Chip Recognition I would really like to turn the chip recognition off as I have done in my 7600. Just to confirm I am talking about the Epson 4800 A2 desktop printer. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

How do i reset the ink cartridges in my epson stylus pro 4800

You can get a chip resetter from any of the places that sell refillable cartridges as I did. Works great. They generally sell for about 10 bucks or come with a complete set of the refillable cartridges. This device will also reset the chip on the waste tank so you won't need to go through the button pushing sequence found in the field service guide - that's the one that Epson doesn't want you to know about or have.

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.

reseter link and another

Red light flashes but the printer wont print

This error occurs when the chips on the cartridges are not recognised. Re-seat all cartridges and ensure they are pushed down firmly. Sliding a business card down the rear of the cartridges will help push the chips into the sensors for recognition. If this fails the chips may be faulty OR have been short circuited - note that even one faulty chip is highly unlikely, get it services to get the problem fixed.

I have an Epson Stylus Pro 7600 with a Agfa Sherpa 24M sticker on it. Baught some cartridges from Epson but I get Wrong ink message. Any way to work around this problem?

You need to either buy AGFA cartridges ot apparently you can take the chip off the AGFA cartridge and put it on a Epson or compatible. It will always say it's empty but should still work

The ink tanks have been replaced(refilled canon tanks), but the printer is still showing default setting ,with the orange warning light flashing 15 times sayingb there is no ink

there is a recognition chip on the ink cartridges, which is used as a counter for ink usage. if you re-fill the cartridges, the chip is NOT automatically reset. normally you can buy a small rest-tool in the same shop where you bought the re-fill kit.

Epson s20 printer ink not recognised

All printers are being manufactured using chip recognition software. They make lots of money selling you ink. Here's the solution: Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Print heads won't come clean

To really clean the epson 7600, alternately print a nozzle check and then run a cleaning. Do this 8 times in a row. If that does not fix the problem, it could be that you need to replace the cleaning assembly. You could also try just cleaning off the wiper blade in the cleaning assembly. You need to remove the left side cover to get at the wiper.
Here is a link for the service manual SP76-9600_service manual.pdf I'm only including this for the instructions on removing the side panel, and for recognition of the wiper blade.
You can do your own cleaning assembly replacement if you have any sort of experience in that sort of thing, But if you don't, I would recommend leaving that to a tech. (But it is pricey.)

Can I turn off the ink counter on 9800?

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

Epson Stylus Pro 9600 vs Agfa Sherpa44

The Agfa Sherpa is not manufactured by Epson. Both Epson and Agfa buy and retag their printers from Mutoh.
I do not know if the 44 is the same as Epson 7600 or 9600, but it should fit the same cartridges.

If the printer does not accept the cartridges, that means that there is something different in the software stored in the Epson cartridge chip.

In this case you will be only able to use only Agfa or Mutoh Falcon cartridges.
