Thanks for the info Richie. That's good to know !. Possibly it works also for the Pro10 ?.
I suspect that it wouldn’t be any good in my case. In all likelihood service mode of my Pro10 is locked, after messing in vain with a previous version of that reset tool.

Anyway 30K pages of smallish prints in borderless mode possibly translates to more than 20K DINA4 sized pages in normal mode?. Good enough for a number of years, with my printing rate. I wish the printhead would last that long.:rolleyes:
The listing says it works on the pro-10 and pro-1. Also, I think it's the constant automatic purging and cleaning cycles these printers do that really soaks them. Especially when printing a lot, since I'm refilling, I change them before they get low, but that leads to several cleaning cycles.

I wonder if there's an easy way to get some of the excess ink out of the pads without having to fully disassemble the printer to remove them.

Now we need a "Printer Potty" kit for the PRO-100. Anybody listening?? It might be a tough "dig" to install, though...

It’s as easy as removing the top cover and purge unit (3 screws) or the long way… This might help…

Ok... I've been getting queries off the back of this so can I ask what your "short" version is @The Hat and I'll see if I can take apart my spares/repair Pro-100 enough to dry run an external waste kit fitting process... then see how transferable it is for the Pro-10.
