Can I turn off the ink counter on 9800?

Can I turn off the cartridge chip recognition (ink counter) on the Epson 7800/9800 like with the 4000/7600/9600? How about the 4800 or 4880?

Why would you want to turn off the counter? Doing so would allow you to run the machine completely dry resulting in major print head damage?

You cannot turn off the counter, but you can purchase a chip resetter.

Hope this is helpfull

    Your answer is so short sided, People do use refil carts that are clear and as such its very easy to see ink levels. The counters can be disabled on the older Epson's (7600 and so on) and that's why people are always looking to do so on the newer models. When the chip sensor pins eventually bend and break, like one of mine just did it was the easiest way to fix it. Hope this was helpful as well.

How do I reset my Epson T200XL ink cartridges?


Resetting the Epson Ink Cartridge Chip With Software A freeware program called SSC Service Utility enables users to download and install software that helps to manage their Epson printer. The software offers several functions, one of which is resetting the ink cartridge chip. Other settings allow users to freeze the internal ink counters or to reset the internal ink counters. It supports over 100 Epson printer models, but some printers may not respond to the commands from the software.
Using a Cartridge Reset Tool A cartridge reset tool is a small plastic piece that fits against the cartridge. The contacts on the reset tool correspond to the contacts on the printer's ink cartridge. When connected to the ink cartridge, the cartridge reset tool indicates the resetting of the ink cartridge with a green LED light. The reset tool is beneficial not just for resetting the chip, but also for allowing the printer to use all of the ink in the cartridge.

Troubleshooting Issues With the Reset Tool

Buyers should be sure to check the description for each reset tool carefully to determine whether they can reset their Epson printer cartridge with the tool. If the wrong cartridge is attempted or the reset tool is simply unable to reset the cartridge, users see either a red LED light or no light at all. In some cases, they simply cannot reset the chip any further. Before disposing of a reset tool, always test it on multiple ink cartridges.

My epson rx650 ink pad replacement.


Epson have there reset's pretty locked up, Agents have to register to gain axcess rights to software program tool that resets purge counter (waste count rset) , there are 7 pads in these printers just felt blocks that suck up ink and the electronic counter. all colours are mixed in felt so no draining guess you could wash them out but it is the counter that will stop you, wont go till reset. I have seen some after market ink chip resets but dont know if they work.

Epson about 6 months ago sealed up their tec support download system, now we have to identify agent and rep who is downloading the "eagle" software that is the Epson adj software that allows adjustment and reset of waste ink counter.

Hello I have replaced ink to the printer and i have this error num 10000160 do you have solution to this problem. I try to reset without results. Itzik


Many of the Epson printers ink cartridges have a sensor thatallows the printer and the associated software knows when to replace theprinter ink cartridges (even when the cartridges have ink within them) and whenthe printer needs to be cleaned. You mayreceive error messages if that sensor is faulty. In that case you shouldreplace that sensor. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

How to reset 73/91 Cartridges for Epson CX5500


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.

Ink shows empty when toner is not even close to empty


there is one thing that if you refill the cartriage and then use again then still ink indicator shows low ink as its' ckt is designed so.

there is no problem you can print easily.
your printer will show correct ink level when you put in new cartriage.

but remember one thing that if your printer stops printing and shows message on computer that no ink in cartriage ,, then you need to reset printer counter, (this resetting process is present in your printer manual)

so no problem in printing, it shows low ink because the circuit inside it is designed soo.

so that you purchase new cartriage.
(remember : you need to reset the counter , refer to manual)

How can i refil an OEM epson 9800 cartridge


there are many aftermarket ink manufacturers out there. I have been printing for 18+ years and have learned the hard way it does not pay to use aftermarket inks. The headache and amount of reprints you must do will eat into your profits and defeat the savings from the ink.

Most aftermarket ink companies also sell a chip resetter with there bulk ink systems.

Again, I highly recomend Epson Ultrakrome Inks

Epson service call error message 00010014


The 00010014 error code indicates that the Ink System Pressure Sensor reports low pressure.
This error usually is caused by an Ink Cartridge that leaks pressure.

thanks for rating
