Hi, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you
Please let me know how old is this printer
also let me know how often is it used for printing
Expert:  Michelle replied 1 year ago.
The error message indicates that the consumable parts within the printer are reaching end of life
these are ink pads which are porous pads that absorb excess ink during printing and routine maintenance
once the pads gets full there is a risk of ink spillage within the printer that can cause further damage
you can find more information about this issue on below link
in such a case the unit needs to be serviced
however i would suggest to take a service estimate cost and then decide whether you would like to get this one serviced or opt in for a new printer
i hope you understand that in case of hardware faults i can suggest cleaning and reset steps but cannot make a bad part work again
