Epson Cx8400 waste ink pad error

Does anyone know how to reset the waste ink pad? I would like to still use my printer to scan to my computer but it will not allow me to do anything because of this error. Epson sure is a ripe off. First they charge an arm and a leg for the ink cartridges and now they set a waste ink error so the printer is more or less a paper weight. I would greatly appreciate it if any one knows how to reset this. Thank you

    Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation.

What does it mean when the power light and the printer light are blinking on an Epson c60 model?


If all the Led's/Light's are blinking/flashing on an Epson Printer, that indicates "Maintenance Request Error". The maintenance request error is actually a "Waste Ink Pad Overflow Error". Normally your remedy is to replace the Waste Ink Pads with a new ones and then reset the INTERNAL WASTE INK PAD COUNTER...The need to replace the waste ink pads is measured by the amount of ink uses, which is determined based on the number of Head Drive Pulses, accumulated in the waste ink counter. When the total quantity of ink deposited onto the waste ink pads, during cleaning and flushing, reaches the set limit, the printer generates a maintenance request error and stops printing. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow and normally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer.I know this information is not much help, but at least you will know what your ERROR is.

Strange message epson cx8400


Your printer needs to be reset, the part that is near the end of their service life is the waste ink pad, it means that it is almost full, when it's full your printer will stop printing.

It could be the Waste Ink Pad. Call Epson tech support for the correct answer. If it is the pad go to the site below and get a Waste Ink Container. It sits outside the computer. Lood at the CISS, it will save you Tons of money.

Reset ink-pad counter on epson stylus photo 1400


Hi,

The simplest way to do this is to grab a copy of the A10_IPR utility that Epson distribute to their customers...

The utility is available to North American customers if you register no this site page http://www.epson.com/ipr/

The utility is also know to be available in the wild if you search for "waste ink ipr".

Just remember to scan any download using a virus and malware scanner before you attempt to use it as some utilities contain trojans or similar nasties.

Hope that helps.

Unfortunately your only option at present is to take the printer to an Epson Service center and have it serviced to replace the waste ink absorbers/pads.

If you can afford to wait you could mothball (store) the printer and wait for a reset utility to become available for your model printer. Once you have that you could then install an external waste ink kit (google: waste ink epson).

At present though your options are very limited.

Hope that helps.
