When the ink cartridges park there is an absorbent pad that catches ink when the printer is in the cleaning mode. Put the printer on the clean mode and when the cartridges move off the park position, unplug the printer (do not turn the printer off with the power switch). Now you have access to the pad. It's full of ink, so be careful of the mess it's going to make. I use a toothpick or a straightened out paper clip to stab the pad to get it out of the printer. Once out, just wash the excess ink out then put the pad back. IMPORTANT: push the cartridges back to the right or the park position before plugging in the printer.

How to reset epson t 60 printer


Depends on what you mean by "reset".
If you're referring to the waste ink counters, you can either:
  1. Locate a copy of the AdjProg service utility and use that to reset the waste counters
    Note: Will not work on MacOS or Windows 8

    ... or...

  2. Download the WICReset (for windows) or iWIC (for MacOS) and purchase a WICReset key to reset the waste ink counter that way.

Whatever you do, remember that resetting doesn't deal with the waste ink inside the pads so you should be looking at changing the pads (not easy to do yourself) or fitting an external waste ink tank like a printer potty.

My printer is epson tx650.the problomis that it say 'the printer's ink pad is at the end of their service life'. please assist me with the solution.says RAKITA


Sadly the other solution is the usual corporate party line regarding "Parts at the end of their service life" and is intended to encourage printer owners to purchase new printers.

The reality is quite different.. Epson printer are generally capable of upwards of 3 to 10 years or service with minimal care unless the printer is being hammered 24/7 with almost constant printing, which is very unlikely.

Waste pads however are an achilles heel that do need some form of action to either replace or work-around to resolve.

The options available are either:
1. Go to a service centre where it is indeed prohibitively expensive to have the printer disassembled to replace the pads and have the waste counter reset.

OR..

2. Get an external waste ink kit to redirect any waste ink to an external tank (it doesn't remove the current pad contents) and obtain the relevant tool (either a compatible AdjProg service program) or WICReset tool with a key (one needed per reset) so you can reset the printers internal waste ink counter.

The cost of the latter option is around 20-25(GPB) total (including shipping) so compared to the tooth sucking Epson Customer "Care" option it's not exactly rocket science as to which is more cost effective.


Please ignore the rubbish about other parts being near the end of their service life... About the only other thing to note is that the printer gears might need a little grease but beyond that and flimsy plastic paper guides the printer can easily last 5 years with a little care.

Not all the ink pulled from the ink-cartridges gets sprayed onto the paper.
Some of it ends-up in an absorbative pad.
Eventually, those pads get saturated with ink, and need to be "serviced".
Take the printer to any qualified computer-technician, for that servicing.
