n the mean time you can RESET this purge count back to zero using the
MAINTENANCE 80 menu, to continue using the printer for a while until
you get the new pads. But it on a tray as if they are full they may
start to leak onto your desk....
1 . Press (MENU) (MONO START)
then (^) OR <the up arrow> four times, the Photo Capture and Red
Exclamation Lights will then flash.
2. Press (^) eight times until you see <8> then press (SET)
3. Press (^) twice until you see <0> then press (SET)
You will now be in MAINTENANCE 80.
Press the (MONO START) its a toggle until you see PURGE:6451 ( I guess
this means you have cleaned the heads over 6,450 times their threshold
level.) you will need to enter the code <2783> to RESET it.
5. Press (^) twice until you see < 2 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) eight times until you see < 7 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) nine times until you see < 8 > then press (SET)
5. Press (^) four times until you see < 3 > then press (SET)
The Printer will beep then reset counter will be at ZERO <0000000>
Its the PURGE that will increment by a variable amount each time you
clean the print heads the amount will be between 100 and 130. When this
count gets to about 64,000 the error 46 will occur. That's about 510
times you can clean the heads before the pads need cleaning.
Almost forget to EXIT the Maintenance mode enter 9 twice by using the
up arrow & set key's to exit from maintenance mode in the same way
as entering the 2783 code, or power down the printer.
