    ValueJet Owners where are you getting your waste fluid boxes? The local guy here says it's $97 for one & Signwarehose sales doesn't have them in the system.

    Seems a bit pricey for a sponge & some plastic. Guess they gotta make up for the low sales price.

    absorbant napkins

    Keep the plastic box and replace the sponges with layers of sanitary napkins. They worked in my Epsons and my Mutoh.

    It felt a little odd buying them, but it works just fine :thankyou:

    FYI: it takes 6 regulars, so buy the thicker ones... without the wings...

    The replacement pads are $18 for a full set. Take out the old ones, clean out the waste tray with soap water, put the new ones in...Cheap!

    Be careful with putting in to many, I was told to do this by a sign warehouse tech and we put in to many, some of the pads touched the top after they got the fluid in them, which ate the plastic and stuck the pads to it like glue.

    Where can you get the replacment pad sets at?

    You can order the Absorbent Pads parts from your dealer or from Mutoh

    How come alot of people try to go the cheap route on printer parts then to buy the real thing? Don't you know it will probably cost much more when them tampons/kotex screw up your heads?

    Yeah be careful going for those after market pads.
    Anything non genuine OEM will void your warranty ya know.

    I wouldn't need to use these aftermarket pads if just one of the FIVE mutoh dealers I called would actually sell me the correct ones...

    I thought about using the sanitary napkins but did not want to take a chance on my printer not sensing when the ink tray was full. Somehow visions of ink dripping down the side of my printer and onto the floor didn't set well with me.

    I ordered a couple sets (3pcs) of the ValueJet waste tray felt at Calgraph.
    (800) 842-8448. Calgraph is the "official" service company for Mutoh printers.

    Here's what you need:

    (2) Absorbent Pad "A", Part #: DF-48555
    (1) Absorbent Pad "B", Part #: DF-48556

    These pads cost $6/each for a total of $18.

    I'd be interested in knowing if the sanitary napkins work. Just didn't want to take the chance.

    Best to all...

    Yes, the napkins worked, but I now have the proper pads back in the machine. It surprised me how long it took to get someone to send them to me. Calgraph tried telling me I need to buy the try also for $100.

    I think Mutoh dealers were caught with there pants down on this one. I don't think they realized all the calls they'd be getting for these. Didn't take long for my tray to fill up!
