Why Wouldn't it? There i s no connection of the "Pad" with anything.

The printer's waste ink counter goes on happily counting away and sending the info to the chip.

Even if you took the pad out completely it would stil work. It might get a bit splashy in there though.

Sorry to be confused. So the printer will keep working when the counter says it needs a maintenance tank replacement.

No, it will not work if it thinks the tank is full. You can use the bottle cap method all you like, but the counter will go down regardless and it will stop printing when it hits full. You would need a resetting tool to get around it.
