Reset Epson ET-1813
If you own an Epson Ecotank printer, you might have come across the frustrating error message that says “Ink pad end of service life.” This message typically indicates that the ink pads, which absorb excess ink during the printing and cleaning process, are full and need to be replaced. However, replacing the ink pads is not a user-serviceable task and should be done by a professional technician. Fortunately, there are a few things you can try before contacting customer support.
First, you can try resetting the printer’s internal counter. To do this, turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the back. Wait for a few minutes, then press and hold the power button for around 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back in and turn the printer on. Check if the error message persists.
If resetting the printer doesn’t work, you can try cleaning the ink pads yourself. Remove the ink cartridges and carefully lift the scanner unit to access the printer’s interior. Locate the ink pad assembly, which is usually positioned on the right side. It’s a sponge-like material. Gently blot it with a paper towel to remove excess ink. However, keep in mind that this is a temporary solution, and you should still contact a professional technician to replace the ink pads.
In conclusion, if you encounter the “Ink pad end of service life” error on your Epson Ecotank printer, try resetting the printer first. If the error persists, you can try cleaning the ink pads temporarily. However, to ensure proper functionality and avoid any damage, it is highly recommended to seek professional help to replace the ink pads.
