Putting out a request for anyone who might find themselves reading this and who has a Canon Megatank 6000 or 7000 series printer that is showing error code 1700 or anything that indicates the waste ink pads are full.

I'm slowly working my way through different printer models with a view to finding out how to:
a) Replace waste pads and/or fit an external waste ink kit to them
b) Reset the waste ink counter(s)

... and then document the whole process.

Full disclosure, yes there is a commercial element to this in that my own company (well okay, me) manufacture and produce waste ink solutions but I am willing to pay a reasonable amount to be able to get these units in and where practical/possible return the printers to the original owners if we can indeed get them working again.

In case it's of interest, I'm looking at plenty of other Epson printers for the same reason but I'm starting here. Oh and we're located in the UK so that may be a practical consideration. Thanks in advance for anyone who takes the time to look and please DM (message me directly) or post a reply below and I'll respond as soon as I can.
