Question about Epson Stylus RX580 InkJet Photo Printer
I have an epson stylus photo rx 630. The ink absorber pads seem to be very clogged. Am not sure what I can clean them with if anything. Can you help. Thanks
Just to note... I think there's some confusion here between the main waste ink pads in the base of the printer and the parking pad where the printhead rests or gets cleaned.
HeXx13505 deals with the base pads but frankly I doubt you could reach them without knocking the printhead out of gross alignment (thus requiring a service technician to reset everything) so it's a bit moot...
As for the parking pads, you can easily resolve any ink build up here with warm water soaked pads of kitchen absorbent towel which you dab on the parking pads and generally wipe the excess build up away with.
If the pads are overly soiled with dried or gummed up ink, then you need something like a printhead cleaner to return the ink to solution and then absorb it into kitchen towelling again.
Fixya's already been issued but I figured a little redirect was in order for completeness... Cheers

You should NOT clean the absorber pads, as this will void your warranty. If there is no problem with print quality, do not do anything. Call epson for more info.
