Hello!

try this and check if it will work:

1. Press and hold "Stop", "Maintenance", and "Power" buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don't have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up. 2. Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That's all there is to the reset procedure. Is the waste pad full ? If the waste pad is actually full and ink is about to overflow, then you need to install a waste container. You can see the waste pad by opening the access panel on the back of the printer. Changing the waste pad requires almost complete disassembly of the printer, it is a big job. There is an easier way. Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. 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 to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel. Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won't come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved. If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced. Now the ink will go into this container and not into the waste pad inside the printer. If it gets full, dump it.

My Canon IP1800 says the Ink absorber is full. Need directions on how to reset this.


Try this process. When ink absorber pad in the bottom of the printer gets full of waste in, or the printer "thinks" it is full you will get the warning. If you do this rest and keep using the printer without actually cleaning/replacing the absorber pad you may find a lot of ink on your desk someday, be forewarned. you may need to try both of these methods. Good luck, it can be done with the right sequence.

Step 1: Manual for Service mode (1st method)
1. Unplug POWER and USB cables.
2. Open door, PRESS and HOLD the POWER button.
3. Connect the POWER cable.
4. Close door, then release POWER button.
5. Power ON your printer a usual (It should not blinking anymore)

Step 1: Manual for Service mode (2nd method)
1. Unplug POWER and USB cables.
2. PRESS and HOLD the POWER button,
3. Connect the POWER cable.
3. Release the the POWER button
4. Power ON your printer a usual (It should not blinking anymore)

My both red light is blinking continuously what i do help me


both light are blinking at the same time or blinking alternatively ?
if both blinking same time, it's a fatal error.. means it could be something wrong with the carriage or board or encoder belt...
if the light blink alternatively, it means the waste ink counter need to be reset and ink pad need to be replaced.

How to Solve Both Red Light Blinking Problem in Epson R230


Blinking alternately or not? If alternately, see status monitor. It may be end life service (waste ink pad full). Reset waste ink counter using Rx700 adjusment program. If not, it may be a general error.

Received message ''the waste ink absorber is full'' What can I do?


You will have to replace the waste ink pads. There should be two of them on the right under the print head in rubber containers. It could be a messy job though. I think the pads on that printer has a metallic strip for detecting full condition. So you can't reuse the pads even if you clean them up.

You need to reset the waste tank or the counter to resolve the problem.

If your C42 blinks both lights and displays a message to the effect that parts inside your printer have reached the end of their servicable life, then you probably need to clean the waste ink pads. These pads collect waste ink whenever the printer cleans it's heads. The printer counts how much ink it thinks is in the waste ink pads and refuses to print when they are full.

To verify whether this is the case, download the "SSC Service Utility" from http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml.

Waste tank full


Inkjet pads are between the printer chassis and the bottom of the printer case. Typically a large felt pad.
My Canon i9100 has eight orange flashes and indicates on screen "waste ink tank is full". After opening up mine I found this to be false, only one third soiled. This then leads me to believe the i9100 has a timer to go off after a preset number of hours.

Anyone know how to reset the "full waste ink tank" error?
