SOURCE: waste ink pad saturated. EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R360

Replacing the pads is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. If you have little or no experience of stripping down printers it is best left to a proffessional. Contact Epson to find your nearest service centre, but remember to get a quote as it may be more economical to replace the printer. Sometimes the counter can "jump" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility. See these sites:
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
More information about this issue and the "official" Epson resetter is available from the Epson web site, please read this link:

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 www.Epson.com

SOURCE: Where can I buy the waste ink absorber pads for both printers?

Hi
The waste ink are in the inside of your printer you need to get at it to clean out, but after this you got to reset it after you cleaned it or it will still not work, you may not have to get inside to clean it try this first to reset it.
Reset CANON PIXMA IP5000 printer To reset the counter or to find out about it’s reading you have to use the service mode.
Turn off the printer, push the resume button and keep on pushing.
Press the power button and keep on pushing. Now let go off the resume button,
but not the power button. Push the resume button twice, then let go off all buttons.
You are now in service mode.

To leave the service mode, give the power button one push.

Push the resume buttons once, after that the power button once.
The first information page appears.
Push resume twice, then power once: You get the second page.

Newer PIXMA-printers print the first page as a test for the nozzles.
The second page contains a lot of information.

Our advice: Print the second page before and after reset of the waste ink counter.
Only then can you be sure that the reset was a success.

To reset the waste ink counter right now, push resume four times and after that power once.

Important: Before starting with normal printing again, switch off the printer.
That gets you out of service mode.

Then switch on the printer again and print, as you like

What is waste ink obserber? How it will be replaced?


waste ink pad absorber is like a waste tank made of absorbent pads, in here the waste ink is absorbed. In time this waste ink pad will be saturated or full. When it happens the printer will suddenly stop working. The printer needs to be reset to function again and the waste ink pad replaced to prevent flooding of waste ink inside the printer. The waste ink pad is replaced by disassembling the printer.

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 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:

Epson C46 has stopped printing with message saying service needed but nobody wants to make it carry on working


If both printer lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") 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.

If you wish to pursue this matter further, report back.
