Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Have downloaded and opened the Rest Key file but have hit a further snag.
Seems to be that the printer has to be connected to my Mac by a USB cable. Unfortunately I do not have one as it is connected by wifi
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 5 months ago.

You need to connect the printer via usb cable to reset the ink pads. And if your ink pads have really reached at the end of their life then you will need to replace the printer as replacing the ink pads will cost you more

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Ok I will have to get a USB cable and then activate the reset key.
Thanks for your help.
