Epson was like the first manufacturer to use that diabolical little extortion device that is built in to the cartridge. I never defeated it but it is like one of those little anti-shoplifting devices used in retail stores that the cashier nulls out with a degausser of some kind. Do NOT use wires from a wall receptacle to zap it -it will explode~ Steve

Epson Stylus TX400. Refuses to accept either compatable or refilled cartridges?


Epson TX400 is so sensitive in terms of ink cartridges, you can only replace a refilled ink cartridge in this type of printer if the cartridge has an automatic ink reseter chip. When you replace a cartridge in your printer, it will automatically register the ink level in the chip. So you need an ink reseter chip to replace a new refilled cartridge.

Don't know exactly where to drill a hole to refill Epsom T0711 printer ink cartridge. Can you help?


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.
You won't need to drill hole anywhere.
Visit this link to get all the instructions required to refill the ink in Epson T0711 cartridge.
But remember you would need a chip resetter gun to re set the chips on the ink cartridges after you refill the cartridges.
Visit this link to buy Universal chip reseter if you don' t have.

Good luck and have a nice day.

I would like to refill Epson Stylus CX9400 old ink


You cant recode the cartridge it is programmed to die and fry. You can get chips but many DIY filling options are going to cause you other issues down the road, they are a cheap way to run your printer but eventually willc ause you issues such as ink leaks which leads to the in pad needing to be renewed not to mention some other horror stories. I would alays reccomend OEM inks, but if non OEM is hte way you want to go contact a retail outlet that specialises in refilling spent cartridges.

Don't know where the refill hole is? Epson stylus c120 ink refill


The Epson 68 cartridges cannot be legally refilled at this time. There are two chips that monitor the ink levels. Once the ink gets below 25% the inner chip deactivates the outer chip so it cannot be reset. Any replacement chips you can buy are technically violating patent law. To refill these you would need a chip resetter and always refill it before it gets below 25%. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would not recommend refilling these yourself unless you enjoy getting ink everywhere and possibly still not having the cartridge work (btw there is no "refill hole" you make it yourself, thus the messiness).

Refilled the ink and it is still saying it needs


Unfortunately, you may need to buy new Epson manufactured ink cartridges. Some of the ink cartridges and/or printers have a setting that says this cartridge is empty and refilling the cartridge does not clear the empty code.

Epson 785epx has sponge type material in the paper tray which came from underneath the guide bar for the ink cartridges. Printer goes through the printing cycle with no ink on the page.


The sponge is the head cleaner. It cleans the dried ink off the print headwhen you start a print job. If you don't replace it, your print head or cartridge will be ruined.

Epson stylus cx9400fax series printer


There is no chip resetter for this model at this time. However, one is to be available in the near future. So for now you must purchase new/refilled cartridges.

How to refil a epson cartridge


Hi there

It depends on the cartridge - the genuine Epson cartridges and the various clones are not all constructed in the same way. Do a google search on "epson c67 cartridge refill instructions" and review the various recommendations - you will soon see which best applies to your cartridges. Note, however, that the chip restter manufacturers do not guarantee to work with all clone cartridges.

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing
