Does anybody know how to fix the 'maintenance tank almost full' problem on the epson 9800. I assume I can just open it up and wash the ink pads- does it need to be reset after?
I opened up my tank under some water flushed everything out of it, put in some sponge, then get a chip re-setter (off ebay for less than £5.00) reset the chip so your back to 100%, done and saved 20 pound each for both tacks each time.
Resetting maintenance tank could damage the maintenance tank sensor, i know this cause i'm a certified epson large format tech, and i have experienced replacing MT sensor. well of course you can reset it, but if i were you ill just do resetting it twice.
According to this user guide (http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/pro78_/pro78_gd.pdf) You should replace the tanks. They look to be around 40 - 50 doing a quick search on the Web.
