[QUOTE=deanwitty;2235819] Glad to hear the stop/maintenance button trick worked. SSC can be a great tool, but seen more than a few reports of it toasting a printer. [/QUOTE]
Oh wow deanwitty, Bless you for this post!
I did DL that SSC to use when ready, thinking it would time how long to “spit & sputter” when setting the counter as I only did it manually to try and had no inkling as to how long to leave it go. I am guessing I had it doing that for 5 seconds, if that long, and found my printer would print again after that and no Service Required message came.
I found this when reading your URL’s this morning.
- 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 off.
- Turn your printer off and then back on - job done.
You mean a message pops up when done? It sounded so horrible like a grinding noise that I thought it was going to “explode” but should I try that again after I get my tank attached?
[QUOTE=deanwitty;2235819]As I understand it, pad-cleaning and external waste tank is an either/or choice. If you go the tank route(the better choice unless, like me, you really like taking things apart), don’t believe you need to worry about pad-cleaning. [/QUOTE]
Another great news to hear. Bless you.
I think I will try just the external “ink catcher” and if something happens to where I have to clean the pads, we will cross that bridge then.
I think I will put a baking pan under the printer in case ink appears from soaked pads? Then I will know.
