This is a “headless” Epson, so if that happens the moment you turn your machine on the waste ink pad is saturated.

For this model I’ve went into a lot of detail here, but the main takeaway is you need to use a 3rd party tool (Usually Epson WIC reset utility but you need a reset key, or the leaked copy of the official Epson tools. While I found it for yours, Google had a stroke and treated it as a "virus" (hmmm, okay?). As such, I had to upload the files to Megaupload. You will need to change the pad or modify the printer, and then reset it back to 0%. Either of those approaches work, so it’s really a matter of how willing you are to take the printer apart or if you’d rather hack it together externally.
