Just cleaned my waste bin on my Epson ET3750. I am curious, is there a way to reuse that "waste" ink? Seems like a massive waste. Took me a long time just to clean the pad. Thanks.

Using the waste ink is not recommended, it is a mix of the CMY inks and does not print black but just middle gray.

You don't need to clean the pads, you just take some sheets of kitchen towel paper, fold it and push it into the box for the pads.

Thanks 'The Hat' and 'Ink stained Fingers'!

How are you all resetting the counter?

Thanks Ink stained fingers,
I tried this site because they listed my ET 3750, but when I paid it didn't work. It said something along the lines of this model is not supported.

Sorry - yes - you are right - the ET-3750 comes with a user replaceable waste/meintenance box which carries a chip. A resetter is not available and a reset via WicReset is not possible, you need to buy a new waste ink box - either the Epson version or some 3rd party product via Amazon or similar at about half the price.
