All inkjet printers have some sort of waste ink tank. Many of these tanks are replaceable. The printer should let you know when the tank is getting full. Once full, the tank must be changed. Most of these tanks can be reset or recycled. I have placed videos at explaining how to recycle your tank. For Epson 4000 printers, you will need a “chip resetter”. For Ricoh GX7000/GX5050N printers, see my video. This is a great way to save money and lower stress; your printer won’t be down while waiting for a new tank to arrive.
