After printing some amount of photos on 4x6inch paper,
porous sponge on printing area got wet and smudged too much.
I have never printed with borderless option with this printer...

I would like to replace it with genuine parts but the official center refuses to sell the parts only.


I have absorbed as much as I can with paper towel but there's a lot left there..

Is there any better way to solve this problem?

Do you have the Epson partnumber of the foam piece(s) ? Use it for a search at aliexpress.com.

It’s a Canon Pro 1 printer that the OP is having issues with.. Not an Epson.. Ops..

These porous sponges can be removed slow and careful with a small screwdriver and can be washed and dried, and then put back in.. To squeeze dry, place them inside a newspaper and press firmly.. Clen the grove before reinstalling..

One caveat dough, you need to be careful you don’t tear them and only do one at a time, then you won’t mistake which sponge goes where, they are different shapes and can be put back in 4 different ways, but only one way is correct..

The question is posted in the "Epson Inkjet Printers" forum, and isn't the P900 in the title an Epson printer?

*Psst...* try not to confuse the old folk with multiple printer models... They get themselves all worked up and we have to call the nurse for the sedatives... ;)
