Hello!

try this and check if it will work:

1. Press and hold "Stop", "Maintenance", and "Power" buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don't have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up. 2. Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That's all there is to the reset procedure. Is the waste pad full ? If the waste pad is actually full and ink is about to overflow, then you need to install a waste container. You can see the waste pad by opening the access panel on the back of the printer. Changing the waste pad requires almost complete disassembly of the printer, it is a big job. There is an easier way. Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad. Use a piece of coathanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel. Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won't come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved. If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced. Now the ink will go into this container and not into the waste pad inside the printer. If it gets full, dump it.

Epson P50 does not respond. Blinking lights and stuck cartridges.


This is a standard "Service required" issue where the waste pads (or nappies) in the printer are considered full by the printer and it wants them changing.

An Epson service centre can replace the pads and reset the waste counter for a considerable amount of money although most it seems either tell you it's dead and recommend you buy a new one, or they reset the counter, ignore the pads and leave you to flood your printer.

The more cost effective option is to locate one of a number of reset utilities such as the AdjProg utility for the T50 (it's compatible with the P50) and an external waste ink kit (like the Printer Potty).

The latter is easy enough to fit on a P50 thanks to the access hatch located in the rear left quadrant of the printer.

The waste ink collector/tank is nearly full


The ink collector should be found underneath where the cartridges normally rests. Put some tissue paper on the ink padand let it absorb the ink. You might have to repeat the procedure a few times to get rid of all the ink.

How do you find the waste ink collector on a printer/scanner ?


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink tank full" error.

The waste ink absorption pads are inside the printer, in the very bottom. They are usually soaked with ink when full and are very messy.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you.

EPSON STYLUS C43SX PRINTER


You need to reset the waste tank or the counter to resolve the problem.

If your C42 blinks both lights and displays a message to the effect that parts inside your printer have reached the end of their servicable life, then you probably need to clean the waste ink pads. These pads collect waste ink whenever the printer cleans it's heads. The printer counts how much ink it thinks is in the waste ink pads and refuses to print when they are full.

To verify whether this is the case, download the "SSC Service Utility" from http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml.

Waste tank full


Inkjet pads are between the printer chassis and the bottom of the printer case. Typically a large felt pad.
My Canon i9100 has eight orange flashes and indicates on screen "waste ink tank is full". After opening up mine I found this to be false, only one third soiled. This then leads me to believe the i9100 has a timer to go off after a preset number of hours.

Anyone know how to reset the "full waste ink tank" error?
