Re: replace or clean ink pad and reset chip

The waste ink pads in the bottom of the printer have "timed out", and the nagging message is automatically posted. To bypass the message, power the printer down, and hold down the STOP and B&W buttons on startup.
While this will (probably) remove the message, those messy little pads need to be replaced, or it'll get ugly under there. You'll probably pay about $65-$86 for an hour of tech help to clean it up. Check on line for procedures for unbolting the base and swapping out the pads; you might save yourself a little money and learn something useful about the machine!

How to reset a printer due to printer error message

If the error code on your computer says something about "parts are at the end of life", or if the lights are flashing alternately, there's a reset for "full ink pads" available. Epson dumps ink when you clean the print head into a pad in the bottom of the printer. Ideally, that needs to be replaced and the chip that counts the ink reset. Unfortunately, the labor cost to replace the pad is more than replacing the printer.

My epson rx650 ink pad replacement.

Epson have there reset's pretty locked up, Agents have to register to gain axcess rights to software program tool that resets purge counter (waste count rset) , there are 7 pads in these printers just felt blocks that suck up ink and the electronic counter. all colours are mixed in felt so no draining guess you could wash them out but it is the counter that will stop you, wont go till reset. I have seen some after market ink chip resets but dont know if they work.

Epson about 6 months ago sealed up their tec support download system, now we have to identify agent and rep who is downloading the "eagle" software that is the Epson adj software that allows adjustment and reset of waste ink counter.

Not works

You can reset the waste ink counter using

The generic SSC utility is also available at

However, remember ink is still accumulating in the waste ink reservoir and will eventually start to leak out. To replace the waste ink pads you need to disassemble the printer.
