Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies
How do I remove and clean the waste ink pads in my printer?
There is no easy way to remove and replace the waste pads on this model (or any built around the same time) as the waste pads were never placed or designed to be user-replaceable.
It's much easier to simply install an external waste ink kit which is easy enough to do...
More than a few resources exist that cover this including this:
Resolving the physical waste ink issue is only part of the equation though so you do still need to consider how to reset the waste ink counter as this is required to clear the "Service required" error displayed when the pads are deemed to be "full".

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.
