Faqs / What is a Maintenance Box?

Some inkjet printers have a consumable product called a “Maintenance Box” which is a waste pad holder combined with a chip.

These units track waste ink using the chip so when the chip has reached it’s “full” point you have to replace the unit completely.

Note: Unlike other printers the chip is the controlling mechanism to determine when waste ink is full. Software resets do not work with these units. Replacement of the whole maintenance box, or hardware reset of the chip are the only ways to “Reset” the printers waste ink level.
