Ink pad woes

I read your cleaning instructions for the pads. Does this work on an Epson 2200? The ink pad doesn't look like how you described it.

Hi,

Sorry to be a few days in getting back to you. We had a death in the family and settling all the affairs has occupied most of my time for most of this past month or so. All is settled now, except for the memories.

As to your question, there is some variance from one maker to another and from one model to another.

I believe in your case, excess ink is carried out a flow tube to a reservoir and after printing a fixed number of times the Epson software gives you a warning message that the ink tank is full and to empty it.

Is this the case in your model? You are not seeing absorber pads?

When the print head cartridge is at rest a platform rises to seal off the print heads and prevent them from drying out. It is this platform that has the excess ink overflow tube that runs to a reservoir.

So, let me know if I'm spot on or way off base and if the later, give me a hint as to what you are seeing and what the problem happens to be. I'll be glad to help you get through this and if need be I can bring another expert into this discussion.

Regards,
Worldvet

Why my epson stylus c 67 ink and paper flashing alternately and cannot print, printer occured a problem


Look at this link for the app to reset the waste pad ink counter, and the video helps too; remeber to clean your waste ink pad because it can spill ink to your desk in a extreme case; you need to open your printer to clean the waste ink pad; search for instructions online.
PD: I have reset my counter six times and cleaned the waste ink pad two times; after six years I keep using my printer correctly.

How do I reset the sensor after a waste pad error message for an Epson 7000? The pad is not full and I need to reset so I can print.


Hi


Normally your remedy is to replace the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the "Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer, towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need a service manual, for the removal procedure.


Also Replace the following parts and reset the counters as described below:
- Waste Ink Pads
- F Box
- Pump Assembly
- Cap Assembly
- Cleaner, Head
- From Maintenance Mode 2 enter the Counter Init. Menu and initialize the Waste Ink counter and Cleaning counter.

Also check the end article at this given link for the resolution of the problem:-

Both the red and green light are on and blinking.What is wrong with my Epson C60?


kiryakitsa1 You should download the SSC Service Utility as pineworks says. Read the instructions and warnings. Go to Reset counter protection and press reset. You may recieve a warning about replacing your waste ink pads. I have always reset the protection counter without replacing the waste ink pads and I have never had a problem. If you see ink drainage then you should replace the waste ink pads and then reset the protection counter. I have never had a problem with ink heads and I have done this many times.

I have a warning that my ink pad is saturated and needs replacing contack dealer for assistance (help)


Ink means pad for waste ink nearly full. Epson program read and count all waste ink from head cleaning and ink charge. Next, you need reset waste ink counter, and replace or washing pad. You can extend outlet pipe to outside of printer, so next time you don't need replace pad again.

Red and green lights flashing alternately


Hi there.
Under each printers there is a pad, a spunch that holds all the wasted ink. This pad is probably full. you should locate where the ink pad is and change it or clean it. By cleaning I mean getting rid of all the ink from the spunch. After cleaning or replacing the pad you shoul run a utility to reset the protection counter. I use to have a all in one epson printer and did the same. I use SSC Service utility. it helps to reset the counter. After that, if that is the problem, your printer should work again.
Good luck

Epson 2200 ink replacement light stays on


I had the same problem with the light black and light magenta as well. It took trying only one new cartridge with the light magenta before it worked.
The light black took 4 new cartridges before it worked. I had called the Epson support center on this problem and after going through suggestions they made that did not work, I told the guy I had another new cartridge on hand. He said to go ahead and try it. This time the printer worked. He took my name and address and said the other cartridges were faulty. Epson is sending me new replacement cartridges at no charge.

Response to solution one Ink pad woes


There is a method to clear the counter and I think it is posted here somewhere. It is a sequence of keys on the printer control panel.

I'll see if I can find it for you.

EPSON 2200 - Waste Ink Pad Replacement


You can replace the pads yourself.... I wouldn't really mess with it though. There are other ways Google search "Waste Ink Epson 2200" to see how to setup an external tank.. I have mine setup this way and its been no problem.... If you're set on taking them out remove the screws from the sides and middle and the bottom will drop away and reveal the pads.
