This printer has started leaking ink out the bottom right corner. Print quality doesn't appear to be affected. Looking inside the unit there appears to be a black "pad" (sponge-like) affixed to the floor in the area of the leakage. Can't clean the mess up. Tried paper towels, but ink reappears. Tried irrigation, but ink keeps pouring out. Co-worker has the same printer with the same problem. His looks even worse than mine. Where's this ink coming from? Cartridges aren't leaking. Could it be coming from the print head cleaning sequence? This WAS my father's printer at one time and he DID use re-fillable cartridges ONCE, but that was years ago. Co-worker says he's NEVER used re-fillables in his printer (that he can remember). Printer is probably 7 years old or so...

Perhaps its time for a new printer?

Hi Colt Hero!

I remember reading about similar problems, and the manufacturer's response was "The ink waste tank is full - not user serviceable. Send unit to nearest authorised repair centre for replacement" - but the price was more than a new printer!

So I think this might be your problem - especially as it's so old! I'm in agreeance with charubin here.

:)
