Changing ink reservor on Epson rx620

I received an error message that the parts are at the last of its life and poeple from epson told me it looked to be my ink reservor that need to be clean out and reset , how can i do it myself.? Haven't solved how to replace the ink waste pad yet on my Epson RX620 but through FixYa, I did find out how to reset my printer so the error message "parts are near end of service life" no longer appears. Hold down the "Stop", "B&W" and "On" buttons. You get a black and white message in the display that tells you to turn the power off. Do this, then turn it back on and no more error message. My printer actually had stopped printing altogether and this fixed it but I still want to replace the part that triggered the message.

Re: changing ink reservor on Epson rx620

Are you often to used refilled cartridge? That's possible your waste tank has been fulled. Hold down the 'Stop' AND the 'B&W' button while powering up. This seems to clear the error message and restore the printer. Worked for me--dunno how long it will last tho!

Please rate me SOLVED.

I see the Epson site is a lot of help?When a color stops working and you know the cartridge is new or full you have to trace from the cartridge to the nozzle.The nozzles can be soaked in tap water to loosen deposits,then cleaned with a non metal instrument.Toothpick,toothbrush and the like.You have to look at the feed lines or tubes too,the ink will dry or thicken in them.Last but not least,Epson's site will let you contact them with specific problems.
I'm sorry this is all the help I can offer?

Possible to soak up excess ink on the 'pads'?

Hi Macddcam...

You have to remember that the pads are designed to be ultra absorbent so it's going to be very difficult to get them to give up their ink unless you have something even more absorbent.

Trying to mop up or syringe out pads is really a bit of a losing proposition in terms of time, effort and ink mess so really the smarter option is to redirect the waste flow (ie: install an external tank) and allow the ink base (ie: water in the RX620) to slowly evaporate off over the course of the printers life..

If you need information on the process for the RX620 then you can find it here

You will need a rescue from This will give all you need to pull the machine apart and clean the ink pads in the base of machine. You will also need the special bit of software they include to enable you to reset the counter in the printers firmware. Once all done you will be right as rain. If the machine is within its warranty period Epson will fix it.

RX620 Error Message

This message comes up after about 40000 registers on a use counter. I posted what I did on the Epson RX620 forum. Look it up. Basically I bought a repair manual on the net for about $10.00 I used this to take the RX620 apart down to the waste ink catch pads which I removed cleaned dried and replaced. It was a long job the first time and you need the manual in order to figure out how to do it. My pads were only about 1/3 used but I live in a dry climate. So punch those override buttons and keep going. You might put a plastic sheet or pan under the printer to catch the waste ink when it actually does leak out.
