Epson Epson Stylus Color 660

Epson 660


Where can I get replacement waste ink pads in the UK and whats the procedure to change them.

Also tried to use the rest programme and the cartridge change function does not work on this model, how else can I change cartridges without thelight being on ?


I am not sure where to get the waste pads here but I normally just check them & reset if they look ok. If not, I just wash them out. (messy but does the job)
To change the cartridges before the light comes up, Press & hold the PAPER/RESUME button. This should move them over. To reset the waste ink counter manually do the following:
1) Press & hold PAPER/RESUME & INK/CLEANING buttons
2) Press POWER button & hold it until the INK OUT & PAPER lights start blinking
3) Release all buttons
4) In 2 or 3 seconds press & hold INK/CLEANING button until all lights blink
5) Power off

This should sort it out.
Good Luck!

Yes! Its been a while since I saw a 660 but if it is the model with black plastic cover underneath, this is where the waste pad is. You need to do quite a bit of stripping down before you get them out tho' But if this is the first time the message is appearing you should be able to get away with just resetting it this time.
