Epson stylus photo RX500 printer wouldn't print due to some parts being at the end of their life. I was able to reset the error message and now it prints. BUT I need to clean or replace the ink pads. Where are they and how do I get to them? How best do I clean them?? Thanks

The ink pads are located in the printer where the cartridge rest when not in printing position.its in the the corner side in the base.but to remove the pad for cleaning you need to disassemble the printer.disassembling the printer is not at all a tough job but yes its very time consuming job and you need proper space and time to open whole printer.cleaning the pads is also easy job .just take the pad and clean it with lots of clean water.then completely dry the water got soaked in the pad then reinsert the pad to their proper position.
you can get your printer serviced at local printer/copier repair shop.that will clean whole printer including the pads for you with the servicing charge.
