Dear SIr,

You can't. Once the chip registers as zero it ceases function, it cannot be reset. Thanks For Your Time,

Kodak printer works with genuine Kodak cartridges and that too brand new not refilled cartridges. The brand new cartridges have a certain code that is recognised by the Printer.Kindly buy genuine cartridges as the printer may be damaged by Non comaptible cartridges.

HOW DO YOU RESET PRINTER CHIP ON ESP7


On the ESP5 printers the cartridge has a "chip" and unlike other printers that have tried the "chip" method to keep you buying their ink cartridges, however they did not do it right from a business point of view. The installed a chip on the cartridge that "remembers" how much it has been used, which means it can be "reset" however Kodak, a very smart and innovated company, they watched all the other printer companies and saw what they were doing wrong, so when they saw the chip reset ability the came out to be able to refill the ink cartridge, they fixed the problem by using a simple fix.
They have a serial number only "read only" chip on their ink cartridge and the printer its self remembers the serial number so you cannot reuse the cartridge, now as you might think there is a limit on how many it will remember so I use my printer a lot so I kept all my cartridges to see how many it remembers before it overwrites the older numbers, unfortunately I found the number to be twenty so you would need twenty one cartridges and I keep track of them by having a number on them so I don't mix them up.
So the way it would work is you can without modifying your printer, it you first would need to buy twenty one color and twenty one black ink cartridges, number them to keep them in order then when you refill a cartridge you take the oldest one next to place into your printer and it will read as new. I know this is a wild way to do it but it works.
I have tried to remove the internal battery in the printer so the memory resets and that works but I also have to reload the printer firmware every time I change the cartridge to reset the memory and that is a lengthy and difficult thing to do each time you need a new ink cartridge. I also found that the firmware reload will not rest the numbers unless you remove the memory battery in the printer, another brick wall.
I am still working on a way to get the printer to reset the serial numbers more easy and haven't found a way yet but I will eventually find a way to do it so keep your eyes open on the internet because it will be in all the internet tech news when I make an easy and effective way to reset the printers serial number memory.
But until then the twenty one cartridge method is the easiest but a bit annoying to have twenty cartridges laying around just so you can refill them. Actually from a company point of view, Kodak was brilliant with this method to keep people buying real kodak ink cartridges, because the read only serial number chip on the ink cartridge, cannot be rewritten, it is like the difference between the memory in a computer, the ROM and RAM, ROM "Read Only Memory" and RAM "Random Access Memory" you can write to the RAM but you cannot write to the ROM so most ink cartridges use a writable memory chip, so the information on the amount of ink stays on the chip on the ink cartridge, and the Kodak uses a Read only chip and stores the information on the amount of ink in the cartridge within the printer its self so a chip resetting device will not work.
I am thinking I can make a cartridge like device that will click into the Kodak printer that will cycle threw twenty serial numbers so a user can reuse the cartridge after refilling it.
So keep watching the internet tech news and when it is available your will see the news of it.
