It's like an open desert in this forum, but I am replying to your reply today,
So there are ways for you to reset the ink pad once it gets full, but the only draw-back to this is, if you are able to successfully reset the ink pad, it still doesn't change the fact that there is ink near or full in the printer.
I had a customer who was successfully able to reset the ink pads, but his printer eventually LEAKED from the bottom of the base of the printer where the print-head sits and it just poured out. Even when it is full and you reset it, it still will leak eventually.
If you are staying away from Epson and will stick to other brands , DON'T BUY HP. If you think the Epson's are bad, the HP are worst in where they cut every corner to prevent people from using these third party cartridges.
