Hello! Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be answering your question today.

When you get this ink pad service life message, there really is no other way around it other than replacing the ink pads. There are some software hacks out there that will reset your ink pad waste counter but I wouldn't have access to that information, nor could I provide you with it.

I apologize that I don't have better news but I certainly hope this helps you on your journey to resolving it.

If you have found this information helpful, a 5-star rating on my answer is appreciated, as this is how we receive credit for helping you guys.

You have a wonderful day and thank you. Good luck!
