The printer's ink pads are at the end of their service life. Please contact Epson support.


As the error says the waste ink pads are at a point where Epson have estimated they need to be changed... However you do have a couple of options.

1. You can take it to a service centre and get them to reset the waste counter and change the pads (check that they will/have actually done this though as many just reset and leave the pads to overflow!).

2. Reset the waste counter and change the pads yourself (if the printer has replaceable pads - as many of the newest printers do) or fit an external waste ink tank like a Printer Potty.

Can't be any more specific than that though as you've not indicated which printer model you have.

Ink absorber is full and must be changed. Waste ink absorber is to be changed


You might want to try just resetting your printer rather than changing the ink pad. The warning is based on a count of how much printing is done, not a measure of full the ink pad has become. Consequences of not changing the ink pad, if truly filled to capacity, could be ink leaking from the bottom of the printer.

The following video show how to perform a reset that should work for your printer. The second video will give you an appreciation for how to change an ink pad and help you to decise whether you wish to attempt.

Trust this is helpful.

How to change waste pads on Epson R2400?


The R2400 is quite an expensive printer and changing the pads would likely knock the printhead out of gross alignment so if you really must change the pads then I'd recommend getting it done at a service center (much as it pains me to suggest it).

The only time it's really essential to get the pads changed though is if you do a lot of borderless printing as this dumps ink straight to the pads and bypasses the popular external waste ink tank modification.

My recommendation would be to consider getting the printer serviced this once and then immediately install an external waste ink system to your printer and use the SSC or A10-IPR utility from Epson to reset the waste ink counter from there on in.

All the info you need is available via this link

Hope that helps, even if it is a little late..

Epson stylus 830Uink pads full not printing help


The Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. Should you decide to have a go at changing the waste ink pads, the 830 service manual can be downloaded from here:

Yep your printer is nearing service time. This involves changing the waste ink pads and resetting it.

you could reset the printer without changing the wate ink pads but you risk damaging it

What i do is take the pads out wash them and replace them.

the waste ink pads are the pads the cartridge rest on whan itsn in neutral position

THE SERVICE MANUAL FOR YOUR PRINTER *step by step instructions in repairing it) is here

If your having an error that says "Parts inside the printer are at the end of there Service life" it means that you ink pad is full/ what you can do is change your ink pad and then download an ink pad reset utility so that you can reset the settings/ Make sure to change ink pad before you reset it becuase ink will leak if you don't change it. For the flashing lights, try to check for obstructions inside the printer if not, make sure that ink clicked in and the cover for the tray is closed
