Ink means pad for waste ink nearly full. Epson program read and count all waste ink from head cleaning and ink charge. Next, you need reset waste ink counter, and replace or washing pad. You can extend outlet pipe to outside of printer, so next time you don't need replace pad again.

The message Waste ink pad in the printer is saturated is coming up. Can this be fixed by us or does it need to be taken to a dealer


It sounds like the printers area for extra ink blow off is full. Take it into a shop and see if they can order you a replacement part, or check the epson website for one.

EPSON R545 waste ink saturated


You need to reset your printer. Goolgle search for "indoreset for rx595" and download it. That is the program you need to use to reset the waste ink pad counter back to zero.

The printer head needed cleaning so I used isopropyl alcohol the excess of which leaked onto the pads. Can I manually empty a saturated ink pad?


They are normally quite hard to get to you might have to disassemble most of the printer. Also if you do this it might be a good idea to replace the ink soakup pads with new ones if they are too saturated.

C43 stylus does'nt print


What rotorcrafts omits to say, is that this has occurred because the waste ink protection counter was warning you that your waste ink pads are saturated with ink and should be replaced. If you don't do this, 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.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help. It is a pretty simple job once someone explains how to get the case apart!

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 C40,42,44 etc 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.

Are you sure it is staurated or it just the printer showing the error. Apparently there is a usage timer in the printer firmware that will display this error after so many hours of usage. Epson has a small program to reset this error but warns that if the pad is saturated it may leak out onto you table/desk. My R220 displayed this error and I reset it with Epsons resetter program. If you are not sure of the pad, I would put something under the printer just in case it is saturated and leaks. I don't think you can buy replacement pads from Epson as they say the printer is disposable. I also don't know what material the pads are made of but I have never seen one overflo in all the years I have used Epson printers. There is always a first time so if I were resetting mine I would defininately put something under the printer to watch for leaking ink. The program to reset the ink counter is EpsonIPRUtility.A10.exe and is available at www.Epson.com
