The machine counts every dot it prints and estimates when pads should be cleaned then it shutdown to prevent spillage, athough you've cleaned the pads the machine needs to be reset by being connected to Epson's Eagle Download, which they have made very secure from the anyone but Epson agents.

    Modern Disposable world we live in, they sell a expensive item cheap and sell the cheap nessesity expensive. Any repairs on these printers cost more than the machine's worth.

    What peolpe end up doing 2 things, using cheap ink which is bad news and stocking up of needed product, then the machine breaks and they always seem to take the fix the machine because I've got new product route,

    Always best option with inkjets is buy new with good warranty- keep in mind that after warranty they are uneconomical to repair.

    use gen inks or if you really trully must then use a very premium other ink that is suited for the job

A printer's ink pad is at the end of its service.

The waste ink absorber pad under the ink head parking station is full of ink, or the printer assumes it is. Usually you have to disassemble a substantial portion of the printer to get it out. Often, you can wash out the pad with soap and water, rinse well, let it dry and put it back in. Most printers have some sort of reset procedure you need to follow to cancel the ink pad warning and get back to normal operation.

Where is the ink absorber located

The ink absorber in the MP160 is located in the rear righthand corner in the base of the printer. It is a thick felt pad which gradually gets saturated with ink which is sucked from the cartridges each time you hear the whirring noise before printing. I dismantled my printer once and washed and dried the pad before putting it all back together again. If you ignore the "waste ink adsorber full" warning for too long there is a risk excess ink will leak from the base of the printer. Dismantling the printer to get at the absorber pad is a major exercise. Some newspaper placed under the printer will buy you some time and stop damage to your desktop.

The printer is giving the massage that the printer's ink pads are at the end of their service life

Check your printer model and search for resetter application for your printer. Resetter application can reset the waste ink pad to default settings so that you can print again.Try to clean your waste ink pad by removing the foam and wash it using a powder or bar detergent and hang it to dry. When the foam are already dry put it back again to its original. Then test for printing! Have a nice day!

EPSON R545 waste ink saturated

You need to reset your printer. Goolgle search for "indoreset for rx595" and download it. That is the program you need to use to reset the waste ink pad counter back to zero.

I have a warning that my ink pad is saturated and needs replacing contack dealer for assistance (help)

Ink means pad for waste ink nearly full. Epson program read and count all waste ink from head cleaning and ink charge. Next, you need reset waste ink counter, and replace or washing pad. You can extend outlet pipe to outside of printer, so next time you don't need replace pad again.

EPSON r360

Are you sure it is staurated or it just the printer showing the error. Apparently there is a usage timer in the printer firmware that will display this error after so many hours of usage. Epson has a small program to reset this error but warns that if the pad is saturated it may leak out onto you table/desk. My R220 displayed this error and I reset it with Epsons resetter program. If you are not sure of the pad, I would put something under the printer just in case it is saturated and leaks. I don't think you can buy replacement pads from Epson as they say the printer is disposable. I also don't know what material the pads are made of but I have never seen one overflo in all the years I have used Epson printers. There is always a first time so if I were resetting mine I would defininately put something under the printer to watch for leaking ink. The program to reset the ink counter is EpsonIPRUtility.A10.exe and is available at

Error message parts need servicing

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
