Everytime printer is turned on it prints a test page. Any ideas?


This may be long but I think its true Ok please read.
Yes it will do and why.
It cleans the heads every time you switch on and also prints out a test page so you can see it printing ok but you are going to loss lots of ink its made to do this, so it will use your ink up fast this is how they make there money not just by selling printers, it’s the after sales of selling there inks that they make there big money.

In some supermarkets you can even buy a printer for as little as £20 and most of us will think that’s cheap and will buy it, yes there will be ink in it but very little ink and when you go to buy some new ink for it your mouth will drop it will be around £15.99 for the black and £19.99 for the colour then you will think god that is £38.98 and is more than you paid for your printer in the first place, and some inks cost lots even more than that, so then we will say oh well I got to have to buy it or the new printer will not be any use.

They make more money on selling there inks, and inks are not cheap, so in a matter of time we all would have paid lots of money just for the ink.

Also every time it cleans the heads and makes a test print, have you ever thought where the left over ink is going it’s going onto a pad to absolve the waste ink inside your printer.

Think about it, it’s got to go some where and where does the waste ink goes it is screwed down inside your printer and when that ink pad is full the printer is going to gave you an error code number or it will say (waste pad full) and your printer will stop working, and they have not done it in any easy way for us to clean the pads out, the printer got to be opened up all with the screwdriver and also have to take some wires off inside and some printers not even got screws on them so it can not be opened so most of us will just buy a new one again.
I really not know why they not just make a flip lid on the printers so we can open and clean the pads out or replace them, but saying that then of cause they would lose out.
Mind you not all printers are like this but most printers are, and we all like to own a printer.

So next time you going to buy a printer try not to be in a hurry and ask them how much the ink going to cost you when it runs out and ask them if it dos a test print out every time it starts up and ask them about if and when the pads are full of waste ink is there a flip lid on it so you can open so you can clean the pads out or replace them I not think there will be any or any pads you can buy to replace, and I not think that they can gave you that answer there isn’t any they will tell you it will have a instructions book inside that tells you all need to know.

Yes I got a printer and I have learnt my lessons on buying printers so now I do look at them as much as I can before buying and see how much ink will cost me and yes it has a pad inside mine screwed down I have not seen one yet myself with a lid on them I think this is how they all are so we got to put up with it.

What I do I never turn off my printer so it will not do a test print every time it starts up, I always lave it on standby I find its cheaper it lasts longer and if I need to clean the heads from time to time I can clean the heads manually from the tools tab witch is in the driver when I go to print my docs.

My canon pixma ip 1600 has a full ink absorber---is there any way to fix this or do i need to buy a new printer-thanks

Try to remove the absorber (wear rubber gloves--very messy) and wash it in hot water and detergent. You can buy the replacement part if you don't want to try to wash it.

Need to replace ink pads for epson stylus rx620.printer. Where to buy and how to replace?

You don't need to buy the pad. Just wash with hot water. Is there a message to replace waste ink pad?. You need to reset waste ink counter. Use SSC utility to reset it. Extend outlet pipe to outside. You don't need clean pad again. If you wish to wash or replace pad, you must open case and diasemble all mechanics. Find SSC at And printer diagram at

I always clean my inkjet printers using isoprophl alcohol. It dries quickly and helps remove the ink. Try that first.
