    Replace pads. Make sure pads are fully seated.

    I've used 99% Isopropyl Alcohol in some. Is this a sponge or just a cup like absorber? For the sponge I usually remove it and soak it in alcohol and then, wearing rubber gloves, squeeze out the ink/alcohol mixture (multiple times if needed) for the cup type, I just use Q-tips to remove what I can and then clean the surface with Alcohol.
