Question about Epson Stylus C46 InkJet Printer
If i use the utility do i need to replace the ink pads as well having same problem as above.
The error message you are getting is because the printer thinks you have gone through too many cleaning cycles and assumes the waste ink pads at the bottom of the printer are full. sometimes this is correct but not always. the only way to know for shure is to remove the cover and physically look inside at the waste ink pads. if they are saturated with ink you can do one of three things
1 remove pads and clean in water and dry (very messy)
2 get replacement pads (probably not economical)
3 take a chance and use utility (printer don't work anyway)
If waste ink pads are full and you leave them it may cause problems later when you run more cleaning cycles as the surplus ink now has nowhere to go.
hope this helps
