Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer
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.
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.

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.
