You can try this method and see if it overrides the printer counter.When you go to print with the ink and it gives the error press the black copy button on the printer then the color one after another way is..just try to copy any document load some paper then press the black copy button like if your doing a black copy then the error should come up,press black copy again and that should override it,do the same for the color goodluck.

All the lights of Epson CX5500 is blinking


I think the resetter you have downloaded is for resetting waste ink counter, not for ink level. For resetting ink level counter (that reach zero) use hardware resetter or use use chip with autoreset function. Ink level reach zero is ink out, after resetting ink level reach 100% (full). But it's just program, not actually.
