Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
You can see the waste pad by opening the access panel on the back of theprinter. Open the access panel on therear of the printer (remove screw) You will see a tube (down and to yourleft) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end onit. 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 tothe outside of the printer, thru the access panel. Find yourself a suitablecontainer (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Putthe tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won'tcome apart or lose connection if the printer is moved. If you wish you can makea hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced. Now the inkwill go into this container and not into the waste pad inside theprinter. If it gets full, dump it.

Testimonial: "That is an ingenius tip - thank you"
All printers have a built in ink counter. These are designed to stop the waste ink pads from over filling. The trouble is the counters are only set to 45% capacity. When this is reached your printer will stop working, until the pads are changed and the counter is reset. There is a way of doing this your self, download a simple utility called "SSC Service Utility" at this link. http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml. I did this for my R200 some years ago and it is still working fine. You can eventually change the pads via a small panel at the rear by simply unscrewing a small screw.Mac#
