How to avoid Epson BX525WD printer Waste Ink Pad overflow?
You completely use these skills to sop the Epson BX525WD printer from meeting the problem called Waste Ink Counter Overflow after implementing resetting process. Each Epson printer is designed to have different Waste Ink Pad’s position so let’s read this text carefully to know more.
Before starting with the detail steps we need to find some information about the ideas: As we know that the waste ink of the printer is constructed to flow into a wire pine to the Waste Ink Pad then they are collected by the sponge in the Waste Ink Pad, this make the waste ink not to overflow out of the Epson BX525WD printer but the sponge has the limited absorbing ability so when the sponge is not able to absorb the waste ink, it’ll overflow.
You can use a bottle to contain the waste ink instead of replacing the Epson BX525WD printer’s Waste Ink Pad or collect the waste ink from the Waste Ink Pad.
Please follow these steps to allow the waste ink flow into the alternative bottle:
Step 1: Checking and open the cover of waste ink pad:
Turn the Epson BX525WD printer then you can see the small cover as the picture below, this is the waste ink pad’s cover.
Open it and you can see the waste ink’s wire pine and the waste ink’s sponge in the picture below.
Then you can realize that the Epson BX525WD printer’s waste ink pad is larger than the gate to go over the waste ink pad you have already opened, so you must to disassemble the shell and this way needs to be done carefully. You will not be able to fix it by yourself.
You can follow and apply our method that doesn’t need to remove any thing, let’s see in the second step:
Step 2: Separate the waste ink tube out of the Waste Ink Pad:
When you find the Waste Ink Pad of the Epson BX525WD printer and the waste ink tube, you can use a tool to separate the waste ink tube iut of the waste ink pad. Please move everything softly and carefully to prevent the damage of the tube.
Be gentle and careful to avoid folding or cracking waste ink pipes of Epson BX525WD printer.
Step 3: As you can see in the picture, use a cylinder to suck the waste ink of the Epson printer. After that clean the waste ink tube and absorb the waste ink out of the Waste Ink counter.
You also need to suck the waste ink form the sponge in case the Epson BX525WD printer is new one you can skip this step but not for the old printer because the old one can be overflow the waste ink while the transferring process is occurring.
By this way, don’t worry about the waste ink overflowing when you don’t use the bottle to contain the waste ink. However, you have to check and suck the waste ink regularly so I think you should use a bottle to collect the waste ink.
Step 4: Install the waste ink Bottle:
– You need the glass or plastic bottle.
– A tube is the same size as the the tube of the Epson printer.
– The connectors.
Let’s put the tube into the tube of the Epson BX525WD printer then plug the other into the bottle we have mentioned, don’t forget to put the bottle is lower than the Epson BX525WD printer to sure that the waste ink can flow easily as the picture below.
Now you can try printing some files and check the waste ink flow into the bottle or not.
After a definite period of using you have to pour all the waste ink and clean the bottle up then continuprinting jobs.
Notes: This bottle is a good solution, if you want to use this convenient method for the long-team. I think you should use WIC Reset Tool for reset the Epson BX525WD printer’s Waste Ink Counter. It’s more professional than replace the Waste ink Pad.
