Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Thanks to MrDave who helped me get my 6600 back running again! You also suggested now to change the waste pads. Where do I get new ones and how do I do this change?
Changing waste ink pads is a messy job, and printer dependent not an easy one. You'll have to strip the printer to the point where you can remove the waste ink pads (usually right at the bottom of the printer). At this point you may as well also cleaning out the head cleaning pump. You can either purchase new waste ink pads, wash out old ones or cut up sanitary pads...

Normally your remedy is to replace
the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the
"Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally
housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer,
towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to
remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or
screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove
the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need a service manual,
for the removal procedure.
Also Replace the following parts and
reset the counters as described below:
- Waste Ink Pads
- F Box
- Pump Assembly
- Cap Assembly
- Cleaner, Head
- From Maintenance Mode 2 enter the Counter Init. Menu and initialize the Waste Ink counter and Cleaning counter.
