The page counter cannot be set back to 0. The ink levels on your computer is automatically checked and displayed through the Status Monitor
If any of the ink cartridges installed in the printer is broken,
incompatible with the printer model, or improperly installed,
EPSON Status Monitor 3 will not display an accurate calculation for the
amount of ink remaining in any of the ink cartridges. Be sure to replace
or reinstall any ink cartridge indicated by EPSON Status Monitor 3.
SSC utility is used for resetting waste ink counter, not for ink level counter (chip at ink tank). If you wish to reset ink level counter (chip), you must use hardware resetter, or use CISS chip with autoreset function.
It sounds like you have incompatible cartridges for your printer... Some folks have reported that disabling the Status monitor and turning the printer off/on, plus rebooting the computer can solve this but that's just something I've heard.
You may want to double check with the ink supplier that they have provided the correct cartridges for your DX rather than a CX model.
The cartridge may be defective, as I seen this numerous times, try buying another cartridge from a diffrent retailer and make sure the tape is removed before installing the cartridge.
If this works, you can contact Epson if it is there OEM cartridge that is defective for a refund or replacement.
Epson printers will clean the head if the printer is not used for a long period say a week. The only option is to switch on the computer and printer and give a noozle test every 2 -3 days. This will stop the printer from doing a head cleaning which uses the following amount of Ink
Thus if the head cleaning is done 4 times your black is half empty.
thus as the saying goes either you switch on the printer every day or loose the printer
I also had the same problem and now this is what I am doing, and now the cartridge is giving a good amount of prints that too image quality
