Epson Epson Stylus CX3600

Epson CX3600

I have had the error messages etc relating to waste ink pads and firstly I would just wish to thank all contributors to previous posts on this subject, I have read most of them and have fixed the problem. I decided to use a syringe on the right tube at the back of the printer but was suprised how little ink came away, probably less than a quarter of a teaspoon, I downloaded the SCC Service utility and the printer is now working just fine. On reading the posts I get a little worried by the dire warnings of ink overflow if the ink waste pads are not cleaned/replaced. I had a go at opening the printer up [I am an electrical enginer so I do get to open up complex pieces of equipment- and put them back] however this one has got me baffled. Everything is OK until I get to the left hand side of the printer where the control panel is, I got the cover off the USB socket but can't get the cover free at the control panel. On the very left hand side of the panel there are three claw type plastic clips but it looks as though the controls are attached to the cover. Can anyone explain just how to free the cover on the left hand side please. I have now got to the stage that I am not going to let this thing beat me-you know how it is. Thanks for reading this and once again many thanks to all the contributors who posted previously, you really sorted my problem out
look at this link http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/cx4600.html it covers disassembly.

Thanks Wes but the diagrams show only the disassembly of the document cover, not the actual cover of the printer.

Thanks Wes

You are of course correct I did not go into the first attachment deep enough, many thanks for your help and patience. It will be a few days before I get round to taking the thing apart but at least I now know what to do.
