Resetting the Epson Ink Monitoring System -
Even though the CFS maintains a constant level of ink in the cartridges, the Epson monitoring system will signal that the cartridges are empty after a cartridge full of ink has been used. This ink level information is stored on the Intelligent cartridge chip. These cartridge chips have to be reset with out lifting the cartridges. This is done with Inksupply.com Auto Reset Chips. On older Epson printers, before the Intelligent cartridge, it is done mechanically by removing and re-inserting the Inksupply.com switch activators. CFS cartridges must be reset without lifting them.
Previous Reset Methods -
The resetting methods have evolved over the past couple of years. First the Swedish Reset method was used, then the Equalizer Program, then the F-16 Chip Resetter, and now the Auto Reset Chips.

Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Reset ink levels


If you're referring to the OEM/Original cartridges the short answer here is "You can't!".
However you can opt for alternative ink supplies in the form of Refillable Cartridges or CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) systems as these use Auto Reset Chips (ARCs) to reset the ink level.
Obviously you have to make sure they really are full of ink but it's a much simpler approach than trying to reset original cartridges.
Hope that's of some help.

Epson cx8400 can`t recognise the ink cartridge!!!


If you mean you have a chip resetter and have reset the chip when you say you've "shock the ink cartridge" then it sounds like the chip on the cartridge is damaged and can no longer be reset. To fix the problem you either need to get a replacement chip or a new cartridge.

Epson R285 need service utility


It sounds a lot like you have managed to reset the printer using the R290 adjustment utility and it now thinks that your printer is an R290 printer.

As a result it's rejecting the yellow cartridge (presumably the first to read empty since you reset the printer) and expects you to provide R290 consumables.

The only fix that I've heard suggested (and I'm still waiting to hear if it worked) if to get someone with a valid R285 to use the same adjustment utility to make a backup of the EEPROM data (nothing else), save this file, send it to you, and then for you to restore that same data to your own printer EEPROM.

As I said, I haven't heard if it works and I could be wrong about the cause but as I provide waste kits myself and have already had quite a few people report a similar issue I suspect I'm about right.

Hope that helps.

Epson r285 uses all colors to print black


To print in black ink only mode on windows, please follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the drv_taskbaricon_1.gif printer icon in the lower right corner of your screen (taskbar).
  2. Select Printer Settings. A preferences window will appear.
  3. Click the Advanced button in the lower right corner of the preferences window (if you see a Basic button in the lower right corner of the window, skip this step).
  4. Click the Black Ink Only check box.
  5. Click OK in the preferences window.
If you’re using a Macintosh, you can’t set up the printer to print in black by default.

However, your printer will still use minimal amounts of color cartridges to prime the system when your printer is in the initialization stage when turned on. Your printer also mixes all the color cartridges to make up another black, that is to prolong the life of the black cartridges.

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy
