Epson l200 servce required problem


Never had one of this series, but I have went through about 25 Epson printers and the message you refer to means your waste ink pad needs to be cleaned or replaced.
To get rid of the message do a search on "how to reset waste ink pad counter for Epson l200" and you will find a utility that does what you want.

How can I change the foam pad that absorbes ink? What part is that called?


Hello

Its better to just remove them clean them up and replace it in the printer, because usually some printers require a reset code to re-set the waste ink counter. If the counter is not re-set there will come a time when then printer will refuse to print.

Here is how to clean your waste ink absorber;

Open the printer and locate the waste ink absorber near the ink cartridge.

Remove the absorber pad and hold it in cold water while squeezing the ink out. It would be wise to wear gloves while doing this, because the ink in the pad will leave stains.

Use paper towels to dry the waste ink absorber pad. Let it dry completely before installing it back in the printer.

Reinstall the ink pad into the printer and run a test page to make sure it works.

Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. what can I do


The likely cause is that the waste ink absorber pad is full.

Remove the pad (dis-assembly required) and rinse the waste ink out till the pad is very light grey. This takes a lot of rinsing and squeezing. Finding a replacement pad is often more work though. After cleaning, let dry thouroughly.

Then re-assemble and find the service/maintenance software to run to reset the waste ink counter in the printer.

How to replace ink absorber



I suggest that instead of replacing , first try cleaning the ink absorber unless of course they are completely worn out.
Most Canon ip printers have similar construction there :Try as below:

Two absorber pads are located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges. With the printer on, lift the top to expose the cartridges. They will automatically move out of the way. You can move them to the left side by hand if the printer is not on. They each sit in a rubber socket. The pads can be removed and cleaned.
Take the pads out of the socket with tweezers. Clean them with warm water. It is best to use a spray bottle (on stream) and blast it through the pad until it is white. Sometimes just putting it under a running tap will be sufficient. If there is ink in the socket after taking the pad out, it can be cleaned up with a paper towel. Put the pads back into the socket and you have successfully cleaned the ink absorbers.
