SOURCE: 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.

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.

Epson RX420 needs resetting, lights flash and PC can't detect it.


In most cases, it's a waste ink pad full problem (the sponge that sucks wasted ink is full). But it probably isn't full yet (Epson claims it's full long before it really is!).

You'll have to download the service program for Epson printers (which gives you access to service functions of your printer):
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/22895/SEIKO%20EPSON_EPSON%20RX420-425-430.html

Run the exe file (it doesn't work in Windows Vista or 7 - you'll need old xp for that). Then Select Sequential Adjustment Mode. Select your printer model and then Waste ink pad replacement. Press Ok.

You might have to try a bit.
After you suceed, you need to turn off the printer and turn it on again. If all went well, you won't be seeing all the blinking lights on your printer ;)

Restting waste tank counter


Hi,

You can reset this using the SSC utility available via this site:
http://www.inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

The main site is different but the link above includes a much better guide on how to use it.

It's important to note that you will need to deal with the waste ink pads and/or redirect the waste ink tube to an external tank to ensure you do not flood your printer with waste ink when the pads in the base of the printer become over-saturated.

The information for dealing with this is provided here:
http://www.octoink.co.uk/store/pages/Epson-RX420.html

... whilst it's for a different printer model, the general principles are the same so it should help get you sorted.

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.

How to change waste pads on Epson R2400?


The R2400 is quite an expensive printer and changing the pads would likely knock the printhead out of gross alignment so if you really must change the pads then I'd recommend getting it done at a service center (much as it pains me to suggest it).

The only time it's really essential to get the pads changed though is if you do a lot of borderless printing as this dumps ink straight to the pads and bypasses the popular external waste ink tank modification.

My recommendation would be to consider getting the printer serviced this once and then immediately install an external waste ink system to your printer and use the SSC or A10-IPR utility from Epson to reset the waste ink counter from there on in.

All the info you need is available via this link

Hope that helps, even if it is a little late..

The Waste Ink Pads are saturated 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 red 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.

The C64/66 service manual can be downloaded from here:
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/12748/Epson_C64%20and%20C84.html

Should you decide to have a go at changing the waste ink pads, let me know and I can supply some notes on opening the case - it's a pig and the service manual is not that helpful.
