Question about Epson Stylus CX6400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
EPSON rulez, don't make any judgements before you read this :)
The printer has a waste ink pad, which basically isaplastic container with felt in it. When the printer cleans theheads,either as commanded by you, or initially before printing, itspits outsome ink into this pad. The printer remembers an approximatecount ofink that has gone into the pad in a "protection counter", andsignalswhen the counter reaches a predefined limit.
Of course,this padhas a limited capacity. Theoretically, you should take yourprinter toa service workshop for waste pad replacement and resetting ofthecounter - the printer is designed not to let the waste ink overflowandleak under the printer.
Of course the limit is set with asafetymargin, for a worst-case scenario, when you "pour" ink constantlyandit has no time to dry.
If you want tobecompletely inline with manufacturer's specifications, and especiallyifthe printer is still under warranty, you should contact EPSONserviceto do the right thing.
If however you want to live on theedge,you can download a special utility to reset the protectioncounter,replacing the felt or cleaning it yourself, or - if you areeven moreadventurous - without replacing the pad altogether, countingon thefact, that the waste ink dries out all the time and in practicethe padshould accept twice as much as the producer assumed - but don'tplaceyour printer on that antique table or sofa afterwards...
If you want to give it a try, go to this webpage to download the software (TIP: DON'T be tempted to change any other settings, as you may render your printer useless):
