Product Description

The Solo-XP2 kit is intended for the Epson Expression Premium inkjet printers (eg: XP-600, XP-605, XP-700, XP-750, etc..) and helps resolve and revive a printer suffering from the error: "Parts inside your printer have reached the end of their service life".

Note: Installation instructions for this kit are included as an A5 printed booklet. If you have a visual impairment please tick the appropriate box when adding this item to the cart and we can provide a larger A4 version.

 

Introduction to Waste Ink

When an Epson inkjet printer displays the warning "Service Required"*, often the manufacturers advice is to replace the printer. In reality this supposedly critical error is the inkjet equivalent of a toddler desperate to empty its bladder.

Printer Potty waste kits are a simple solution that resolve two issues:

  1. Provides the necessary tools and support to reset the printers internal waste counter, thus clearing the error.
  2. Providing an a physical waste ink kit to simplify the collection and disposal of waste ink so your printer doesn't leak.


Resetting

Your printer keeps track of estimated waste ink volume in its memory and increments this waste ink counter until a theoretical limit is reached. Your printer then generates the associated error and will refuse to work until it has been reset.

We provide a tool along with a 'key' to reset the printer waste ink counter to it's "new" value (ie: zero) and clear the error.
Note: One key is required per reset. Additional keys are available as a separate item.

Requirements:

  • Compatible Operating System:
    • Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 (32 or 64 bit)
      ...or...
    • MacOS 10.6.7 (or later)
  • An active Internet connection
  • Printer connected to printer with USB cable
  • Printer drivers installed.

The reset tool itself is free to download and will read your printers waste ink counter without requiring a key so it is recommended that you download, install and check the utility will recognise and read your printers waste ink counter to ensure compatibility.

Please note: There are numerous support resources to troubleshooting and resolving almost all waste ink counter reset issues so please feel free to check our Support FAQ/KB section.

 

The Waste Kit

The physical waste kit consists of a tube extension and a collection tank.

The tube exension part is designed to connect to your printers existing waste ink tube and extend out of your printer. The tank, naturally is designed to collect the waste ink and allow you to easily dispose of the waste before being reconnected and re-used.

Key Features:

  • Lab quality tubing with very smooth bore, ensuring minimal adhesion that might allow clogs to develop.
  • Tank uses a valve that closes automatically when the tube fitting is unscrewed.
  • A tight liquid proof seal around the fitting stops any leakage.
  • Simple to install, easy to maintain.
  • Tanks are all re-usable after emptying.
  • Tiny vent hole (1mm) to allow any air out automatically while ensuring minimal ink escape potential.
  • The location and size of the vent hole allows for accidents as the waste tank can effectively fall and hang from the waste tube with minimal, if any, spillage.
  • This particular kit includes a tube connector that not only connects the original waste tube to the kit, but also acts as a strain relief to protect the internal waste tube.

Support extends beyond instructions to include our expanding documentation library plus email and phone support (UK based) so even the most nervous end-user can be supported throught the process.

  1. Life saver - printer's life that is

    Posted by Patrick_B on 26th Nov 2018

    I bought this for my Epson XP-760.

    I had been using a CIS system on it with genuine Epson inks. When it came time to buy more ink I couldn't face paying the Epson prices so made the decision to bin the CIS and go for refillable cartridges with 250ml OCP ink.

    Without a word of a lie as soon as the cartridges were fitted the printer gave the 'Ink Pad end of life' message.

    After some advice from Martin here at Octoink I bought this kit.

    The instructions were really clear and comprehensive making the fitting very easy with only a Philips screw driver and a hobby knife required.

    I reckon from start to finish it took around 20 minutes.

    In operation I was amazed how much ink is wasted by Epson printers during a head clean. Epson are literally printing money for themselves.

    Printer manufacturers really are robbing their customers when you see how much ink is wasted along with the built in End Of Life of the waste ink pad with no consumer replaceable parts.

    I fully recommend the printer potty to anyone who wants to extend the life of their printer and not be forced into buying another printer because of what is effectively a kill switch.

    My only regret it not going for the larger potty - Epson do waste an obscene amount of ink
