Why does the waste ink pad counter error occur?
When you clean the print head and some print cycles, a small amount of excess ink will drip onto the ink pad. To prevent ink from flowing out of the pad, when a certain amount of ink absorbed by the pad reaches a certain amount, the printer stops printing and generates a corresponding error. The fill rate of the absorbent pad depends on the number of pages printed, the type of material printed, and the number of cleaning cycles the printer performs.
