Re: messy ink problem
After reading your questions I think you might be refilling your cartridges. If you are then the problem is most likely your refiller or refilling process. If you are using original virgin cartridges, I have never encountered any cartridge that has leaked when they are brand new. If it is leaking then probability is that there is something wrong w/ the printer's internal system. I don't know if this helps but if you're using brand new cartridges you may have to bring it to Canon to check on it.

Ink ped means when your printer working start or when the printing end or when you cleaning your head some ink is waste and that ink move with in a motor and drop down a ped which is called waste ink pad when it is full your printer is not working. when you reset this it rework
ggirl why did you buy a pig in the poke they should refund your money because the batteries should have a six month warranty. Now always ask for the date code on batteries you are buying they shouldn't be any older than 4 months old. There are good batteries out there but if I offend anyone I'm sorry but MK batteries are very good also Interstate batteries and probably others that I'm not aware of. The best way to insure good batteries are buying fresh batteries, Charge them before you use the chair and always get into the habit of charging overnite if you use the chair daily. Never leave the charger plugged in more that 12 hours and if you don't use the chair daily charge at least once a week and always put up fully charged. Mk recommends charging the batteries daily for the first 20 days. Never run the batteries or let them fall below the red light on your battery level indicator. Your chair runs on about a 5 volt range (26-21 volts) after that the red light blinks like crazy. If it falls below 20 volts the charger will not charge the batteries. If you take care of them they should last you 3 years or more. Hope this helps
wheel bearings usually dont need maintenance until higher mileages (100k) or should be inspected and repacked when the brakes are done to ensure they last, but they do wear out - this is sometimes a fairly simple but messy job depending on the application - I personally do mine every 6 months to a year since I have a 4x4 - 4X4's need more maintenance than other vehicles due to all the components in the axle which generate more heat and wear than a typical car.
The free SSC utility which will reset the waste ink pad protection counter in most Epson inkjet printers can be downloaded from http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml. Remember though, if you don't change the ink pads, there will be an increasing danger of ink leakage from your printer, particularly if you tip it up for any reason - VERY messy, and it can clog up your printer mechanisms.
