Leaking ink out of bottom right corner. Ink pooled on the inside.

I have removed the ink cartridges and there is a pool of black ink inside the printer. What is the best way to clean the inside of the printer?

The ink in question comes from the printer's waste ink pads. You can see a partial look at them here, from a printer I tore down for motors that failed:

You can attempt to clean them, but I do not recommend it unless you have no other option due to the mess involved. When these are this full, it's going to be a nightmare. In addition, this is just another inkjet: completely tear the printer down, including print mach removal. The cost of parts (if you can get it; otherwise, you need to clean your old pads) will take hours to complete. Inkjets are disposable, sadly. You're usually better off recycling it and buying another one.

In addition to the mess, the other concern is that inkjets often have other issues that crop up later that aren't worth fixing, often shortly after the original hours of the prior repair. As sad as it is, inkjets are a disposable affair.

Helpful advice re unused ink pads

Both my wife and I have a HP 960. Excellent printers! A year ago mine began leaking ink from the left;rear corner. My wife said we would have to buy a new one. In my stupidity, wiling to take any gamble, I took it to the back yard, sat it on a 5 gallon bucket, and washed that ink pad out with the garden hose until it no longer ran black. Crazy ????? Yes !!! But guess what? After leaving it in the sun to dry, we put cartridges in and hooked it up. That was a year ago and I've had great use from it ever since with no problems.

( BTW ) my wifes printer did the same thing soooo we "gave it a bath also!" Still works just fine

This might help you, I don't know but several I have known since then thought the cartridge was leaking and it was just an overfull inkpad. I hope this helps someone
